Charlie Sheen

APOLOGIZES to Ashton

You Don't Suck, Bro

Charlie Sheen tells TMZ he feels REALLLLY bad for saying Ashton Kutcher "sucks" as the new lead on "Two and a Half Men" ... and now he's issuing an official apology to the actor.

It all started on "TMZ Live" last week ... when Sheen called in and told us, "I'm tired of lying ... I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck ... I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck."

But Sheen has since had a change of heart and drafted a letter to Kutcher ...which reads:

"Dear Ashton, 

My bad. 

I was disrespectful to a man doing his best.

I got excited and I threw you into the crossfire, but the rest of my statement I stand behind. You however, deserve better. 

Safety in your travels good sir.

CS"

So, we gotta ask ...

Yeah, that statement is what is known as a 'non-apology apology.' At least it appears he wrote it himself instead of trying to pass off the PR guy's boilerplate statement as his own 'sincere' words.

Now the question is .. Was Charlie Sheen on drugs when he said that comment or when he apologized?

I really like Ashton;but, the writers are lousy. Please tell them to write better and funnier scrips. Not so much obvious sex. Horrible. Being subtle is so much better!!

Charlie Sheen is the only person in the world who knows how to handle drugs and life at the same time, that's why he's winning

Truth be told, I do not like Two and a Half Men since Charlie's removal. The show does suck.I understand that there was a conflict between Charlie and the writers, but the show is not the same without Charlie. Ashton does not do the show justice. I would have prefered to see the show cancelled instead of what it has become. It just is not funny or does not have the sarcasm Charlie brought to the lines of the show. I am very disappointed in it.

I tried to watch 2.5 men. Truth is that it is awful. Barf jokes. Are you kidding me. She doesn't love me jokes. Worse. Not funny. These guys are in it to make money and have no pride if they are accepting and delivery material like this.

Ashton doesn't suck but now the whole show does. It's not because of Ashton, but because of the lack of Charlie Sheen. Rather watch the re-runs than this awful pathetic attempt to re-create a great show- not happening. I can't imagine that this is not the death of the show. Sad, but true. It's just awful now.

I'm confused...I tried to watch the "new" Two and a Half Men with Ashton and just couldn't stomach Ashton's (apparently trademark) juvenile humor and acting. In the past 20, or however many years it's been since That 70's Show, Kutcher's comedic acting had not evolved in the least (I couldn't stomach That 70's Show either, it was too juvenile to amuse me even at it's ?height? of popularity so the same type of humor all these years later was just too pathetic to endure). But here's my confusion: Did the new Two and a Half Men also fire the original writers from the Sheen episodes because the scripts and story lines seem to have been painfully dumbed down as much as Kutcher's own juvenile humor. I don't get it. With cheap to produce reality TV saturating our viewing options and good sit-com writers having less and less available work, how did this show go from adult, borderline sleazy but gotta love the bad boy's finesse and blatant, unapologetic devotion to his lifestyle to becoming some weak and strained version of comedy? It's almost as if Kutcher and/or a bunch of high school sophomores are writing the show and I'm guessing that's the only demographic who would be even vaguely amused by it. It's sad that Charlie Sheen went bipolar publicly but this cheap imitation of what had been a clever, adult comedy now views as a desperate attempt at life support for a sit-com which has no heart, soul or even a pulse. Just my opinion. Maybe they should have tried John Stamos, though Charlie Sheen was and always will be the only authentic person to play that role, period.
