THG Asks!

Welcome to THG's new feature, in which two of our celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!

Today, THG Asks: Will Two and a Half Men succeed with Ashton Kutcher?

YES by Hilton Hater

Two and a Half Men has been the highest rated comedy on TV for years. Therefore, in order for the show to be a success, it simply has to maintain the bulk of that audience.

That's why Ashton Kutcher is an ideal replacement for Charlie Sheen.

Is he particularly exciting? No. Can I name his last critically-acclaimed movie? Gosh, no. (Seriously, try sitting through Valentine's Day or Killers.)

But Kutcher is safe, much like the show itself. This isn't Community, which takes chances and offers up unique, outrageous stunts and storylines.

It's a bland, predictable, cliche-ridden half hour of nonsense.

Ashton's the same. He's got a big smile and many Twitter followers and won't require writers to think for more than three seconds about any line they pen.

Sounds like a boring winner to me.

NO by Free Britney 

#LOSING. My argument could begin and end there. Charlie Sheen may be a certified nut job, but he's right when he says he was Two and a Half Men.

If you think about it, the CBS comedy was a huge hit because it basically allowed the star to play a fictionalized but mostly accurate version of himself.

Charlie's popularity since going off the rails is proof of this. He's got serious issues, but he's a lovable loon, whether his surname is Sheen or Harper.

No offense to Ashton Kutcher, but ... Ashton Kutcher?

In the words of one respected TV critic, "I am far from impressed ... The move comes across as a shameless attempt to tap into a younger generation, one familiar with Kutcher from his days on Fox and MTV. I don’t think it will work.”

THG Asks you ... will Ashton and 2 1/2 Men thrive? Who won this argument?

I think Ashton is a breath of fresh air. He will likely inject some freshness to a show that was in my opinion getting a little tired. The Charlie character would have soon got so embarrassing anyway as he looks so old and tired now. Imagine him hitting on those young females. Urrgh! It'll be a different show with Ashton, but I think it's going to be good.

Depending on the storyline and how they bring Ashton on board, my guess is that it will continue successfully. I love the idea that he is Charlie's long lost son who is is a tutor who's students all get A's even though he is dumb as a doorknob, not unlike his younger cousin, Jake. Of course Ashton will get all the girls.

Haven't liked Charlie since his first immature drunken rage, but Ashton is too different from Charlie for this to work well.

I hate the things Charlie has done... But personally I think it's going to go down hill with out him... I'm not saying that the other actors/actresses aren't talented, I'm just saying Charlie was a big part in it... He even has that drunken look to him, Ashton just looks like the same age as Jake... Stupid Ashton!!!!!!
lol!
