'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'm astonished to see people siding with Charlie Sheen on this. I feel sorry for him and his state of mental health, and I don't particularly like the show anyway since it is a bunch of bathroom and sex one-liner jokes. But his public abuse of Chuck Lorre was absurd and uncalled for. He has even said that he knew the show would be cancelled if he acted out, so he did.

No matter what his problem was with Chuck Lorre, and I doubt that it was 'real' anyway, attacking him publicly and making anti-semetic remarks was totally inappropriate. That's childish behavior. And he cost many other people their livelihood. Not only the other actors as some have mentioned, but all that work for the show from the writers down to the people who take care of costumes, cleaning the set and production areas, and caterers. I saw an article where he has called his fans to band together against Chuck Lorre -- does he realize that to do so is to condone his actions which have cost so many behind the scenes people their paycheck?

Hope the other actors find work right away. It's ashame when a show depends on one (ass) actor. Jon Cryer was more of an actor than Charlie would ever think of being. All of Charlie's lines were one-liners. Jon Cryer carried the scenes. We'll see a "reality" show of Charlies life. Although it will have to be aired on Cinamax. Good luck to the other actors.

@361 -- Your prejudice shows your lack of education, intellience, and compassion.

Everyone is accusing Chuck Lorre of canceling the show, but clearly from the articles it was a decision made by a group of quite a few executives. It is very unlikely that Chuck Lorre would have the authority to do that on his own, or that any producer at a major network does.

With the recent reports of Charlie Sheen's drug use - why hasn't he been arrested? Also, I thought that the men who used the services of prostitutes were breaking the law. It appears that Charlie Sheen has gotten a pass on following the laws unlike the common citizen who would be in prison for doing what he has done.

Also, he acts as if he was the only reason for the success of Two and a Half Men which is shameful in regards to how the contributions from the talented and respectable cast members and producers of the show held it together.

"Of course Lorre would whine like a little bitch and have it shut down for the season, he has Mike and Molly to fall back on. Just great CBS next why don't you ****tards then shut down The Mentalist, all the C.S.I.'s, and The Big Bang Theory."

Because the stars of those shows aren't a bunch of drug and alcohol addicts who are impossible to work with. Why the hell are you defending Charlie Sheen? His behavior is deplorable, and he's an embarrassment to his entire family. Personally, he should be taken out in the woods and done away, if for no other reason than to rid us of his idiocy.

Charlie Sheen is the only one to blame. Besides, he was was stealing money on that show. He didn't have to deliver at all, because that role was easy. Any no name actor could pull of that role with no problem. It's one of the cushiest roles ever.

IF THE DUDE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HIS ONGOING CAREER OR HIS FUTURE MONEY AT THAT I'M ASKING WHY THE HELL SHOULD WE?. FOR GOD SAKES HE'S A GROWN ASS OLD MAN AND I'M ONLY 17 AND NO RIGHT FROM WRONG.

I have never watch the show and I am glad I did not . How could anybody siding with Sheen!!!!! I am sorry he has an illness. He is dillusional, people lost their jobs because of his addiction, behaviour. Do you think because you dont like Jews, you have lost your mind, cant think properly,or you are just like Sheen but without the money.

I actually love this show. It's unique, funny and entertains millions of male and female viewers. I'm actually surprised that the show has lasted this long. It's certainly on the edge.

It's a bummer that Charlie Sheen hasn't been able to get a grip on his life. He is constantly sabotaging himself. The show was perfect for him and He carried it well, at least until now. I feel bad for the other cast members. I will miss this show.

How many other networks are champing at the bit to sign Charlie up for a new tv show? Two and a Half Men made CBS a ton of money, no doubt some other network will scoop Charlie up and all the ad revenue that goes with it. I bet as soon as the news hit the airwaves screenwriters were scrambling for their laptops, lol. So, all you disappointed Charlie Sheen fans, just wait for the fall line-up of tv shows to be announced. Don't be surprised if your idol shows up on TBS.
