Members of the crew tell TMZ .... they were told "Men" creator Chuck Lorre spearheaded the move, got Warner Bros. on board and as a result more than 100 people will be getting their paychecks.

Members of the crew estimate they will collectively get around $2 million for the 4 weeks of work.

One crew member tells us he and his colleagues are "ecstatic."

Warner Bros. had no comment.

Take it out of Chucklenuts' paycheck, the disruption is all his fault.
WB is just avoiding lots of individual lawsuits here. The crew will just piss the money away on beer, lotto tickets and weed.

$2 million dollars divided by 100 workers x 4 weeks means each person earned on average of $10,000 for 1 months of work! Are you kidding me? These guys are all totally overpaid. I have zero sympathy. Fire them all and dismantle these damn unions commanding these ridiculous salary's for these workers. No wonder my cable bill is so high!

They could probably change Charlies on the show like they changed Darrens in the Bewitched show. The nitwits who watch the show would never know the difference. Maybe they could be Jack Black?

Where's KOOKY?    

I'm glad to hear this. Why should hard-working men and women suffer because of little boy Charlie?

You know what's really sad? Look at the figures given here. They'll be paying ONE-HUNDRED people for FOUR weeks, totaling $2 million dollars. A-hole CS makes that PER EPISODE!!! Do the math, then realize just how absurd it is that so much money goes to such a frickin' LOSER!!!

GAWD, I DETEST CHARLIE SHEEN!!!!!

Charlie Clean    

You can thank Charlie for this. If he hadn't been so vocal and critical of Chuck Lorre and the Producers of the show they would've never paid up. This is a PR stunt to take off some of the heat Charlie is laying out.

There are highly paid executive producers, directors, etc that get paid much more than the guy holding the boom stick.

That's nice of them but they will still be out of a job and collecting unemployment!
I also think WB's are doing it b/c they don't need another scandal. 2 million isn't jack squat compared to what Charlie claims he's suing them for.
This could get interesting as well ````` mainly if there's a contract, in force!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bet WB's will pay off the other 2 men and actors as well.
