Two and a Half Men: Season 12 Ratings

14 November 2014 12:27 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It's the end of the line for Two and a Half Men. The show has continued to perform well for CBS but its time to say goodbye. Will the final season be a big ratings success or will the sitcom simply fade away? Stay tuned.

Two and a Half Men revolves around the lives of unlikely housemates Alan Harper (Jon Cryer) and Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher). Conchata Ferrell co-stars as Berta, their snarky maid. Recurring characters are played by Amber Tamblyn, Holland Taylor, Marin Hinkle, Ryan Stiles, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Clark Duke, and D.B. Sweeney.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh »

Exclusive Video Interview With Jon Cryer, Stephanie Szostak And Will Sasso On Hit By Lightning

1 November 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you like your romantic comedies with a good dose of black humor, then you should check out Hit by Lightning. It stars Jon Cryer as Ricky Miller, a 40-year old aspiring writer whose survival job is being a manager at Debbie’s Restaurant. He’s also a bit lonely as he’s never had much luck with women.

That all changes though when he creates an online dating profile and soon meets Danita (Stephanie Szostak), whom he is convinced is the love of his life. Things take a sudden turn, however, when Danita reveals to Ricky that she is actually married to a successful crime novelist and asks Ricky to murder him so that they can be together.

Despite Ricky’s skepticism, he agrees. But it isn’t long before he starts to wonder if Danita is telling the truth, or if there’s something else going on that she’s hiding from him. »

'Two and a Half Men's' Same Sex Marriage Proposal

31 October 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"Two and a Half Men" had its season premiere on Thursday and it ended with Walden (Ashton Kutcher) proposing to a man!

The much-hyped and headline-making storyline kicked off after Walden had a medical scare that landed him in the hospital.

The episode started with Walden, dressed as zombie Elvis and Alan (Jon Cryer) dressed as Ducky from "Pretty in Pink" (a wink, wink to his '80s John Hughes film character) getting ready to meet up with a few of Walden’s lady friends. It appeared to be another wild Halloween night until Walden began having chest pains.

A few days ago we had the chance to sit with the cast of the upcoming film "Hit by Lightning" and talk about the project.

The film follows Ricky (Jon Cryer) the loneliest man in North America, who finally meets the perfect woman, Danita (Stephanie Szostak), but there's one catch. She's married and wants him to kill her husband. Even though quirky and shy fast food manager Ricky has never ever killed a spider, he agrees to do it with the help of his best friend and accountant, Seth (Will Sasso) and the comedy ensues from there.

Check out our Exclusive interview with the cast below.

Jon Cryer on 'Two and a Half Men' gay wedding controversy: It 'surprised us'

30 October 2014 6:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men” gay marriage controversy: "Hopefully we haven't done something too terrible in taste” "For us it was just a fun, silly idea that some people were taking kind of seriously, so that sort of surprised us,” says Cryer of the plan for Alan to marry Ashton Kutcher’s character. "But at the same time I understand. This is a time when our nation is changing so much. And let's remember, same-sex adoption is still illegal in some states so I can see why people would be nervous about it. And as long as the fight is still being fought they have a right to be sensitive about it.” Plus: Jon Cryer recalls when Charlie Sheen began going crazy on “Men,” Sheen says "I just think it makes sense” for him to return to “Men,” Cryer recalls being labeled “The Show Killer,” and Conchata Ferrell recalls auditioning for Berta. »

Ashton Kutcher has got this daddyhood thing down. Or things are going pretty well so far, at least, since he and Mila Kunis welcomed daughter Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher exactly one month ago.

You feel like you're like a baby whisperer." Kutcher and Kunis may be on the tired side, but they wouldn't have it any »

Ashton Kutcher: I Stopped Listening To Charlie Sheen

29 October 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ashton Kutcher can't be bothered with what his predecessor has to say.

Charlie Sheen is showing interest in returning to Two and a Half Men for the series finale, but the show's current star, Ashton Kutcher, could care less.

News: Why Charlie Sheen Tipped a Waiter $1,000

"I just stopped listening to things that Charlie Sheen says," the 36-year-old actor admitted on Conan O'Brien's Tuesday show. "Charlie Sheen has become like a parent on Charlie Brown to me.”

That being said, he's still grateful that he was chosen to replace Sheen after he was fired from the CBS sitcom. "I just keep saying thank you for the great job," Kutcher quipped. "I've got an awesome job and it's thanks to you not having it anymore. I'm just gonna keep going to work and collecting the check. So whatever."

Hit by Lightning Is a Black Comedy Without Blackness or Comedy

28 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Maybe the most interesting thing about Hit by Lightning is that the only two women with speaking roles have separate, faintly unplaceable European accents. Unfortunately, they never share a scene. Through an Internet dating service, Ricky Miller (Jon Cryer), a middle-aged human cringe who manages a chain restaurant, meets Danita (Stephanie Szostak), the embodiment of a moronic, misogynist stereotype — "You're, like, Maxim-hot and you don't even know it," says Ricky. She can actually cite Steve Buscemi films Reservoir Dogs and Fargo, which is supposedly remarkable, making her the dream girlfriend of frat dudes from 1996 and also probably Kevin Smith and definitely Ricky. "Put on Espn and text me when you hear the hockey scores," she tells him, a »
