    Busey on Two and a Half Men? Brilliant!

  2. Nick says:

    Am I the only one crazy enough to think Busey was going to be on “Mad Men” when Megan wrote “Men” in the title, lol …. ? :D

  3. What?!? says:

    I thought he was talking about another Cougar Town cameo. When I saw Busey I saw it as Busy Phillips. :D

    This show reeks of desperation. CBS please pull the plug on this farce of a show. Your done punishing Sheen now quit punishing the loyal viewers with this putrid remake of a once grand and hilarious show. RIP 2 and Half Men
