'Two and a Half Men' Ad

You Don't Have to Settle

for Ashton Kutcher

4/24/2012 12:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen Two and Half Men billboard ad
Ashton Kutcher is no Charlie Sheen ... and he never will be ... at least that's the message an L.A. TV network is trying to convey in a new marketing campaign.

KTLA in Los Angeles has plastered billboards all over town promoting the syndicated run of "Men." The billboards feature Charlie's face next to the words, "The Original" ... and if it seems like it's a shot at Kutcher ... that's because it is.

A mole at the station tells us ... the marketing people are playing off the premise that "Men" was simply better with Charlie. They believe fans miss him ... and will be more into the reruns because Charlie "was the show."

Can't argue with facts.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis

The Weekend Getaway


0424_ashton_kutcher_mila_kunis_launchDo "friends" take weekend trips to the beach ... go shopping for flowers ... and hit Starbucks together? 'Cause that's what Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were up to this weekend.

The former "70s Show" costars were spotted in Carpinteria, CA together -- a small beach community near Santa Barbara.

The two were seen picking up coffee and later buying sunflowers ... out of a van.

Friends don't let friends rock red socks with shorts ... so, they gotta be dating ... right?

Charlie Sheen's character (himself) did indeed make for a great sitcom but perhaps if he wasn't so arrogamt he'd still be on the show making his 1.5 million per episode which apparanetly he doesn't think he needs. Ashton contributes his own personality and styleto the show and should NOT be harshly criticized as the "replacement" because he simply is not Charlie Sheen" If you don't lioke the new show...don't watch it. I watch both the new show and the old and enjoy both. I don't think the ad is directly aimed at Ashton. What it says is simply the truth "The original" because that's what Sheen is.

Now that Charlie Sheen is off the show I have been watching it. I can't stomach that guy. Kutcher is a far better choice for the role. :)

I love AK as an actor. He is good in the movies he plays in. Its not his fault the show is failing. Its not AK's doing. NO ONE CAN REPLACE CHARLIE. The show WAS Charlie Sheen. Lorre needs to swallow his pride, open his wallet and BEG CS to come back at ANY cost. Even as his ghost....it would make a GREAT show. Keep AK. Why fire him?

The show has run its course. Jake is no longer the cute lil "half-man" he was in the beginning. The whole "alan mooching everything for years on end" really got old.
And yes, Ashton really brings nothing to the show. I tried to watch it....I really did...It just wasn't funny.

Why didn't arrested wife beater Charlie Sheen do time in prison for choking his wife on Christmas morning. And then after he threathened to cut her head off "OJ" style. After all that too, the old alky geezer of a drug user has been supporting his own private Mexican illegal drug cartel does have a history of assaults against other women, too.

Ashton Kutcher just isn't right for that part. He's not that funny, I saw it twice and couldn't understand why the producers picked him. I don't think the show will / should last another season. sorry Ashton.

Give me a break. Aston has done a great job on the show and I haven't missed Charlie a bit. In fact, the change has revitalized the show.

In the begining I didn't care for Ashton but the last several shows have been a great improvement! I like Ashton and like the part he's playing. Sorry Charlie but you caused your own issues and are still acting immature about it. I like Ashton and think he brings new light to the show. Allen has been presented too much lately his role seems to be dumber, and that needs to change, not crazy about the character their making him, and would like to see more of Allen's mother back on the show.

The show is different with Ashton but not worse. The show is funny in a different way as well and still enjoyable and tolerable. It is not fair to compare Sheen and Ashton because they are as different as actors as in real life. Ashton is not a hedonist as Charlie and neither is his character. Anyway, I watch the show every week and won't stop just because Charlie is off. He is a jerk anyway and needs to rehabilitate his life and I hope he does for his sake and his family. I wish him well.

It doesn't matter which one is better or not better. Charlie Sheen needs to act like a man and let go of it; he's the one who screwed it all up, nobody else did. I knew he'd come back to start trouble. He just can't grow up.

The Sheen poster was an expensive cheap shot. The Walden character is and should be different from the C.Harper character. My disappointment is in the development of the Alan character into a total degenerate. These stories need redeeming features not just perversion and promiscuity.

Sorry but the show was better before Charlie left it. Aston is a great actor but it's the show itself that's not right. In the first place why would he let Charlies brother still live with him???? Makes no sense at all. Sorry but I stopped watching it but I do watch the reruns...
