CBS pulls plug on Two and a Half Men’s season after Sheen rant
Feb 24, 2011 by Ian Evans
Charlie Sheen’s radio rant on The Alex Jones Show has led CBS to shelve the remainder of Two and a Half Men’s season.
CBS released a statement saying that “Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season.”
Sheen’s rant, which included attacks on Alcoholics Anonymous and claims that he’s 100% cured of his addictions — for now — also included choice words about the show’s producer, Chuck Lorre.
“That piece of s**t took money out of my pocket, my family’s pocket, and, most importantly, my second family — my crew’s pocket.” He added that Lorre is a “stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I’d never want to be like”.
Sheen’s past few months have been a mad mixture of porn stars, drugs and violent outbursts.
