'Two And A Half Men'

On the Chopping Block

4/28/2011 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a 50/50 chance "Two and a Half Men" will not come back for a 9th season ... people connected with the production tell TMZ.

There are certain things we know for sure ...

-- Charlie Sheen will NOT be coming back to the show
-- Chuck Lorre has a plan for re-tooling the show, but no deals with replacement actors have been made.  In fact, no offers have even been put on the table.
-- A decision on the fate of "Men" will be made before May 18.

The Hollywood Reporter says Lorre is thinking of beefing up Jon Cryer's role and bringing a new actor onboard to replace Sheen.  H.R. is saying some of the candidates are Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget.

One well-connected source tells TMZ, "There really is a good chance the show won't come back."

Stay tuned...

I think they should just cancel the show. It was built around Charlie Sheen.

To try to re-cast and re-tool the show means that it is going to lose all its specialness (whatever it had left, that is). And it will be totally lame. Cancelled in 5 episodes.

The ONLY actor who could pull it off would be Jeremy Piven, but I think that would be Ari Gold meets Charlie Harper. Not gonna work.

I used to watch the show all the time. Now, I can't stand to watch reruns with Sheen.

Of the three Woody Harrelson would be the best choice. Bob Saget will have the Full House/ AFV air about him (even if he is an edgier comic in his shows) that will take the edge off the show, while Jeremy Piven is just an a-hole.

Those are the only three you can come up with? That show is done. Good going Chuck and Charlie, you guys slaughtered the golden cow. If this show doesn't continue, they will lose so much money on the syndication deal.
