'Two and a Half Men' renewed for 10th season on CBS
Like it or not, Charlie Sheen, "Two and a Half Men" is coming back.
CBS announced Saturday that it had made deals with Warner Bros. Television and the principal cast members -- Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones -- and would renew the sitcom for its 10th season. The series is TV's no. 2 sitcom, behind ABC's "Modern Family," and just passed its landmark 200th episode.
The deal was not surprising, given the importance of "Men" to the CBS schedule and comments from Kutcher and executive producer Chuck Lorre suggesting they were open to making more episodes.
Sheen, the onetime star of the show, was booted last season after months of highly publicized personal problems and verbal attacks on Lorre. After Kutcher replaced him last fall, Sheen criticized the show as "completely adrift" and full of "bad writing." Sheen will star this summer in the cable sitcom "Anger Management."
What do you think of the renewal? Who's better on "Men," Sheen or Kutcher?
