"Two and a Half Men"

'Charlie' is Dead

and NEVER Coming Back

The season premiere of "Two and a Half Men" will leave NO DOUBT -- Charlie Sheen's character is dead and gone ... for good.

TMZ has spoken with sources on set for last night's taping of the premiere. Now, we don't want to be douche bags and give it all away -- so we'll just say that in one brilliantly written scene, the producers make sure there's absolutely no way for 'Charlie Harper' to return to the show in the future. 

Although ... he definitely leaves his mark on the episode.

As for Ashton Kutcher's debut -- we're told he and Jon Cryer had good chemistry ... and he went out of his way to interact with the audience.  At one point Ashton even snuck into the crowd and surprised a woman with a back rub.

At least one audience member said Ashton seemed dry and didn't quite own the character. Can't please 'em all.

Oh, and our spies didn't spot Demi Moore or Chuck Lorre -- but it's a good bet Chuck was there to finally say sayonara to Charlie Sheen Charlie Harper.

Seriously, everybody else has moved on. Good luck to both Charlie's new Show & the return of the rest of the phenomenal cast, as well as to the new comer to 2 1/2 men!

Charlie Sheen pays hookers to live with him, Ashton Kutcher sneaks up on unsuspecting women to cop a feel when his sugar mommy isn't there to watch him. I don't know who's the bigger degenerate...

Nice red bowtie ??
Firstly we have to examine the different cultural views behind the color red. The first thing we have to realize is that the western and eastern views of the color are very different.

In the western, Christian world, red is associated with sin, blood, jealousy, and sex. The Devil is often depicted as being a red creature, and an angry person can be described as "seeing red". In the classic novel "The Scarlet Letter" the protagonist has to wear red letter "A" to mark her adultery. Also, the term "red light district" describes an area where brothels are.

In Chinese tradition however, red is a very positive color associated with money, fertility, and good luck. Chinese wedding dresses are red, and money is gifted in red envelopes during the Chinese New Year.

With globalization and the merging of all of these different worlds, red has come to be a very complex and moving color in modern society.

When we see someone in a red necktie we might think of power, wealth, and a certain ruthlessness. This is a man who means business and will do whatever it takes to achieve his goals. All of these are reasons why a man might prefer a red necktie.

If you are thinking about donning this color, be careful to think about the image you are projecting to the people around you, and if this is the message you want to convey.

It is not going to be the same without Charlie. Couldn't Lorree give him his job back. I think he was really sorry-so why not be the bigger person and give him another chance. JMHO

I am always amazed that grown men can be so petty. This was Mr. Lorre's opportunity to rise above it all and show he is the better man. Instead he shows the world he is just as petty as Mr. Sheen. Done watching anything Mr. Lorre is involved in. Grow up

huck Lorre has ruined Two and A Half Men. It has turned from a funny show, and now is a disturbing, twisted, Not Funny show.
People will watch the first show, but the following episodes will see the show ratings dip until it is canceled.
“Charlie's cause of death, apparently, is Parisian subway car. Harper's stalker-turned-wife Rose.” “Charlie will die a violent death when he is mowed down by a subway train. Vey twisted and sick, Very bad writing, not funny, not true to shows characters.
Ashton Kutcher will make his début performance as internet billionaire Walter Schmidt, who ends up buying Charlie Harper Malibu beach house, and Alan and Jake live with him. Very bad writing, not funny, not true to shows characters.
