Well, Schmidt unveiled the new look on Monday (Nov. 14), and the pad has a decidedly tech flavor. In keeping with the tech billionaire's interests, the home has voice-recognition software connected to everything from the light switches to the stereo to the refrigerator. Of course there's a bit of a rub as it's only calibrated to his voice, so Alan's (Jon Cryer) going to have a little trouble with it. And God knows what Jake (Angus T. Jones) will do when he can't figure out the toaster.
The highlight of the new place is the gigantic TV set that probably has an 80-inch screen or more. Plus there's the three couch pillows of "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete." Once a tech nerd, »
Deus ex machina is a Latin term that translates into English as "Jump the Shark." Actually that's not true, but it might as well when you're talking about Monday's (Nov. 14) episode of "Two and a Half Men."
When we left off, Alan (Jon Cryer) checked into a mental hospital as he was having trouble coping with Charlie's death. Well, Alan's out and ready to take us for a ride.
On a dark and stormy night, a tornado uproots the Malibu beach house hurtling it skyward. It ultimately lands miles away, killing Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Jake (Angus T. Jones) and coincidentally crushing Evelyn's (Holland Taylor) home with her in it. With both residences rendered uninhabitable and nowhere else to go, a newly released Alan figures he can seek momentary lodging with his ex-wife Judith.
When he arrives at Judith's place, he sees the light on inside. Since it's still raining, »
The actress will play the mother of Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) in at least two episodes this season, although it isn't known when Mimi Rogers' debut episode will air. It is said that Mimi Rogers' character is a celebrated primatologist, a scientist who studies apes.
Ashton Kutcher took over for the embattled Charlie Sheen in Season 9, portraying Walden Schmidt, a bizarre millionaire who buys Charlie Harper's house after his untimely death, and allows Alan (Jon Cryer) and Jake (Angus T. Jones) to keep living in the house.
Despite the loss of Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men continues to perform well in the Monday night 9 Pm time slot on CBS. Last night's episode, Thanks For the Intercourse, pulled in 14.5 million viewers. »
Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is gone and his house is sold to immature billionaire Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), a guy who still finds a place for Alan (Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (Angus T. Jones). The ninth season of Two and a Half Men typically airs Monday nights at 9pm on the CBS network.
Here are the TV show's ratings for the 2011-12 season, the best way to tell if Two and a Half Men is going to be cancelled or renewed for season 10. These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:

Ok, perhaps a better way of putting it is if it wasn't for Judy Greer's character Bridget wanting a divorce, Kutcher's character Walden Schmidt wouldn't have attempted to drown himself and ended up alongside Alan (Jon Cryer) and Jake (Angus Jones) in the Malibu beach house.
But Monday (Oct. 24) marks the end of Greer's four-episode arc with the show as the soon-to-be-ex of the Internet billionaire. And if Greer was in a similar spot in real life, she'd do the same as her character, divorcing the overgrown child.
"It's pretty incredible when you think of how gorgeous he is and how much money his character has...[but] I would probably get a little tired of it. I mean [Schmidt's] pretty out there," she says.
Greer continues, "I could see myself being like 'I'll do it. »
KidsPickFlicks at Variety's Power of Youth
I was fortunate enough to be invited to cover the red carpet for Variety for their annual Power of Youth event, a block party where Young Hollywood comes out to demonstrate their strength in the world of philanthropy. It may be surprising to learn that almost all of the celebrity kids have at least one cause they support, many have several. Moreover, some kid stars are very hands on with their involvement. Most fascinating is that often young actors and singers are guided toward charity work by an influential co-worker or associate.
Hailee Steinfeld said her True Grit co-star Jeff Bridges told her about Share Our Strength. She was deeply moved by Bridges' personal involvement and committment, particularly to their No Kid Hungry campaign, and she jumped on board as well.
Chloe G. Moretz told me that while on the set of Hugo, legendary »

In all, seven celebrities have been recognised for their charity work and together they'll scoop up the accolades at a special ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Glee hunk Criss has been an avid supporter of the Trevor Project, which raises awareness about the suicide rate among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth, Panettiere has been a longtime advocate of the Whaleman Foundation, which preserves oceanic habitats, and breakout True Grit star Steinfeld fronts the hunger campaign Share Our Strength.
Angus T. Jones, the highest-paid child star on television, turns 18 years old Saturday (Oct. 8). Do you think "Two and a Half Men" should become "Three Men." They could add a spunky little girl character and call it "Three Men and a Little Lady."
Just kidding. Happy birthday to Angus. He currently makes $300,000 per episode, which puts him well ahead of the second-highest paid child star, "iCarly's" Miranda Cosgrove at $180,000 an episode.
Jones has certainly started looking like a man as of late. He's shot up in height and has also lost all of his baby fat, turning him into a lean, mean joke-cracking machine on "Men." He can be seen for at least two more seasons on the hit CBS sitcom.
Happy birthday, Angus! »
Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and even Pinhead have got nothing on this hell-raiser. Just look at him — high on tiger blood, wrath, and headlines, Charlie Sheen is one of the most frightening(ly hilarious?) figures of 2011. So, as hard as it is to resist being Sheen this Halloween (it even rhymes!), you must not impersonate the “winning” walking punchline this holiday. Why? Well, it’s impossible to score when when you choose the most unoriginal costume on Oct. 31. And, in 2011, Sheen will be unoriginal. In fact, according to CNNMoney, the former Two and a Half Men star is the top choice for costumes this year. »

It took three episodes, but Jake (Angus T. Jones) finally made it back into Two and a Half Men fold to hopefully steer this ship back on course. It certainly couldn’t get any worse, could it? After giving Alan (Jon Cryer) a free pass to stay “for a couple of days” Wally (Ashton Kutcher) was reintroduced to Jake, peeing in his bushes. Alan’s final words last week when he weaseled his way back into the beach house were, “I’m back!” Alan was right, he is back to losing battles to Judith, back to being scared of his mother, and back to being pushed around by his son. Now Berta (Conchata Ferrell) is piling on, taking his old room and pushing him to Jake’s old room. Berta: You (Alan) don’t stay anywhere for a couple of days… I’ve got to explain something to you (Wally »

That’s a record high for the series, and a proud moment for CBS, regardless of the fact that much of the ninth season premiere’s humor hung from an array of jokes about penis size, sexually transmitted diseases, and a couple of farts from the half-man (Angus T. Jones). Executive producer Chuck Lorre not only reveled in his vengeance by making Charlie Sheen‘s character Charlie Harper die a rather horrible death, but he also made sure the audience will never forget that the jingle writer’s jangles housed a wide array of viruses. A number of Charlie’s previous… »

If CBS was worried yesterday about the future of Two and Half Men post-Charlie Sheen, they are breathing easily today. A huge audience of 27.7 million tuned in to see Ashton Kutcher make his celebrated debut on the show’s season 9 premiere last night. But as EW’s Ken Tucker points out, Sheen’s presence still dominated the proceedings — and it wasn’t just because of his character’s demise.
Ridicule Sheen, ridicule Two and a Half Men, ridicule its popularity, but you can’t overlook the role of Sheen’s innate Sheenism in making the show a ratings force. »

CBS's Two and a Half Men is now actually one man, played by Jon Cryer, one near-man, played by Angus T. Jones, and one manchild. That would be Ashton Kutcher, who made his debut Monday night on the de-Sheened sitcom as Walden Schmidt. Walden is nearly the opposite of Charlie Sheen's now-dead sleaze king Charlie Harper: Sweet, unsarcastic but - here we stay true to the show's gawping bawdiness - possessed of an astounding anatomical endowment that he soon puts to use. The instant verdict: Kutcher was not at all bad. He was quite likable. First, though, we must dispose of the corpse. »

Actor Jon Cryer capped off an amazing weekend by unveiling the 2,449th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday morning
The Pretty in Pink star was joined by his Two and a Half Men co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Angus T. Jones and show creator Chuck Lorre as he accepted the honour just 24 hours after completing the Annual Nautical Malibu Triathlon and then attending the Emmy Awards, where he and Kutcher were among the presenters.
Accepting the Walk of Fame honour, Cryer took a moment to remember Charlie Sheen, who was fired earlier this year following a well-publicised fight with producers and Lorre.
He said, "I do have to say a real word of thanks to my co-star of eight years, Charlie Sheen, who gave me so much as a performer and who I enjoyed working with so much."
The unveiling got serious when Cryer went on to thank Lorre and co-creator Lee Aronsohn for saving his former castmate's life.
He explained, "I feel the need to thank Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, who when they saw somebody who was clearly in distress, took every possible means to try to help their friend, and who, you know, when it came time to make the ultimate decision, which was someplace that nobody wanted to go, did something that in my belief saved my friend Charlie Sheen’s life." »
With all eyes watching this highly publicized transition of characters, will Chuck Lorre be able to reinvent his hit CBS sitcom with a new character serving as the lead, all while still maintaining the same type of quality storytelling that the series’ fans have grown to expected?
After months of debating, the potential future of Two and a Half Men will be revealed in the season 9 premiere.
Despite the fact that the Two ...

Jon Cryer may be a "troll," but at least he's a troll with a star. Despite being on the receiving end of a not quite tongue-in-cheek jab from former costar Charlie Sheen last spring, Cryer still had kind words for his old Two and a Half Men mate today as Cryer was enshrined on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Flanked by Sheen's replacement, Ashton Kutcher, Half Man Angus T. Jones and series mastermind Chuck Lorre in a ceremony held only hours before Two and a Half Men's ninth season premiere (and Ashton's debut) tonight, Cryer couldn't help but express gratitude to the Warlock. "I do have to say a real word of thanks to my costar of eight years, Charlie Sheen, who gave me so much »
A whole new era of the top-rated CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men kicks off with the Season 9 premiere tonight, September 19 at 9 Pm Et, when Ashton Kutcher steps in to replace Charlie Sheen in Episode 9.1: Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt. Ashton Kutcher recently wrote an editorial about why he took the job, and one of the "two and a half reasons" was due to his presence in social media. Here's what he had to say below.
"When I really broke down the decision to take the job, there were so many rewards and few risks - except maybe one: I was stepping into a media frenzy. But I figured I could temper that a bit by keeping the lines of communication open with my social media presence. I can always set the record straight."
The actor also said he took the job to spend more time with his family, »
Oh, that Ashton Kutcher. He's a smooth operator. We imagine it's hard to be the new guy coming onto an establish sitcom like Two and a Half Men, going into its ninth season. We also imagine bringing a massage therapist with you is a pretty great way to win over your costars, which is exactly what Kutcher did during his second week on the new job. Jon Cryer called it "a lovely gesture" that "cut the tension quite nicely." So, was setting newbie Ashton on fire also a way to cut the tension?! Ok, so he really wasn't set on fire, but Kutcher, Cryer and Angus T. Jones did get a kick out of milking the fake story for some laughs. "We weren't even filming!" Angus said. »
Season nine will feature an all new intro sang by Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. The upcoming ninth season set to air on September 19. What do you think of the new collaboration of "Manly Men"? Two and a Half Men centers around a hedonistic jingle writer, Charlie Harper; his uptight brother, Alan; and Alan's growing son, Jake. Charlie's free-wheeling life is complicated when his brother gets divorced and moves, along with his son, into Charlie's beach-front Malibu house. Two and a Half Men stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor and Marin Hinkle. Created and executive produced by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn. »

Two and a Half Men creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre is not necessarily a shy guy. But when it comes to the recent events surrounding Two and a Half Men, Lorre has remained silent — until now.
Timed to TV Guide Magazine's Fall Preview issue, which features the first sit-down interview with new Two and a Half Men castmates Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, Lorre finally agreed to discuss why he decided to keep Two and a Half Men going after star Charlie Sheen was fired. He's also honest in admitting that Kutcher wasn't his first choice for the gig — which he originally envisioned in a whole different way.
