CBS Shuts Down Two And A Half Men
Charlie Sheen has really done it this time. Thanks to some crazy rants earlier today that slammed “Men” creator Chuck Lorre, CBS has decided to pull the plug on this season of the hit show.
I reported earlier that Charlie Sheen was on his way to a tropical getaway with his ex-wife, porn star girl friend and “nanny”. Before he hopped on a plane to paradise he decided to do a couple interviews. Big mistake. Sheen has flown off the deep end for sure. He called Alcoholics Anonymous a joke and went off on Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre 2 different times. I thought Charlie was reverting back to his old ways but this is a bit on the crazy side.
Since Sheen ran into trouble earlier this month his show was on hiatus while he went to rehab, which he proceeded to drop out of. He said a week or so ago that he was ready to return to work, but he was clearly not. Now after his tirade, CBS has suspended production of the show for the rest of this season. In an interview on the Alex Jones Show he was asked about Lorre’s comments about how “if Charlie Sheen outlives me I’ll be pissed”. This triggered the first attack on Lorre:
I didn’t care about that vanity card, I went straight home and dispelled that, that was actually one of the few compliments that clown has paid me in frickin’ almost a decade.
Maybe that would of been enough but it just opened up a whole can of worms. Charlie would go on to say that he is the reason that the show is what it is and that he was ready to go back to work but Lorre was to lazy to write. After that interview he proceeded out on his little trip where was caught up with fo another interview and he continued to slam the writer:
He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a p– punk that I’d never want to be like. That’s me being polite. That piece of s- took money out of my pocket, my family’s pocket, and, most importantly, my second family – my crew’s pocket. You can tell him one thing: I own him
This was the one that sent CBS and Warner Bros. into a frenzy. It wasn’t long after they heard these comments that the decided to suspend the series. I hope Charlie enjoys his little vacation because he needs a serious reality check when he gets back. I feel bad for the rest of the cast who is now left doing nothing all because this dude can’t take control of his way out of control life.
Sheen responded with an open letter about the cancelation and slammed the show’s creator in a fashion reminiscent of Mel Gibson. TMZ has the complete letter if you’d like to read his crazy ramblings.
