LOS ANGELES (AP) — There are 2 1/2 weeks left for Warner Bros. Television and CBS to decide the fate of “Two and a Half Men.”
CBS is set to unveil its fall schedule for advertisers in New York on May 18. That puts deadline pressure on the network, Warner and the show’s executive producer to develop a post-Charlie Sheen version of the sitcom or end it.
An executive close to the situation said the parties are weighing if the show will return, who could replace Sheen in the cast and whether a revamped “Two and a Half Men” could be ready for fall or have to wait until midseason.
The executive spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because Warner and CBS would not authorize public comment on the show’s status.
