CBS Responds to Charlie Sheen, Suspends Shooting on Two and a Half Men

by at . Comments

Two and a Half Men was scheduled to resume shooting on Monday. Then, Charlie Sheen opened his ridiculous mouth.

First, he went on a radio show and said all THIS. Then, he spoke to TMZ and challenged sitcom creator Chuck Lorre to a fight, saying:

"I violently hate Chaim Levine [Chuck Lorre].  He's a stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I'd never want to be like."

Such a Winner

Sheen continued: "That piece of s**t [Lorre] took money out of my pocket, my family's pocket, and, most importantly, my second family - my crew's pocket... you can tell him [Lorre] one thing. I own him."

In response, CBS and Warner Bros. have issued the following statement:

"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."

UPDATE: Naturally, Sheen has now fired back at Lorre. He's released this letter to TMZ:

What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows ... I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words -- imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.

Remember these are my people ... not yours...we will continue on together.

The question must be asked, however: does Sheen have any fans remaining? You tell us!


Oh my God! I take it back--You have 6 kids!!


Grow up already Charlie. You have 4 kids, it's time to start acting like a MAN. How are you going to feel 15 yrs from now, when your grown daughters are going to start hooking up with guys just like you, because it feels like "home"?


Now, i guess it's Charlie who has taken money from his coworkers..being able to earn theirs. Sounds like nobody wins in this situation!


Charlie chose to have "gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows", the folly being attempts at being judged and degraded.
He could have chosen the high road and confront Chuck Lorre and resolve his differences with him in private.
Now the entire crew, staff, and fans are left hanging...


For all the people who have jumped on Charlie's bandwagon, I wonder if you would feel the same if he was a member of your family, or one of the people who he has put out of work. This is total drug behavior that says FU to anyone who gets in his way. Guess the "in home" rehab didn't take too good!!!


I feel really bad for Charlie he could have been one of the best actors out there and still could be if he could keep his personal issues out of the spotlite he can surely make his own choices in life but needs to keep it out of the lime light and off the set maybee a little growing up to do. Hopefully he has enough people to stick by him through this until he wakes up! If not I'm afraid he will become another star tragety we read about. Get it together Charlie and your fans will stick with you!!!


Truth be told, the man is an amazing actor. Charlie Sheen, that is. He could hole up in a reality house with Lindsey and film it for tv with all these television doctors that Oprah created.
Let's put some of those doctors to good use. (Remember the man who played a doctor on As the World Turns, I'm not a doctor but I play one on TV.) And, in truth, we do watch Two and a Half Men at our home. It's good television. And I can see why Mr. Sheen would be mad at a co-worker's comments. Personally, I believe this is just an attempt to stop a good show. Vendettas aside, it is almost re-run time anyway, so why complain about it? Their money surely isn't making its way into MY bank account any time soon.


Awww, Friend, you are so cute to me. While I appreciate your commitment to Jesus and sharing your knowledge about God and Bible-related matters with the rest of the class, well, just so you know, I'm pretty sure that when you were taught in Sunday School to share the word, they did not mean to go ahead and share it on a message board about Charlie Sheen. Doing so sort of compromises the message, no? Rock on and God bless.


I love Charlie. His crazy drunk ass! Im really disappointed they cancelled the show.


With all due respect to those you who like Two & Half Men and/or Charlie....I think it is enabling behavior when the show supports his habit and his fans won't hold him accountable. If you really love him, help him get a handle on himself by not supportin this distructive behavior. Glad to know the show is cancelled...viewers deserve better.
