CBS Pulls Plug For Season On Sheen 'Two and a Half Men" (KTLA.COM)
KTLA.COM - CBS HALTS PRODUCTION FOR SEASON ON 'TWO AND A HALF MEN'
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- CBS is puling the plug on the current season of the popular sitcom "Two and Half Men," network officials announced Thursday.
CBS and Warner Brothers released a statement Thursday saying that the show, which is home to one of today's most trouble-ridden celebrities, will not be producing new shows for the remainder of the year.
"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," the statement said.
TMZ posted a story earlier today quoting Charlie Sheen challenging creator Chuck Lorre to a fight, calling him "a stupid, stupid little man and a pu**y punk that I never want to be like."
Sheen's escapades and recent stint in rehab may be to blame for the sudden halt in production.
The show had already been on hiatus since January when Sheen was admitted to rehab after allegedly hosting a party overflowing with drugs and porn stars.
