Charlie Sheen may think he’s “winning,” but one thing he’s certainly lost is his contract with “Two and a Half Men.” CBS and Warner Bros. Television have announced that they have officially fired the trouble actor from the hit TV show, which went on hiatus for the rest of the season following Sheen’s incredibly public meltdown. That meltdown shows no signs of stopping and CBS execs have clearly tired of Sheen’s shenanigans. So, how long before the public tires as well? Though Sheen reached two million followers on Twitter less than a week after joining the social networking site, there are already signs that the public is getting bored, perhaps because the media has been absolutely saturated with 24/7 Sheen coverage. The Village Voice has declared this Friday to be “Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter Day.” Sheen responded to his termination with a statement sent to TMZ:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
Oh, and as for “Two and a Half Men”? CBS execs didn’t reveal whether a decision had been made about the show’s future — which means they might be seriously considering recasting Sheen’s role.
