Two and a Half Men, CBS Bosses Break Silence on Charlie Sheen

Get More: Controversy, News

While Charlie Sheen continues his Total Career Destruction world tour, the Powers That Be over at CBS and Two and a Half Men have remained relatively mum — until now.

While speaking at an investor conference in San Francisco Tuesday, CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves — who has been called out by name in several of Sheen’s televised rants — made his first public comments on the now infamous downfall of TV’s top sitcom.

Charlie Sheen Wants CBS to Apologize ‘While Licking My Feet’

“Short term, it’s actually financially a gainer for us,” Moonves mused, referring to the decision to scrap the remaining eight episodes of Men‘s season while airing repeats — which are actually drawing solid ratings for the network.

“I’m not saying long term I want this to go on, or it’s great,” added Moonves. “Going down the road, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I hope it’s back. We’ll see.”

Of course, Sheen’s erratic behavior and media blitz was addressed as well, and Moonves did so with class and just a touch of humor.

“He’s on the air quite a bit these days,” he laughed. “I wish he would have worked this hard to promote himself for an Emmy.”

CBS Shuts Down Production on Men, Citing Charlie Sheen’s ‘Conduct’

Meanwhile, Men showrunner Chuck Lorre, whose episode-ending vanity cards fueled Sheen’s public outrage, has written another anecdote, which seemingly addresses current events.

In a vanity card closing CBS’ Mike & Molly Monday night, Lorre wrote:

“I understand that I’m under a lot of pressure to respond to certain statements made about me recently. The following are my uncensored thoughts. I hope this will put an end to any further speculation.

I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individuation, the false feeling of being separate. In other words, I am aware, ergo I am alone. I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness. This explains the paradox of our culture, which celebrates the ego while simultaneously promoting its evisceration with drugs and alcohol. It also clarifies our deep-seated fear of monolithic, one-minded systems like communism, religious fundamentalism, zombies and invaders from Mars. Each one is a dark echo of an oceanic state of unifying transcendence from which consciousness must, by nature, flee. The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace. Or perhaps more accurately, “Screw Grace, I am so outta here!”

Questions?”

As a matter of fact, the stream-of-consciousness-style card left us with many. What message do you think Lorre was attempting to communicate? Hit the comments with your theories!

  • I’m no fan of Charlie Sheen but he is obviously a man in deep trouble and it seems his bosses could really care less about Charlie’s personal future then their bottom line. But this is Hollywood so it’s not that surprising.

    • Over the years his bosses have done many things to support him. At what point do you stop helping?

      And why are your comments directed at Hollywood. If Sheen had worked in any other industry he would have gotten much less rope to hang himself with

        • Hasn’t everyone figured out yet that having a career in the Television or Movie industries is like working for Drug Dealers. They don’t care what they are selling as long as you are buying. It’s like Valley of the Dolls. I love Charlie Sheen right now for taking a stand against all these liberal left wing Douches that are selling you a show about an alcoholic Sex addict who is actually more successful than his conformist brother who is the loser of the show. Message: Being alcoholic and horny is better than being a responsible person who is married. Now how is that a good left wing liberal message. See…they’re just drug dealers posing as responsible people. Chuck Lorre is Scarface,

          Oh, and if Bree Olssen says that Sheen is okay, then Sheen is okay with me.

          • Charlie’s character is an alcoholic womanizing creep who has no empathy for anyone. His only goal is to pursue his selfish hedonistic desires, regardless of whom it hurts. Screw some bimbo and shuffle her out the door. But, because he makes more money than his brother, he’s much more succesful? And yet you stupidly suggest that the show’s producers are money-worshiping ghouls? You’ve revealed yourself to be the same. By the way, if the producers had NOT shut down production, idiots like you would be the first to say that they kept the show going at the risk of Charlie’s peril, just so they could make a buck. You can’t have it both ways, Charlie!!!

    • CBS, Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre have given Charlie incredible support in the past. His trips to rehab, his arrest for assaulting his wife, which meant he possibly would have had to go to jail during the season. Each time, everyone was willing to wait for Charlie, support him and make sure he is taking care of himself. This time Charlie botched his umpteenth chance to get his life back on track. They put the show on hold for a month so he could go back to rehab. He didn’t do rehab (stopping the abuse is not enough. He is an addict and needs therapy) and without thinking about anyone but himself, he decided he would go back to work after two weeks – except they had put everything on hold so nothing was ready for those weeks. Charlie pitched a fit and went all psycho/adonis/tiger blood on them. He is unstable and therefore a huge risk to continue to work with in this state. As long as Charlie refuses any real help, there will be no show, but don’t think that they didn’t give him a great deal of chances before this.

      • Charlie is a danger to himself and a danger to others (his kids) he should be committed. His family (yes Martin,) needs to step up and and intervene. He’ll probably hate you at first, but just show him some of his rants hes made on TV once he is sober and give him some time and he will thank you for saving his life. Otherwise; you will be burying him sooner than you think!

  • Moonves showed a lot of class and I’m glad to see that he is still leaving the door open for another season of 3 1/2 men.

    Lorre on the other hand couldn’t even stay away from his “Vanity Cards” for 1 week.After swearing off of them just last week.

    And then he writes an egotistical rant cloaked in existentialiasm.

      • Chuck was fired from Roseanne and Grace Under Fire because he indulged the star of each show so much that when it came time for a real creative difference, the star was too big and had too much precedent of getting their way for Chuck to win the argument. So when it came time for contract renewals, each star refused to re-up unless Chuck was gone. The thing is – he was usually right and they were not, but try telling that to a drug user/alcoholic/egomaniac. Chuck’s taken a lot of sh!t in the past from his stars.

Mostly I just think it is funny how mad everyone is getting at him. It’s not like he killed anyone. Come on people, Hedonism is the new Yoga.

            I just can’t believe he’s gone off the deep end so much. Hell he’s flung himself off the deep end.

    • “Charlie Sheen has a disease What’s Lorre’s excuse for acting like an idiot…” Comment by Laurel —March 1, 2011 12:29 PM UTC

      Chuck Lorre has probably had to deal with a lot of crap from Charlie Sheen over the last eight years. What he wrote on a couple of vanity cards, which are only on screen for about 1 second and are in fine print that is barely legible on my TV *IF* you bother to pause the playback to read them, was *remarkably* restrained compared to Charlie Sheen’s nonstop ranting of the last few days.

      In a lot of jobs, if you fail one drug test, random or for cause, you’re immediately FIRED. Given that Charlie Sheen’s making $2 million/ep. and now wants $3 million/ep., and all the stuff he gets away with doing, I have no sympathy for this 45 year old baby.

  • I watched the 2 1/2 Men episode with the vanity card where Chuck Lorre uses the name Chaim(sp?) Levine. So for all of Sheen’s horrible behavior lately, anti-semitism is not one of them. Just a bad attempt at humor by Sheen referencing a vanity card that most have no clue about.

    Comment by JDuro – March 1, 2011 12:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I disagree. The context in which the name Chaim was used in the vanity card, Chuck was remembering when he started questioning his faith. Chaim was the name his rabbi called him, his Hebrew name (not the name Chuck ever used outside temple). Charlie used the name while shouting out slurs. THe context was different. Charlie was trying to use it as a slur; trying to insinuate that Chuck Lorre is the stereotypical loud-mouth schyster TV producer. In THE context Charlie used the name, it WAS a racial slur, and therefore anti-semetic. You must look at intent.

      • I could not dislike Charlie Sheen more, and have HATED him since his domestic abuse… supporting victims of domestic violence has been a STRONG priority of mine since my sorority opened my eyes to this all-too-common event. It’s a cause I do everything I can to support — well, not monetarily at the moment because of unemployment, but through volunteering and donations to the resale shop at our womens’ shelter in my city. (Yeah, I had to plug the cause!) Needless to say, I have NEVER stuck up for Charlie Sheen or his sickening antics, and am surprised I’m about to say the following: I truly didn’t find his statement as anti-semetic. Perhaps I’m blind and I’m interpreting this all wrong, but I didn’t feel as though he was using Chaim Levine as an anti-semetic slur. It was certainly a slur against Chuck Lorre, but I don’t believe he was condemning Judaism. (It’s absolutely disgusting that anybody could be anti-semitic in this day and age, but I do recognize that it does happen.) His tangents and slurs are so random and terrifyingly disjointed these days, and I really don’t think he actually understands or comprehends what he is saying. Maybe it was an anti-semetic statement, but as egotistical and closed-minded as he may be, Charlie Sheen has never, to my knowledge, condemned anybody else for their lifestyle until the past several weeks. I guess what I’m trying to say is that maybe it WAS a slur and maybe he used the name in the wrong context, but he’s seriously messed up and I don’t think it was his intent… until his recent episode, Charlie Sheen has not judged people for their lifestyles or beliefs. Sheen is clearly very sick, and while I judge him for a lot of things, I can’t say it was an anti-semetic statement, simply because he’s not in his right mind. It really seems like he has NO idea what he’s saying right now. (Drug withdrawal induced psychosis, perhaps?) Had he said this during a different time or place, I would agree with you, but I can’t take anything he says at face value right now. (To be clear, I’m sickened by anti-semetic statements and never condone such a thing. I would not be sticking up for him under different circumstances. I hope this post doesn’t come off as anti-semetic because it’s certainly not my intention.)

  • I am a fan of Charlie Sheen. I grew up with him it sees. From Platoon, to Ferris Bueller and now with 2 and a Half Men. I think he has so much talent, and so much trouble with both personal addiction, perhaps bipolar and a seeming sense to want to destroy himself. I am shocked that Moonves finds ANY humor in this, and worst yet, that he would allow a show runner like Chuck Lorre to make personal and at times cruel comments at the closing credits portions of his shows. They hired a star who is on the biggest comedy on their network. A show that by CBS’s own words will make BILLIONS in world wide syndication and is STILL pulling it in on CBS in reruns. You’d think at the very least, they could show some compassion for Charlie Sheen. If he is suffering from a form of mental illness, then their childish humor and attempts to belittle him back on television makes them seem like uncaring, money making suits. What is going on with Sheen isn’t funny. Perhaps Moonves should deal with Lorre first (seems like he too needs mental help),, stop him from using his shows as a childish way to strike out at his actors, then give Sheen a call and meet with him. Sheen has asked for that. A little compassion and a whole lot more maturity goes a long way in this.

      • Drug addiction is a DISEASE
        It causes irrational behavior especially during detox and shortly thereafter.

        When someone has a disease you don’t haul them into the town square and beat them.

        Well at least CIVILIZED PEOPLE DON’T !

        And Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen are 2 different people .
        Trying to conflate them into one person so you can take the moral high ground is ridiculous.

        • If they continue to “help” him though, as some of these commenters suggest, they are also choosing to be an “enabler,” which is not what is needed either. It is not funny – it is not a joke – but they don’t have to put up with it any more just because he’s sick. He needs help, and they aren’t what he needs.

        • It is a disease. A disease he has repeatedly denied suffering from. He’s WINNING! I’ve been fortunate enough not to be involved with anyone suffering from addictions more serious than nicotine, but I’ve heard frequently, that people often have to hit rock bottom before seeking help. Maybe the time for compassion and coddling are over. If anyone is taking Charlie in the town square and beating him, it’s Charlie himself. He continues to pursue interviews and media attention, so the “beating” is public because he is making it that way.

      • Haven’t liked Charlies character for a long time. It’s too painful to see his decent into the grave. I love the show and believe it can go on without him. The other characters can carry it very successfully.
        Charlie is obviously very sick. I am a recovering alcoholic and I don’t think I have every seen someone so self destructive as him. It’s sad, but he is at deaths door if he doesn’t do something soon. Why doesn’t someone have him committed? he is definitely a danger to himself!!! And he could probably be a danger to someone else on top of that. His father should step up and do everything in his power to get him committed, and soon. He hasn’t got much time. The show and all the people it employs should not shut down…it’s way to good. It has been been on the air for at least a year without the presence of Charlie (he hasn’t really been there) The other characters have been carrying the show and him.

Chuck Lorre uses his to write whatever is on his mind, and can only be read if you pause it with your DVR. He has addressed the Sheen situation a couple of times.

  • As I have said on this site a few times, without writers the actors are just dancing monkeys. Now yes we need actors to do what the writers write BUT great writers are in much shorter supply than actors.

    If you try to tell me Sheen is anything other than a decent actor you should me medicated, hes basically playing himself so its not much of a stretch as say Jennifer Lawrence in WintersBone.

    Sheen is an egomanical douchebag and honestly I find Lorre’s vanity cards hilarious and something after this many years and this much success he deserves to be able to say what he wants…with out his brain child those actors that have had issues with his perfectionism wouldnthave had the success they had.

    • Downey also recognized that he had a problem in the first place. And he and his wife both go to therapy and meetings. Charlie Sheen has decided that he is “special” and refuses that kind of therapy. He also doesn’t believe he has a drug problem. And he hasn’t ruled out using drugs in the future- he considers them to be a great way to alleviate boredom. He surrounds himself with people that he likes precisely because they don’t “push opinions” at him- ie a household of enablers. He doesn’t want to be helped, and you can’t make much headway with someone until they ask for help.

  • Just when Sheen couldn’t look any less likable Lorre pipes-up to remind everyone he’s a detestable douche as well. And unlike Sheen, Lorre doesn’t even have a couple decent credits tucked back in the 80s – his whole career has been unwarchable while Sheen’s eeked out maybe 5 hours on legitimately entertaining product. Wish these two could burry the hatchet long enough to go on an Aaron Ralston style expedition in Utah – just without the pocket knife or the courage to cut themselves free. Maybe the poor crew could split the inheritance.

  • Chuck Lorre’s comment is so great. I love it!

    He’s essentially working in allusions to two concepts in philosophy (perhaps more). First, there is the Apollonian and Dionysian dichotomy that came to us through the Hellenic mythology of the two opposing gods or creativity. Apollo is the light bringer whose purview includes individuation, sobriety, and conscious artistic craft. Dionysus is the god of wine whose purview includes communal thought, drunkenness, and subconscious artistic inspiration. Lorre is, of course, commenting on Sheen following Dionysus even though he has lately claimed to be an adherent of Apollo.

    Second, Lorre is bringing in the Romantic concept of Idealism that holds that the perception of individuation is illusory and that we are all connected at a fundamental level–whether we name that fundamental union Brahman, God, The Force, or whatever.

    Brilliant stuff! I had no idea Chuck Lorre was a student of philosophy. What’s he doing turning out mindless television series with people like Charlie Sheen?

  • No matter what Charlie Sheen says, he is in a terrible place. He is incapable of love because he’s only human. A guy can have sex several times a day and be high almost all the time but it doesn’t work for human beings, no one is more than human. You can’t have intimacy and security and fun with your family and be off to the fleshpots with hundreds and maybe thousands of other partners. You might as well use sex toys. He’s a sad and lonely guy. Just look at his face. Does he look like a man of the world or a worried, spoiled kid. Lots of men would like his money and his freedom to do whatever he wants to do but if they had the freedom and the money, they’d do things differently with their power. They’d want to love, enjoy their children, and do a lot more than get high and have sex revved up on artificially induced libido. I wish there were a way to prevent him from bringing other people, especially kids, down with him. He’s a know nothing by choice, ruthless and cunning, but not very intelligent. He’s too old to be rehabilitated.

He makes a statment that he wants a raise from 2 mill. to 3 mill I mean come on what can they possible put him through to get that kind of a raise.If 2 million per episode is not enough to live then yeah his problems are worse than I though. The bottom line that everyone is forgetting is he put himself through these things not the network or chuck lorre.

  • How dare we judge…. People need to look in the mirror and mind our own affairs

    • WE judge because we can!!! Charlie Sheen sets himself up for it. Nobody cares to hear him pitch this fit! That’s all it is. He didn’t get his way, and is kicking and screaming like an insane child. He was an employee, not in charge. Something is wrong with his ability to cognize, to recognize his position in the world.

  • I do like the show and the entire cast. If Charlie Sheen is so high on himself and refuses to get help then if I were CBS I would just cast another actor in Charlie’s spot and let the show go on. Why should the cast and crew suffer for his destructive behavior.

  • I want to say that charlie sheen took a drug test live on tv and passed. it take at the minimum 30 days just to get pot out of your system. That says that he is on top of his game folks. he might be hangin a little since it is just like quiting nicotine but other than that. urine and blood test scores do not lie. Give credit where credit is due. WAY TO GO CHARLIE SHEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and just a reminder: there is not a single person in this world who has not had something happen in their life that they would not want others to be an audience to. LEAVE HIM TO HIS PRIVACY AND CREATIVE TALENT FOR COMEDY

    • “LEAVE HIM TO HIS PRIVACY”? You mean his “private” multi-network interviews or his million Twitter followers? PULEEZE!!!!!! He’s a trainwreck who is sprinting to destruction, and insists on doing it all publicly. It’s so sordidly amusing that Sheen has taken ownership of “WINNING!” In his mind he’s just enjoying one win after another. His goddesses are coke whores who will bolt out on him so fast,they will leave skid marks on his floor when the money/drugs run out. WINNING??? He had his kids taken from his home in front of tv cameras. WINNING???? He blew the job of a lifetime, “acting” out a role that is merely an extension of himself in real life. Thias role paid him $2 million an episode, and he blew it. WINNING??? How’s that denial working out for ya, bro? Sorry, Charlie.

    • Do you really want the truth Charlie of what Lorre is trying to say to you, Or Do you want a lie.
      In my opinion, I believe Lorry is asking if you really are an actor,
      Who is having a mental breakdown do to a personal problems with your estrange wife and drugs and booze causing you to fall from grace, Or are you just an actor creating the illusion of a mental breakdown, do to personal problem with your estrange wife and drugs,booze.
      Just to get out of your contract with the show, To pursue more,
      career avenues, and still colleting 2 mill for each episode, by sueing your bosses citing that they broke the contract. When in fact that you are not interested in doing the show anymore and you just want out, But you don’t want to lose your 2 mill an episode pay.
      So you create this big illusion, cause you don’t want to look bad,
      In the eyes of your fans and costars and crew, By just addmitting you want out, that you just don’t want to do the show any more.

      If you are really haveing that bad of a time with your personal life, I only suggest, is that you look for what really is the most important thing to you in your life. The drugs, booze, porne stars.
      Or your children. If you choose your children. Than get ride of the,
      things in your life that does not have your best intrest at heart.
      The booze , drugs. the porne stars, and friends, that are only stroking your ego to get in your pocket. Their only useing you,
      In your weakin state that your in right at this moment for their ,
      Own selfish intrest. The only ppl who have your best intrest at heart right now is, your family,children and the ppl who are trying to help you, to help yourself.

  • It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to see that Charlie is clearly not in a position or frame of mind (whatever the cause) to make good choices for himself (beyond the moment and the he feels in speaking his mind. I would like to think that the world’s interest is like mine, in that I follow the story hoping that each day his ‘demon’s’ for lack of a better term, whether he is embracing them as the world watches in astonishment, will subside out of the public eye. And if in fact they are due to an illness, addiction or if they are just in fact Charlie that he will not put himself in the position to live them out infront of the world.
    My heart goes out to him and to his family. I know first hand how painful it is to watch someone you love deeply put themselves in harms way, physically or leaving themself open to hurtful ridicule.
    We have not walked in his shoes, we do not know what it is like to survive in an industry that can and has sucked the very soul out of otherwise very decent,well meaning, healthy minded and bodied individuals. We look at him and see someone who in our eyes as we struggle financially, has it all. But it is clear he does not, even if he says that in all instances he is ‘winning’.
    I will continue to hope each day that we see a headline that Charlie is healthy….in whatever form that comes, in whatever he needs, clearly only he (and the ones closest to him) know. I hope that no one else abandons him or sits idley by afraid to step in, even if to weather the storm with him.
    My heart is with the man Charlie Sheen and his family, not the personified personality that every one expects.
    If he has caused us to laugh, if his talent as an actor has given us entertainment, we can not have become so callose that we enjoy what seems to be a time of really bad judgement and health.

  • The only thing wrong with Charlie Sheen is that fact that he believes his own B.S. Anyone that has the ability to make 2 Million dollars an episode and is dumb enough to mess that up deserves anything he gets.
    This guy is on a binge and if he crashes and burns, so be it. I bet there are a lot of has been actors and actresses that have wasted their careers on booze and drugs feeling sorry for themselves, only to wake up and get their act together when it was too late.
    We all have just one life and whether we do something productive with our lives or not is a choice we each make.
    I just wonder why it seems that people that have the most going for them or seem to not have to struggle for things, are the one most often that feel sorry for themselves.

  • What a bad role model Charlie Sheen is. I hope folks boycott the advertisers for his show. He obviously has mental issues. I am tired of no publicity being bad publicity in Hollywood.
