'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?

I don't watch "Men" anymore for a couple of reasons. 1. The writing sucks and 2. I can't stand Ashton Kutcher in "Men". I will, however, be watching the reruns with Charlie Sheen. At least with Charlie Sheen he made being a playboy appear respectable whereas Ashton Kutcher makes it seem vulgar. And why are women always wearing their undergarments to bed. This is America for Christ's sake not the middle east.

I think Ashton does a great job and he has plenty of acting roles under his belt to prove he was qualified for the job. Recent episodes I think were as funny as any of the older ones and to me the show hasn't missed a bit during the transition. I like that Ashton is a different type of person. Maybe Jake is the "new" Charlie once he gets older? He seems to be headed that way except he's not very sharp lol.

As a female, I really enjoy watching 2-1/2 men. Charlie Sheen is a funny guy as is the rest of the cast. A good, funny sitcom, far better than the cr-p that's on today, in my opinion. I don't think that Ashton Kutcher will be bad, but not as good as Charlie Sheen.

Seriously, I don't get why Ashton Kutcher is getting slammed like this just because some people like the show better with Charlie Sheen. After what Charlie had put everyone through, you'd think Ashton wouldn't get this kind of disrespect. Ashton is an all-around nice guy. So what if he didn't have the same kind of humor that Charlie had? He's not trying to be like Charlie Sheen. Some people just need to get over it. Charlie is off the show and he's not coming back because he blew career right out of the water.

I really didn't want to like this show because of all the stuff with Charlie Sheen. I thought he was just a poor little rich boy and I wasn't going to watch it but then I came across it one day and it's a funny show...I guess I am just watching reruns now, but it is one of the best shows I've seen in awhile. I watched one of the shows with Ashton and I say bring Charlie back...and Charlie get yourself together you are a funny man and you have alot to offer with your talents...Ashton, I don't know man, you seem like a whinning baby...grow up and be a man

Is Sheen behind this or in on this idea of billboards proclaiming Kutcher is no Sheen. Thank God he's not. He's not supposed to be is he? He's supposed to be a different character, not a new Charlie. I enjoy watching the show. Just would like to see Rose.

You can tell what comments come from the teeny boppers and the ones that really know what makes good comedy. Aston is a one horse pony... He really only plays one character over and over and over... He really should have stuck with modeling but then again, he really isn't anything great to look at either... Sorry... I've followed his career and it seems like he really doesn't know what acting is all about... He plays himself and nothing more. Charlie had a career before he came to Men and he was a big part of the show...Jon Cryer and he played off each other so well, I just don't see that with Jon and Aston.. It's as if Jon is carrying Aston... But as with everyone else, that's just my opinion and you are welcome to yours...

I am sure that there are lots of shows for Kutcher, but Two and a half men is not.
They show is now carried by every other character in the show, Kutcher has become like the outsider,
Whether you like Charlie Sheen or not, the show was his, is time to simply let go.

Ashton K. is being killed by the writing which stinks. They put him in a rock solid mold, a fatal love for a woman who treats him like a child. The whole thing stinks except for the rest of the regular cast who manage some humor around the rotten character nobody likes. Get some decent comedy writers or quit.

Charlie it is just plain dumb!

There are children and women being forced into slavery by the sex trade all over the world and they waste time reporting this.

Ashton Kutcher has no acting ability regardless of what role he has managed to land.

He was in way over his head even in That 70's Show acting like the fool that he is.
