'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...

Bob Sagat? Are you kidding me!! What a joke. Cancel it before you completely ruin a great show. Without Charlie, there is no show anyway.

CBS establishment is treating Charlie Sheen like a little boy who needs to be spank for biting the hand that fed him. I was truly a fan of the show, and to think you can get someone else to play Charlie Sheen himself is a joke. Jon C. couldn't carry a show if Chuck Lorre held it up for him. I'm sorry Two and a Half-Man, but theirs no one that can save your show but Charlie Sheen himself and because you feel disrespected and hurt, you want to continue to punish Charlie. You're losing money money money money and money.

@Gailena... Understand that they are not trying to have someone play Charlie Sheen's character. That would be impossible! They are simply trying to find someone that can come in and still keep a similar vibe and excitement going with their own character.
@HaHa... I love the spinoff idea. Jake and Woody together would be hilarious.

Sagat? Really? That'll be two Cryers.
Piven? Maybe. Not a big fan but possibly could work.
I could see Harrelson bringing a little something to the table with a revamp of the show.

My husband & I love this show. We watch reruns everyday, even tho we have seen them dozens of times. We will NOT WATCH the show if Charlie Sheen is not reinstated. Chuck and Charlie need to bury the hatchet. The ratings would go through the roof if Charlie returned.

Chuck Lorre will perpetually receive millions of residuals from ALL OF THE HIT TV SERIES he has created and WILL STILL CREATE. Meantime, looney Charlie has succeeded in hitting rock bottom and the mere mention of his name spells doom among Hollywood writers and producers. Even his colleagues will not even dream of working with him in any TV series and films. He has put himself in such a very pathetic situation that he's made himself a mere curiosity actor of small-venue doing boring and irrelevant "live show" available for a few bucks with nothing to offer to his equally pathetic few supporters.

Looney Charlie can badmouth THE CREATOR of his former hit series to his content but the fact remains he will NEVER regain his former fame, while Chuck Lorre will continue to create more hits.

So who's winning again? Obviously the name is NOT Charlie.
