Well, this did not take very long at all. Only a matter of eight days after Miley Cyrus set “Two and a Half Men” on fire (and also boosted the show’s ratings by a pretty sizable margin), we now know that the singer and former “Hannah Montana” star is going to be back on the CBS sitcom sooner rather than later.
So how soon are we talking about here? According to a new report from Entertainment Weekly, Miley’s next appearance will be coming on Thursday, November 8, which is just thirteen short days away. During her first visit to the show, her character of Missi quickly took a liking to Jake after Walden grew uncomfortable being around her after she tried to set him up with her mom. However, she also had a bit of a tragic ending as she broke Jake’s heart with the revelation that she had another relationship back home that she was going to give a try. Does this return mean that she is open to trying to work things out now with Jake? It’s possible.
If nothing else, one of the real reasons why Miley’s Missi was so popular on the show the first time around was because of her humor more so than any particular relationship. She was free-spirited, opinionated, and she never shut up about anything. Considering that Jake is so laid-back and never really gets too worked up, watching these two interact really made for what was the perfect pairing for the show.
Even though “Two and a Half Men” Thursday night brought back the return of another character in Rose, the ratings still fell compared to where they were with Miley in a prominent role. With that in mind, it’s fair to say that this move was dictated by the public just as much as any desire to get her back creatively.
