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 nerve!
He basically left
everybody scrambling
to replace him, I think they've
done a wonderful job considering
the time they had to replace his
stupid butt. If the show fails,
it's still Charlie's fault- what a jerk!

I happen to love the
new season, there's more
substance to the show than
one liners with a beer in
hand.
Sorry Charlie, you should
be more disappointed in yourself.

I thought I could actually get into the show. I gave it a chance. It failed. Lame jokes, uninteresting storyline, etc. Ashton is just not funny, and Jon Cryer's character has taken a turn for the worst. Now they are tring for cheap jokes instead of interesting storylines. Gave it a shot, now i'm a non believer. We miss Charlie!

I agree with Charlie, I tho, didn't like how Chuck Lorre made Charlie Harper out to be a dead beat...giving the women herpes, etc & being broke. That was Charlie's charm. Also every time someone knocks on the front door I pray it's Charlie coming home. It's just not the same. Jon is trying to carry the show. Love him, but loved Charlie more!

The new show sucks. The only reason people are watching it now is because of the backstory and hype. There is olnly so long that people will stay tuned in.

Yeah, the first episode was decent -- but only at the end when it looked like he was going to be fun party guy, like Charlie was. But then it just fizzled. It's beyond a snore-fest. What happened? They need to give Ashton a pay cut and John & the kid a pay RAISE, because those two are totally carrying the show, IMO.

Different Rules Apply    

Thank you TMZ for giving us the chance to voice our opinion about Men. I watched the most recent air and actually cringed throughout the show with embarrassment for all of the cast. What's with the oven mitt puppet and child like stoned billionare??? SOOOOO LAME! ASSton has no idea how to grab this character and has turned him into Kelso - not funny, and it leaves the rest of the cast overacting because THEY TOO KNOW IT IS LAME!! Charlie, we think of you often and we realize more than ever you are an OUTSTANDING ACTOR with impeccable TIMING for comedy. We hope you find something else to do soon. AND attn: Chuck Lorre - what's with the opening song and Kutcher's child molester look at the end??? CREEPY AND JUST BAD!!

i agree with charlie. ashton kutcher's character is boring, they've made alan a simpering fool, jake and his smart-ass remarks are gone, berta has lost her edge, (her lust for ashton kutcher reduces her to sappy voiceovers?? that is not the berta we all came to love!) and evelyn, rose, and herb are nowhere to be seen.

what bothers me alot is the way charlie's death has been treated.....alan even making jokes about it. does no one miss him? all those women who were so in love with him.....not one sheds a tear when he is gone? and rose killed him? come on, that was a stupid way to kill him off!

I wanted so much to like this show, but I just don't. I like AK, just not in this role. Bring Charlie back! His being over the top is what made the show!

The new version of Two and A Half Men is too painful to watch! It is awful. It is not funny. It is doomed for failure. It really needs Charlie back!

Not giving Charlie a pass. He is just as responsible as anyone for his not being with the show. He IS right about how bad the show is now. Let's face it though, the whole premise was going stale because Jake was an integral part of the show, and his growing up took away the funny kid aspect.Imagine,say, the Brady Bunch if the show ran 15 years and you had 30 year old "kids" still living at home. Not that Brady Bunch was as good as "Men". Just using it as an illustration.
Oh, and Kutcher is terrible. Stopped watching after the second episode this season.
