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 Talks About Getting Roasted (VIDEO)

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?"

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.'"

Bookies Taking Bets on How Charlie Sheen's 'Two and a Half Men' Character Will Be Killed Off

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 26th 2011 6:45AM
'Two and a Half Men' nudeCharlie Sheen's very public meltdown and exit from hit sitcom 'Two and a Half Men,' plus the subsequent fallout, has occupied a lot of TV news column inches and air time this year.

Now the focus has shifted to the upcoming Sheen-less Season 9, and the big questions right now are: Just how will Chuck Lorre get rid of Sheen's character, Charlie Harper?

And, is Ashton Kutcher's character really called Raymond?

Back in June AOL TV reported that Sheen's character would be written out in a very final way, which would prevent the actor from ever returning to the series, and that one scenario under discussion involved the character driving his car off a cliff.

Now, thanks to an Irish bookmaker, fans can -- in countries where it's legal to do so, obviously -- place bets on how Charlie Harper will be killed off. And the current frontrunner, with odds of 11/10, is ... "Drives his car off a cliff."

Former 'Goddess' Bree Olson Thinks Charlie Sheen Is Just a Bored, Funny Guy (VIDEO)

Bree Olson (right) with Charlie Sheen, whom she described as a bored, normal guy on 'Good Morning America'There have been many theories to explain the Charlie Sheen train wreck: most centered on drug use or psychological problems. Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), one of Sheen's former "goddesses," Bree Olson, said he was just a bored guy who liked to tell jokes and say strange things for stress relief.

What about those interviews in which Sheen claimed to be on a drug called Charlie Sheen? "He would still talk the truth of stuff but at the same time he was just cracking so many jokes because he was just bored," said Olson. "People that don't know him, they just don't get it." Or the podcasts, where Sheen seemed even more out of touch with reality? "Maybe that was his way of venting or getting stress out," said Olson. "Stress relief. Because I was with him almost every time of the day and he seemed perfectly kosher and fine to me."

Ashton Kutcher Naked, Jon CryerWell, having a naked Ashton Kutcher is one way to make fans say "Charlie who?"

CBS has launched a very bare ad campaign for 'Two and a Half Men' Season 9, the first season with Ashton Kutcher and without Charlie Sheen.

In the new photo, series stars Angus T. Jones, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer appear to be naked and holding up a sign that reads "All will be revealed ... 09.19.11." Cryer looks a bit jealous.

'Two and a Half Men' returns to CBS, sans Sheen, on Sept. 19 at 9PM. The network released the photo via Twitter.

Rumors are swirling about Sheen's character Charlie Harper getting killed off and Kutcher's character buying the house ... but what that means for Allan and Jake is unclear. Other than that, little is known about Kutcher's character.

Check out the full picture, but not the full monty, below.

'How I Met Your Mother' Creator Craig Thomas Says Season 8 Possibly Show's Last

'HIMYM' castSo, after six seasons we still don't know who is the mother of Ted's kids, but now we do know that all will be revealed before the end of 'How I Met Your Mother' Season 8.

Creator and executive producer Craig Thomas told 'TV Guide' that the upcoming Season 7 will offer answers and even more changes for the 'HIMYM' gang. He also let slip that there will (probably) be only two more seasons left for the comedy.

"All of our contracts are up after [Season] 8," he said, "So we're preparing for that to possibly be the end. As long as we know that a year from now, that's fine. But if we don't, then that's a problem!"

Ashton Kutcher Gets a Start Date for 'Two and a Half Men,' Charlie Sheen in Talks With 'Mad Men' Producers

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 1st 2011 6:00AM
Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. JonesThe new post-Sheen era on 'Two and a Half Men' is due to officially start Aug. 1st when new star Ashton Kutcher and the rest of the cast report to work for the first read-through of Kutcher's debut episode.

The hotly anticipated Season 9 premiere episode is due to air Sept. 19th, and it will allegedly see Charlie Sheen's character, Charlie Harper, killed off (almost certainly in a very nasty, very unambiguously final way).

Meanwhile, according to 'The New York Post,' Sheen may be closing in on a deal for a new cable TV sitcom with Lionsgate, the production company behind 'Mad Men.' The new show would debut in the summer or fall of 2012.

A source told the 'Post' that the new sitcom would most likely be a takeoff on Sheen's real tabloid-crazy life -- with Sheen playing a version of himself, an actor with spectacular personal demons.
