Well Chuck Lorre must be pretty pleased with himself!
He gets to keep his show - AND isn't shelling out nearly as many dollah dollah bills as he was last year!
Now that Ashton Kutcher has officially signed on to succeed Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, the big question on everyone's minds is: will he receiving the same level of compensation as the troubled warlock?
Well, apparently, not by a long shot!
Sources close to the production have revealed that while Sheen made about $1.25 million - the much publicized $2 million was from profit participation - an episode, Kutcher will be paid somewhere in between $625,000 and $900,000!
Wow! They pretty much cut that salary right in half, didn't they?
Still - that's quite the pretty penny, especially for Kutcher! We can't imagine he's complaining!
It will be very inneresting to see how his new character is introduced - and received by audiences?
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to Ashton on the show??
