Charlie Sheen -- You Ain't Comin' Back to 'Men'

3/23/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is "no chance" of Charlie Sheen coming back to "Two and a Half Men" -- this according to sources connected to the production of the show.

A story has been circulating that CBS wants Charlie back on the show. Fact is ... Charlie was hired by Warner Bros. and, as TMZ first reported, fired by Warner Bros. Only Warner Bros. can bring him back, and sources directly connected to the production tell us there is "no chance" of that happening.

"Men" creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre has been holding meetings about the future of the show and possible re-casting, but Charlie is history.

The story that CBS offered him his job back is simply bogus.  CBS can't rehire Sheen -- period.

That show will be unwatchable if they replace him. Not that it was that great to begin with. I guess they will try anything to keep that $ rollin in though. smh

Without Lorre's writing, Sheen wouldn't have been anybody.

He used Lorre's jokes in his sitcom, and became rich because of doing so, but now he decides that he should hate Lorre and pump his other stupid no-talent crap instead.

Mark my words, there is no way that CBS is going to hire that turd back. They already ditch Charlie. And who can blame them?

Anything will be unwatchable with Sheen in it. Not that it was that great to begin with. I guess he will try anything to keep that $ rollin in though. Losing!

Thank goodness - I was about to lose confidence in Warner Bros. There are numerous actors who could fill Charlie's shoes - he is not the only one who could make that program a success. The Company has an excellent supporting cast, so a decision will be made soon to continue. So, Charlie, you are not WINNING...DUH.

I think CBS has come to the conclusion that Sheen is more valuable than Lorre, if they have to choose between the two. Granted, they'd rather not have to make that choice, but if it comes down to push and shove...

"Without Lorre's writing"

The only thing that Lorre writes is his name all over the credits.

Obviously CBS has come to the conclusion that Lorre is infinitely more valuable than Sheen, if they have to choose between the two. Granted, they are smart to make that choice!

We already saw.

Sheen lost super duper big time and is losing every minute of every day now.

Sheen lies every word he speaks now.

He is toast and will die this year.

Unless he forks his dirty ego and gets real help.

The Big Bang Theory is an excellent, award winning comedy. Two and a Half Men and Mike and Molly are definitely not good shows.

The only thing Charlie is doing right now is shameless promotion. But the truth is his career is over long long time ago. It was Chuck Lorre who kept him alive.

I'm pretty much betting that Charlie Sheen will be back, whether that means firing Chuck Lorre or not. Two and a Half Men won't survive without Charlie, and it is CBS' highest rated sitcom (biggest money-making cash cow). They will let Lorre go before Sheen. Anyhow, I'm still convinced that this is all a contrived publicity stunt between CBS/WB/Sheen/Lorre/Everyone involved.
