‘Two And A Half Men’ Shut Down

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of “Two and a Half Men” for the remainder of this season.

Star Charlie Sheen’s recent troubles and statements to the media led to the decision.

“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of “Two and a Half Men” for the remainder of the season,” CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television said in a statement.

The announcement was issued hours after Sheen called a radio show and lashed out at co-creator Chuck Lorre.

Sheen was hospitalized after an overnight party in late January and was subsequently admitted into rehab. His absence prompted the suspension of production of the hit show.

Sheen recently expressed disappointment that production had not resumed on the show, saying as recently as Thursday that he was ready to get back to work on March 1.

    what a waste of talent guess the demons won

  6. Bob says:

    Charlie Sheen’s lack of character so overshadows his acting career that one would have to be nuts to hire him for anything anymore. His acting career is finished.

  7. ODB says:

    From his picture it looks like he’s drunk .

  8. chris says:

    Good! there are sooo many others who are legit and stable who wish to be actors……hire them! and quitr with these guys who cant handle life!

  9. Lucy says:

    The show is only funny if the character is acting. Charlie is not really acting, he is playing himself. It is best that he go into Rehab for 6 months and hopefully come out sober. Then CBS can start thinking about shooting the next season or just shooting Charlie!

    Charlie is proof you can quit doing Alcohol and drugs, but suffer from the disease even worse when you are off the drugs & Alcohol. He’s also proof that the disease of drug addiction & Alcoholism really isn’t about alcohol or drugs. It only looks like it. It’s really about the person having Grave Mental and Emotional Problems and using the drugs and alcohol as Medication. The problem is the disease keeps getting worse and worse unless you treat “causes and conditions”
    Just to quit Drinking only treats the symptons not the disease. We see it all the time in A.A. A.A. is not about quitting Drinking. It’s about surrendering to the fact that the Alcoholic Suffers from many maladies and we need a power much greater than ourselves to heal . Charlie thinks He is the higher Power and that’s whats going to Kill Him. Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.
    When you have fame and Fortune Like Charlie it’s almost Impossible to see how Sick you are. Too bad.
    He could probably be a nice Guy if He could Get rid of the Defects and Demons

    If he’s not careful, Charlie Sheen is going to go the route of Michael Madsen. We’ll be seeing him on “Celebrity Rehab” in four years.

    Alex Jones is awesome!!

    Just wait until kcal 9 viewers discover Alex Jones.. OMG.

  16. bob f says:

    Well sad end to the season. I hope things work out. Charlie is one hell of an actor. Charlie is making a dump truck load of money but I’m sure chuck is no angel to make him go off like that. There is always two sides to every story.

  17. Bill Wesley says:

    The series shouldn’t have to end just because one of the players is a live wire.
    But then, without Sheen, the show would most definitely be missing some chemistry … or at least chemicals…

  18. mark silvers says:

    Wat an utter jerk and a baby for his latest rant. It’s too bad that others have to suffer (cast/crew) due to this alcholic. I give credit to the network for shutting down for the season and not cancelling the show entirely.
