'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...

They should replace him with Richie Sambora. That would be the ultimate revenge by Chuck Lorre.

Its been 8 years, cancel the show already. Replacing Sheen after 8 years is like replacing Curly on the Three Stooges with Joe. Just didn't work.

Chuck Lorre / Levin: If you're watching this just know that the audience despises Piven - Piven is nothing but a blowhard egotistical TOOL that will one day not show up for work claiming mercury poisoning from eating too much sushi. Good luck.

I'm not crazy enough to think my little old opinion means anything to CBS/#WB/Lorre, but I won't watch it w/o Charlie Sheen.

Hallelujah!!! But, the bad news is they will probably just replace it with some 'reality' BS.

When that Angus kid flashed his armpit hair on the air is when it stopped being good. Renamed the show "3 Men" or can it.

I would rather have Charlie Sheen come back if they offer the role to Bob Saget. I vote for Woody he would for sure b the best replacement.

Without Charlie...2 1/2 Men is Dead..

Bring back Charlie for a last season, the ratings will soar, and 2 1/2 men will have an END that its fans deserve. Being a 2 1/2 Men fan for years and years, I think we deserve an actual finale.
