After Friday’s announcement that Two and a Half Men would go on immediate hiatus, CBS is scrambling to fill in the gap. What this means for us viewers is Rules of Engagement, and Mike & Molly are on the move. According the The Hollywood Reporter, CBS has ordered two additional episodes of Rules and Mike to help with the scheduling issues in Charlie Sheen’s abrupt absence.
Warner Brothers Television has not yet commented on the additional shows, nor if a sub will be put in place for Sheen, but there has certainly been speculation. We have heard a lot of internet chatter, fans making their own suggestions. Here are a few:
Michael J. Fox – Why? Well, when Fox had to take leave of Spin City because of his Parkinsons, who was his replacement? Yep, Sheen. So why not throw Fox back in the mix to return the favor?
Ashton Kutcher – Fan’s explanation? On the small screen, he is appealing. On the big screen, meh, not so much.
Andrew McCarthy – My favorite suggestion… Ok so Alan is approached by an old pal (his High School nemesis actually) who is down and out. Since his brother is away for awhile, he decides he would offer him a place to stay for awhile… And the dude insists on calling him Duckie.
Seth Green – An actor, producer, cartoon character, werewolf. What can’t he do?
Betty White – Well why not. Fans think it would be a great idea since Two and a Half Men is one of the only three shows on TV she hasn’t been on. Plus, she could be just as crude really.
In the meantime, Charlie Sheen is doing his rehab time at home, rather than in a facility. CBS, Chuck Lorre, his family, and others close to Charlie believe that it’s best, and they have hired some highly trained people to help rid of his demons and get him well. His publicist has said that no more news on Charlie’s health or the state of his treatment will be revealed unless directly signed off by him.
Hopefully, however, they aren’t letting him watch TV. Kayce Jordan, you know, the “Queen of Anal” porn star he paid $30,000, just can’t zip her lip, for lack of a better term. She has supplied us all with more than a few gems about Charlie. His teeth are fake, real ones ruined by all the drug use. He wanted to start a “Porn family” in his home, having the women watch the children. (Denise Richards issued a “Tweet” letting us know that would never happen, as if that needed saying.) Sex with him lasted just about “two and a half minutes”… She’s hilarious and oh so original! (Note the sarcasm please. ) Alas, the networks and news shows keep paying her, so I guess it makes good TV for some people.
Stay tuned, I’m sure the drama isn’t over yet. While we wait, do you have a suggestion on who should sub for Sheen?
