'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.

Are you able to read? Comprehend? There were several articles about Charlie trying to get taping resumed and he even offered to pay part of their salaries for any missed episodes. You need to get more than one brain cell firing at the same time.

OK, let's simmer down a little bit, TMZ. It was actually his comments on the "Alex Jones" show which proved to be the catalyst for the shutdown. Let not be overstating your significance in the world, mm-kay?

Guess Lorre can dish it out but cant take it!!! Charlie's right. He wasnt missing production, wasnt missing shows. And all his crazy antics kept people watching the show.

Have you even seen the little insulting placards that Lorre writes at the end of every episode? I guess he feels he's the only one who can talk crap. Lorre put all those people out of work and just made himself look like an ass...

They're ready for it as evidenced by the choice of words. A common legal phrase: "we must look to the totality of the cir***stances."

I am so sick of these egotistical "super stars" who have no thought for those who gave him his stardom -- the costars, writers, directors, producers, etc. His antics have caused a lot of stress and financial hardship on those people who make him look good. There are a hundred "bad boy" actors who could take his place in a second. Dane Cook would be perfect!
