I have to be honest, I thought Two and a half Men was a really stupid show. I saw a few episodes and the wonder that it had gone on for as long as it has is flabbergasting to me.
That said, the one thing I can appreciate about it is the people who worked on the show were able to put food on the table and a roof over their head because it provided their employment. This includes Charlie Sheen, but in his case that roof over his head was made of coked out porn stars.
It wasn't enough for Sheen to be satisfied with being the highest paid actor on television. He needed to be perpetually messed up on drugs too. Now some selfish rant against the network has caused the show to be cancelled for the season, effectively screwing hundreds of people out of work they need because they don't get to make millions for "acting" like an ingracious piece of s**t on camera.
Rather than cancel for the season, I think CBS should just reboot the show with a new cast. I have a few ideas, starting with a very obvious option...
Then there's a choice even more obvious than that...
I call this one "the trans-gender barrier buster"...
This is the best option, but the need for special effects make it cost prohibitive...

Eliot Spitzer welcomes Kathleen Parker's decision to leave the primetime CNN show they co-host, saying that if she's getting paid to spend an hour with him he should've gotten some sex out of it.Add a comment
This is how crappy it is to work for CNN...
Kathleen Parker, the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist who co-hosted CNN's 8 p.m. show, is leaving just five months after the show debuted, the company announced Friday.
"I have decided to return to a schedule that will allow me to focus more on my syndicated newspaper column and other writings," Parker said in a statement.
This is like James Carville canceling an appointment so he can go get a haircut.
I'm sure it wasn't a very pleasant experience working with a man like Eliot Spitzer, who probably was offended being in the presence of a woman who was getting paid spend an hour with him without sex being part of the deal.
My only experience with the show was highlighted in this post from last November, when Rand Paul made Spitzer his Client Number 9 while Parker was probably too busy avoiding the reach of Spitzer under the table to concentrate on having an actual thought to contribute to the show.
So I don't blame her for wanting to leave the last place network in cable news to refocus her work on that 21st century dinosaur we call NEWSPAPERS.
After all, she's got to go where the audience is.Add a comment

A man in Lubbock Texas was arrested...
...late yesterday by FBI agents in Texas on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his alleged purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets.
Check out the story at Right Network
The most shocking part of the story is that the man was caucasion with sandy blond hair, blue eyes, wearing a cowboy hat and was a known Tea Party organizer in the area. See for yourself...
Obviously he beat himself until his skin bruised into a nice olive tone. In fact he be beat himself so bad even his hair bruised black.
Even though he attempted to hide himself from DHS by changing his name to Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari there were a few signs of suspicious activity that got them on to his scent:
He once drank tea at a party
His radio could pick up AM signals
He knew Glenn Beck spelled his name with two "n's"
His racist streak (he once posted on Facebook that the govnerment should heavily scrutinize Arab Muslims for suspected terrorism)
He went around shouting Reagan Akbar
America! F**K YEAH! Hi fives all around! Score one of the good guys, even though liberals run the Department of Justice, and thus have no clue they're the good guys.Add a comment
