Kutcher Sets A Record For Sitcom Viewers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ashton Kutcher has bragging rights over Charlie Sheen.

Kutcher’s debut in the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” on Monday was seen by 27.7 million people. The Nielsen company says that’s more than any other episode in the first eight seasons, when Sheen was the star.

The sitcom’s previous best came in May 2005 following the final episode of “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

    dumb. shut it off after ten min. oh well. Charlie’s revenge.

  • Vero

    It just wasn’t the same. I like Kutcher but its just not the same. Why did they have to be so brutal and make Charlie die.

    • RON

      Vero, It was because Charlie was an @SSHOLE !!! He, like the GROCERY unions, didn’t appreciate what he had and criticized the MAN that made him and the show, a HUGE SUCCESS.

      And for ALL you NAYSAYERS, you HAVE BEEN and CONTINUE to BE WRONG. PULL your HEADS out of your @SS and watch something else, because it is still a FANTASTIC show and ASHTON is PERFECT for the part.

      Those HUGE ratings show that you are all sooooo WRONG.

    yeah…but the show needs Charlie in a bad way, we turned away shortly after the arrival of Kutcher (no reflection on Kutcher just that Charlie makes the show)…

    Now c’mon -we all know it was because Ashton was naked most of the show…. Great ratings though :) It was good without it – but very funny with it ….

  • Jenny

    I just watch the show to see what happen to Charlie. i promise you I won’t watch the next episode.

  • sheenlover

    I only watched to see what was going on. Kutcher is weak and no way will carry the show. I will stick to the reruns. My suggestion is get rid of Kutcher and bring Charlie back. That is the show’s only hope. I can’t see watching this one any more. Not the same and very weak in my opinion.

    BFD, after a year of free publicity and hype every tv in America should have been tuned in … they weren’t.
