In the Ratings War

The "Two and a Half Men" season premiere DESTROYED "Dancing with the Stars" in the ratings -- and the Charlie Sheen hype machine ... not Ashton Kutcher ... is to thank for it.

And, Harvey thinks Chaz Bono is "the heat" on "DWTS" -- and Chaz proved it by unveiling his TOPLESS man body for all to see. Plus, West Hollywood bans fur sales -- so we go live to ritzy Rodeo Drive .... where an uninformed fur-lover states her case.

How about commenting on why you guys at TMZ are ignoring the pictures that are circulating all over the web that show Lindsay Lohan making out with her MOTHER Dina at Dina's birthday party as some club a few days ago?
You guys shove all the boring Lohan trial crap down our throats but you ignore the one interesting thing she's done in years? I mean.. the girl was tongue kissing her Mother.

Naked guys trump all.
"Crushing it" depends on more than a fleeting appearance.

Are all these problems that Tom Seizemore is having a sign that he is back to using drugs again?

It'd be funny if the critically bad reviews are from the same accounts.

Ashton was not funny. The new two and a half men was terrible. There was nothing funny in the whole show.

As far as dancing with the stars go, I banned it.

The Charlie Sheen roast was the best comedy act of the night.

I watched DWTS & I've always enjoyed the show, but last night's premiere was so lack luster. I was disappointed and will likely find something else to do or watch during that time slot. Sheen's Comedy Central Roast wasn't as good as past Roast's, either. Slash's guitar solo was fantastic!

Yes    

I watched 4 minutes of the show and feel I will never get that 4 minutes back. It was awful! I will never watch 2 1/2 men again.
