"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.

ok I am a fan of both Charlie Sheen AND Ashton Kutcher so I am sad to see Charlie go but I am eager to see Ashton on TV again so I will be watching the "new" 2.5 Men. Now in a perfect word Charlie and Chuck Lorre make up and he puts Charlie BACK on the show and Ashton gets to stay too....I don't care how they kill off Charlie....it could have all been a bad dream....the episodes without Charlie I mean...it worked on Dallas lol...I'm just saying

Was one of my favorite shows. I will be boycotting Two & a Half Men with Kutcher. Even though I love some of the other actors on the show, Charlie made the show. Kutcher is a joke. He is so immature. Acts like a little kid - needs to grow up and will never be taken seriously as an actor.

Charlie Sheen was the show. His lifestyle is the same as the Charactor. The show will possitivly suck now. I will watch the first show with Ashton only to see what the do with Charlie Harper and never watch it again!! The show will be canceled after this season. YOu should have fired the stupid producer not the Actor!!!!

I think the season premiere started out great and was very funny with Charlies eulogy. All of the comments from his previous GF's were hilarious. I was very disappointing though when Ashton entered the mix. He seemed very mono-tone and not very funny. H's Ashton so the audience laughed at his jokes. Jon Cryer was carrying the rest of the show. I was not impressed and I did have high hopes for a successful season premiere.

Two and a Half Men sucks now! Ashton Kutcher is no replacement for Charlie Sheen. Charlie Sheen is a genius. This show should be cancelled because it sucks now without Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher's imbecile character or real self is not entertainment!
