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.

Ratings for Two and a half men are up 45% in Canada. My family watch the show including the old episodes with Charlie. we don' t have a problem with Aston but the writing isn't very good. Personally, I can't stand the English woman or Alan's girlfriend and they should make better use of Alan, Bertha, Herb and Rose. Too much emphasis on Walden.

this is still a really good show but they should have kept Charlie sheen. It makes me really mad when they change actors or actresses on a show

What a joke. They must be short on ideas for new shows in America for this pile of rubbish to be renewed for another season. This means More woody acting from Kutcher, more C-grade acting from John Cryer and the same old stale farts jokes from the fat kid....The show is crap without Sir Charles Sheen....Winning.

This show has well and truly JUMPED THE SHARK. I can't figure it out. Whilst America is almost broke, there's still money in the kitty to pay these fools. What about the homeless, what about the blue collar workers who lost their jobs, what about the kids that can't afford to take lunch to school...it just doesn't add up.

I don't understand why people are so against the show now. Sure, it may not be the same without Sheen but it isn't terrible.

I can't wait to see the new season :)

If Wikipedia is to be believed, the show has approx. 3 mill. viewers less per episode now, compared to the last Charlie Sheen season, which is much but not fatal. Numbers have gone down. I would guess this is due to sloppy writing, more than anything else. Alan is nothing but pathetic at the moment, and Jake is completely neglected by his mother, father AND writers. Even though the series is founded on bad taste and cruelty, there must be some heart in it, and right now Walden is the only one who occasionally shows a heart. The series could be crazy but still charming, but it really isn't.


Make an effort, guys. I like watching Kutcher, but I cringe with embarrassment at the plight of everyone else.

I'm glad the steaming pile of s**t is renewed simply because Charlie Sheen will rub Chuck Lorre's nose in Chuck's own s**t each and every week in the ratings! Go, Charlie and Anger Management on FX, June 28th!!!

If you do some research than u can see following:
Season 8 (with Charlie Sheen) had 14 million viewers for every episode.
Season 9 (without Charlie) had 2 million viewers for every episode.
(Statictis involves only USA)

Cant say

"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."

is true

Chuck Lorre is a dumb ass. Anger management will take his dumb asss show right down the drain. The ratings are coming in from the gay's supporters.
