Charlie Sheen's radio rant leads CBS to cancel "Two and a Half Men"
radio-info.com ^ | 2/25/11 | radio-info.com

Posted on 02/25/2011 9:43:55 AM PST by raccoonradio

Controversial TV star Charlie Sheen has been on the radio a lot lately, but his last outburst on a radio talk show went too far for CBS and Warner Brothers, which made the extraordinary move to halt production of its top-rated show for the rest of the season. On the Alex Jones show, Sheen ripped into "Two and a Half Men" show creator Chuck Lorre, calling him at one point a "turd" and an "un-evolved mind." He also had strong words for Alcoholics Anonymous, party girls, and even Thomas Jefferson.

Sheen says, "Are they happy with the $5 billion they already made off me or do they think they can turn it into $10 [billion] in a couple more seasons?" Charlie continued. "I'm just saying, you know [the show] is a runaway freakin' juggernaut. Do what you've gotta do -- I'll go make movies with superstars and not work with idiots." In halting production of "Two and a Half Men," CBS said "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."

Ironically, one of Sheen's comments also dared CBS & Warner brothers to pull the plug on the show, saying, "I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show and all that, and so I'm just sort of seeing if they're telling the truth or not." Access Hollywood has the audio of Sheen's comments. Sheen attempted rehab and made news for allegedly involving himself with hookers and drugs. He also angered his co-stars and sitcom show crew when show tapings were first temporarily halted, affecting the schedules and lives of co-workers. Sheen earned an estimated $1.2 million per episode of "Men."

Posting because it’s beyond belief what a jerk this guy is turning out to be (yeah like he wasn’t one before?) Guy has a job where he makes millions per episode and drugs and hookers screw it all up, and who knows, if he keeps going like this he could wind up like Michael Jackson: dead. But hey, this guy thinks he’s a real genius and people will keep seeing his movies and TV shows (and who knows, they just may) and yes,
too bad about the co-workers who are out in the cold with the cancellation of the show’s season, or cancellation permanently.

Guess he made these comments on the Alex Jones show...you know, the conspiracy theory guy...the same show where he made his “call me insane, but did the Twin Towers look like they were brought down by a controlled demolition?” comments.

I think Sheen and Mel Gibson need to get a place together and let the cameras follow them around for what would surely be a top-rated reality show.

How in the Hell is this show popular? I’ve seen an episode. Charlie hooks up with women. His douche brother can’t and fights with his ex-wife. The kid and maid make one-liners.

I’m sure the co-stars, the carpenters, make-up, script writers, camera men, stage hands, sound, lighting and everyone else associated with this show are thrilled.

I’ll wager that they aren’t making $1.2 Million/episode. Now, they have no job at all.

Gee, thanks Chuckles ....

Charlie trashed AA in his radio tirade. IMHO, he won't find his bottom until he runs out of party funds and in his case, he's likely to kill himself first.

You should be working for a network. They are all just crazy and corrupt enough to love that idea. Until Charlie started getting personal with the network and specific producers they were probably licking their chops over a ratings increase from new viewers tuning in to watch their star’s slow motion suicide.

Mel has become messed up recently and doesn't profit.

Charlie is just a pig determined to take everyone with him...Because he is just so wonderful. And the other folks on the show simply pander to him...

IT'S CALLED MONEY!! That little porker is the highest paid kid in TV.

The show “Redeye” sort of does that. They have been running a segment called “Trouble in Sheen”. It sort a take off on a Frontline or CBS segment on an obscure country like one of the “stans” Its hilarious if the subject wasn't so pitifull

Sheen says Bush behind 9/11—it was staged to justify Iraq war

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/march2006/230306Sheen_HEvents.htm

>>”Call me insane but did it sort of look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition?”

That’s what Hollywood bad boy and actor Charlie Sheen asked his brother after watching the news coverage of 9/11 back in 2001.

In an interview with Alex Jones this week, a liberal radio talk show host for GCN Radio Network, Sheen relived his thoughts and shared his theories on what happened that historic day four-and-a-half years ago. According to Sheen, not only were President Bush and his administration involved in what he calls a “conspiracy theory,” but the press was too.

“It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets: that feels like a conspiracy theory,” Sheen said.

http://www.mediaite.com/online/charlie-sheens-rant-leads-to-cbs-cancellation-of-two-and-a-half-men/

>>Most of Sheen’s interview with Jones centered around his private life and his career as he rambled about the “goddesses” he dates, the “Vatican assassin warlocks” he works with, and the great fiction that is substance addiction (“I’m cured,” he assures Jones, “I’m done.”). Of the most political significance is the aforementioned slam of Jefferson and attacks of “Bible-clingers” that disapprove of his “bitchin’” lifestyle. There is a remarkable amount of material to work with in the 18-minute interview.

But it was the turn toward the EP [exec prod.] of the hit sitcom that lead to the halting of the production. CBS issued the following statement: “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.”

Sounds like the root of Sheen's problem is that he doesn't think he's making enough millions. "Greedy corporations" are profiting and he's not.

This is what happened to Farrah Fawcett way back when. She thought she was indispensable, tried to stand up for more bucks and her career was never the same.

Maybe so; he wants billions not just millions!

From Breitbart’s Big Hollywood:
http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9LJKSNO2&show_article=1

In his interview with Jones, Sheen repeatedly evoked violent images and ideas. He also derided Lorre in an attack that reeked of anti-Semitism.

“There’s something this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine—yeah, that’s Chuck’s real name—mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy, bro. Check it, Alex: I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process,” Sheen said.

“Last I checked, Chaim, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write,” he said.

Lorre, who was born Charles Levine, is a veteran producer whose hits include “The Big Bang Theory,” “Dharma & Greg” and “Cybill.”

A far better prescription for a sitcom is what the producers of the delightful BIG BANG THEORY have found:
it’s like FRASIER for science geeks.
(Come to think of it 2 1/2 Men could have also been called
The Big Bang Theory)

Poor Charlie and many of his Hollywood Kin throw away good TV Gigs because of their Drug Addictions. Hollywood and their leaders continue to turn a deaf ear to the Drug Problems inherent in their culture, thusly, condoning same by their inactions?

Nobody in their right minds(Charlie Sheen)would squander $1,200,000 in cash per episode of his TV Show for a fling with two porno chicks?

Interesting is that in his rant against Chuck Lorre, he kept calling him Chaim Levine. Lorre’s real name is Charles Levine, so what point was Sheen trying to make by using the Jewish version of Lorre’s real name? Is he going off the deep end like Mel?

My favorite sitcom. Very well-written, amazingly delivered by Jim Parsons particularly. I just wish they’d get off the “sex as the topic of every episode” kick - they could do extremely well on almost any topic.

Looks like his liberal, socialist father's beliefs (Martin Sheen) are taking their toll on Charlie. The bitter anti-corporate sentiments likely run deep in that family.
