CBS passed along some good news for more than a dozen of their primetime shows. 18 series received renewals from the Eye today, among which are The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, NCIS, and newcomer Elementary. CBS is also moving forward with three of their popular reality series, Survivor, The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss.
Now in its 10th season, Two and a Half Men is still a ratings juggernaut for CBS, helping the network to win Thursday’s ratings each week. Now, creator Chuck Lorre and some of his merry Two and a Half Men band are putting together a new comedy project for CBS. With the success of Two and Half Men and some of the same big names involved with the half-hour project, it’s no surprise CBS' project is looking like a “top prospect.”
If the Angus T. Jones religious testimony video has resulted in anything good, it has to be the crop of spoof videos popping up online. The latest to turn Jones’s rant against Two and a Half Men into a promo for his show is Matthew Perry, who goes even further in mocking Jones than videos we’ve seen before.
Since Angus T. Jones made headlines on Monday for a religious testimony video in which he trashed the show he stars in, Two and a Half Men, we’ve been waiting to see what the response might be from producers on the show. After all, they have already fired one star from the series for making controversial remarks. There has also been the question of whether Jones even wants to continue on the show; but reports today say he does plan to stick around.
After setting off a firestorm of reports, commentary, and even a spoof with the video testimonial in which he bashed the show that made him a star, Two and a Half Men’s Angus T. Jones has issued a statement responding to the controversy. Although he doesn’t take back anything he said, he does apologize to everyone involved in the show.
After Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones’ chocking comments bashing the show and asking people not to watch it hit the web yesterday, it was only a matter of time before he was the target of satire. As it turns out, it only took a day. Today The Office star Rainn Wilson posted a video on this Facebook page spoofing the Jones’ rant.
It looks like Angus T. Jones will probably be able to avoid any sort of unpleasantries on the Two and a Half Men set after calling his hit television program “filth.” The 19-year-old actor created an outspoken religious testimonial that went viral this week that indicates the young actor cannot reconcile his belief system with the writing on the show. Luckily, the young man doesn’t need to show up on set until after the New Year.
Another Two and a Half Men star is stirring up controversy. This time it’s the youngest of the title characters, Angus T. Jones, whose religious journey seems to have led him to the conclusion that his role in the show is bad news. In a recorded testimonial for Forerunner Christian Church, Jones talks about his path to religion and his discovery that Two and a Half Men is the work of “the enemy” and that viewers should “stop watching it and filling your head with filth.”
Warner Bros. has locked in their comedy guru for another four years. Chuck Lorre has been aligned with the company for 12 years already, producing such hits as Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, and today the man has resigned for another extended period. There’s more than comedy, though, under this new deal.
Miley Cyrus is heading back to the small screen, at least for a few episodes. The singer/actress has secured herself a guest-starring role on CBS' Two and a Half Men, playing someone who grabs the attention of one of the titled "men." Spoilers ahead!
Last year, the big question concerning Two and a Half Men was focused on who would be brought in to fill the void left by Charlie Sheen. This year, we're left to wonder if the three core cast-members would sign new contracts to return to the CBS comedy series. Those hoping to see Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones return to Men may have cause to celebrate soon enough.
Things are looking good for another season of Two and a Half Men, and for the return of the star who replaced Charlie Sheen this past season, Ashton Kutcher. A new deal for Kutcher is in the works, and it sounds like things are on track. Unlike in past seasons when things have gone down to the last minute, this year it looks like the renewal announcement will be along soon.
After setting off a firestorm of angry response – mostly from females around the world including actresses, Two and A Half Men creator Lee Aronsohn issued what came across as a forced apology via Twitter today. His brief apology is unlikely to reverse the opinions of him that many women likely formed in the wake of the initial female-comedy-bashing.
Two and a Half Men’s fate is still up in the air, and based on what series co-creator Lee Aronsohn says, CBS and Warner Bros. are trying to work out a deal to keep the show up and running and still profitable. In addition to that, he shared some crass, sexist comments about some other comedies on television.
If I had to make a short list of people to play the ghost of deceased Two and a Half Men character Charlie Harper, I’m not quite sure who would top the list. But I can tell you Kathy Bates wouldn’t even cross my mind. She crossed someone’s mind however, since the Oscar-winning actress will in fact play the ghost of not-so-dearly-departed former star of the series, Charlie Sheen.
