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."
Typical drug addict progressive/liberal big mouth.
Total a-hole degenerate.
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.
He’s going to have LOTS of amends on his 9th step list...
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 ....
Too loony even for SeeBS!
>>Are they happy with the $5 billion they already made off me
Yes, the big evil corporation! And you were paid handsomely for your play-acting, Charlie!
That, and sheer stupidity.
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.
Hey, you may be on to a great idea there. That show could make you a lot of money!!
Too bad... back in the day he was a decent actor and a funny guy. Now he’s just a drug-addled loser.
Another liberal Hollywood big-shot who just turns out to be anti-Semitic.... Hmmmm, who would have guessed it?
People need to wake up and realize MOST libs are anti-semitic!
it is supposed to IMPLY a boy being raised by two dads ala PC.
I wonder if some of these shows just have a few neilson families in the crew.
Should keep him busy for the remainder of his days.
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.
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.
Methinks he doth inflate his talent and importance.
