Charlie Sheen:

Ashton's Going Down

With the Ship

5/13/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen delivered the ultimate back-handed compliment to Ashton Kutcher, telling TMZ he's talented but the show will tank.


Charlie tells TMZ, "Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer ... Oh wait, so am I!!"

Charlie continues, taking a shot at the show, saying, "Enjoy the show America.  Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB."  Essentially, Charlie is saying the age group that supported him is going to tune out.

Charlie adds, "Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton.  There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."  Of course, Charlie is referring to his nemesis, "Men" creator and Executive Producer Chuck Lorre.

Why don't you guys tell the "rest of the story"? How about the fact that Charlie congratulated Ashton and wished him luck? Also wished luck to CBS and WB? Just report the side you want slanted right? Secondly, what kind of reporters are you? The only way Ashton can REPLACE Charlie Sheen on 2 & 1/2 Men is if he plays the character of Charlie Harper and we all know that ain't happening. He is joining a re-written and re-vamped show and in the end the only thing that will remain the same is the name. I like Ashton and wish him luck and perhaps the new show will be successful. However, my loyalty lies with Charlie Sheen. Also love to hear how people hate Charlie and always disliked him on the show, (funny he carried the show quite successfully for 8 years and always had good ratings) And yes I know others were on the show as well, but, even the haters should agree that the show was pure Charlie Sheen. Jon Cryer never ever had the panache to carry it off or they would have never went looking for someone new in the first place.

Charlie was the least talented member of the cast. I watched the show in spite of him to see all of the other talented and funny members of what is essentially an ensemble piece. No way Charlie was the glue that held the show together. Not a big fan of AK, but just about anyone other than CS can only bring another plus to the character mix.

Charlie looked young and healthy on that show, now he looks like an old, skinny crack addict.

Oh wait, HE IS an old, skinny crack addict.

Spiteful? You must know a different definition of the word, because last time I checked he was doing nothing but paying Kutcher's compliments both here and on Twitter. Not that Demi's HUSBAND deserves it.

adjective /ˈspītfəl/ 

Showing or caused by malice
- the teachers made spiteful little jokes about me

The "compliment" made here by Charlie the Tuna were accurately described in the first sentence of the article upon which we are all commenting: "backhanded."


adjective /bakˈhandid/ 

Made with the back of the hand facing in the direction of movement
- a backhanded pass

Indirect; ambiguous or insincere
- coming from me, teasing is a backhanded compliment

In this case, most OBVIOUSLY, the second meaning of "backhanded" applies. It could also be seen as "spiteful," by those reading it.

IMO, "spiteful" definitely applies!

Everyone can be replaced in someway. With Jake getting older I think it is the time to change the show theme and remove Charlie's character. I agree with some of the comments 'I watched the show because of all the actors who starred in it' I hope Charlie gets help and puts his ego away.

Charlie, you are right but take of that stupid hat - it makes you look like a 90-year-old man.

In your own words "because last time I checked he was doing nothing but paying Kutcher's compliments" doesn't help the fact the Charlie publically slammed Kutcher at first, UNTIL Charlie heard all the negative backtalk about his statement did he change it TRYING to prove he is a better man. Which he is NOT!

One more question, why bring Demi into this?

Why not? I don't like him. Never did and I always thought his "career" was based on his marriage to her. MY OPINION. And there was no "slamming", imo. He always said that Kutcher is talented (like hell he is).

Get real!! His career was based on That 70's Show.

I see how you blew off my other comment completely. Truth hurts, huh?

I hope Charlie Sheen stops his spiteful comments toward his former show, and former wives. The best thing for Charlie Sheen to do is to put away his profane, spiteful comments and try to move forward in a positive way. Charlie you have dug yourself into a pit-with your own tongue!! What comes out of Charlie Sheen's mouth tells the world what is in his heart.
Clearly Charlie's comment to Ashton and stating the show will sink was meant in a spiteful way.

Matthew 15:18-20
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, ***********s, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
