Get Ready For The MaSheen! He's Coming Back To TV!

Did you miss him?

Charlie Sheen has inked a new deal with Lionsgate Television to star in a new sitcom that could possibly make him more money than ever.

He won't be getting paid the outrageous $2 million per episode that he received on Two and a Half Men, but he will getting more out of the deal when it comes to syndication. So, if the show is a hit, Charlie will basically be rolling in the dough.

And, in case you were wondering, his role will be similar to his character on Two and a Half Men, but, you guessed it, even raunchier.

By pitching the show to cable networks like TBS, Charlie will have the creative freedom that he's always desired.

An insider says:

"Networks and cable are bidding on the show right now, with TBS being the front runner.

[Lionsgate Television] has committed to ten episodes up front with the option to pick-up and produce 90 more episodes if the ratings prove to be successful. This means the sitcom could be on TV for 8 years, which is a long time! It also means that Charlie will make more money than ever before!"

And if something should happen, like Charlie having a meltdown or something (crazy thought, right??), Lionsgate wouldn't lose so much money since they'll paying less upfront.

Seems like a win-win situation for everyone.

Even though we weren't a fan of the way Charlie handled the whole Men/Chuck Lorre sitch, we will be glad to see back on TV. Having a steady job seems to keep him preoccupied, which means no more lame Tourpedos!

    Watching him would be an endorsement of his behavior. I will vote with my TV — on another channel. It will end up being like Conan. He gets the satisfaction from being on TV but will have far fewer viewers. He will get more publicity from "news" stories on the sister networks like HLN and CNN.

    if this is true—what's wrong with Lionsgate!

    That's a huge risk they're taking. Sheen is circling the bowl. I cannot believe how much he has aged in the last 6 months! His teeth are even falling out. Re: FrankieLA – Agreed - I won't endorse his behavior by watching his show. But I will support John Cryer and hope that Two and a Half Men does ok.

    Charlie's 15 minutes of fame is up. I hope his new show fails, much like he failed his fans by f*cking up and screwing up his gig on Two and a Half Men.

    Self absorbed asshole,,,,,,,,,,Do more drugs,,drink,,and die,,,,,,,,,bye bye loser…..



  7. 7

    So, you mean he'll be playing an irresponsible drunk and druggie who likes to sleep with hookers again? Goes to show just how far he can stretch his acting chops, since he's nothing like that in real life…..

    has anyone noticed how Sheeney Boy looks like a Bowery Bum on a coffee break????

    Man, get a shower, a shave, and some clothes…!



  9. 9

    He's a douche doesn't need to be on TV he needs to be locked up in a mental ward for many many years.



  10. 10

    How can he sign a binding contract when he is mentally unstable????? Seriously, how is this possible???



  11. 11

    HE IS ALSO A CHEAPSKATE. HE GAVE ONE OF HIS WHORES A CAR AND THEN TOOK IT BACK WHEN SHE LEFT. IF IT IS A GIFT, HE SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN IT BACK. AT LEAST GET HER A USED VEHICLE SO SHE HAS SOMETHING TO DRIVE.

    It's going to come down to the writing. It could do alright, depending.
    Lorre's crew's already mastered that.



  14. 14

    A tv show can't go into syndication before 6 or 7 seasons. I doubt this show will make it that far…



  15. 15

    Ugh. I knew it was too good to be true. Hes back. Yuck.

    Re: Marcus75YOW – Not necessarily, just watched that "Three's a Crowd" which was the spinoff of "Three's Company," and I believe that only lasted a season or two. Same with "Bosom Buddies."



  17. 17

    Does anyone still care about this guy?



  18. 18

    He needs good writers. Without them he's toast.

    He looks rough in that pic. :/ Looks like his age and drugs are catching up…

    Let art imitate life. If people can stomach reality shows, let's so have Charlie doing raunchier. My ears won't bleed. If they do it right, it could fly. He was underchallenged for a rock star from Mars.

    In this picture he looks like a very old man. He has aged in the last few months and not well either. It's amazing that someone who acts the way he acts and does the things that he does gets rewarded in the end. His career should be over but of course it's not. He is a loser and I can't stand him. I just feel sorry for his children. They didn't ask for him to be their father. I will not give any show or movie he is in 1 second of my time. Good luck to the new season of Two and a half men. I hope it takes off and continues to be a huge hit.

    Wow I can't believe he's still on the loose. His silence made me think the men in white coats had taken him away.
