Charlie Sheen

'Extremely Disappointed' with

the New 'Two and a Half Men'

Charlie Sheen has once again turned on "Two and a Half Men" .... saying he's now "extremely disappointed" with the way producers are "handling what I left behind."

Sheen was out in L.A. yesterday ... when a photog asked if Charlie could explain why "Men" was slipping in the ratings from the show's explosive debut.

Charlie -- who recently said he "loved" the first episode of the Ashton Kutcher era --  explained, "People aren't stupid ... not all of them."

FYI -- "Men" is still high atop the ratings ... in fact, this week's episode is UP one-and-a-half rating points from the episode that ran exactly one year ago.

The man has a valid point. Everyone else is carrying the show but it feels like there is no real star anymore. Ashton is a supporting character actor not a star, despite what his ego may tell him. Charlie definitely had his part down but despite what he might say it was still his actions that caused this mess. Though i am certain that his nemesis is not without blame as well.

The cocaine really did a number on Charlie's image.

Just keep tuning out, and maybe Lorre will get the message. ITS OVER. You had what, 10 good years. Lots of shows get cancelled and the sun still comes up every morning. To bad Lorre keeps trying to get milk from an empty cow. Let it go already.

Charlie made everyone else in the cast shine. The new show is horrible and proves that Charlie was the talent. Miss you Charlie - Take care of yourself.

Even before Charlie Sheen got fired, the show was getting very old. Same old stuff. Wouldn't matter who came in. Just not working.

When Michael J. Fox left Spin City, due to his Parkinsons Disease, Charlie Sheen was the replacement. That didn't work either.

Charlie is totally right. The show is going in the wrong direction. Friends are telling me their not going to bother watching it anymore. Truth is they want Charlie back.

I agree! (although it wasn't a show I watched other than during the day in syndication before) Cryer (for what ever reason) annoys me (every show he is in including Hot Shots). Ashton was always best as a bit player (side kick) and his character just doesn't fit with the show.

I just love his new wig. He must have wigs with different lengths . If Ashton ever starts to wear a wig like sheen and cryer then maybe they can have a wig party and come together. Ashton is already rambling like Sheen. Does Demi Moore wear a wig?

Oh good, Chuckles has returned to his usual pr*ck self. He can't pretend to be human for very long. We're enjoying the new Two & a Half Men, but even if it goes off the air eventually, Chuckles still lost the fight. He lost his job, lots of $$ and the respect of a lot of people. Even his lawsuit failed; he only got what he would have gotten if he'd left like a professional. So, here's big FU, Chuckles, and whatever you're in next, we'll be sure to miss - and that's a promise.

Charlie Sheen overplayed his game. Burned alot of bridges. The show will cancel. The TV show was old before Sheen got fired. Same old stuff.

The producers and or writers are having a field day with our intelligence. Bring Alan... Out of the closet, give him a boy friend, and, Bringing Kutcher in as a depressed whinny moron, was not the way to go. Clean Kutcher Up... Let Him Be Alann's Muse, who he can teach and groom.. put him in a white suit, and for godsake, get him a hair cut...and then have him go after Alans X. He He!

Agree with Sheen. I use to love this show. Can not stand the character that Ashton plays - its so stupid. I don't find him attractive at all and it's been nothing but T & A. The story lines-FAIL. John Cryer still begging for sex from his girlfriend. What really makes me sick is the way they play all the stupid women on this show that fall at the feet of an idiot like the Ashton character. At least Charlie had 2 or 3 serious girlfriends on the show and they were not portrayed as being stupid and just wanting a roll in the hay. I don't find Ashton as a "chick magnet" like Charlie was just naturally a "chick magnet". He looks greasy, unkept, and to top it all off - incredibly stupid. Not a whole lot of women go for someone so stupid - he opens his mouth and sounds like a whining 2 year old baby. And they even have Bertha goo goo eyeing him. To top it all off, their is no "normal" grief from cryer's character or the mother about Charlie being killed in an accident. Most people that lose a son or bro even on a sitcom would go thru some kind of grief written into the comedy. Cryer only says bad things about his dead bro who took him in for all those years....doesn't make any sense to act like charlie was never on the show.

i watched the first episode with kutcher..haevn't seen it since.the show seemed to be relying on masturbation and ****oris humor.that gets old real fast and it's not funny anymore in the way of it's shock value.you can't replace sheen with masturbation humor and expect the show to survive solely based on those characteristics.
