'Two and a Half Men': Art reflects Charlie Sheen's life

Excuse me. “Art.” Now that Charlie Sheen is being home-rehabbed, it’s time to check in with CBS’ Two and a Half Men. It’s the same as it ever was, but now that America’s favorite ladies man is halting production indefinitely, the self-aware jabs at Sheen’s real life seem extra poignant. Here’s 10 of ‘em from last night’s episode — and after the break, a bonus money shot entitled “The Least Accurate Depiction of the Charlie Sheen Financial Situation.” It’s so funny! READ FULL STORY

Jon Cryer on 'Conan': 'Two and a Half Men' star talks La Vida Sheen

Two and a Half Men‘s Jon Cryer visited Conan O’Brien last night, and talked about his show, his Emmy, show-tunes… Hm, what else did he discuss? Oh, yeah — Charlie Sheen. Give bonus points to Conan for waiting at least 142 seconds before bringing up Cryer’s troubled co-star, but I don’t think Cryer has a future in public relations. Check out their exchange below. Be warned, sensitive souls: It starts with a car-wreck and turns into a tad of a pornographic trainwreck (which is now the new name of my imaginary heavy-metal band). READ FULL STORY

Ricky Gervais says he will riff on Charlie Sheen during the Golden Globes monologue. Oh, you can do better than that.

On the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais revealed his game plan for Sunday’s big show: attack the wounded. “I only go for the weak or the feeble. I’m not going to go for Russell Crowe or Mickey Rourke. Mickey Rooney, maybe! Betty White — I’m not scared of her,” the Brit told DeGeneres. Heads up, Charlie Sheen. (See the video below.)

Capri Anderson's lawyer on 'GMA': Charlie Sheen 'threatened to kill her'

ABC

Capri Anderson, the adult film actress who was with Charlie Sheen last month during a disturbance at New York’s Plaza Hotel, is planning to file a criminal and civil complaint against Sheen for assault and false imprisonment. She told George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America that the Two and a Half Men star gripped her roughly around the neck while in his hotel room. A clip of the interview can be seen after the jump, as well as links to her upcoming Nightline interview with Ashleigh Banfield.

Anderson, who was to be paid $3,500 to appear at Sheen’s dinner party that night, also accused Sheen of using racial slurs and snorting a “white powdery substance.” She tells Nightline that Sheen had texted her an apology, offering her $20,000 for her silence on the events of that evening.

'Due Date': Ethan Tremblay's 'Two and a Half Men' fansite exists

two_and_a_half_menAdmit it: After seeing Due Date, you thought about Googling to see if “It’s Raining Two and a Half Men, the fansite Zach Galifianakis’ character, aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay, says he runs, exists. Let us save you the effort: It does. It doesn’t run as deep as one would expect from someone who was inspired to become a thespian after watching the show (particularly season 2), but it’s enough of a payoff for curious moviegoers. The page features one of Ethan’s headshots and two Two and a Half Men clips that may or may not be from actual episodes of the CBS comedy. That’s the beauty of Two and a Half Men, isn’t it? If you’ve seen the show or have heard how randy it is, it’s entirely possible that Charlie (Charlie Sheen) walked in on Alan (Jon Cryer) lying naked on his bed with his laptop having some “alone time.” Then again, SPOILER ALERT, they could have shot the scenes when they filmed the movie’s kicker. (Bravo, Two and a Half Men, for playing along. You should have a sense of humor when you’re TV’s most-watched sitcom.)

Update: A rep for the show has confirmed those are actual scenes from episodes.

CBS Monday nights: Bad press, good ratings?

CBS-troubleImage Credit: Michael Ansell/CBS; Greg Gayne/CBSTwo and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen, likely nude right now, is such a mess that Dr. Drew is afraid he’s going to die! Meanwhile, another CBS Monday night sitcom, Mike & Molly, is all over the news because one insecure blogger found its PDA-friendly overweight costars totally icky. CBS is having a rough week. OR IS IT?

Somehow, we don’t think Two and a Half Men will suffer any sort of ratings hit — and in the case of Mike & Molly, this sort of sympathetic press bubble can really only increase viewership. Millions of people who previously didn’t know the difference between Mike & Molly and Melissa & Joey might finally have the show on their radar. The Eye’s other Monday comedies, How I Met Your Mother and Rules of Engagement, better watch out…or find a way to get into the news. A Neil Patrick Harris-on-unicorn sex scandal could be just the ticket!

Do you think CBS’ bad press week will end up paying off in the ratings? Are you more likely to tune into something because it’s in the news, or does internet chatter turn you off? And if it’s the latter, why the heck are you on this blog, you masochist!
