'Two and a Half Men'

Shut Down After TMZ Story

2/25/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned "Two and a Half Men" will immediately stop production for the rest of the season ... because of Charlie's escapades in the last few days ... most recently what he said to TMZ.

Two and a Half Men Shutdown
CBS and Warner Bros. say, "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."

The decision comes several hours after TMZ posted a story in which Charlie Sheen challenged creator Chuck Lorre to a fight, calling him "a stupid, stupid little man and a pu**y punk that I never want to be like."

Sources connected with the production tell us ... Charlie's comments to TMZ were the final straw.

No word on whether production will resume next season.

I worked in sitcom production for ten years and my heart goes out to the show's production staff and crew who have really been the ones to pay in this whole mess. Work isn't easy to find right now and it's rare to land on a successful show that lasts for years. There is no such thing as job security in Hollywood and the big shots on both sides of this are playing with the livlihoods of the production staff.

When you choose to cancel shows for what an actor does in his personal life and not his acting ability the world becomes a dangerous place.

about time. the show is past it's prime. charlie has pretty much screwed up his career. maybe he will find work only in some heavy metal video as a drunk or druggie. doubt he will find work anywhere else.

Good luck landing another role, Charlie! You are unemployable. Pathetic.

He's still making money off the syndication of that show. Now he's getting paid to sit on his butt.

First he ****s hookers, now he's ****ing the cast and crew of his show who don't make nearly as much as this useless piece of ****. He doesn't give a **** how some of them are going to pay the rent next month. No bigger douchebag has ever existed in Hollywood.

Tis better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

H-A-L-L-E-L-U-J-A-H !!!!! Hallelujah... hallelujah....

So... there is justice in Charlie's life!!! Dude, have no delusions of friendships with any of your co-stars and associates or any future career for that matter. You're self-centered and out of control actions just cost many, many people their livelyhoods and you your career. EVERYONE will soon distance themselves from you!!! The party's no good when it hurts others dimwitt. Guess what's next bro.... " Uh, sorry Charlie... but about that Major League thingee ". You brought this all on yourself with your arrogant, self-centered, abuse of others and life in general. Now... go hire yourself a bunch of attorneys to go after CBS and blow a bunch more of your ever-dwindling cash, cause dude you ain't gonna win, cause you ain't no winna baaabee!!! Bring it!!! And you owned who??? Dude, you REALLY shot your w a d this time. Sauget is soooooo much more your speed....

I have NO respect left for Charlie Sheen. I feel sorry for the cast of Two and a Half Men ... they don't deserve to be part of Charlie's chaotic drama ... it's ALL about Charlie!!

I really love the home schooled treatment he has had for his addictions ... staying sober comes first ... not jetting to the Bahamas with sluts, not moving your ex down the street, not running your mouth all over the place, not hanging out with baseball players.

Do us a favor, Charlie ... shut up and grow up ... you are a disgrace!! Buy yourself a suitcase full of cocaine and end it all ... we don't give a ****!!

Good for CBS! Charlie thought he could do and say anything he wanted to without consequence. WRONG! Someone finally put and end to his pushing the limit and I think it's hilarious that someone put this ego freak in his place.

I do feel sorry for the rest of the cast and crew who are without a job now because of Charlie's behavior. I wonder if Charlie will still offer to pay them 1/3 of their salaries? Doubt it!
