'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...

LOL Hairplug Piven? seriously? and annoying voice Saget? Might as well rename it AfterTwo-And-A-Half-Men and watch the ratings plummet during ep 2.

Just move Judith kick Herb out, have Herb into Charlie's house and have him and Alan live there together and take care of the house while Charlie is away (forever). It could go on for a couple more seasons

Just cancel the show already. None of these actors is a good choice. I can't think of any actor that would be a good fit for this douche-bag character

Charlie Sheen made the show but I do believe that Jon Cryer and the actress that plays Berta, and Jake and the rest could pull off a show WITHOUT a Charlie Sheen replacement. Berta is hysterically sarcastical and funny and Jon Cryer pulls his own as well.

No one can replace Charlie Sheen! Ever!
The only one who even comes close... is Rob Lowe!!!

Ha Ha "re-tooling" is exactly what they would be doing by replacing Charlie, but who else is a big enough tool to fill the spot?

TMZ quote "There's a 50/50 chance "Two and a Half Men" will not come back for a 9th season..."

Way to commit.

TO: ELIZABETH MURPHY who wrote:
"spin-off with Jake going off to college"

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You know something, that's a great idea, and it would keep a lot of characters on the show, especially Alan (his Dad), Judith and Herb, and especially Holland Taylor who has already said on one episode that she would be paying for Jake's college tuition! Kind of like what the Cosby's did only funnier since Jake has never been known for being the "brains" in the family.

If they cancel the show altogether, the only thing I'll be watching on CBS is David Letterman.

I can't stand Woody. I don't want Jeremy and I don't want Bob. Just cancel the show. Unless they can get Rob Lowe.
