‘Two and a Half Men’ Ready to Crash and Burn, Tanks to Lowest Ratings Ever

February 9th, 2014 No comments

Well this is not a surprise.  Crashing and burning is what television shows do.  But not what we expect from the former CBS hit drama  Two and a Half Men which has consistently been a ratings juggernaut for the network.

Let’s be real.  The Olympics are airing on NBC which will kick the ass of every major network or cable network.  But for Two and a Half Men this is a major surprise.

The show has dropped to its lowest level since the Charlie Sheen days.  Literally at the bottom of the audience watching charts for this past Thursday.

And why is anyone surprise?  Well the show actually has gotten a whole hell of a lot better since the beginning of the Ashton Kutcher era but there’s no doubt about the fact that Two and a Half Men will never be what it has been in the past with the irrascabile Charlie Sheen.

Too bad.  But totally expected.

Big, Dumb Ashton Kutcher and His Total Twitter Screw-Up

November 10th, 2011 No comments

This is going to be more editorial that a story about television.  Because now it has been confirmed that  Ashton Kutcher has to be the dumbest cluck on earth.  The Two and a Half Men substitute for Charlie Sheen finds himself in hot water because of his complete and utter stupidity.  Any moron that has no clue as to what’s happening at Penn State and Paterno’s Pedophiles is clearly not close to being connected to the real world.

Angus T. Jones, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer from "Two and a Half Men'

This is a classic case of how some in the new age of the digital world show more interest in social media and the newest gadgets out on the market rather than understanding what’s going on in the real world.

How in the universe could anyone working in the media business, as does Ashton Kutcher or owning several web sites, as Ashton Kutcher does, not know about the rape crimes that took place at Penn State University?  Seriously what planet could Ashton Kutcher have landed on over the past several days to have him lost in space on Paterno’s Pedophiles?

Ashton Kutcher has now placed the writing of his Twitter page to his management because he Tweeted in support of Penn State coach Joe Paterno who is under significant fire for his lack of movement to provide a safe environment for underage boys.  These minors ended up being sexually assaulted by an assistant coach for Penn State and Joe Paterno didn’t do a thing to stop these crimes from that sick, despicable Jerry Sandusky.

And Ashton Kutcher had no clue what was going on.  Really how stupid is this guy?  Really?  How stupid is Ashton Kutcher?

It’s time for people to put down the Twitter accounts, the Facebook pages, Stumble Upon this and that, take the Ipads or Ipods or Izods and start to turn on the real news to find out what is really happening in the world.  This moron Tweeted “How do you fire Jo P” on his Twitter page that has a gazillion followers not knowing that Jo P or Joe Paterno is more than likely going to be indicted for his involvement in the child rape scandal at Penn State.

What an asshole, this Ashton Kutcher.

He did apologize for being lost in space but this proves he’s just as big, dumb and stupid as his character Walden is on Two and a Half Men .

I have no real feelings for Ashton Kutcher as an actor.  So that means he’s pretty mediocre.  Two and a Half Men has gotten a bit better but it’s no where near the same show as it was with Charlie Sheen.  So I really don’t care.  But for anyone to be that out of touch is an embarrassment to anyone part of reality.  No one should be unaware of the stank taking place at Penn State but strangely enough this actor is beyond the real world when it comes to the gravity of this story.

Time to put down the toys and read a book Ashton.  Really read a book.

YouTube Starting 100 TV Channels, Looks to Compete with Satellite, Cable TV

October 28th, 2011 No comments

Now comes some real competition for TV viewers of satellite and cable providers.  Most of us already are watching some content on our computers regularly but soon viewing TV programs on a big screen in your homes could become a thing of the past.  Or you’ll be connecting your computer to your TV non- stop.

'Modern Family's Sofia VergaraThe monster online video content provider YouTube is getting in to the production business developing partnerships with some of the biggest names in television.  They include Ashton Kutcher, the World Wrestling Federation,  Home Shopping Network, Anthony Zuiker (CSI creator), the Wall Street Journal and Warner Bros.

There will be 100 available channels featuring content that runs longer than the short term content you regularly see on YouTube.  There will even be an Hispanic channel featuring Sofia Vergara from ABC’s Modern Family to reach out to that quickly growing segment of the population.

Most of the channels aren’t set to launch until 2012 and will offer up to 25 hours or new content every day.

With three of the four networks consistently shedding audience every year, YouTube is in prime position to grab viewers looking to watch content beyond regular TV.  This without question is the biggest push to eliminate the big four networks ever in the new world of digital video.

Ashton Kutcher’s Trouble Already at ‘Two and a Half Men’

September 28th, 2011 No comments

Well rumors have been flying around about Ashton Kutcher’s alleged flings with other women that have spawned talk of a split with Demi Moore.  There’s even the more recent chatter on the web about an incident with a woman in San Diego just this past weekend.

Now with him on the CBS show Two and a Half Men, the use of social media has got the actor in trouble with the network.

CBS is a tad bit ticked off that the actor was Tweeting and promoting content from several online companies that he has ownership interest.  During Monday night’s second episode featuring Kutcher, he apparently Tweeted positive content about how those companies that gave what he termed “laptop-sticker love on Two and a Half Men.’

Problem is CBS has no financial interest in Foursquare, Hipboard, Hipmunk or Chegg while Ashton Kutcher does.  To promote them is what could be termed “plugola” on Kutcher’s part so he could not only be in trouble with CBS but could also face an issue with the Federal Communications Commission.

Take it from an old school radio guy the word “plugola” brings back the vision of lawyers, congressional sub-committees, depositions and a long amount of sleepless nights.

Now CBS wants to get compensation from those four entities that Kutcher is promoting.

This is the second time Kutcher got himself in to simmering water as the FTC investigated him earlier this year for a similar “plugola” incident but declined to pursue anything further than a basic investigation.

Stay tuned.  Kutcher may get away with this activity for a moment from CBS but certainly won’t hide from the FCC.  They don’t play that stuff.  Nor does Demi on the story of the young girl Ashton may have spent time with in San Diego.

The New ‘Two and a Half Men’ So Bad But Draws 28 Million Viewers

September 19th, 2011 No comments

My God am I really going to say this.  Do I really miss Charlie Harper?  Or Charlie Sheen?  Or whomever is responsible for whatever Two and a Half Men tried to sell us last night?  Or is it a bit too early to tell if Ashton Kutcher can pull it off.  But if last night’s episode of the remake of the show is any indication, and I really hate to say this, Two and a Half Men is simply dead on its new arrival.

Still the show drew in a voyeuristic 28 million viewers to the premiere episode featuring Ashton Kutcher.  Will that audience holdover?  More than likely not but although the show wasn’t really that funny there was enough to get me to at least go a second round next Monday night.

Jon C?ryer and Ashton Kutcher in 'Two and a Half Men'

Not funny.  Let me say this again, not funny at all.  In fact pretty terrible.  Two and a Half Men already was in part on the decline as the writing and comedic efforts even with Charlie Sheen seemed pretty forced.  But the premiere episode titled Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt, missed the mark from Ashton Kutcher’s insertion in to the show.

The opening of the show was done extremely well as was the ending.  Everything in between was pretty awful.  So the ratings will be fantastic but can Ashton Kutcher carry the day to week number two?

Wow, this was truly disappointing to watch, almost like taking your nails and scratching them on a chalkboard.

Not done very well and scary.  Do we want Charlie Sheen back?  Oh man, say it’s not so.  Can this show survive?  Only time will tell but John Stamos, who had a quick hit in this episode, is probably thinking “thanks but no thanks” for not being named Sheen’s replacement.

This could be a real mess for CBS.  This has got to get better.  Quickly.  I mean real quickly.  Charlie Sheen, all clean and sober on his roast on Comedy Central, is about to settle his case with Warner Bros. for a boatload of money.

And he won’t be the first jerk not to play well with the other kids on the block as in what happened with CBS personality Julie Chen and The Talk, the daytime gabfest for everyone without a penis.  She apparently didn’t play nice with the other girls on the set, got a couple fired but is waking up next to CBS big boss Leslie Moonves.  He may have to re-think his move to work with Warner and drop Charlie Sheen.

Oh I just can’t believe I’m saying this.  Did I miss Charlie Sheen, the drunk, womanizing typical Hollywood a-hole on Two and a Half Men?

Yes.  I did.

Ashton Kutcher Versus the Village Voice and Not a Pretty Episode

July 3rd, 2011 No comments

Not sure Ashton Kutcher needs this right now.  Neither does the Village Voice from someone that just became one of the biggest actors in pay and profile on network television.  The new guy to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men is going one on one against the New York media giant in a conversation over sex slavery.  And Ashton Kutcher is looking to blow the print off the cover of the newspaper after an article blasting him titled Real Men Get Their Facts Straight.

Sex slavery is the topic and it’s not a pretty story.  Kutcher has been on fire doing what he can from a social network standpoint and personally to fight the problem worldwide.  But once the Village Voice joked about Ashton’s effort to highlight the issue and all hell broke loose.  Kutcher when on a massive effort to target advertisers of the Village Voice Why?  Because the Village Voice runs suspect ads that could be considered sex trafficking on their online site called Backpage.com.

Seems a 15 year old boy has accused the Village Voice of running an ad selling him on an area of Backpage.com.  There’s a lawsuit pending on this accusation as well.  Kutcher then went postal on the Village Voice from a social media campaign and then did what all do when dealing with the media.  Target their advertisers.

American Airlines got the message and pulled their ads from the publication.  Kutcher tweeted to American “are you aware that you are advertising on a site that supports the Sale of Human Beings (slavery)?”

And American Airlines responded.  Pulled all advertising.

And the Village Voice jumped all over Ashton Kutcher on his relationship with “confessed pimp” Snoop Doggy Dogg.

Oh this is gonna get nasty.

But getting American Airlines to pull their advertising from the Backpage.com is huge.  Can only spread to other advertisers on the web-site.

Got one word for ya.  Craigslist.  Remember the pressure they got and continue to get over their sexual oriented content forcing them to remove one area of concern from the feds.

The Village Voice may do best to play nice, nice with Ashton Kutcher.  For some reason this guy’s got some serious power and is playing it out really well.  And no one, even in New York, likes any selling of 15 year old boys for sexual purposes so this could be a losing battle for the Village Voice.

‘Two and a Half Men’ Premiere, Charlie Sheen Docked Again

June 30th, 2011 No comments

Can’t wait till Charlie Sheen gets his new show if he gets a new show, can’t wait for Charlie Sheen to get a couple of new goddesses as he is currently without company now and can’t wait for the newly revised Two and a Half Men to return to CBS with an all new lead this fall.

Plus Sheen needs the money.  As he has lost a few more bucks and it’s coming out of his wages he still is earning from the CBS sitcom.  Let’s start backward and work toward the front.

Sheen is having $55,000 a month garnished from his paycheck to cover his child support payment to his two kids and ex-wife.  Brooke Mueller went to court to force the judgment against Charlie Sheen and the judge overseeing the case approved the garnishment.  The divorce became final on May 2nd, a couple of months after Sheen got bounced from the CBS sitcom.

During that time there went one goddess.

Now that Sheen is gone from Two and a Half Men, the network announced the date of the return of the show with new lead Ashton Kutcher.  It will air its premiere episode on September 19th at 9PM.  As we reported earlier, expect Charlie Harper to be killed off in a car accident as his Mercedes flips off a cliff with him at the driver’s wheel.  Kutcher’s character then purchases Harper’s home on the beach at Malibu and keeps everything in place with Allen and Jake as his new tenants.

During that time went the other goddess.

Now that Charlie Sheen is losing cash from his ex-wife, no gig at Two and a Half Men, he’s rumored to be negotiating a new comedy show with TBS.  The cable network denies any conversation but we all know what that means.  Stay tuned.

‘Charlie Harper’ Drives Mercedes Off a Cliff is Rumor on Charlie Sheen’s Demise

June 17th, 2011 No comments

So that’s what they’re talking about really big time in Hollywood today.  Extra, the syndicated television show that runs in most cities after your network evening news, is reporting that writers are working on a script that says Charlie Harper misses a turn and drives his Mercedes off a cliff.

Oh Peter Lorre, the creator of  Two and a Half Men, the hit CBS show, is getting his payback on Charlie Sheen.

Charlie Sheen's Stolen Mercedes

That’s the plan to get rid of the actor’s character on the show.  Now if you remember Charlie Sheen was the victim of two car thefts of his Mercedes and both times the car was driven off a cliff.  No dead bodies were found at either incident but the cars were totaled.  Now the rumored plan is to create the same concept to kill off Charlie Harper from Two and a Half Men.

Wow!

And it seems that Charlie Harper doesn’t have a will.  Because somehow his replacement on the show, Ashton Kutcher, purchases the home the character owned on the beach in Malibu, California and moves in to the house, keeping Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones as his house guests.

The producers are completely denying that the script will go as discussed but you gotta admit it’s a pretty good idea.  In the meantime Charlie Sheen has been running around Hollywood pitching a new comedy show of his own to several networks with FOX as his potential target.  FOX of course is denying that report but Sheen would be a perfect fit for the youth oriented FOX.

Is Sheen ready to grow up and go to work?  That seems to be the question for any network that will take a chance on the much maligned actor.

More to come.  Oh you gotta admit as well that this is actually fun.

Ashton Kutcher Replaces Charlie Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men’

May 12th, 2011 No comments

OK there was John Stamos, Jeremy Piven and everyone else in line to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.  Now comes word from The Hollywood Reporter that Ashton Kutcher has landed the role of ‘Charlie Harper’ on the CBS sitcom.

Speaking on the identification as sources only, Kutcher is about to get a “huge payday” from the producers of the show for his integration in the series.  So that kills our story below about Hugh Grant as CBS was in talks with the British actor to be on the show in place of Charlie Sheen.  But seems the cash was not enough.  He was offered $600,000 per episode to take over the hot seat replacing the very popular Charlie Sheen.

Now CBS will have a huge story to talk about at their upfront presentation scheduled for next week.
