It's the decision we all saw coming ... "Two and a Half Men" has been greenlit for a 10th season.

The show's current stars -- Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones --  are all getting raises, says The Hollywood Reporter ... with Kutcher's salary hitting between $700k to $725k per episode.

Despite Charlie Sheen's very public firing, the show still wrangles in 15 million viewers each week ... making it the No. 3 primetime comedy on TV.

Looks like when Sheen called the show a "steaming pile of s**t" ... he forgot that "s**t" makes a whole lotta money.

Why should they cancel the show if it's the 3rd highest rated comedy on TV? That wouldn't make much sense. Lots of people must like the "manure."

I watched the first episode of the season, I was not impressed by Ashton's performance and the story was weak. I haven't seen it since. I do watch the older shows with Charlie. Charlie IS Two and a Half Men.

Yippee!! We love the new show. Now that Chuckes' new show will start soon, (I guess), maybe his fans can stop whining about the success of the show he lost by his own actions, and start baying about the how wonderful the new one is (whether it is or not). Carry on, Two and a Half Men!!

The writing on the show this year has been terrible. The storyline with Allen is absurd and an insult to anyone with an IQ in double digits.

Of course people who love Charlie Sheen will hate every replacement. That's natural. We sho don't can enjoy looking at Kutcher, even though he might not be all that nice as a person.

The problem is poor Cryer, who deserves MUCH better lines from the writers. Now it's all about loneliness and masturbation, and he doesn't get to care for his son. I feel for Jon Cryer!

Maybe they are just finishing out their contract with CBS Warner Brothers. Which would be season 10.


The show was getting very old and stale even before Sheen got himself fired.


The whole Chelsea storyline wasn't good, that was like the beginning of the end, the same old rehashed jokes. The show was very good for the first 5-6 seasons but like any show it ran it's course.


Can't blame Kutcher, Sheen would have trashed anyone who came on the show. The show isn't good the girlfriend is horrible, Jake always stoned and retro 60 hippie jokes but, they are getting paychecks.


Hey, look at Angus Jones he gets like 350k per episode and says maybe 10 words if that much. They don't care they are getting paid.


Well let's see how Sheens show is going to do. Sheen has the talent to pull it off, he has a great dry wit and good timing. Espically if he does a combo of Jane Lynche's as his shrink on 2.5 men and Bob Newhart.

Why?, Kutcher sucks, and ruined the show.

Why is Ashton getting a pay raise, the ratings went down. They are running this business like the Wall Street Investors. Raises with no performance results.

15 million? barely 11 at best, the show is renewed because Chuck Lorre refuses to concede defeat, maybe he is paying Kutcher from his pocket

It was so unreal to see Charlie as Playboy from that show that I'm glad he is gone. I started to watch it
again last season... Love it...I'm glad is back for the
10th season ... Go boys !
