CBS & WB Pull Plug On 2 1/2 Men (Sorry Charlie)
Deadline Hollywood ^ | 02-24-11 | NELLIE ANDREEVA

Posted on 02/24/2011 8:01:13 PM PST by Lazlo in PA

UPDATED: As Two And A Half Men star Charlie Sheen's erratic behavior escalated today in a series of verbal assaults on the show's creator-executive producer Chuck Lorre, the sitcom's network and studio did the only thing they could in the situation: pull the plug. But they only did it for this season. (Two and a Half Men was scheduled to resume production on Monday for 4 more episodes). So the door is left open for a possible ninth season. "Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros TV have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season," the two companies said in a statement.

Looks like ol' Chuck better find another gig if he wants to stay flush in hookers, strippers and blow.

Couldn't happen to a better truther.

I have only seen a few episodes.
It’s pretty ribald but funny.

Thats a cool Slammin Sammy Snead Hat

But Charlie could be about to wreck out.

I’m partial to the Mystery Science Theater 3000 TV show. Does anybody know if Charlie will reprise his brilliant role as Servo? I like to riff on bad movies myself.

Agreed. If it wasn't for the boob jokes, dick jokes and sex jokes, a typical 2-1/2 men episode would last for about 3 minutes.

I have never seen a single minute of that show.
Sometimes I feel like I’m out of the loop.

Eh, yeah it was a decent enough show, not quite my normal fair but it had it’s moments.

What bothers me is this is the consequence for all of the hookers/strippers/blow/booze Sheen consumes, the end product of engaging in that stuff and it will never be talked of in that way.

Well they wrote Rhoda out of ‘Rhoda’, so I guess they can do without Charlie.

Yep, and in a very dangerous situation wherein “they like me when I’m drunk/high whatever”.

This man makes 1.2 million per episode.

That’s pathetic!

What a freaking loser to throw that away.

What an even bigger loser to throw his health away with all the drugs, alcohol, and hookers.

If this is what money does to you, I don’t want any more than I need to pay the bills.

I’m sure Martin is just so proud.

On a different note,

Dallas strip club owners thank Charlie Sheen for being in rehab during the Super Bowl, stating that with Charlie gone it freed up enough strippers to entertain the multitudes that showed up in Dallas.

Astonished.

Most likely he already is getting them, If his agent was any good this guy, like Seinfeld, has the really big bucks coming in from the back-end on the syndication deals.
More than enough money for Charlie to pay his monthly child support and be in Porn stars and Coke for many life times.
Truly Pathetic and Sad.

BY the way the really sad part is all the people now out of work that depended on that show for an income and I am not just talking about the stars, it's everyone from the director down to the errand boy.
Selfish and Immature Charlie is costing a lot of people here.

Not to worry. I hear that they are coming out with "CSI: Schenectady" to fill the void. That should keep the crew working.

MST3K.... One of the worst things to happen to my TV viewing experience.

No show is too good or too bad to be spared live commentary in our household.

Damn you, MST!

It doesn’t matter much. The left will throw him under the bus faster than Lindsy what’s her face.

Drugs. Drugs and alcohol and bad decision making.

You don't see Bill Gates with hookers and cocaine and he's got plenty of money. He also has common sense and a work ethic.

Money allows people like Charlie Sheen to make huge mistakes with what they have (no sense and no decency). Drugs, alcohol and bad decision making are what caused the problems to start with. Money just fueled the fire.

Anybody wanna bet that Charlie will still be alive by the end of the summer?

Heard him on a radio show last week. He himself said they only had one more show shoot and then they had the summer off.
