    I gave it a try back in 2006, hate it. Worst collection of silly humor ever.

    The renewal is no surprise, though. First, it’s a major cash-cow, one of the highest rated shows on TV; second, I guess that even if CBS wanted to end it (highly doubtful), they had no other comedy to put in that timespot (unless they wanted to kill it).

    exclusive shocking news from CBS:

    Martin Lawrence comedy is not going forward

    Conan super fun night comedy is OUT too!

    jerry bruckheimer drama OUT too!

    Only 1 or 2 new sitcoms from CBS.

    What the hell is going on with CBS??????

    I love Martin L! Its CBS mistake real mistake!

    When was the last time a comedy ran beyond 10 seasons?

    How long can / will / should Two and A Half Men go?

  • David Howell

    So Ashton Kutcher got his squinty-jillion dollar contract, then.

    You can’t argue with the numbers even if you despair at them – one of the most popular shows in television.

  • Justin121

    Seasons 1-5 good, Sheen Vs. Kuthcer: 1-0

    Seasons 6-8 no good, Sheen Vs. Kuthcer: 0-0

    Season 9 good, Sheen Vs. Kuthcer: 0-1

    until they changed the furniture

    Sheen Vs. Kuthcer: 1-1


  • Survivor Fan

    I would say 12 seasons for 2.5 Men, ending in 2015.

  • manhf

    i still watch this show even if charlie isnt in it, a true fan of two and a half men will continue watching it, if you stop watching it because charlie is gone your not a two and a half men fan but a charlie sheen fan

  • Kay

    Get rid of Ashton’s girl friend on the show – she has a real problem – with her attitude – bring back Sheen – even as a ghost – with Bates as the ghost of Charlie – is better than the show with Ashton – the best people are not to be seen lately – the mother – the housekeeper – jake – and of course Rose – the show really lacks that special somthing that it had before – and they are making Alan – a real scumbag jerk – well I have had my say –

  • Simon

    Cheers and Frasier lasted 11 Seasons.

  • Marcus

    Everybody talking to Charlie back, but he wanted to leave, did not respect any fan of the series. For the series he would have finished in 8th temporada.Sou fan of Charlie, but he made many wrong choices.

  • Montecore

    The same people who watch this show are probably the same ones who keep maury and jerry springer on the air and look forward to shows like the kardasians.

  • Dixie

    Wow….this show has gotten so bad I can barely watch it anymore…loved the series when Sheen was on….if I miss it, I seldom even watch it on TiVo. The girlfriend of Waldon is so annoying, which is the main reason I dislike the show now. Angus’roll has been diminished to nothing more than a pothead with a rare appearance. Thank God for Berta is all I got to say!

  • Dixie

    one more thing…..I agree with bringing Kathy Bates back as the ghost of Charlie….she did a great job, and as far as I’m concerned, that was the best episode of the entire year!

  • ToXiX

    When Zoey departs, the show will be good again.. That is my MAIN complaint about Season 9, and I don’t like what they did with Alan either but Its not too impossible he grew to be this much of a leech. After Season 8, Alan was ruined for the most part anyway.

  • qwerty

    I wonder when they’ll change the name of the show to “Three Men”!

  • Aizhan

    I love the show. And I’m glad we can have another season :)

  • mark

    Why do all you people who dont like the show follow links to check if its being renewed?? Surely if you dont like it then you would not watch it and hence you would NOT care if it was being renewed or not!! Think about it then go somewhere and spend your time doing some constructive critisim,.
    Anyway, the shows not bad,Alans character has now become a bit of a caricature of itself, which is a shame.Ashtons not bad, and you have to thank us english for providing the sexy british totty(Zoe). Admitedly not as good as the sheen years, but you cant have it all eh.Lets hope series 10 improves and isnt soley based on Alan not moving out!!! TTFN.

  • Ranger-X

    This just re-affirms my belief that we are truly becoming the movie “Idiocracy”. Soon the number one Show/movie will be “ass”….
