Charlie Sheen Rants & CBS Shuts Down Two and a Half Men

Good Lord. Doesn’t Charlie Sheen have a publicist? Isn’t there anyone who can get this guy to stop? Recently, Sheen took to the Alex Jones’ radio program (The Alex Jones Show) to basically rant against Two and Half Men showrunner Chuck Lorre, among other things (including Alcoholics Anonymous).

Despite the fact that Sheen is one of the highest paid TV actors, and the fact that Two and a Half Men is obviously a large money-maker for the network, CBS made the announcement today that it was shutting down production on the show for the rest of this season. Their statement read: “Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season.”

It’s clear that Sheen needs a great deal of help. During the interview he claimed that he had cured himself with his own mind, while calling A.A. “a cult”. This, I suppose, is what happens when you have an actor (or any person) who continues to be gainfully employed and wealthy while going on a downward spiral that has obviously lasted for a very long time. There’s clearly a lot of factors that have driven Sheen to this point – chief among them his own terrible decisions. What is unfortunate is that a lot of people are now forced out of a job for the remainder of the season because he refuses to address his problems. But CBS made the right choice in this case. Allowing Sheen to continue work would have been nothing but an enabling tactic and would have been the wrong choice.

The next question is whether CBS will allow Sheen to return to work for next season, whether they’ll cancel the show entirely or whether they’ll replace him with another actor.
