Kate Walsh, 'Chelsea Lately'If you were frantically trying to figure out the connection between Kate Walsh and Charlie Sheen during his Comedy Central Roast, to understand why she was on the dais, there's a reason you didn't come up with anything. On 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Walsh admitted she and Sheen met that night.

"Literally right before I went on I was like, 'Hey, how you doing? Sorry,'" she explained.

The two must have hit it off, though, as friends because she wound up watching both the Roast and the premiere of 'Two and a Half Men' at Sheen's house. Handler, of course, assumed that meant the two were dating, which Walsh was more than happy to confirm.

Charlie Sheen, Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. Settle Lawsuit

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 26th 2011 7:25PM
In the latest act of Charlie Sheen's atonement tour, the former 'Two and a Half Men' star has reached a settlement with Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros., according to a report in Deadline. Sheen had been suing the parties for $100 million, claiming he was wrongfully terminated from the hit sitcom.

In a statement, Warner Bros. confirmed news of a settlement. "Warner Bros. Television, Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen have resolved their dispute to the parties' mutual satisfaction. The pending lawsuit and arbitration will be dismissed as to all parties. The parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality over the terms of the settlement."

Last week, the L.A. Times reported that a settlement was likely to pay Sheen somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 million.

While Sheen is looking to clean up his many messes as he attempts to sell his 'Anger Management' pilot, the Season 9 premiere of 'Two and a Half Men,' which killed off Sheen's Charlie Harper character, drew massive ratings.

This week didn't let up. Between the Emmys and the start of Fall TV, it's all kind of a blur -- but there were some moments that stood out.

The Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Emmy nominees putting on a little beauty pageant warmed our jaded hearts, Charlie Harper's death on 'Two and a Half Men' was cathartic and Sheen's speech at his Comedy Central Roast was actually ... funny.

As the week moved on, we fell hook, line and sinker for the publicity stunt that was the 'X Factor' Flasher. And the final TV scene of 'All My Children,' a bizarre cliffhanger overflowing with soapy goodness, pretty much tied the whole week together.

Check out the clips after the jump to relive the week that was, and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll.

Charlie Sheen Roast Ratings Were Comedy Central Record

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 20th 2011 5:15PM
Somehow, Charlie Sheen is still winning -- in the TV ratings game, anyway.

Comedy Central's Roast of Sheen was the highest rated roast in the network's history, as 6.4 million viewers tuned in to watch Sheen skewered. Including re-airs, the total audience reached 10 million. It was the second-highest rated telecast in Comedy Central history.

Not only was the Sheen roast a ratings success on TV screens, but chatter about the event also dominated social media. According to trendrr.tv, the Roast garnered 450,000 social mentions, which dwarfed several other prime-time Fall TV premieres, including 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'Two and Half Men.'

In terms of laughs, the roast didn't disappoint. Comedians and celebrities from Jeffrey Ross to Mike Tyson to Roastmaster Seth MacFarlane gave Sheen their best shots, making fun of his drug history, public breakdown and affinity for prostitutes.

Charlie's Ashes and Walden Schmidt Share Scene on 'Two and a Half Men' (VIDEO)

'Two and a Half Men' - 'Nice to Meet Your, Walden Schmidt'For a brief moment, Charlie Harper and Walden Schmidt shared the screen on the season premiere of 'Two and a Half Men' (Mon., 9PM ET on CBS). It would turn out to be Charlie's last appearance -- sort of -- and Walden's first. Granted, Charlie was ashes at the time.

After quickly moving past the funeral of Charlie, filled with jilted ex-lovers, before the opening credits even began, Alan began the process of moving on. As part of that, he decided to scatter Charlie's ashes on the beach.

Why he took the lid off the urn before he got to the beach was pretty obvious once a soaking wet Ashton Kutcher peeked through the back door. This way we get the sight gag of Charlie's ashes flying through the air as Alan shrieks and throws his arms up.

Charlie Sheen on Telling His Boss Off, Losing it All, on 'Comedy Central Roast' (VIDEO)

'The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen'Charlie Sheen responded to the panel at the end of 'The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen' (Mon., 10PM ET on Comedy Central), but in a way he was responding more to an America that watched him seemingly lose his mind, lose his show and then generally fall apart.

He talked about his lavish and wild lifestyle, and his successes on 'Two and a Half Men.' "I did the one thing that everyone in America really wishes they could do," he said. "I told my boss to f*** off! And then it was gone."

It was the more coherent Sheen we've seen lately on late night talk shows, and even on his subdued Emmy appearance, but still with a bit of an edge. "I'm Charlie Sheen, and in here burns an eternal fire," he said. "I just have to remember to keep it away from a crack pipe."

Charlie Sheen's Atonement Tour Will Culminate at the Roast, But What's Next?

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 19th 2011 3:00PM
Charlie Sheen seems like a changed man these days. After a long period of hibernation following the unhinged, manic period that got him booted off 'Two and a Half Men,' Sheen has re-emerged in recent weeks, in advance of his Comedy Central Roast (Mon., Sept. 19, 10PM ET), looking and sounding downright normal. What's made him see the light?

For starters, the guy wants to work in Hollywood again.

As his Sheen-ferno raged on, the pinnacle being his Violent Torpedo of Truth tour, he burned nearly every bridge he'd built over his almost 40-year career in the entertainment industry. He now has to convince TV networks and movie studios that they can trust him enough to even consider working with him in the future, not to mention taking on the expense of insuring someone with such highly-publicized erratic behavior.

After throwing CBS, Warner Bros., Chuck Lorre and his 'Two and a Half Men' castmates under a wildly careening bus, he's finally swallowing his pride and apologizing. But is it sincere? Is it enough? Or is it just another way to grab headlines?

Roast of Charlie Sheen - Monday September 19, 10 p.m. ET/PT, Comedy

If anyone out there is still interested in the Charlie Sheen train-wreck tour of 2011, it's making a stop on Comedy this week - about 30 weeks too late. Sheen's appearance at the Emmys proved he lost his sense of humour along with his dignity around the time he got fired from 'Two and a Half Men' but hopefully the professional comics and various celebs can keep this thing funny. Seth MacFarlane of 'Family Guy' is the ring leader, and roasters include Jon Lovitz, Kate Walsh, William Shatner and Slash.

Charlie Sheen with Matt Lauer on 'Today'Charlie Sheen seems to have come out on the other side of his public breakdown, which culminated with his firing from the popular sitcom 'Two and A Half Men.' Speaking with Matt Lauer Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Sheen sounded almost normal, as if he were talking about someone else who went nuts and lost his job.

Of course, he's already heard everything bad everyone could say about him, having taped his Comedy Central Roast last week. It got personal, but Sheen understood. "It was entertainment, but I think if you're gonna roast a guy like me, there can't be any boundaries," he said. "There can't be anything off limits. You know? I was sitting there, and I thought, okay, I volunteered for this. You know? And that was an odd feeling because, who would do that?"

Charlie Sheen, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Maybe it's because we're on the virtual eve of the new season of 'Two and a Half Men,' and he's no longer a part of it, but a more reflective Charlie Sheen appeared on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Sheen admitted he had been out of control, and it's only when he started losing everything that it started to sink in. "I thought I could come back, you know," he said. "Kind of like you did."

"Well at least one of us got their job back," Jay Leno said, adding Sheen's catchphrase, "Winning!"

When Leno asked if he was still angry at CBS or anyone over there for what went down, Sheen responded immediately, "No, no. I'd have fired my a**, too."
