CBS Likely To Renegotiate Two And A Half Men For Less $$$ Without Charlie Sheen

When it comes down to it, the one thing that concerns studio execs, producers and actors alike is money. With Charlie Sheen out of the picture for good, Warner Bros. has to start thinking about the future of Two and A Half Men and what it will cost them to continue.

The good news is, sources report that it cost about $4 million to put one episode of the show on CBS. However, almost half of that went to Charlie Sheen, between his exorbitant salary and royalties for the reruns. So now, roughly $2 million is back in the studios pockets, meaning it could be financially possible to keep the show rolling with the right star at the right price.

However, they won't just be saving money by tossing Charlie - they risk losing money as well. Contracts with other syndication networks will have to be reworked if the show forges ahead with a new lead star, as Charlie was a draw for many advertisers and audiences. So, CBS will have to face renegotiations with buyers of the reruns to make it fiscally fair for them.

It's a damned if you do, damned if you don't type of situation, but the point is a decision needs to be made and fast.

So, what's it going to be, WB?

    I like 2 and a half men… I don't think it will be too hard to find a replacement who can play a womanizing oversexed horn ball… or they can do more with Allan the mom, hilda (or whatever the maids name is) and the kid.. they are hilarious anyway… I think Charlie was mildly entertaining on the show… but I think his supporting cast is what really made the show.

    There are many ways to get around having Charlie Harper (Sheen). Bring on an unknown half-brother that lives in Florida that Evelyn never shared about - tie that in with Alan and Jake moving in and freeloading of this new brother/uncle while Jake attends college. Would have to be a A-lister to play uncle, like Nicolas Cage or Andy Garcia for the Miami story ties. Add a hot Hispanic chick as a cousin who is wild.

    Look. I work for a living and work with stupid and batshit crazy people every day and none of them get fired. Hell… Libya and the US have dumbass crazy people running them and no one can seem to fire them either.

    Stupid move to have the show without Sheen. As best I can tell, he came to work every day and was professional. What he does in his free time is between he and God (and hookers).

    They should kill off Charlie while on a trip with Rose. Allan can then get a bunch of money left to him by Charlie. WIN WIN.



  6. 6

    DON'T BOTHER! I have watched the show sinse the beginning and there is NO SHOW WITHOUT CHARLIE as far as I'm concerned.



  7. 7

    This is a AWFUL show…how do U idiots watch this trash

    Re: PROF.Buk0wski ENGLISH PROF OF THE CENTU – THANK YOU!!!! People act like he woke up yesterday and just started doing drugs! HES BEEN DOING THEM BEFORE SEASON 1!!! They knew what they were getting in to when they gave him the 2 mil

    Seems like a spinoff is a better solution.



  10. 10

    this show will not go on without sheen…….if he's not going to be part of it, just can it.



  11. 11

    I don't think it would be good with no Charlie, I mean he IS Charlie and Charlie is the show.



  12. 12

    Charlie Sheen might need a lot of help right now, and the show unfortunately had grounds to fire him, BUT, he is irreplacable! If you've seen the show you know that without him there is no show, the other actors are very talented but without Charlie they have nothing

    They should do a spin off.. because they don't seem to have anyone in mind that really fits the part. Charlie Sheen- if you wanted to make Sheens Corner work… you need some material– since you don't have it, ask listeners/watchers to send in their question and you will answer on air.. or they can send you a problem they've had and how they handled it, you can tell them if it's 'winning' or suggest a better winning plan. -THEN maybe you'd have something, because as of now those rants on Sheens Corner aren't cuttin it eh… just fyi…. hit me up if you need some more ideas.

    Charlie Sheen IS Two and a Half Men. They can't do the show without him. Just like that Rules for Dating My Daughter show didn't work without John Ritter, this won't work without Charlie. Crazy or not, the show revolves around him.



  15. 15

    Face it, without Charlie, there is NO show.



  16. 16

    With the right person they can succeed. I think John Stamos is a good choice, he definately has a good base in TV and many followers from the Full House days. Also bringing a strong comedian would be helpful. Jimmy Fallon or Adam Sandler..hehe wait I got it..how about Emilio Estevez??? hehehe. I always liked him over Chalie anyhow.



  17. 17

    This show won't work without Charlie. You need a new show - a spinoff about Alan. As much as I think Sheen needs to be fired and punished…this show is not a show without him.



  18. 18

    To replace Charlie Sheen, they need a well-known actor who can do comedy and who will appeal to advertisers and audiences: how about Matt Damon?



  19. 19

    Charlie Sheen IS the show! there is no way they can continue without him the others are good because of him ,HIS reaction , to their lines (no pun intended)
    Charlie Harper and Charlie Sheen aside from the drugs were really very much alike!! so how is another actor going to add that to the role. Charlie is Charlie he can get another sit-com in a heart beat but he really should get the HELP he needs before it's too late and he od's somewhere with his "godesses' watching.



  20. 20

    Sheen is a god. This show is done for. way to go CBS



  21. 21

    there isnt a show without charlie. end it.

    What a mess! Great show! The only other actor that I could see playing his character would be the great Robert Downey Jr. but we all know that is impossible. Isn't it sad that the complete mental and physical breakdown of Charlie Sheen has become fodder for media and fans. Even worse many are perceiving him as a hero…Great role model. What a disturbing commentary on society - everyone jump on board, try to make a buck, get your 15 min. of fame or have your morning laugh at the expense of someone who is obviously dying right before our eyes. I wonder who will get the rights to telecast his final breath. I know someone has to want help but this guy just needs to be locked up to be saved. I wish Charlie Sheen health and happiness and I hope he gets well and becomes the actor we all love and the father that his beautiful children deserve.

    Wouldnt it be funny if they replaced him with the comedian Ray Romano. His voice and how he would deliver the lines would be so funny. Won't happen, but just the thought makes me laugh.



  24. 24

    They should make the most of it with out him and have certain men stand in each week. Russell Brand, Ray Romano, Justin Timberlake etc. It would be so great!



  25. 25

    This show is now going to suck…



  26. 26

    wont be the same without Charlie.

    Re: Charlie Sheen
