With Angus Jones going a little cray cray, naturally CBS and Chuck Lorre gave him the boot for the upcoming season. With them missing the half man in the title, they began the hunt for his replacement. In Lorre’s misogynist mind, I’m sure adding a lesbian character constitutes as the “half man.” Can’t you see it? I definitely can. Tapped to join the show’s eleventh season is one of the girls from The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants. Find out who below.
With Angus T. Jones being phased out from Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre is on the hunt for another “half.” In a somewhat surprising twist, the new young addition to the veteran sitcom is going to be an LGBT character. In fact, it’s going to be a lesbian and not just any, but Charlie Harper’s (Charlie Sheen) long-lost daughter.
Just when people thought Charlie Sheen was the only one on Two and a Half Men that would anger the show’s producers, crew, cast, and backers, Angus Jones proves us wrong.
In a video interview with Forerunner Chronicles, Jones talks about joining a new church, bible study, and how religion has affected his life. He then addresses the camera and says, “If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.’” Yes, he really says that. “I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it,” he adds. “Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.” As shown in the photo above, Jones (who plays Jake Harper on the show) recently had scenes with guest star Miley Cyrus.
“People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you, you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch.” Essentially in what he says later in the video, he’s not okay with being on the show as it isn’t in line with God’s will and often refers to “the enemy,” when discussing the devil. So far, there has been no comment from CBS. Watch the bizarre video below.
Remember when Miley Cyrus cut her hair? I’m wondering if that had anything to do with her recently announced television appearance. This fall, we will able to catch Miley on CBS’ hit comedy, Two and a Half Men for a 2-episode story arc. If you were a fan of her as Hannah Montana and miss her on TV, here’s your chance to catch her on the small screen again. Cyrus will be playing the role of Missi.
According to CBS, Miley’s character will be visiting the house for a week (within two episodes) and is an old friend of Walden’s (played by Ashton Kutcher). She begins to develop a relationship with Jake (Angus Turner Jones) once he returns from the Army. It’ll be great to see Kutcher and Cyrus on screen together outside of his former MTV show, Punk’d which Miley has been a frequent guest on. Another connection to the show is her long-time Twitter friendship with the show’s former star, Charlie Sheen.
The 2011 Fall television season is almost a month old now and I thought this would be the perfect time to look back at some of the shows’ early promotional artwork. With already a handful of cancellation notices being already delivered, plenty more shows are either waiting to receive a full order for the season or to terminate production immediately. Must be stressful to be a showrunner.
In this day and age, it’s all about instant results. Most networks are trigger happy when it comes to getting rid of shows. Either they premiere with big numbers or show growth in subsequent episodes or they’re dunzo. Long gone are the days when networks were willing to nurture a show and give it a shot. Realistically, only The CW does that nowadays because they have a smaller viewership. So you know when they cancel you early, it’s because you suck major balls. I’m talking to you Mario Lopez and your awful “H8R”.
Obviously to do well, you need the right amount of promotion and advertising dollars on your side. Great creative also helps and that’s why I decided to write this post. I scoured through most of the shows this season to pick my favorite posters. With a new show, it’s especially important to tell what the show is about with an eye-catching visual. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and these ten were the ones that succeeded in conveying their message, IMHO. See if you agree with my choices.
In today’s edition of TV BackTalk, we discuss a few notable premieres airing last night, including NBC’s “The Playboy Club” & “The Sing-Off” and CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” and “2 Broke Girls“. “The Playboy Club” received a lot of press during the summer due to a few affiliates refusing to air the show due to it’s racy subject matter. You know what they say about judging a book by its cover. Well, that old adage definitely applies here. The NBC period drama is not what it seems and surprisingly good.
The other highly-anticipated premiere last night occurred on CBS. Just how “Two and a Half Men” would deal with Charlie Sheen’s departure and Ashton’s arrival was on everyone’s minds. The episode was rumored to include a few notable cameos. Did the CBS sitcom live up to all the hype? Keep reading below to find out.
Last night on David Letterman, the cast of Two & A Half Men were on live via satellite to deliver their Top 10 reasons why you should watch their show this season. Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones were all on hand to deliver the one liners as Dave counted them down. Overall, they were semi-funny and the delivery could have used a little more luster. Even Dave made a comment saying, “I think they were under the impression that this was rehearsal. Check out the Top 10 reasons:
To see the cast deliver the list, check out the video below. Two & A Half Men returns with all new episodes on CBS September 19th (check local listings).
It’s about that time for the return of America’s favorite comedy, Two and a Half Men. New cast mate Ashton Kutcher was the first tweet a behind-the-scenes photo of the three boys together but now, an official billboard has hit the streets of Hollywood and we must say, it’s pretty revealing.
Covered in nothing but a white sign depicting when the return of the show with newbie Ashton Kutcher will return, the look has more than just Jon Cryer turning heads. While it’s obvious that Ashton will bring a different tone to the show, this new ad lets us all know that the humor will still remain the same. As the billboard informs us, we can look forward to the first new episode of 2.5 men on September 19th. Will you be tuning in?
