Sheen Gloats

'Men' Can't Survive

Without Him

4/29/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen tells TMZ ... "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre is a "sad silly fool," an "A-hole p*ssy loser" and a "low rent, nut-less sociopath" who is now realizing the show can't survive without him -- and Charlie claims the ratings prove his point.

Sheen fired off a blistering letter, attacking Lorre in the wake of reports that Jon Cryer will get a bigger role on the show and Charlie will be replaced.

Charlie says, "... No one cares about your feeble show without me," adding, "The ratings right now are not a fluke.  It's a big fat mess.  A 2.0 demo.  That sucks."  Although the number is low, the show is in reruns.

But Charlie doesn't stop there, saying, "Not even a phone call to the man that put you on the map.  The man that put 500 million dollars in your pockets ... I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision."

And in the letter, which Charlie sent to TMZ as a messenger to Lorre, gets very personal: "They are planning on voting you off the AA island.  Even those clowns have no room for you anymore."

TMZ broke the story Thursday ... there's a 50/50 chance "Men" will not come back for Season 9.

Lorre started this - he was the one who publicly and repeatedly insulted Sheen in his "vanity cards".

If Lorre didn't want to be criticized, he shouldn't have criticized Sheen.

And Sheen's facts are right here: Sheen did save Lorre career, and Sheen did make a fortune for Lorre.

Charlie certainly keeps the whorish entertainment writers busy with his bitterness. I hope the bloke straightens out. I've been pissed at what happened to me in the media, too. It's just that he is telling the whole world about it. Showbiz ain't no easy life, mein bubelah!

Buh bye forever, Charlie.

So not sad. And yes so very very bad.

Good riddance forever.

I guess begging the dwindling audiences showing up on your tour didn't work. How pathetic, making the remarks, then begging people to save his job. He';; never work in this town again.

Although Charlie acks like a bipolar jerk, the show was based on him and he's the one who owns the beach house the show takes place. If he "dies" then it's not going to be a comedy. Nobody will watch a show that turns serious. Yes, they did manage to joke up his friend's (Emilio) death but Charlie is a third of the main characters.

Cancel it. Oh and I watched the first episode of Mike and Molly (the show that steals from Rosanne). Chuck should retire. Clearly the other writers of Two and a Half Men are doing most of the work.

You are correct. Unfortunately some people didn't pay attention to Chucks slanderous unhumorous cards degrading Charlie and they aren't willing to take the time to look. Probably because Chuck's cards suck so much. Not one has ever had anything funny in it.

Let's see: Roseanne, Grace Under Fire, Cybil, Dharma and Greg, Big Bang Theory and Mike and Molly. Yep Lorre would be nowhere without Charlie Sheen. Think it's the other way around, this show made Sheen relevant again. And all he had to do was show up, say the funny lines written for him and get paid obscene amounts of money. No acting involved he was just playing himself. He blew a sweetheart deal and his reputation as a professional all to hell.

YAY! Give the starring role to Jon Cryer. He's MUCH funnier than Charlie - in fact, he's always carried the whole show!

I watched 2 1/2 Men from day one and I never noticed any vanity cards until Charlie started talking about them and someone pointed out they came on at the end of the show but the camera only focused on them for a second and they're gone. I watched to see what was on them but there was no way in hell I could read them.

So if Charlie felt insulted by them him and Chuck were the only ones who knew what was on them. The public sure couldn't read them.

Carlos Irwin Estevez is a sad silly fool, an A-hole p*ssy loser and a low rent, nut-less sociopath who is now realizing he can't survive without writers like Chuck Lorre

No one cares about Carlos Irwin Estevez's feeble tour without Chuck Lorre. The poor attendance right now is not a fluke. It's a big fat mess. A losing Sheen demo. That sucks, Carlos! Oh well, it's OK, because you can jsut go away. Forever.

Charlie. It was a TV show. Your adoring viewers have already almost forgotten it and are on to watching something else. The people who worked on it are either already working on something else or are soon to be.

You messed it up. Suck it up. Live and learn and get on with your life.

Sorry, Charlie, but even with you the show was gasping it's last breath - last season was a disaster of "reaching for" a funny new topic - Charlie is simply abandoning a sinking ship and making himself look good in the process

I'd be embarrassed to be caught watching a show with crazy, drug addled Charlie-boy in it. The ratings are tanking because no one wants to watch loser Charlie. Any character he tries to play now will be forever tainted because all anyone will every remember is his lunatic ranting and raving. He turned himself into a pathetic joke no one respects AND he did it all by himself. Revamp the show without him and I would probably tune in to check it out.
