Following last week’s announcement by CBS that “Two and a Half Men” will be renewed for its 11th season, Jerry Wilkes, the hardest working laugh-track operator in Hollywood, rejoiced that he’ll be gainfully employed for at least one more year. According to Wilkes, he credits his first job in showbusiness, making monkeys dance for Barnum & Bailey Circus, for providing him with the skills needed to instruct millions of American viewers each week on when to laugh at any humorless “Two and a Half Men” joke.
“I want to thank Ashton Kutcher for joining the cast and making Chuck Lorre realize how vital my laugh track is to the show,” Wilkes told Hollywood & Swine. “It’s hard work trying to trick America into thinking a sitcom’s amusing, even after it’s become so bad that two of its original stars, Charlie Sheen and Angus T. Jones, no longer »

Season 10 of "Two and a Half Men" came to an end tonight (May 9) with an episode that saw Walden (Ashton Kutcher) fall for the hot grandma (Marilu Henner) of his twentysomething girlfriend (Hilary Duff), and Jake (Angus T. Jones) ship off to Japan.
Before he left, Jake made time for some father-son bonding with Alan (Jon Cryer) and reassured Alan that he's always been a good parent: "We lived in a beach house my whole life rent free, and even after Uncle Charlie died we managed to stay there. I mean who else could have done that? ... And there were a lot of hot chicks under that roof!"
Their final scene together ended with the two enjoying a view of the Grand Canyon, and Jake letting out a massive fart. Because that's how "Two and a Half Men" rolls. (Cryer wins Emmys for this thing. Seriously.)
Whether or not Jones »
I’ve never liked Two and a Half Men, but I’ve never hated it. Among the elitist TV blogerati, the show has become a defining example of ridiculously popular claptrap: A show built on a thin all-there-in-the-title premise which has been reheating more or less the same jokes for a decade of high ratings. But watching the finale of the show’s tenth season, I found myself admiring certain elements of the Chuck Lorre man-com. I can’t think of too many shows on TV which could survive the departure of its most interesting character, but Two and a Half Men »

Cryer, who has been with "Two and a Half Men" since the show began, will now make $620,000 an episode, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Two and a Half Men" co-star Ashton Kutcher makes about $700,000 an episode and will not get a raise for Season 11. THR reports Cryer makes less than $600,000 an episode this season.
Forbes placed Cryer at seventh with $13 million on its highest-paid actors list for 2012. Kutcher was number one with $24 million.
CBS recently announced "Two and a Half Men" will return for Season 11 with both Kutcher and Cryer attached, but Angus T. Jones, the "Half" man in the show's title, will not return as a series regular. Jones is in talks to recur on the series. The 19-year-old actor made headlines in November »

So will Walden have his way with the ex Lizzie McGuire? Not exactly: He’s only got eyes for Stacy’s well-traveled and extremely attractive grandmother, played by Marilu Henner. Walden figures the only way to get to hot granny is by dating her granddaughter. Have a look:
TV finales: 10 most frustrating ever

Some, such as myself, have been wondering if Season 10 would be last season for Two and a Half Men, a show that has survived much controversy in the last couple of years. I am, of course, referring to Charlie Sheen’s firing and subsequent replacement with Ashton Kutcher. At the time, I wouldn’t have thought the series would last one more season after such a big change, let alone three. But here we are and CBS is renewing Two and a Half Men for an eleventh season and both Jon Cryer and Kutcher will be returning. I wish I could say the same for our half man, Angus T. Jones.
Perhaps following in the footsteps of Sheen’s initial outbursts against the show, Jones made disparaging comments against Two and a Half Men in a religious testimonial video, which subsequently went viral. Suddenly everyone new just how much he »

In an exclusive sneak peek of this Wednesday’s Forever Young finale — the reality show that pairs “juniors” and “seniors” together to live in a house —the young adults take their elderly counterparts out on the town for a night of dancing. Once it’s clarified that they are going to a “club” and not a “disco,” the dance lessons begin. What follows is a little bump and grind, a little shopping cart action and at least one occurrence of a lap dance. By the end of the night, the “lewd dancing” seems to be a hit with everyone.

A consistent ratings juggernaut for much of the last decade, there was little doubt that CBS’s Two and a Half Men would be see a full-season renewal for the fall of 2013. However, speculation has run rampant as to whether former child-actor Angus T. Jones (The Rookie) would return to show with leads Ashton Kutcher (Jobs) and Jon Cryer (Due Date).
Let said speculating end, as it looks as if Jones has opted not to return as a regular cast member. Reports indicate that he may occasionally appear as a guest star, but Two and a Half Men will soon be lacking its “half” more often than not.

Looks like Angus T. Jones's rant against his livelihood ("Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please.") paid off — while Two and a Half Men will forge ahead to an eleventh season, Jones won't return as a regular cast member. According to Deadline, "he may do guest-starring appearances." Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer each signed one-year deals. They're TV's highest-paid actors, with Kutcher having earned $700,000 an episode for season ten, and Cryer making a tad less. »

CBS has officially ordered an eleventh season of Two and a Half Men with Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher returning as series regulars. Angus T. Jones will not be returning as a regular and is currently negotiating with the network to recur throughout the season.
The future of Jones in the sitcom was called into question when the actor publicly lashed out against the show by calling it "filth" amongst other choice words. He eventually followed up with a public apology and also expressed interest in attending college which would not leave enough time to work on the series full-time.
Stars Cryer and Kutcher have signed one-year deals for Season 11 which indicates CBS is taking a one season at a time approach rather than committing to multiple years at once. The rumored per episode paycheck for Kutcher is a cool $700,000.

When CBS's hit sitcom Two and a Half Men returns this fall, the show will be half a man down. CBS announced Friday, Apr. 26, that though the show -- and actors Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher -- will be returning for an 11th season, child star Angus T. Jones will not be signing on as a regular cast member. Jones, 19, could reportedly return to the series periodically as a recurring character, however, Deadline.com reports. Both Kutcher and Cryer have signed on for one-year contracts for [...] »
CBS is officially bringing back Two and a Half Men for an 11th season this fall.
Jones' future had been in question, and not just because he is an actual man now (they should change the title to 3 Men). He famously called the series "filth" and said he wanted out last year.
Guess he will be, at least if his schedule permits. According to reports, it is "likely" the 19-year-old will choose to go to college after this season, but recur on Men when available.

Two and a Half Men has officially been renewed for an 11th season, the network announced Friday, and stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have closed one-year deals to return.

Jones, back part-time. Jones' future on the show has been in question since his infamous rant, in which he called the series "filth" and said he no longer wished to be on it.

Ashton and Jon were shocked last year when Angus launched a tirade against the sitcom calling it 'filth' in a video with his church pastor and while Jon was surprised, he felt living through former co-star Charlie Sheen's falling out with creator Chuck Lorre left him better prepared for it than Ashton.

CBS' long-running "Two and a Half Men" will return this fall for Season 11, but might it just be "Two Men" when it does?
The Hollywood Reporter writes that the renewal was granted once stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer signed new one-year contracts to return as regulars, but young star Angus T. Jones (you know, the half man) isn't locked into anything.
The network and Warner Bros. Television, the studio behind the show, are currently working on a deal for Jones, who last November infamously criticized the show that's lined his pockets for the past ten years, to return on a recurring basis.
Jones' presence on the show was already diminished this season. After his character Jake joined the army at the end of Season 9, he's appeared only occasionally. »
