    I've got a feeling some people would not be too terribly upset if that happened.

    Whatta guy!

    I've always thought he's sorta charming (well, a tad better than Mel Gibson). But I think I've had enough. At this point, I can "just say no" to watching his show.

    PS This is another one of Chuck Lorre's relevant "Vanity Cards"

    >>CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #324

    WARNING!

    Do not attempt to replicate what you saw in tonight's episode of Two and a Half Men. Despite the seeming lack of serious consequences and regardless of the hilarity that ensued, this is extremely dangerous behavior and could result in injury or death. Please keep in mind that we employ a highly-paid Hollywood professional who has years of experience with putting his life at risk. And sadly no, I'm not talking about our stunt man.

    That had nothing to do with Charlie.
    That was about Jake and his friend doing stupid stunts to try and get a viral video hit. ( e.g. riding a shopping cart off the roof)

    The first part of it didn't, but the
    "please keep in mind that we employ a highly-paid Hollywood professional who has years of experience with putting his life at risk. And sadly no, I'm not talking about our stunt man"​
    part probably did.

    No, I think he meant it all about the kids. He's not subtle. What you think he means is generally what he means.

    I'm not sure how you can read that as anything but a jab at Charlie Sheen. :confused:

    It seems like almost every vanity card I've read this year (including some of the BBT ones) were subtle and not-so-subtle jabs at Sheen.

    The cards are episode specific. That episode had very little of charlie compared to some others. It had a huge section about the boys and their stupid stunts.

    That's how I can see it that way! Also, the part about stunts in the card might be a hint.

    So Angus T. Jones (Jake) has had years of experience putting his life at risk? How's that, exactly?

    Potato and pen.
    The future of the show will be about Jake and his friend...and Alan.

    THEY will be the two...and a half...men.

    Maybe the two men have been Charlie and Jake all along?

    But Jake's friend is a boring idiot and not worthy of ANY air time IMO.

    Reminds me of the discussion between Berta and Jake.

    Jake: My little sister doesn't really look like anybody except my dad. She's sort of a female version of my dad.

    Berta: I thought your dad was a female version of your dad.

    I join the growing chorus thinking it's about time Charlie Sheen be taken off the air.

    I suspect he is a growing concern over the finaces of any project he may be up for; certainly Two and a Half Men is feeling finacially shakier than ever before.

    Sheen's oblivious self-indulgent behavior puts everyone's paycheck at risk. He may be financially secure enough not to worry when his show has to halt production because he is "rehabbing" (which is Hollywood-speak for sobering up enough to stand and say lines.) Not everyone involved with the show shares that security.

    The go-fers. the grips, the supporting actors, and vendors and suppliers for the show. They're all off work now too, thanks to Charlie.

    God that man is a douc***bag.

    MikeCC, how does that help all those people?

    Without him, there really is NO show. He knows it, they know it. That's why he gets paid an obscene amt of money. 1.8 Million per show or about $40 mill per annum making him one of the highest paid actors in history and certainly near the highest ever on TV.

    Mostly, he needs a lot of help to figure out that happiness won't be found at the bottom of a bottle or in bed with hookers. I feel sorry for the guy. He has all the money in the world and he couldn't be lonelier or more unhappy.

    Johnny Carson was right, money can't buy happiness. You can be rich and miserable.

    Surely you must be kidding. That show rakes in more money than any other 30 minute sitcom on teevee right now. Sheen has survived several other stints of "rehab" and he'll survive this one, too...as will his co-stars. And I'm sure they'd be all set for life if the show shut down right now...given the insane amount of reruns in syndication now and in the future...
