Charlie Sheen to be replaced by John Stamos ... why not just kill the show now?
Bring back Charlie Sheen and toss that bum Chuck Lorre
Do what's best for the TV audience and CBS
The show is great. That's why I don't understand how stupid CBS and producer Chuck Lorre are. Who is Chuck Lorre anyway? I don't care. I don't turn on the show to watch Lorre. Maybe Lorre is jealous that Sheen is the real talent not only as an actor but the person who gives the show its life.
Now, they are talking about some vicious episode to bring "Two and a Half Men" back to television. They are going to have Sheen, who plays "Charlie," get in a major car accident and put him in a coma where they can laugh about him. And then, they are going to bring in John Stamos either as the lawyer who takes over Charlie's property or as a cousin to replace Sheen in the sitcom.
Are you kidding me? John Stamos? There's no equivalence in at all. The two are so different. But this isn't about doing what's best for TV viewers. It is about Chuck Lorre's ego and the fact that Charlie Sheen is so much more talented that Chuck Lorre ever was.
Gte rid of Chuck Lorre and put the show in the hands of someone who understands that this isn't about the producer's ego but rather about raw talent driving one of the most popular shows in American TV history. I miss the show. I fear Sheen's departure.
I like John Cryer. I like Angus Jones. I like Holland Taylor and especially Conchata Ferrell. I am so glad Conchata is back. It's the perfect alignment of stars int he perfect alignment of a TV comedy.
So why the heck would that loser Chuck Lorre be permitted to bring the show down?
If they move in Stamos, dump Sheen and keep Lorre, it pretty much explains everything that is wrong with CBS.
