Save Two and a Half Men
Two and a Half Men is a show which not only has millions
of viewers, but has a level of popularity which translates as a huge
cash cow for CBS. On February 24, 2011, CBS suspended production of the
show as a result of a radio interview in which star Charlie Sheen made
some very unflattering comments about show creator and executive
producer Chuck Lorre.
Shutting down production is serving no useful purpose. It is not only hurting the fans by depriving them of a very entertaining sitcom, it is depriving many crew members of the pay they rightfully deserve. In addition, Charlie Sheen and the rest of the cast deserve to be paid for what their respective contracts indicated would be paid.
According to USA Today: "There's a strong likelihood that Two and a Half Men will never be back, putting fellow cast and crewmembers out of work and costing producers Warner Bros. Television tens of millions of dollars." And, of course, CBS is likely to lose a tremendous amount of money due to this suspension.
While it may not be possible for everyone to "kiss and make up," we do hope everyone involved can work together to maintain production of a show which has become beloved to millions of viewers.
We, the signers on this petition, due hereby request that CBS and Warner Bros. Television resume production of Two and a Half Men and that Charlie Sheen be reinstated in the role of "Charlie Harper" as soon as possible.
As has been the case in the past, our intent is for the voices of the fans be heard and that the best solution for all concerned (fans, cast, crew, network) be taken into consideration for the enjoyment and benefit to all. This petition will be forwarded to network executives upon a gathering of sufficient signatures.
