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.

these are different times we live in, But I say he can party if he wants to responsibly. I don't find people drunk funny anymore.

But I wish him well if he is getting sober, I've tried over and over and its a rough road ahead.

Esp for someone wealthy enough to afford to party. I'm not but you can always find ways....

Why not order up new episodes of TWO AND A HALF MEN without Charlie. He could go to rehab in the show!

Way to sum it up Caligirl! He is such an arrogant & pompous DB who has never given one rat's a** about other people - it is always about him! I too feel sorry for the people that work on the show. Maybe all those guilds should band together and get a "rehab pay" clause in their contracts to cover the "little" people when the "stars" crash and burn...especially since that seems to be the norm these days.

People do all kinds of stupid things for which they may regret, no matter how discreet you try, chances are your nocternal activities would be exposed. Charlie Sheen is the best in commedy, just like Lucy (Lucille Ball) cannot be replaced from the Lucy Show, Charlie has become the part and parcel of the 2.5 "Men"....MMMMMMennnnnn show. You can certainly try to replace Charlie with some of the finest comedians, like from SNL, but I doubt it will work out.

The ratings are better than ever 11.41 3.0 18 to 49, and these are reruns sorry to burst your bubble. New episodes are about 14 million. And this Monday night won the night. According to TV by the numbers web site. And Inside Edition.

He lost his $2 million dollars a week job over cocaine and hookers, and caused 300 other people to lose their jobs too.

I bet he doesn't even care.

Too much of anything can destroy. The lifestyle he chose has been a part of him for over two decades and will most likely kill him. Under the cir***stances I don't think he can change, it's so much a part of who he is, that he can't and won't give it up. And the fact that he is wealthy and has huge celebrity status, just makes it harder to change. The sad part is, he isn't just destroying his life, but his family, friends and coworkers lives as well. How sad for his children, and his parents. How sad for the cast and crew of his show. They're paid by the episode, so when Charlie's absence causes a reduction in shows, that means the script gal and the camera guy and the lighting guy and the wardrobe assistant doesn't get paid. The spoils of the rich are poison......live and learn.
