Last year, producers added an LGBT character (Amber Tamblyn) to Two and a Half Men. This year, the CBS sitcom is upping the gay quotient. CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler revealed Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer will get married on the series’ upcoming 12th season during a Television Critics Association press event on Thursday. Find out why and how below.

On the heels of CBS renewing The Big Bang Theory for three more seasons, the eye network delivered good news to 18 of their other series. Nine of those were dramas which include CSI; Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Elementary, The Good Wife, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and Person of Interest.

“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” said Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler. “The shows we’re picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television.”

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.

Fall Television’s 10 Best Promo Posters

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.
