CBS & WBTV's PR Nightmare: Charlie Sheen Unloads Again. Is Ninth Season Possible?

Deadline says:

I bet many Warner Bros. TV and CBS executives are having second thoughts about going into great lengths in May to bring Charlie Sheen back to Two and a Half Men for 2 more years. Over the last few weeks week, and particularly over the past 24 hours, the show's star has evolved from a nuisance and a sideshow into a full-blown PR nightmare for the network and the studio behind the hit sitcom. And there is no end in sight as Sheen continued his parade on radio shows and online gossip sites with rants against Two and a Half Men showrunner Chuck Lorre, WBTV and CBS.

Keerist - He is supremely pissed with this guy. He'd better dial it back some otherwise he may lose any future opportunities he was being considered for.

He probably doesn't even care. It's not like he needs the money.

The guy makes 1.2 million dollars per episode, how many episodes are there? Now we add in the 5 to 10 other networks airing re runs and putting more money into his pocket. Advertising he does, and interviews he gets paid to say this stuff and cause a stir?

He doesn't need another show at all, and thats the attitude that will make him capable of getting another show. If anything this all happened because another network is behind it all offering him a job.

Actually it's 1.8 million per episode and there have been (to date) 177 episodes. He isn't hurting for money let's just say that.

Even the kid on the show makes 250,000 per episode. How ridiculous is that?

My question is where the hell does that money come from? How do advertisers pay that much money. The show has no merchandise line that is that big.

BBT and all the other popular shows have shirts and other trademarks on things.

This is just crazy. He calls the show that revived his career entirely and made him rich and capable of all the things he has right now, the show that put a name on his face, complete garbage. He calls the man that not only has one award winning show, but several award winning shows a nazi? Doesnt make sense.

Obviously he wants out and is trying to escape by making everyone around him seem like the bad guy. Last time I checked the show should of been done and he should of been out of a job when he screwed up with personal things, yet who gave him the second chance? Now hes throwing that away, and will be begging for a third. Why doesnt he just go bang Lindsay Lohan and call it a night.

Am I completely against him? No im just against his tactics. Business execs will of course try to screw anyone over, thats a given. But the minute you sign that contract you agree to put up with their BS.

I don't think the show will want him back to keep the station's reputation in check. Although, after his stunt, they might get more views.
