Even though this was pretty much a given back when Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones signed new contracts, CBS has finally made the news official — “Two and a Half Men” is going to be coming back for a tenth (and likely final) season.
Ultimately, this move does make perfect sense for everyone involved — “Men” is a huge hit in syndication, and it remains CBS’ highest-rated comedy despite dropping fast from its huge season 9 premiere this past fall (which saw the funeral for Charlie Sheen’s Charlie Harper). Plus, this gives executive producer Chuck Lorre to come up with a fitting conclusion that will hopefully at least touch on some of the roots of the show — even if it was rather different back when Sheen was dominating most of the scenes.
As for what shows will join “Men” in the Monday night lineup, stay tuned — it’s possible that CBS could move “Two Broke Girls” or “Mike & Molly” to Thursdays in an effort to launch another two-hour comedy block.
Are you happy for more “Men,” or do you still wish the show stopped with Sheen?
