'Men' Co-Creator -- The Show MUST Go On!!!

3/2/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who co-created "Two and a Half Men" with Chuck Lorre is FIGHTING to make sure the show does NOT get canceled ... and has been telling people, "This show is not over."

Lee Aronsohn – an executive producer on "Men" and "Big Bang Theory" -- has been vocal about NOT wanting to cancel "Men" .. especially because Lee recently made a deal to leave his post on "Big Bang Theory" to focus on Sheen's show.

But that was before the drama started.

Now, sources connected to the production tell us Lee had a "big meeting" with Chuck and a mystery third party yesterday regarding the fate of "Men."

We're told the mystery person could be another actor from the show ... or a bigtime exec.

Stay tuned ...

The show is Charlie. He can't be replaced with another actor or the remaining cast can carry the show. If he is allowed to come to work, I have no doubt that he'll be there and do his part.

I love this show and I actually support Charlie Sheen in all of this...but I think John Stamos would add a freshness and a longevity to the show that Sheen cannot offer. He should focus on his children, keep "winning" and pass the baton to Stamos.

I love two and a half men and if you don't have charlie you don't have a show. I want to say ,let him just do the show but he is actting crazy. So for his safety maybe it is better to have a break and hopefully he can clean his self up. They let this go on for a couple years and I want the show to go on so they need to clean him up and get his mind straight.

The sarcastic humor of 2 1/2 men is only funny if you think the actors realize that the script depicts unacceptable behavior. Now that we know Charlie fully beleives that the lines he is reading are proper and acceptable behavior it is no longer funny.

Charlie makes this damn show. Why is it okay for him to go thru women on the show and drink til he passes out but it's never okay to do it it real life? By firing Charlie they are really ****ing up no one will watch this show with out him.

The show won't be the same without Charlie Sheen. He is a sick man and needs help. Firing him is not going to help his sickness. He needs one more chance.

Well, c. sheen may have his unique talent and perspective as the character's interpreter of the brilliant creators of "Two and a Half Men" series, but sheen should Keep In Mind WHO the REAL brains are behind the series. sheen DEFINITELY BIT THE HANDS THAT FED HIM...WHAT AN INGRATE c. sheen's proved to be, notwithstanding.

Looking at the series creators Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn's photo above; these guys are MEN, and HANDSOME MEN at that! Cannot infer the same about c. sheen, unfortunately.

Another case of too much money. It is so sad when people become so self envolved. The show is great but, who needs this? I see this and it just makes me feel sad. $2 million an eppisode and that wasn't enough? What about those normal people that make $10 an hour. Enough is enough. Lets stop covering this nut case and move on.

CHUCK LORRE HAS REAL CLARITY OF MIND, seeing and speaking like the sharp-eyed, pristine logician Gautama Buddha (the Enlightened One). NO JOKE! WE NEED MORE OF THIS CLEAR THINKING, AND TRUE HUMOR.

The BrilliaT series creator "Two and a Half Men" Chuck Lorre is the humorous 180-degree side-of-the-coin of another series creator, "Twilight Zone's" Rod Serling. WE DESPERATELY NEED BOTH THESE INCISIVE TEADCHING-MINDS TODAY!

LORRE SAYS IT BEST: "Conscious existence flees...".

OR BY POLARITY (I think) REPELS TRANSCENDANT CONSCIOUSNESS, which MISPERCEIVES and FEARS BECOMING ABSORBED INTO THE PRIMORDIAL SOUP (which is REALLY annihilation, NOT TRANSCENDANCE).

SO, C. SHEEN IS THE MODERN VERSION OF THE IROQUOIS SORCERER, TADOHADO, "THE ENTANGLED ONE (Mind).
THE FATES HELP SHEEN IF HE TRANSMOGRIFIES INTO THE GREEK MEDUSA! NOTHING CAN HELP HIM THEN!

Well thats an end to an era. It's a sad day to be a fan of two and a half men. Charlie can never be replaced and i hope they do not try to replace him. It's not fair to the fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Without Charlie Sheen on Two and A Half Men, the show is nothing. I think all the other actors are very funny and play off of Charlie. without him the show is done. I will not watch it, in fact i will not watch cbs. Swallow your pride and ask Charlie to come back. What he does in his private life has nothing to do with the show. He is good at what he does. No one can take his place. So please reconsider. the show is the best sitcom on tv.
