Charlie SheenWe reported yesterday how CBS is keen to lure Charlie Sheen back to 'Two and a Half Men' if a deal can be done. Now comes word that any possible deal hinges on Warner Bros., the studio who actually makes the comedy, agreeing to have Sheen back.

Plus, amid rumors that Sheen's been meeting with other networks to discuss his future, Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of HDNet, has thrown his hat into the ring and says he and Sheen are in talks about doing a reality TV series.

Jeff Rossen, the NBC 'Today' reporter who landed the first TV interview with Sheen to air since the controversy started, Tweeted Monday that, "To be clear, there are 2 companies involved. Sources say, CBS would be happy to take Charlie back, but he still needs to reach [a] deal with WB."

Did ABC Wait Too Long to Air Their Charlie Sheen Interview?

Andrea Canning talks to Charlie Sheen on 20/20 on March 1, 2011
At some point on Saturday evening, the folks at ABC News must have been feeling very proud of themselves.

Andrea Canning had just spent the day with Charlie Sheen, the first television reporter to do an extensive video with the actor since he let loose with various tirades on the radio and TMZ, causing CBS and the producers of 'Two and a Half Men' to shut things down for the season. ABC made the big announcement, calling it 'The First Interview,' and planned to debut it on 'Good Morning America' this morning, followed by a big splashy '20/20' special tonight.

It may have been the first television interview Sheen gave, but it sure as heck wouldn't be the last.

The folks at the Alphabet Net got scooped, then scooped again, and then scooped yet again. But the way the network has been reacting to these scoops makes us wonder if they think that it's still 1991 instead of 2011.

Charlie Sheen Spoils ABC's 'Exclusive' by Talking to NBC's 'Today'

Charlie SheenLast week radio listeners got more than an earful of Charlie Sheen's rantings and ravings, and now TV viewers can also get in on the act.

It's been reported that the 'Two and a Half Men' star caused even more controversy over the weekend by giving interviews to not one but two TV networks, with the each racing the other to be the first to air this morning.

First, he sat down Saturday with ABC's Andrea Canning, in what the network said was "an exclusive" interview. ABC ran promos for it during last night's Oscars telecast, and planned to air the interview in segments of 'Good Morning America' Monday and Tuesday, with a one-hour special Tuesday night at 10PM ET.

But then he gave another interview, this time to NBC's Jeff Rossen, on Sunday. And in a move that The Hollywood Reporter says resulted in "apoplexy" over at ABC News, the rival network said it will air the interview during early segments of this morning's 'Today' show.
