CBS Moves to Fill the Charlie Sheen Gap

2/1/2011 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "Two and a Half Men" hiatus caused by Charlie Sheen is working out for some people -- because CBS just ordered more episodes of two OTHER shows to make up for it.

Charlie Sheen CBS Contract

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS has placed an order for two additional episodes of "Mike and Molly" and "Rules of Engagement" to make up for lack of new "Men" shows caused by Charlie's rehab.

Charlie's partying: Good for business ... just not his.

I never liked the show anyways. I do feel bad for the other actors and crew of the show though.

Since Mr. Sheen makes so much damn money, it should be HIM that compensates everyone in his crew for Two and a Half Men while he "rehabs".
What an ass to put people out financially like that.

If Charlie is rehabbing at home why can't he make to the set for filming of that crummy show? At lease if he was spending some time filming that is less time he can spend on rehabbing/partying with porn stars.

CBS should just cancel Two & A Half Men. That is one of the most over-rated hyped up shows ever. Charlie just needs to OD dead already.

Everyone has their day and Charlie Sheen wore out his welcome with viewers a few years ago.

Actors DESERVING this opportunity will run with it. Welcome Aboard!

I just wanted him to go to rehap and come back to Two and a half men. I'm always looking forward to the new episode. I am still watching his old show. I love it, I love it, I love it...please don't take him away from the show. I love them all. :(

Both those shows are so much better. I was a huge 2.5 men fan but it's pretty much jumped the shark. Same old lame jokes, getting way old.

IMHO at this point, having worked at studios/networks . CBS may be ready to cancel the show, IF Charlie does not come out of his sorrowful problems. Would not be the first time a network has cancelled a top rated show due to these kind of problems. but, JMHO

I stopped watching Two and Half Men midway through the second season. It just stopped being funny; the humor is cheap. Dear CBS, more Big Bang Theory please.

When you can afford any damned thing you ever want it skews your perception of what you want considerably. Sometimes money is not your friend. I hope Charlie gets his act together before he ends up dead from his out of control habits. It would be a shame for everyone who loves him and those who love to watch him to lose him so early. Come on Charlie...wise up. There are so many good things you could be doing. Stop being so selfish. You'll be surprised at how good it feels to think about someone besides yourself.

As far as Mike and Molly and Rules of Engagement go....Good for them! Mike and Molly is cute and somewhat entertaining. The husband (I'm sorry I dont know his name) on rules of engagement is hilarious and his wife is toooo cute. They are great. David Spade is suffieciently obnoxious as required by his character...he annoys me...lol

"Mike & Molly" has done for heavy people what "Amos & Andy" did for African Americans...set them back 100 years. It is the single most insulting piece of crap I've ever seen.

If those 2 leads were black and the lame-ass jokes directed at blacks the way they are directed at the heavyset, the show would've been drummed off TV after the second episode.

I'm not heavy and yet I feel insulted by the show, so I can only imagine how badly overweight/obese folks must feel after watching it.
