Two and a Half Men is one of the best comedies I have ever seen on TV. I am also a big Charlie Sheen fan. The dude has some serious comedy skillz. Over the last few weeks, we have heard all kinds of dumb shit going on with Sheen and the people who produce the hit show. I ain’t takin’ sides in this dispute between dumbasses, but it’s not like anybody didn’t already know that Sheen marches to the beat of a different drum. Hell, the guy’s been a “spirited” man for quite some time now. If the dumbasses at CBS thought anything other than ,”Gee, Charlie isn’t exactly a normal guy”, then I give them too much credit for being mere dumbasses. They are fucking stoopid as hell. Let me splain.
Sheen was fired by Warner Brothers for having a a drug induced orgy with a couple of Playboy bunnies, hookers or some such shit. In turn, Charlie was nice enough to file a $100 million lawsuit against WB and the show’s producer, Chuck “Don’t Call Me Peter” Lorre. Now the President of CBS, Les Moonves, wants everybody to play nice and resume production on the show ASAP. CBS and Warner Brothers are dumbasses of the highest order here. They fire the guy, call him everything but a child of God and now they wanna make nice? Sheen played these dumbasses like Charlie Daniels plays a fiddle. Sheen is their meal ticket and he knows and they know it, too. If Sheen refuses to go back to the show, there goes dozens of jobs of the crew from the Director all the way down to whoever brings the coffee when called upon. Sheen has stated publicly that he feels the crew should be better compensated for their work. If he bolts, it’s AMF* to all those people. Then CBS, Warner Brothers and the show’s sponsors lose millions of dollars of income because Sheen is the fuel in the engine that is Two and a Half Men. No Sheen, no show. End. Of. Story. Dumbasses.
I have a feeling it will all come out in the wash because May is getting closer and closer. Why is that such a big deal? may is sweeps month where a show’s ratings have an impact on the price of ads that run on the show. Remember, we’re not talking about milk money here. We’re talking millions and millions of dollars. Trust me, there will be a reconciliation soon. And when Sheen returns, CBS and Warner Brothers will look like exactly what they are…..dumbasses.
