    I wish these new's show's would find a new subject. I don't need an update every day on what he did today. And who he did it with.
    I feel sorry for the people he work's with. That they will lose there job's.

    I am so saddened at the state of what the US considers as news. Charlie Sheen???sorry, not interested. I like the show but even that cancellation or whatever is not news. Teen moms on tv? not news. Lindsey Lohan? Not news. if the stations need fillers, give me some good news like how someone helped someone else altruistically.

    He needs to be commited & not let out! He never seems to learn his lesson & just keeps getting publicity for it!

    Charlie is just a bad bad boy. whom has never grown up. that's what drug use does to a person. and I feel for the rest of the crew of 2 and 1/2 men. its funny how one persons addiction hurts so many others.. I'm in a family with a charlie type person and his actions have hurt this family to the core.

    Wow, we don't watch much TV. I was completely lost, LOL, had to read a few comments to figure it out. I am glad it is off, Don't like the show. It is played during the day on a family station, but Im sorry. the topics on that show are not family friendly, hiring a hooker for a birthday?! Least that was the episode I saw.

    They gave him plenty of warnings about the show, It is my understanding this has been going on for quite so time?

    I have never like this show. My hubby watches it my mom and a girlfriend. I have never under stood what they saw in the show. Some of the better shows the networks will take off the air and leave things on that arn't worth our time.

    I've heard about this on the radio during my drive into work, but fortunately none of the news programs I watch talk about it.

    I've never seen the show and I don't have much of an opinion about Charlie Sheen or any of them, except a) who knows what the truth is, b) his costars should have seen the writing on the wall some time ago, and c) the producers should have had a back up plan so they didn't have to deep-six themselves just to get back at him.

    Too much drama. I'm going back to politics (HAHA!)

    The best thing the media could do for him would be to ignore him...this way he doesn't have an audience for his acting out.
    I do enjoy the show...it can be witty! But, I'm sure that Charlie is in a terrible tailspin and doesn't even know it...
    He needs to be committed by his family....because this is going to kill him if he is left to his own decisions.

    Can't believe the show has been on for so many years, it was a one joke show that got boring very quickly. What a shame that he has wasted so much of his life. May in Jersey

    Living in SoCal, it's even worse! Local "news" can't get enough of stars' antics. Thankfully, I live far away from LA proper, and only watch the LA "local" news for weather! Personally, I never liked the show and couldn't figure out why it's been on so long, but I feel sorry for the rest of the people involved - but unfortunately, that's show biz these days.

    I totally agree with everyone. The show was cute the first year and went downhill quickly...like much of regular TV just not appropriate for viewing. Thank goodness my kids are grown and I don't have to police TV like I hear some of my younger friends discuss. We watch sports, Cooking Channel, HGTV, sports, history, sports and that is about it....lol. It is mostly for background noise.

    I'm of the opinion that the public doesn't care, it's the media people that care. I wish they would understand that "we" don't. If people want to self-destruct that's there business as long as it's not putting a minor or the public in danger or they being supported by the government.

    I have been so SICK of him and his show for years. The only thing of interest to the writer's is sex. Where is a little intelligence once in a while. My DH watches the show. I usually leave the room.

    If "we" didn't care these shows would lose ratings until they stopped talking about it. This is a nation that has adopted a woman named "Snooki" as a character of note. It can't be surprising that talking about someone with an actual career behind him is raking in the ratings - it isn't just the gossip-mongers, but it's also people who have respected his work in the past who are interested.

    Hollywood is a money business - period. Charlie Sheen is more popular right now than he's ever been, for good or for ill. Popularity = Ratings = ad buys = $$$.

    When they stop making money on it, they'll stop talking about it, whatever "it" happens to be. Just right now, it's Charlie Sheen.

    I am really really tired of all the gossip mongers in the media of this country that make what the drugged out, alcohol swigging "celebrities" are doing more important than what the good people in this country do.

    Why is it news? Why should we care? Why do they expect that I am waiting with bated breath to hear what their next outrageous stunt is? Why should I care who they are with or do with them?

    I hate that our culture has become so "celebrity centered" for all the wrong reasons!!! These people are truly losers who are such bad bad influences on our youth. Yet look how the media idolizes and raises them up like they were gods!!!

    MAKES ME SICK!!! (See, you had to get me going!! :shock: :shock: ) :evil: :evil:

    He really is ill, but doesn't see it. I hope his family can get through to him. If not, I fear for him.
