'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?

Is there any way that Charlie can come back to CBS and 2.5 men?

Want to save the show? Kiss and makeup. The body that they buried and could not be identified was not Charlie. He is found alive and well in France. His jingle residuals have been acculating and he returns to purchase his home back. Kutcher marries the British lady and moves on. No charge, just a front seat at the taping.

Charlie Sheen is a million times better than Ashton Kutcher. And the role of Charlie is a billion times better than whatever his name is (I don't know, cuz I gave up watching after 2 episodes.) The show, without Sheen, sucks. The role, withour Sheen, is a disaster. This show is now dead.

On Ashton Kutcher vs. Sheen...I can argue the "facts" I happier these days with th Kutcher/ Cryer relationship...enough drunk ass playboys on tv these days!!! I see a better direction for the show now...by the way I'm a journalist and KTLA has always been a "Hollywood Reporter" station, not a real newser....slap the hand, lose the fish!!! so be careful about slamming "Men"... I still believe Cryer is a far better actor than either...and needs to be better showcased...I offered suggestions...but hey, I'm not a "Hollywood" type.

2 and a half men is horrible to watch. I must put the blame on Ashton Kutcher - his acting and his character is terrible. The producers and the writers have shown us that Charlie Sheen made this show. The latest is that Kathy Bates is suppose to play the character of Charlie - sounds like desperate measures to try and get people to watch this mess. Believe me... I do not agree with Sheen's behaviour but lets be realistic - Charlie made this show what it was. I stopped watching after the first show that starred Kutcher

Allen and his son and of course the housekeeper could hold that show up alone. They are the funniest. Of course where has the mom been? She was funny.

Of course he is no Charlie, he is Ashton and we have really been enjoying him on Three and a half Men. Charlie Sheen did all of this to himself. Ashton had nothing to do with it. I just hope Charlie can get clean and stay clean. If not for himself at least for his children.

Ashton is doing just fine with the material the writers are giving him. I would like to see the character of Alan changed so that he isn't quite the loser poser that is totally broke and couldn't care less about his son. I want the Dad Alan back and no more smoking pot and being totally clueless for Jake. What the heck are they doing to Jake anyway? I never thought of Jake as becoming a complete nothing and somebody that all of the adults on the show don't seem to care about.

if we need not watch, then, the show's ratings will fall more than they have been the whole season. Yes charlie is written off the show, so you think.... anything in Hollywood is possible. FYI, the drunk playboy routine WAS THE SHOW. You must be mentally challenged if you didn't know that!!! LOL

i didn't want to like the new show but, i really like ashton. in fact, i got a kick out a recent episode where ashton was playing the part of the "OMG" adult while helping out the kids who so very much seemed like ashton when he was in previous roles.

I don't know what's worse, the lousy acting of Ashton or the super bad writing by the so-called writers. He is not the one for this role. Charlie was the only person because the show was about him. Now we have pot smoking teens that also can't act and lesbian grandmothers....oh and don't forget that now we don't know if Alan is gay bi or straight! What a f'd up show it is now all because Loring bit off his nose to spite his face. How many other shows is he going to ruin?
