CBS Wants Their Men Back
Charlie Sheen is winning after all. According to inside sources, CBS is realizing the show must go on. Radaronline.com is reporting that the trolls at the network have no problem turning a blind eye to Sheen's crazy behavior, especially if it means him returning to the cash cow sitcom. While the folks at CBS and Warner Brothers may be scrambling in the wake of the Two and a Half Men fallout, it's business as usual for the drug-and-sex addicted actor who's taking his show on the road. Sheen will perform live with at least 20 concert dates and rake in at least $7 million, which doesn't even include merchandising. In addition, he's suing Men creator and arch nemesis Chuck Lorre, as well as Warner Brothers, for a whopping $100 million. Despite all of the drama surrounding the comedy show, CBS realizes that nobody, including John Stamos and Rob Lowe, can fill Sheen's big shoes, unstable as they may be. Warner Brothers fired Sheen after his media blitzkrieg where he launched a verbal assault on everybody from Lorre to Warner Brothers to co-star Jon Cryer. Now, it appears CBS is in serious talks with Warner Brothers to get Sheen back in the saddle. CBS head honcho Les Moonves is said to be working overtime to get the 45-year-old actor back. An insider tells Radaronline.com, "Moonves told Chuck Lorre that he should 'let us handle Charlie.' Moonves wants to get the show back on the air. He's all for it. He says certain people need to forget anything and everything Charlie's done recently and just move on with the business at hand." Sheen is going to have the last laugh after all.
