CBS Honcho

Angus Outburst Is NOTHING

Compared to Sheen's

Damage control on Angus T. Jones' vitriolic outburst against "Two and a Half Men" was a walk in the park ... at least in comparison to Charlie Sheen's epic meltdown last year -- so says CBS honcho Les Moonves.

Moonves sat down with the Wallstreet Journal to discuss Angus' infamous YouTube video -- in which the 19-year-old calls "Two and a Half Men" filth and urges people not to watch it. Angus has since semi-apologized.

But no matter how big of a mess Angus made, nothing will ever compare to Sheen's legendary crusade against "Men" and its creator Chuck Lorre last year -- Moonves says, "I don’t think [the Angus situation has] been quite resolved, but after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake."

Still, Moonves says the network hasn't decided whether to fire Angus -- whom he referred to as “that kid on 'Two And A Half Men' who’s getting paid $300,000 per episode to talk bad about me.”

Charlie was fired from the show last March ... but bounced back after signing ANOTHER huge contract to star in "Anger Management."

There's nothing worse than a 40 something man who runs around screaming " Sex, Drugs and Rock and roll"...... for his own reckless life. Sheen's outburst was only about Sheen and Sheen doing drugs and not being monitored. It IS Sheen's fault that 2.5 men went downhill.
People are getting tired of Hollywood rewarding bad behavior while mocking those with morals.
Angus is just a young naive kid who meant well, his concern for society about the influence of his show. The show is dead this season anyways so spanking the kid does no good.

I used to be a Sheen fan but no more. I will stick with Papa Sheen and Emilio.

I admire Angus T Jones. I know that it takes courage to make a moral stand like he did. Isn't interesting how maturely he acted and how immaturely his older co-star acted?

Angus just shot himself in the foot, careerwise. Yet, curiously, Doucheton Kutcher is obscenely rich. Go figure.
