Two and a Half Men to wind up soon

The CBS channel made the announcement recently regarding its fall timetable for 2014 to 2015. Two and a Half Men is to pack up its bags and head for the dustbin of history. The Chuck Lorre comedy was quite popular in its heyday but it is not to continue its journey anymore. 

"Chuck Lorre is creating a season-long event. We did very well last year with announcing final season of How I Met Your Mother here, too. Chuck is very psyched about this; he's got some great ideas and very big surprises," CBS executive Nina Tassler announced Wednesday in New York. "We know fans and audiences respond to that and that should really give us a nice boost when we launch our new comedy."

Chuck had a ball with HIMYM and now he is to pen down a novel comedy for the next season. The writer is very much piqued by the flurry of ideas brewing in his mind. The choice to end the Ashton Kutcher/Jon Cryer comedy came after a lot of thought and deliberation. 

In 11th season of Two and a Half Men, "CBS shipped Men from its prime post-Big Bang Theory slot on Thursdays at 8:30 to the 9:30 p.m. slot in a bid to jump-start Greg Garcia's rookie comedy The Millers. In its new home, the comedy notched a series low, before it was flipped with the since-canceled The Crazy Ones and saw its ratings rebound," reported THR.

People want something new in place of the old. The comedy had cost the Warner Bros. Television studios a lot as well. Ashton was being paid to the amount of $700,000 per episode for Two and a Half Men. Now that is a lot of money. Meanwhile, Cryer got even more since his was per half hourly basis.  

Two and a Half Men has had its own foibles. Although it has been the longest comedy to be aired on television, one of its actors was fired after a tiff with Chuck Lorre. This was none other than Charlie Sheen. 

Another former star later on termed the show as a lot of garbage and urged viewers to switch their channels elsewhere. He said that he was a hypocrite for having appeared in it. Later on he felt contrite for the remarks though and excused himself. 

There are several other comedies written by Lorre. They include: The Big Bang Theory, Mike and Molly and Mom. He is a consummate writer and has the ability to tell a good story. Ever word written by Lorre is carved in gold.
