Jon Cryer compares Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher on 'Good Day LA'Since the Charlie Sheen meltdown and his eventual split from 'Two and A Half Men,' he and Jon Cryer haven't really been in touch. With the season premiere next week, the subject is coming up more and more, and Cryer again answered questions about Sheen and his replacement, Ashton Kutcher, Thursday on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox).

Cryer was asked again if he and Sheen had been in touch, and his answer hasn't changed. "God bless him, I wish him all the best," said Cryer. "But this question has come up so many times where people are like, 'Hey, is he calling you?' It's like, 'No.'"

'Two and a Half Men' Top TenSince production on Season 9 got underway the 'Two and a Half Men' set has been shrouded in secrecy. Promos have teased that all will be revealed in the premiere episode.

Last night, however, we got a sneak peek at the new Sheen-less 'Men' courtesy of David Letterman and 'Late Show.' And there was not a bowling shirt in sight.

Series stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones presented last night's Top Ten list on 'Late Show,' which, fittingly enough, was The Top Ten Reasons to Watch the New Season of 'Two and a Half Men.'

Watch highlights from the Top Ten after the jump.

Seven Possible Recasts for Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men'

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 7th 2010 9:03AM
Charlie Sheen, 'Two and a Half Men'While nobody wants to see him go, of course, in practical terms we must consider the possibility of a 'Two and a Half Men' without Charlie Harper. While the show has been renewed through the next two seasons, Charlie Sheen has expressed interest in leaving; his contract is up this season. Even if it's just a negotiating ploy, CBS is probably considering how the show could continue without him.

Tiger Woods was immediately interested in doing the show after he'd heard how many different women Charlie has slept with, but he backed out when he found out it was all acting on the show. Luckily, the PGA welcomed him back with open arms mere moments before the entire sport collapsed.

Conan O'Brien was briefly considered, but NBC said no before they even heard what it was. When advised that he probably wouldn't be needed until next September, when the network's hold over O'Brien expires anyway, they relented. "At least," no one from NBC actually said, "...it would keep him the hell away from 11:30."

Deciphering the Charlie Sheen 'Two and a Half Men' Situation

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 2nd 2010 2:01PM
charlie_sheen_two_and_a_half_men_cbsIt was a shock to read yesterday that Charlie Sheen was reportedly not going to return to 'Two and a Half Men' next season. Could it be true that the star of CBS's top sitcom was ready to walk away from nearly a million bucks an episode because he was ready to "move on?"

Hmm... interesting. If Charlie is well enough to move on to other things, then why isn't he well enough to complete his run on 'Two and a Half Men?' Yes, the mixed signals are as difficult to read as smoke signals.

On one hand, if Charlie Sheen is really so damaged by his personal issues -- domestic upheaval, overzealous partying, the pre-emptive entry into rehab, the sober coach on set to counsel him during his return -- how would he be ready to move on? And if he can't work anymore even with all the help he's getting from the network and the production company, not to mention cast and crew and producers, could he do better elsewhere?

Only 22 Eps for 'Two and a Half Men' This Year

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 23rd 2010 10:00PM
jon_cryer_charlie_sheen_two_and_a_half_menToday was the day for CBS and Warner Brothers to get the bad news about how Charlie Sheen's rehab has affected 'Two and a Half Men.' Instead of 24 episodes as planned, Chuck Lorre announced that there will be only 22 episodes of 'Two and a Half Men' this season.

The original plan was that Warner Brothers would deliver 24 episodes of the top-rated sitcom to CBS, a plus because the more they make, the more revenue is generated. That's not just this year, but syndication, as well.

Unfortunately, the reality is that Charlie Sheen's personal life and the fact that he was compelled to go into rehab has cost everyone involved a lot of money. Hell, as one of the highest paid actors on television, this action has cost Charlie Sheen almost $2 million in salary alone!

Welcome back, Charlie. I don't mean Charlie Sheen, who came back from rehab and was back at work on the set of the show. I'm talking about Charlie Harper, who has had his man berries crushed by Chelsea and the engagement and the prospect of a June wedding at the Bel Air hotel. For the first time in a long time, Charlie had his old spunky, devil-may-care attitude back. What a relief!

'Two and a Half Men' Crew Warned to Keep Quiet

Generally speaking, what happens in the workplace usually is not meant for media consumption. Unless it's a Karen Silkwood situation, employees know that you don't blab about your fellow workers. Except in show business! Apparently, the very idea of working on a set or in the production offices where glamorous stars are toiling is a reason to yap about what you see.

This is especially true when those glittery vessels of acting have questionable personal lives that have already been selling ad space in newspapers, magazines and web sites. This is all a preface to the report filed by TMZ.com that the 'Two and a Half Men' team have been told to keep quiet about Charlie Sheen.

Oh my my... have we seen the future of 'Two and a Half Men' and it's Alan and Charlie sitting on a couch vegetating, bickering and grateful to have each other to clean up their dribble? Maybe. And if you think Charlie's gotten over Chelsea, think again. Evelyn might want to hang on to the banquet hall at the Beverly Hills Hotel. More on that and the dancing Japanese Kabuki transsexuals after the jump.

Holy hoochey-mama! Looked like the old Charlie Harper was back by the time all was said and done. For a while there, it wasn't a certainty. Charlie had all the symptoms of a Woody Allen schlemiel as 'Two and a Half Men' ventured into territory that seemed out of kilter. It was like the Kubler-Ross five stages of grief. Fortunately, acceptance for Charlie was just a bender away. More on that and the $18,000, too, after the jump.

Charlie Sheen's Rehab Causes 'Men' To Shut Down

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 23rd 2010 7:55PM
charlie_sheen_two_and_a_half_menAbout a week ago, we were speculating on the question of whether Charlie Sheen's legal troubles would impact on 'Two and a Half Men's' future. Today, it was Charlie Sheen's personal problems that resulted in the show shutting down temporarily. Charlie Sheen has checked into rehab as a precautionary measure.

It's hard to see this as a precaution because for weeks now, Sheen's life has been spiraling out of control. The Aspen situation with wife Brooke Mueller, the felony charges and a relapse into substance abuse of some kind are all proof that, for now, Sheen is not able to continue with 'Two and a Half Men.'

According to The Wrap, shuttering 'Two and a Half Men' for some time could be a problem for CBS. The Monday night schedule hinges on 'Two and a Half Men,' and prolonged reruns when new episodes are airing all around the nine o'clock time slot could drag down the Nielsen numbers. Although considering how strong CBS remains on Monday, it would take more than some reruns to cripple CBS's comedy juggernaut.

Will Charlie Sheen's Legal Troubles Muck Up CBS's Fall Sked?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 18th 2010 10:01AM
charlie_sheen_two_and_a_half_men_2009When the TV executives meet the media at the annual CBS upfront presentation in May, there will be certainty and uncertainty when it comes to the Monday night sitcom anchor 'Two and a Half Men.' The certainty is that it will be in the line up because it was renewed for three years in 2009. The uncertainty is if Charlie Sheen will be on 'Two and a Half Men' in the face of his felony charges in Colorado.

There are implications beyond the obvious question of Charlie being there to do 'Two and a Half Men.' He's one of the highest paid actors on television -- approximately $20 million a season -- which accounts for a big chunk of the operating budget. Whether he's on air or written out for a while, he has to be paid.

Review: 'Two and a Half Men' - 'Crude and Uncalled For'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 2nd 2010 9:01AM
charlie_sheen_fetal_position_cbs(S07E14) Uh oh -- has Charlie made a critical error in his relationship with Chelsea? It depends on how to look at it, but the Humpster misplayed the situation in this episode and that "to be continued" at the end suggests that something wicked may be coming.

On the plus side, it looks like Alan won't be losing his man-cherry in the slammer, and Jake has a future in horror movie sound effects.

Alan has shown more talent on his man-dates with Herb than the Internet dates he's had. He was in rare form with the latest eHarmony hook-up, talking socks and sex. If he still had his ventriloquist's dummy, he would have pulled it out. But Alan did show us something we'd never seen from him before. The monster. Okay, it was just one lucky punch, but still...

Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer, the FBI and a death threat

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 21st 2010 1:00PM
jon_cryer_two_and_a_half_menWhen I read that there was a plot to kill Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer, I thought it had to be a joke. Jon Cryer? Seriously, what could "Alan Harper" have done to piss somebody off so badly that they want him dead? Then I read the TMZ item again -- bearing in mind that it's TMZ -- and learned the FBI is investigating a threat on Jon Cryer's life. The FBI doesn't mess around. They're like the IRS, you know -- no sense of humor.

Apparently, Jon Cryer is involved in a very nasty custody dispute with his ex-wife. The situation is so intense that Cryer contacted the authorities because he believed someone was trying to kill him. The word "hitman" was used, and as bizarre as that sounds, people have been known to go to such extremes. Law enforcement took Jon's worries seriously and questioned his ex-wife about her involvement. Nobody has been arrested, but the FBI worked on the case for a week.

Review: Two and a Half Men - Yay, No Polyps

There was a strange break in this episode of Two and a Half Men, like it might have been written by a couple of people who weren't communicating with each other at the time. For the most part, one half of it was very funny. For the other part, however, the jokes were lame and the situation strained. It all added up to an odd night, which is probably kind of how Charlie felt when he got himself cornered into a tricky situation. More after the jump.
