Emmy Shocker: Two and a Half Men Won't Compete For Best Comedy Series

With 16 produced and aired episodes, the eighth season of the CBS comedy Two and a Half Men is more than eligible for a best comedy series Emmy Award. But the veteran sitcom, which has been the subject of controversy surrounding now-former star Charlie Sheen, won’t be in the running.

A source at the show’s producer Warner Bros. TV confirmed that Two and a Half Men was not submitted for best comedy. According to the insider, the feeling was that, given all of the off screen drama, Men should not be submitted for consideration in the best comedy series category.

Meanwhile, it’s still unclear if Sheen himself will be part of this year’s Emmy race.
