Charlie Sheen gets fired. Will 'Two and a Half Men' become 'One and a Half Men'?
After weeks of public battles between Charlie Sheen and the forces behind the hit series "Two and a Half Men" -- CBS, Warner Bros. and series co-creator Chuck Lorre -- the actor has been fired. Is anyone surprised?
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on 'Two and a Half Men' effective immediately,” a statement from the studio announced.
Neither the studio nor CBS have commented yet on whether there's a chance of the show carrying on without Sheen. (Our readers offered some thoughts on how "Two and a Half Men" might continue without him here.) The network's deal had the series running through next season at a cost of about $4 million per episode. For more on Sheen's termination, read reports at Company Town here and here.
