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.

This piece of crap needs to be in jail for about 5 years! Sick of hearing about him and his demented family. Nobody else that pulled all of his crap and stunts would get the chances the idiot has received and he talented! The people the employed this guy need to WAKE up and FIRE HIS ASS. Maybe then he will get the message. NOT!!

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. According to TV by the numbers web site.

CBS should hire all the women the fired or wanted to let go this past summer.

Paget Brewster, AJ Cook, Melina Kanakaredes to name a few!

For 2 million an episode the guy can dictate his own terms. We all hate his behavior yet somewhere deep inside of us we all wished we could be him for a day. Edan Aharony

The producers should put the character "CHARLIE HARPER" in REHAB and shoot around him with guests who have had outrageous contact with the "CHARACTER" fill in.

Then when the IDIOT returns to set? He doesn't have to continue playing the SMARMY, HOOKER CALLING, BOOZING character...they can find more than enough laughs with the CHARACTER having to adjust to life without all the immoral B.S.

I don't understand why all of the sudden people are surprised of his behaviour. Do they not watch the show?? Charlie Sheen is a drug and alcohol addict who loves porn stars. It's not a character he plays, it's really him. Don't hate him for it.
His show is one that has made me laugh out loud more times than any other show on tv. YOU GO CHARLIE SHEEN!!!

I like Allen better. He is the glue that holds the whole show together.

I have always enjoyed Two and a Half Men. I'm sorry Charlie cannot get his act together and somehow it is not fair for the cast and crew. I do watch the reruns but hope he finishes the rest of the season. I also like Mike & Molly and Rules of Engagement.

I gotta say, that Charlie as his problems, but he's not the only one, **** everybody dose. Why hold one in fault & not everybody? Far as buying females, hell that's been going on since the begining of time, the only difference is, that one is married & the other isn't. U tell me, if the wife wants money & the husband says no, what happens then? The husband don't get any"RIGHT"? The same thing with any other female,wife or not. Gotta pay 4 what u want.
