5 Greatest Moments In The History Of ‘Two And A Half Men’

Friday, February 25 by

As you probably know, “Two and a Half Men” has been canceled for the remainder of the season. Producers decided to pull the plug after Charlie Sheen’s latest radio rant, in which he called the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, a turd, and went on to call President Thomas Jefferson a pussy. Granted, Jefferson was a bit of a douche bag about the whole Federalism thing. But even so, bad form, Charles.

Since it looks like we won’t be seeing new episodes of “Two and a Half Men” any time soon, if ever (fingers crossed), we decided that now would be a great time to take a look back fondly at the five greatest “Two and a Half Men” moments. Yes, it was difficult, but we actually found five.

5. No Studio Audience

In January, 2010, production of the show was forced to move ahead without a studio audience. The decision was made out of concern for the safety of actor Jon Cryer who feared his ex-wife, Sarah Trigger, was trying to have him killed. While viewers at home were eventually subjected to the horror, the would-be studio audience members were spared from sitting through the grueling ordeal.

4. Production Halted

In February of 2010, a few months after Sheen was arrested for fighting with his wife, the actor voluntarily entered rehab, causing production of the show to temporarily shut down. For a while, at least, television seemed a little less shitty.

3. Sheen Threatens to Walk Away

In April of 2010, Sheen threatened to walk away from the show after seven seasons. As it turned out, Sheen was simply holding out for more money from the network. But for a brief moment in time, it seemed possible that the show might be going off the air.

2. Production of “Two and a Half Men” Goes On Hiatus

After Charlie Sheen took part in yet another coke/porn star bender, he was rushed to the hospital with stomach pains. As a result, Sheen made arrangements to go into rehab, and production of the show was once again put on a temporary hiatus. Aside form the cast and crew who would not be paid for the time off, there was much rejoicing.

1. The Remainder of “Two and a Half Men” Season 8 is Canceled

On February 24th, 2011, CBS pulled the plug on the remainder of “Two and a Half Men” season 8, and comedy fans around the world cheered in unison. Of course, this does not take the lingering threat of season 9 off the table. But at the rate Charlie is going, chances are the show will have to be renamed “One and a Half Men and the Bloated Corpse of a Drug-Addled Deviant.”

Do you like this story?

    It’s not just the porn star that was screwed it was everybody.

    I don’t watch the show anymore I’m full of it.

    Feels like this is the bizarro world view of Sheen and the Show.

    Or that the writer is lickin someone’s (that isn’t a certain coke + porn star riddled) uh ..posterior.

    Lookin for a job maybe? Afraid to upset TPTB?

    Seriously, I don’t know anyone that thinks the show (or Charlie) is as bad as this article makes it seem. It’s not art, but as TV sitcoms go, of which ALL are universally bad for you, because they take that area of your brain, that is known in scientific circles as “the brain” and they smash it against something really really hard.

    In short, I thought this one was just like all other sitcoms in that time-and-brain-wasting-regard, except it had the guy that looks like Tom Cruise’s cousin, and the guy that played Duckie in it.

    So still brain-melting crap but brain-melting crap with a bank account to hire some cool.

    Why you hating on Charlie and the Show so much?

    It’s worth mentioning that there is another side to this story: That is, Chuck Lorre (stage name btw) who is the producer of 2 1/2 Men. He has been needling Charlie Sheen pretty much continously in what are called “Vanity Cards” that air in the last two seconds of each broadcast. Below, from a website that Lorre set up to archive his rantings, is one of the tamer examples, I understand:

    http://www.chucklorre.com/index.php?p=329

    “CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #329

    I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make
    sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist
    twice a year. I floss every night. I’ve had chest x–rays, cardio
    stress tests, EKG’s and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a
    variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I
    don’t do drugs. I don’t have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.

    If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.”

    He goes on in other broadcasts to call him empty & soulless; Not really morale boosting material one would expect from their employer.

    Imo, Lorre needs to be tossed out with the trash so that Charlie can get back into a positive and productive environment.

    Sure, they are gonna get rid of the guy who has made them millions and millions in shows as opposed to the crackhead coke addict who is ruining their reputation

    why does this show have to get canceled when there are shows like the office, outsourced, and parks and rec on the air?

    Also, Charlie Sheen can’t play his character better, because he OWNS that role just like Billy Bob Thornton and his Bad Santa role. Some roles just fall into your lap because that’s who you are!

    Agreed! Charlie Sheen isn’t acting, he’s just playing himself. Kinda Like that “Best Supporting Actress” Academy Award winner Mellisa (something) who dropped the “F” bomb at the Awards ceremony for the first time in its history. They should take that award away from her for playing herself. lol

    This author obviously dislikes the sitcom. His point of view, but not the majorities. Would you prefer the boring NBC manufactured shows like “The Office?” 2 1/2 is funny and real. Charlie is the best of the best.

    Unfathomable how that show was on the air so long. It stunk. Laugh track for the uneducated.

    You didn’t forget to mention that the article sucked! It was the first thing you brought up! You’re also wrong about Two and a Half Men “rocking.” It’s a truly horrible show that is perpetrated on us by the bowling-shirt industry.
