It seems that maybe Charlie Sheen was not just crazy the last few weeks, but maybe crazy like a fox. It’s rumored that CBS has offered his job on Two and a Half Men back, and that negotiations are underway. Of course, this begs the question: What will happen to all those sold out Violent Torpedo of Truth tour dates?
It seems that the gravy train that is Two and a Half Men, just can’t be given up on. And without Charlie Sheen it just isn’t Two and a Half Men. Given that the shows main character basically mimics Charlie Sheen’s real life in most ways (except that he doesn’t do cocaine on the show), Two and A Half Men would die a quick death without Sheen.
Given the advertising money being lost, it’s no surprise that CBS is pushing for Sheen to come back. Advertising revenue from the show is estimated at $2.9 million per half hour episode. Now that is what I call “winning”.
Neither CBS, nor Charlie Sheen spokespeople, are commenting on these rumors as of yet.
