    The few times I've sampled this show, it didn't appeal to me at all. Come to think of it, I'm not a fan of any Chuck Lorre's shows.

    Something tells me we haven't seen the last of Sheen or 2 and a half men. That show makes a ton of money and networks don't just cancel the #1 comedy on TV. I could very easily see the show coming back on in a month or two.
    During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years without ever hitting the ball. ~Mickey Mantle, 1970

    I think the writers on the show have blended the two together playing off Sheen's real life woes. Sheen's TV role has gotten a little less lovable and more harder edged lately.

    But I was talking about his real life. The dude knows how to party.

    They just canceled this seasons. It doesn't mean they aren't going to cancel the show completely.

    Apparently they have aired all the new episodes that have been produced. In the latest episode Sheen looked awful. He looked like he had been in the middle of a bender.

    They should swap in Emilio Estevez and hope no one notices.

    Yep, it'll be back next year, I'm sure.

    Re: Charlie Sheen calls bluff: CBS cancels

    Maybe it's because he's such a Reds fan -- and I don't know what this says about me -- but I found myself agreeing with a lot of what Charlie Sheen has said. Don't get me wrong, dude is clearly out of his tree, and his conspiratorial delusions (i.e. Vatican Assassins) are clearly the markings of a man losing his grip on reality, but...

    AA is kind of cultish. I know it's helped a lot of people and if it helped you or a loved one then far be it from me to denigrate that. And I doubt Charlie is cured from his addiction. BUT... he is mostly right on his criticism. AA is hardly the only option to recovery (as AA claims). AA's success rate is indeed 5%, which is about the success rate for recovering addicts across the board, with or without AA. AA does require you to submit to a higher power. Inexplicably, US courts can force people to complete AA, which is a 1st amendment issue.

    Crack isn't that bad. Well, crack is certainly bad (mmkay), but not as bad as people tend to think. It's basically no worse than powder cocaine. So, when Charlie says that people should only use crack if they can handle it, it's not as wildly crazy as people have said. If you think that people can use powder cocaine recreationally and in moderation, then the same holds true for crack. Crack and powder cocaine are the same chemically -- it's akin to the alcohol in vodka being the same as the alcohol in wine. Sure, it's perhaps a more efficient delivery method of the drug, but if crack is more addictive than powder cocaine, it is only marginally so. And yet crack use is almost universally shamed, while powder cocaine use is somewhat tolerated as acceptable (depending on your disposition, I suppose). The reason crack carries the stigma it does is mainly due to racism, IMO. And the significantly stiffer legal ramifications for crack possession vs. powder cocaine possession are a travesty and a black mark on our society (again, IMO).

    Chuck Lorre definitely sucks. If you've seen Two and A Half Men, you know this.

    Charlie Sheen is reminding me of the death spiral that Chris Farley went on, years ago. The behind the scenes part of his story was just as bad. Farley guest hosted SNL shortly before he died and you could see he was going to cause his own death. Charlie Sheen will be dead soon if he doesn't get help.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    So Charlie does post on this board, not surprising I guess.


    I thought it was kinda funny that in the interview Charlie kept using Lorre's real last name, as if that was some sort of slam. While at the same time he doesn't go by Carlos Estevez.

    CBS cannot afford to completely cancel the series I am sure Charlie and the gang will be back next year.

    I dunno, CBS is rolling in high rated shows right now, they may just get away with doing away with Chuckies show.
