'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.

Charlie still can do "Major League 3 1/2" - YEAH RIGHT.
He is a liability to CBS.

Not a shock. Even the biggest stars can only push it so far before the studios get fed up with them. I hope Charlie thinks about his behavior when he realizes all the crew members that are out of a job now. He acted like their savior before, but this is 100% his fault.

Don't shut it down! Continue the show (or a replacement) with the same cast, MINUS Mr. Nutcase Charlie.

I sure hope EVERYONE in overpaid/overpriced Hollywood is watching Mr. Sheen and they BLACKLIST him FOREVER.

Bye Charlie! You reap what you sow. Loser!

He needs to get help. Why the hell doesn't his family intervene? Glad they shut down production, he is really sick.

Either get him help or write his obit.

It is about time that someone in the Hollywood industry takes a stand! To many times this behavior has been acceptable from someone who is considered a "role model" for others. Kudos to Warner Bros. and CBS for putting up for what is right. Mr Sheen is in desperate need of help, I pray he gets it before it is too late. It is a tragic waste of a talented man!

What an a--hole Charlie is! I am so glad CBS called his bluff and shut down the show. I do feel bad for all the other people on the show and crew members who have to suffer because he is a jerk. Charlie is getting his just desserts!!

As much as I enjoy Two and a half men, I can't say I blame CBS or the other big wigs.
Charlie, I've always stood bye your side. It's your life and money you should live, spend it how ever you choose.
But now you're dragging everyone else on the whole production crew down with you.
Come on dude, if you want out ask. If you want to keep doing TAHM then clean up during filming season, and do that voodoo you do so well.

Thank you Warner Bros., CBS and Chuck Lorre (AKA Chaim Levine)!

Time to teach Charlie Sheen, this over-paid douchebag of an actor who runs Hollywood. And to have some respect for the people who make you look good.

So what? The show was one-note and the jokes were getting old. All sitcoms some to an end. Hopefully the creators will come up with a funnier and better show with hotter & cooler stars.
