Two and A Half-Men Ends Without Charlie Sheen

20 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Charlie Sheen did not see Two and a Half-Men end the way he wanted. In fact, it pretty much ended without the legit, former star of the show. Thus Chuck Lorre found himself having to explain why the tiger blood king did not end up on it even after both sides claimed they wanted t. As expected, it appears that Chuck could not agree with Charlie. Here is what he said about their disagreement on his supposed guest appearance.

Our idea was to have him walk up to the front door in the last scene, ring the doorbell, then turn, look directly into the camera and go off on a maniacal rant about the dangers of drug abuse, He would then explain that these dangers only applied to average people. That he was far from average. He was a ninja warrior from Mars. He was invincible. … And then we would drop a piano on him. »

Here's the Explanation Behind Two and Half Men's Bizarre Ending

20 February 2015 11:32 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In case you missed it, this week marked the series finale of Two and a Half Men, and while the stars were reminiscing about their time on the long-running CBS hit, the big question on everyone's mind was whether original star Charlie Sheen would come back. Well, spoiler alert: he did and he didn't. Charlie the character was revealed as actually being alive, despite being killed off on an earlier season, and when he finally comes back to reveal himself to Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Alan (Jon Cryer), we see a stand-in for Sheen approach the door - then get a piano dropped on him. As if that weren't a weird enough way to close out the show or address the controversy with Sheen, the final frame then shows series creator Chuck Lorre, who gives Sheen's famous catchphrase, "Winning," then has a piano dropped on him too. Watch that last »

Mila Kunis Makes a Yogurt Run as Ashton Kutcher Marks a Big Milestone

20 February 2015 10:55 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Mila Kunis stepped out to grab a snack at Go Greek Yogurt in La on Thursday. The actress wore a silky blue top and jeans and kept her hair covered up in a cute cloche hat. Mila was decidedly more dressed down than the last time we saw her; earlier this month, she got dolled up for the red carpet premiere of her latest movie, Jupiter Ascending, and was joined at the event by costars Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne. Mila made the talk-show rounds to promote the film, but she has since been laying pretty low - she talked a lot about her baby daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, during her press appearances, and Wyatt's dad, Ashton Kutcher, just wrapped up a huge job of his own. The series finale of Two and a Half Men, which Ashton joined in 2011, aired this week, and the actor shared a sweet photo and »

Charlie Sheen -- Dead Again in 'Two and a Half Men' Finale

20 February 2015 3:50 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Chuck Lorre and the folks at "Two and a Half Men" used the finale to rip on Charlie Sheen all episode long … and then gruesomely kill him … all because Charlie wouldn't do as he was told. Long story short, the show set up a scenario where Charlie's character wasn't really dead. In the final scene, a man who looks like Charlie (seen only from behind) shows up at the house ... but is killed by a falling piano, »

'Two and a Half Men' finale recap - The Truth About Charlie

19 February 2015 11:21 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

CBS' "Two and a Half Men" ended on Thursday (February 19) night after 12 seasons and a whopping 262 episodes. It was a show that relied heavily on puns and hack dirty jokes, a sitcom that went on far too long -- between five years and 12 years, depending on who you ask -- and ground a premise that was almost impossible to logically justify into the ground. But don't take my word for it.  Ask "Two and a Half Men"! Thursday's two-part "Of Course He's Dead" finale may not have been great art, but it was an amusingly self-conscious conclusion built around an unfulfilled promise that at least punished the principals responsible for that unfulfilled promise. And if a finale featuring two people crushed by pianos isn't love, it'll have to do until the real thing comes along. [In other news, the series finale of "Parks and Recreation" is less than a week away and I somehow assume it will be the real thing. »

Producer: Charlie Sheen Was Offered a Cameo in Two and A Half Men Finale

Charlie Sheen had his chance. But the actor, who infamously starred in - and flamed out of - Two And a Half Men, decided to skip Thursday night's finale. As he typically does, Executive Producer Chuck Lorre got the last word, explaining in his end-of-show vanity card how the negotiations played out:"I know a lot of you might be disappointed that you didn't get to see Charlie Sheen in tonight's finale.

‘Two and a Half Men': Chuck Lorre Talks Meta Finale, Charlie Sheen and Angus T. Jones

19 February 2015 10:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As Chuck Lorre saw it, there was simply no getting around the shadow that Charlie Sheen cast on the “Two and a Half Men” finale. So they decided to go for it in the biggest, ballsiest and at times most bizarre ways they could think of to bring some closure to things that happened on and off the screen.

And yes, Lorre assures that he meant what he wrote in his final “Men” vanity card. Sheen, who was fired in 2011 after savaging the show and Lorre in a spectacularly public meltdown, rejected an offer to make an appearance at the end of the episode.

On Thursday evening, as the hourlong swan song of “Men” aired in most of the country, Lorre was busy working on a new episode of his latest CBS comedy, “Mom.” Lorre spoke with Variety as he drove home from the Warner Bros. lot about the unconventional »

Two and a Half Men Finale: Did Charlie Sheen Show Up?

19 February 2015 8:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sorry, Charlie. Despite publicly saying he'd love to make a guest cameo on Two And a Half Men during its final season (not to mention promos teasing a return), Charlie Sheen didn't make it to Men's series finale on Thursday night. (However, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Christian Slater and John Stamos all made sweet cameos!) The show kicked off by alluding to the fact that Charlie Harper (Sheen) never actually died four years ago - there was no death certificate! No one saw the body! Crazy Rose (Melanie Lynskey) was keeping someone alive in a pit in her basement! And as it turned out, »

'Two and a Half Men' Boss Explains the Surprising Series Finale Twist

19 February 2015 7:46 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead from Thursday’s series finale of Two and a Half Men.]

Looks like things are still chilly between Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen.

The Two and a Half Men creator explained why Sheen, who famously exited the CBS sitcom in 2011 following a public feud with Lorre, didn’t make a cameo in the show’s final episode in his final vanity card for the show following Thursday’s one-hour episode.

Pics: Behind the Scenes of the Hit CBS Comedy 'Two and a Half Men'

In the episode, it was revealed that Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper, was alive and focused on his whereabouts. The final moment showed the back of a Sheen lookalike approaching the front steps of the house Charlie Harper used to live, before a baby grand piano was dropped on his head. A moment later, Lorre looked into the camera with a smile and dropped Sheen’s famous catchphrase, “Winning.”

Two and a Half Men Series Finale: Who Came Back and How Did It All End?

19 February 2015 7:45 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Gonna be honest, that was fun. If you guessed that Charlie Harper, television's most infamous asshole, was never actually hit by a train in France, you would be sorely correct. He's actually been in a pit in Rose's (Melanie Lynskey) basement in Sherman Oaks this entire time, plotting an eventual escape via a bowling shirt rope and an open window in order to exact revenge on Alan (Jon Cryer) and Walden (Ashton Kutcher) for moving on without him. Part of his revenge involved dividing his two and a half million dollar music royalties up among those closest to him, minus Alan, but including Charlie's daughter Jenny (Amber Tamblyn), his ex Chelsea (Jennifer Taylor), and…his nephew Jake (Angus T. »

TV Review: ‘Two and a Half Men’ Finale Laughs All the Way to the Bank (Spoilers)

19 February 2015 7:42 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Charlie Sheen might be kind of a jerk, but after his very public meltdown, “Two and a Half Men” discovered it couldn’t get by without him any better than it could live with him. So despite the hoopla that surrounded signing Ashton Kutcher, the series has been pretty much running on creative fumes since 2011, making its finale – after 12 hugely profitable seasons – feel more overdue than nostalgic.

In what can only be called a bizarre turn, satirizing that unflattering appraisal became the spine of the program’s one-hour series finale, an episode that owed as much to the Marx brothers, in tone, as to the past 12 years of the CBS series. Throughout the hour (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), the message came through loud and clear that while many have derided “Men” as a silly, lowbrow sitcom, hey, we’re laughing all the way to the bank over here. »

'Two and a Half Men' Series Finale: Did Charlie Sheen Show Up?

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

News: 'Two and a Half Men' Boss Explains the Surprising Series Finale Twist

The Two and a Half Men series finale centered around the potential return of Charlie Sheen’s character Charlie Harper, but ultimately, the controversial star never actually made an appearance.

The episode kicked off with the surprising reveal that Sheen's character wasn’t actually killed by a train four years earlier, but rather was being kept in a basement pit, Silence of the Lambs-style, by his stalker Rose (Melanie Lynskey).

After Charlie's escape from the pit, he claims his backed royalties (conveniently, $2.5 million) and begins sending massive checks to his spurned lovers, friends and family, including Charlie’s illegitimate daughter (Amber Tamblyn) and nephew Jake (Angus T. Jones, who returned to the show for a cameo). The only characters close to Charlie who don’t receive checks are his brother Alan (Jon Cryer) and new houseguest Walden (Ashton Kutcher) whom »

What Ashton, Jon, and Even Charlie Are Saying About the End of Two and a Half Men

19 February 2015 7:35 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After 12 seasons, Two and a Half Men is about to air its final episode ever on Thursday night. Jon Cryer has been especially sentimental about the end of the show, which makes sense, given that he's been on 260 episodes of it. Ashton Kutcher took to Facebook to explain his feelings about the series, and - shocker - former star Charlie Sheen even had a backhanded tweet about it. Read what everyone is saying below. »

For the record, Thursday’s Two and a Half Men series finale did not end the way Charlie Sheen wanted.

Following the sitcom’s hour-long sendoff — which featured surprise cameos by the likes of John Stamos, Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Men co-star Angus T. Jones — creator Chuck Lorre shared a surprise message with fans, explaining why that final scene (in which we saw Charlie, from behind, killed by a falling piano) happened the way it did.

'Two and a Half Men' Stars and Creator Talk 'Undignified' Goodbye

19 February 2015 4:22 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Two and a Half Men ends its 12-season run Thursday and stars Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher as well as creator Chuck Lorre dished to Et about the CBS sitcom's final bow.

Video: Will Charlie Sheen Return for the Two and a Half Men Finale?

"We're not a sentimental show," Cryer told Et. "Stuff will happen on the show that has never happened before."

"The show has never been a dignified or particularly appropriate show and it will go out that way -- undignified and inappropriate," Lorre promised.

"I think the last show is not afraid of making fun of itself," Kutcher said. "It's like painfully honest."

News: Charlie Sheen Would "Love" to Be in Men Finale

It's still unknown whether or not former star Charlie Sheen will make an appearance in the finale. The actor seemed up for the task when he talked to Et in December, saying, "If they want me there, great. If not »

Watch: ‘Two and a Half Men’ ‘Was an Incredible Experience,’ Says Chuck Lorre

19 February 2015 10:40 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After 12 seasons on CBS, “Two and a Half Men” will air its final episode Thursday night. In a new video, the cast and creator take a walk down memory lane.

“It may take a while for this to sink in,” said executive producer Chuck Lorre about the show ending. “This has been part of my life, for good and bad, for a long time.”

When the show premiered in 2003, it starred Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. In 2011, in the midst of scandal, Sheen’s character was killed off and Ashton Kutcher joined the cast.

“It was the perfect storm for casting,” said Lorre. “Eight years later, we got to start over again.”

The title of the finale is “Of Course He’s Dead — Part One and Part Two,” insinuating that Charlie Harper (Sheen), who was killed off in the season-nine premiere, could somehow make an appearance.
