Yahoo News ^ | 03/07/11 | Yahoo News

Posted on 03/07/2011 2:14:11 PM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

Warner Bros. Television says it has fired Charlie Sheen from the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men." The studio that produces the CBS series said the decision was made after "careful consideration." Sheen's erratic personal life had prompted Warner to suspend production on the show for the season, and Sheen in return had been waging an angry media campaign against the show's producers.

So??? Every show/series comes to an end. In his case his real life became more bizzare than his character’s life, but I’ve always said he was pretty much playing himself.

Modern Family is a better show followed closely by The Middle.

Anyone else would have to be an idiot to hire this guy.

Why hire a loser that is going to destroy himself and possibly take you with him.

My idea for a series finale: Bob Newhart reprises his ‘Dr. Bob Hartley” character... and wakes up in an institutionalized setting, having been depressed since wife Emily died... and Bob says something like “What the hell kind of drugs are you giving me - I’ve had the strangest dreams...”

I fully think that Jon Cryer and crew could make a better show. Charlie to womanizer is getting berry, berry old (in the works of that old SNL schtick - Baseyball be berry berry good to me!)

Cryer can be hysterically funny when given the chance....

They should build a show around the Mother, maid and Allen. Drop the kid too, he’s useless.

Well, Charlie has his goddesses to console him. Assuming he still has enough money saved to support them, that is.

My bad, assuming his goddesses are there due to his fame and fortune.

I never watched the show so I don’t know what goes on there. Maybe if they wrote a drug crazed freak into the script they could keep Charlie.

I won’t be surprised if the next headline confirms that Charlie Sheen and Glenn Beck are just trading TV shows.

No, I got it, my comment was aimed at Charlie. I find the sarc tag to be for the witless anyway.

The only thing I know about that show is what I see on the promos. I've never watched one nanosecond of it. My family members love it in spite of the fact that Sheen is a degenerate swine. Poor America.

Give the devil his due: I thought he did an excellent job in "Platoon."

Yeah, agree....a real turd bucket, no value added except to connect Allen to the ex-wife and give Drunk Boy some closure on the hard-to-believe doting-uncle 'fondness' for the boy.

Good riddance, clown. There’s gotta be 100 actors that could do as good or better in that role.

I never got the show - not at all. I mean, how many different ways can you joke about boobs, penises and premarital sex before you simply run out of ideas?

According to TMZ - he’ll be suing for the 8 cancelled shows at $2million per. ($16 million)!!!!

His character can be easily written off; several FReepers have offered great replacement storylines.

The true ensemble characters were Evelyn, Berta, Alan, Herb and Jake. Charlie simply had to provide the straight lines which required a few facial expressions and some timing.

The writers create the show. Sheen’s success was by proxy.

Sheen - what a loser.

The kid isn’tmuch of a kid anymore they need to find a way to write him out.If there is a mother still alice she should come back to get him and at the same time perhaps a surprise kid could show up.Dear uncle so and so what ever Sheens character name was could die in a car accident and one of the other guys friends could be suddenly widowed and need a place to stay....perhaps bring gthe new kid in with him? Introduce someone who’s been out of the dating sceen since the 1980’s...lots of funny stuff there to write about.

I always liked the grown sons’ mother, and the housekeeper best of all. Jon Cryer is fine but yes, the kid is way too old now to be of any value to the show. WB could find another “Charlie,” I’m sure, if need be.

Otherwise, just cancel the show altogether!

Actually, Herb, the ex-wife’s current husband, could assume a larger role. He’s pretty darned funny in his own right. Allen and Herb would make a funny pair since they’re both pretty pathetic characters.

What is it with everyone coming down on Sheen? Sure he has some drug and ego issues. Still, he role on the show is pretty darn good and nobody else could pull it off like Sheen.
