'Two and a Half Men' -- The Show Will Go On!

2/1/2011 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen will return to "Two and a Half Men" in 3-4 weeks -- at least that's now the plan -- and producers will make up the episodes so no one from the cast or crew will be out any money ... TMZ has learned.

Two and a Half Man Update
Sources connected with the show tell us ... although nothing is in stone ... they're told by the addiction specialist that Charlie could be back to work next month. If that happens, producers would most likely make up the two missed shows at the end of the production season.

Bottom line -- no one will lose money and the show could be back on track.

why not let his assistant fill in for him on the show seems like the character is perfect for the role of cokehead loser/though somehow filthy rich Ca. socialite.If you look back at the vids TMZ got talking to Rick Calmeltoe he is carrying a bag that looks just like the one that the coke dealer delivered the rock cocaine to the porn house in.

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 trash.

I find 2 1/2 Men impossible to watch for any length of time. Its hackneyed one-liners and the same facial expressions in the episodes make me change the channel every time I happen across that show.
I suppose some find this idiocy entertaining.

GOOD LORD I don't see what people see in that stupid f@#*ng show!!! AND add the offensive sexual innuendo from a child!!! sickening. He has real talent... just not using it.
3-4 weeks rehab at home? REALLY? Charlie stole his father's credit card to get a whore and lose his virginity at 15. He has NEVER been normal. Look at his history of drugs/violence/abuse and now his obsession with porn stars (lol unlike your average tmz reader's obsession--Charlie prefers them to his model wives and his children as well).
He is damaged at his deepest core, and, JEEZ... I wish him well, but he's got to want it-- health, and healthy relationships (with people who love him, not just his money).
Meanwhile, I find these stories about his sick choices tragic and boring at the same time.

Oh my god you guys are so pathetic! Living your boring-ass grey colored lives...I love how people know Charlie does everything he wants, screws pornstars and get more money per episode than most of you will ever see in your life - and you still call him a LOSER? First off the show is incredibly funny, it got me through a very rough patch of my life, that's how you know it brings positive feelings. Second, Charlie is a great actor and plays his role how he is supposed to. You empty headed fools saying "fire him" obviously have never worked in media or have no perspective of business whatsoever. Ratings for the last episodes were INSANELY high, so unless CBS bought 15 million TVs and homes, saying "nobody watches the show" is absurd. I really hope Charlie gets better and the show will go on.

who dat    

The truth is: CBS nor any of the network execs couldn't care less about Sheen. They only care about keeping him alive long enough to fill the episodes required to syndicate the show. After that Sheen is a corpse.

An addict is not going to get better unless he/she hits a really hard bottom and a conservative ship and in-home rehab is not a bottom.

You want to bet no one will lose money. Charlie is only taking a rest from his use; he is saturated so that will hold him for a week or so and, maybe he got a little scare.

He is not serious about this or he would have gone anywhere; done anything to get sober. This is just the rollercoaster of adiction.

He has not committed and will cost you money so don't spend it before it's in your hand.

This is great news! Maybe they will be able to write his inevitable OD into the script... What a great season-ender! Not a fan of the show, but, I would watch that....

Where's KOOKY?    

Wow -- seriously, this is the first picture I've ever seen of Charlie Sheen where he wasn't scowling! Even when he smiles, he's got his eyebrows all knotted up. He's really weird. Just glad he's finally in rehab but wondering how long it'll last. That guy just doesn't strike me as someone who can be helped long-term. Wishing him the best for his kids' sake, but he truly needs to do a total 180 with his f'ed up sorry excuse for a life.
