“Two and a Half Men” Axed For Rest Of Season
Ok... who had February 24th in the office pool? Charlie Sheen finally went off the deep end! Thursday night, Sheen called into the radio show "The Alex Jones Show" and made such disparaging remarks about series creator Chuck Lorre that CBS and Warner Brothers mutually decided to end production of the hit series with only four episodes left. (There was to be eight more, but the season was shortened to allow Sheen time for treatment.) CBS and Warner Brothers released the statement,
"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season.”
Wondering what Sheen could have said to get this kind of reaction? During the interview, Sheen referred to Lorre as a "clown" and a "stupid, stupid little man" whom Sheen "violently hates." When asked about his sobriety, Sheen remarked,
“I have a disease? Bulls**t. I cured it… with my mind… it’s all good guys. Quit panicking. No panic, no judgment… You can kill me but you do not have the right to judge me… I can’t use the word sober because that’s a term from those people, and I have cleansed myself. I have closed my eyes and in a nanosecond I cured myself from this ridiculous… It’s just the work of sissies. The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning. You know? This bootleg cult arrogantly referred to as AA now supports a 5 percent success rate. My success rate is 100 percent. Do the math! One of their stupid mottos is ‘Don’t be special, be one of us.’ News flash: I am special and I will never be one of you. ‘Oh, we have to all sit in here and touch ourselves and frown.’ Well, you don’t look like you’re having a lot of fun. I’m going to hang out with these two smokin’ hotties and fly privately around the world. It might be lonely up here but I sure like the view.”
Comments like that and his referring to the interviewer and himself as "Vatican assassin warlocks" have left many to wonder about Sheen's sobriety "success rate". Production was set to resume on Monday before the decision was made to cancel the rest of the season. CBS, Warner Brothers and Charlie Sheen's reps have yet to issue any more comments. No word yet as to what will take the vacant time slot.
