The Charlie Sheen Warlock tour kicked off on the Today Show this morning with an interview between the Two and a Half Men star and NBC’s Jeff Rossen. Sheen addressed some of the huge questions surrounding the “war” he has declared against CBS and Men executive producer Chuck Lorre, including his recent self-treatment for what remains a rather ill-defined ailment. Sheen told Rossen he doesn’t remember the last time he did drugs (results of a drug test revealed on GMA this morning also indicate that he is clean), and said he has rejected the “fiction” of Alcoholics Anonymous and its “5 percent success rate.” Instead, he created the Sober Valley Lodge in his own home, he told Rossen, and wouldn’t allow AA to be any part of it. “Their primary client achieved radical success,” Sheen said of Sober Lodge (which, again, is his house). When Rossen asked if relapse was an issue, Sheen replied that relapse was only for “Fools, trolls, weak, defeated — they allowed defeat to be an option. I will not.” READ FULL STORY

Denise Richards on 'The View': 'This is Charlie's lifestyle. He makes no bones about it. It is what it is.'
The View this morning, so there wasn’t a prayer she would escape un-Sheened. When Barbara Walters broke the ice, asking about the recent difficulties of her ex-husband, Richards admitted that she wasn’t surprised by Charlie Sheen’s troubles, saying, “This is Charlie’s lifestyle. He makes no bones about it. It is what it is.” When she declined to speculate on the root cause of Sheen’s issues — suggesting politely that the ladies invite him to their show and ask him themselves — Walters attempted a different tact: What do you tell the children?Denise Richards was a guest host on
“What can you say?” Richards replied. “It’s a very difficult situation. This is something I’ve dealt with for years; this is not a new situation. There are times where his life is more colorful than others, more public than others, and as the kids get older, it’s a difficult thing. I’m learning as I go too. I have never had to deal with this, and this was a subject I had hoped to talk with my children about as they got older. But it’s hard.”

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
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
Two and a Half Men will be on the air for at least another decade — in syndication. (Time to process, and… you’re back.) The show has been renewed through 2021 by Tribune Broadcasting and Sinclair Broadcast Group, whose markets represent nearly half of the country. The show has been the top-rated comedy in syndication in both adults 25-54 and households for more than three years. Is this the Greatest Syndie Sitcom of All Time? Let’s take nominations. To be clear: We’re not talking about naming the greatest sitcom, necessarily. We’re talking about which syndicated sitcom you could (and did) watch every day at, say, 7 p.m., and never get tired of it.
I’m never home at that hour now, but a few years ago, I took a three-month leave and lived with my parents while my father went through chemo and nested in the living room recliner. Having dinner while watching Everybody Loves Raymond reruns became our ritual. We’d watch one episode on one station, then I’d flip channels, and we’d watch another. It’s a sentimental pick, but Raymond‘s got my vote. What gets yours?
Admit 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.
