Charlie Sheen: Out of the Hospital, Planning to Work

by at . Comments

What, did you expect Charlie Sheen to check into rehab? Clearly, you don't know this man very well (be grateful).

Multiple sources confirm that the actor has left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following his latest bender, is resting at home and will be on the set of Two and a Half Men Tuesday.

All in all, just your basic midweek gathering for the star.

Why won't Sheen consider rehab? Simple, a friend tells People:

"In his eyes, he thinks, 'I'm having fun, so what? I'm making $2 million a week, the show has the best ratings, I show up for up work. What's the problem?' He loves the attention, he loves to shock people, he loves that he gets away with all of this."

There is no morality clause in Sheen's CBS contract, so there's little the network can do when incidents such as this occur.

Moreover, what would be its incentive behind taking action? Two and a Half Men remains the highest-rated comedy on television, raking in over $200,000 per 30-second commercial. That money is fueled by Sheen, who is beloved and punctual on set, and helps support a crew of over 300 people.

The aforementioned magazine insider refers to Charlie's "ongoing problem" and says "people are rallying around him to intervene," but they'd have to be higher than Sheen to think it would do any good.
