Charlie Sheen Is Reprising His Famous Ferris Bueller's Day Off Cameo

17 December 2014 2:49 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Charlie Sheen sees your Ducky outfit, Jon Cryer, and raises you. Sheen is set to guest-star on an upcoming episode of the '80s-set The Goldbergs, and he's reviving his famous part from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The 1986 spot was one of Sheen's first roles, and it was a small, but very memorable cameo as a drugged-out guy who Jeanine Bueller (Jennifer Grey) meets at the police station. This time around, he encounters Erica (Hayley Orrantia), who is trying to prove that her brother, Barry, is faking sick to miss school. The episode is set to air in early 2015, and if you don't already watch The Goldbergs, you should definitely at least plan on tuning in for this. Source: ABC »

CBS Confirms Two and A Half Men End Date

7 December 2014 7:28 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher will no longer have a job starting on February 19th. CBS has confirmed that the long running Two and A Half Men will wrap up the series officially with a 1 hour episode on that day. Jon who is the only lasting original character, it will be the toughest on him. The series has suffered ever since Charlie Sheen left. While Ashton has been fun on it, CBS knew that it could not survive much longer without the main star, hence why this season was ordered to be the last. That day will also serve as a premier date for Odd Couple.

I am sad to see the longing run show end. However, I know price wise compared to the ratings does not make it worthwhile. At least they can look back and say the series ended on a high note. That is better than it »

CBS sets 'Two and a Half Men' series finale, new 'Odd Couple' premiere

5 December 2014 7:38 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We already knew that "Two and a Half Men" was shedding its mortal coil after this, it's 12th season. Now, however, we finally know when the coast will be clear for viewers to return to CBS without fear of "Two and a Half Men" episodes or promos. CBS announced on Friday (December 5) that "Two and a Half Men" will end with a one-hour series finale on Thursday, February 19 from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. The comedy, which won Jon Cryer a pair of Emmys and launched Charlie Sheen to "Anger Management," will have aired 262 episodes. [In all seriousness, critics use "Two and a Half Men" as an easy punchline and often for good reason, but the Chuck Lorre comedy has received 47 Emmy nominations and spent five consecutive seasons as TV's most-watched comedy. That is not insignificant.] The "Two and a Half Men" finale will air after the series premiere of "The Odd Couple," starring Matthew Perry »

Two and a Half Men Ending After 12 Seasons

5 December 2014 2:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After an astonishing 12 years on the air, CBS's Two and a Half Men is being cancelled. While its chances of survival were shaky following Charlie Sheen's explosive exit in 2011 in between Two and a Half Men's 8th and 9th seasons, Ashton Kutcher proved a worthy replacement. The show continued to garner an audience upwards of 10 million viewers per episode. Even when the show lost its "half" at the end of its 10th season when Angus T. Jones decided to leave (but not before begging people to stop watching), Two and a Half Men still continued to perform spectacularly for CBS. »

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.

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. »
