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.

You are forgetting that fur animals are rodents. They aren't dogs or cats or dolphins. It's like worrying about the treatment of rats in a dumpster.

2 1/2 men sucked last night. None of those characters would have behaved that way if Charlie really died and it was a tasteless attempt by Chuck Lorre to take cheap shots at Charlie and even his family. Those of us who actually watched the show all these years knows that he never caught STD's (his brother always lamented about it) and Rose would never kill him and his mother would have not done that at the funeral (the reception maybe). It was one cheap shot after another and it wasn't funny. I used to laugh out loud and I didn't laugh once last night. The laugh tracks are all that saved the show.

No more fat mike on tmz. He can't tell ANY story without waving his arms around like a tard. Send him back to his forklift job.

I have not been a Two and a Half men fan, bu*****ched. Disgusting dialogue, in my view, and Ashton is still not a compelling actor. His own personality is much more appealing than his acting roles. I tivo'd Dancing and watched it with pleasure.

27 million people wanted to make sure that Sheen was really dead. In the box. Bye bye.

Harvey,

Brutality is a functional part of the cycle of life. Get over it or wear a darker shade of lense.

Ever see pictures of the very large constricter that was killed - from the inside - by a large alligator? Oh wait. TMZ posted them.

If the brutality of nature disturbs you - talk to your therapist.

Did you ever get your seats in your car recovered? Oh Wait, you feel somewhat removed from that incident, don't you.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Of course it was the Sheen hype machine. Anyone who thinks kutcher can carry the show is blind.

I enjoyed Men and will be watching it next week. Ashton and the rest of the cast were great. People act like they can't think beyond Charlie's role in the show. The new character is just that a new character. Charlie is gone people so get over it and he's not coming back. Give Ashton a chance he was good.

Have never watched DWTS and won't be watching it just because they have a transgender on it.
