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.

This is Warners PR move...
Warner Bross is doing the right thing -
for 100 people.

What about the rest of the crew?
(The show employs 250 people)

And Charlie DID offer a couple of days ago,
to pay for 1/3 of the crews paychecks.

WHO CARES?!    

"ROOT CAUSE FOR CHARLIE'S ADDICTION DISCOVERED"

Miss that "high" from the fame received from "Apocalypse Now"...your first movie at 20. Try everyday to relive it.

22yrs later and you havn't figured that out? Took me one time of watching your interviews.


Now can I have $1.8 million for diagnosing you? Can't be any harder than repeating lines in front of a camera.

Charlie, take note here. The consensus shows that 99% of the posters here are in favor of Warner and Lorre. You think you have fans? Where??

I think CBS has handled this whole situation rather well. Paying the crew shows a level of decency not seen in most corporate environments in ages. I also think that them not responding to Charlie's behavior other than doing what they can to get him help shows they comprehend he is seriously ill (likely bipolar in a Manic state from recent interview footage and probably has been self-medicating with drugs for ages while acting out with violence and sexual addiction). When he crashes from his manic state and sees how he behaves, he's going to realize that everyone he's been attacking has actually had his back the whole time. Hopefully humility will ensue.

Funny then if you want to say Charlie is to pat on the back (idiots)
I posted this am that I wanted to see Charlie pay them out for the next headline. Instead Charlie decided to run his vomiting mouth on TMZ. See if Charlie really WAS as smart as he thinks he is he would have coughed up something to score some points on that good ol team he's got going there. Epic Fail. LOSING!

If he really was in the right (he aint) he would just sue them to get the money back. But I highly doubt he's going to see a dime considering his unstable mental condition who is a harm to cast and crew. One minute Chuck is bad. Then accused him of abuse and bullying then flip flops to want to work with him again. Say wha? I mean when I'm mad. I'm mad their ain't no flip flopping anything. He can't even say as to what Chuck did other then "allegedly" he had no script. So then go home. The vanity cards dude are laughable. Hurt little boy because somebody said something that might have struck home. This is comedy and the comedian can't handle a joke.


This is probably Charlie's best moment ever for him. Enjoy the fall buddy. Don't come back till you get your head straight. Anyone who deals with him at this point is an enabler. Publicist even hit the road. He's not even loyal to his team mates he throws them under the bus.

LOSERS!

Love Charlie.

Nobody is talking about his "Goddesses" Derek. Because no one cares. The only parts to those stories anyone was interested in was him acting nutzo, getting cops called,drug allegations and going to the hospital. Distorted mind.
