CBS pulls the plug on the sitcom after Charlie Sheen's latest rant.
February 24, 2011
CBS has halted production on hit comedy 'Two and a Half Men' for the rest of the season. This news comes just hours after star Charlie Sheen called a radio station to give them his thoughts on his bosses at the show. Said the actor, "I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show and all that and so I'm just sort of seeing if they're telling the truth or not."
In a statement issued late Thursday, the network had this to say on the matter: "Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of 'Two and a Half Men' for the remainder of the season."
