Charlie Sheen was rushed to the hospital on Monday, in what's being described as an extremely severe case of food poisoning.

According to Gossip Cop, an emergency call was placed to the fire department (but not 911, curiously) around 11:00 PM on Monday night, sending first responders to Sheen's LA home. He was treated there, but the paramedics also took Sheen to a hospital shortly afterward.

"Just to be on the safe side, he went to the hospital," Jeff Ballard, Sheen's representative, said to People. "They checked him out, hydrated him and sent him on his way. He was back home in bed 90 m...

Why Wasn't Charlie Sheen In The 'Two And A Half Men' Finale?

Chuck Lorre Explains Why Charlie Sheen Didn't Appear In 'Two And
Charlie Sheen was offered a cameo in the "Two and A Half Men" finale, but the actor decided not to accept the offer.

The hit show ended its final, twelfth season on Thursday, and fans hoped Sheen would make a surprise appearance on the episode even though his character Charlie Harper was killed in France.

Creator Chuck Lorre had hoped Sheen would return to the series and centered the episode on Charlie, whose brother, played by Jon Cryer, discovered he didn't actually die but was kidnapped by his stalker-turned-wife, Rose, who imprisoned him in a pit in her basement for four years.

Charlie Sheen To Appear On 'Two And A Half Men' Series Finale?
Ashton Kutcher has sparked rumors that Charlie Sheen will be making an appearance on the series finale of "Two and a Half Men."

During an interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Friday, Kutcher said he read the script for the final episode, and the daytime talk show host asked if Sheen would be coming back.

First he shrugged and then explained: "Here's the thing. If you're working on the Warner Bros. lot, if there's sirens, come save me," Kutcher warned.

"So Charlie comes back," DeGeneres pressed.

"I didn't say that," Kutcher replied.

Sheen was fired in 2011 following a media bli...

Charlie Sheen Eyeing Return To 'Two And A Half Men'
Charlie Sheen is expressing interest in returning to his former series "Two and a Half Men," despite the fact that CBS Entertainment has no plans for him to come back to the long-running sitcom.

In a story published in TV Guide, Sheen stated he is in discussions with Warner Bros. Television for a return to the show. He revealed, "We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense." He also explained that he would like to be included in the series' final episode.

A representative from CBS has denied the report and CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler most recently revealed at the TCA ...

Charlie Sheen Showers Himself In Cash For ALS

Charlie Sheen Leads A Long List Of Celebs Taking The Ice Bucket
If you haven't yet heard about the "ice bucket challenge" going on to benefit ALS, then chances are you've been living under a rock for the last two weeks.

The social media craze, which actually began months ago (more on that later), has been sweeping the nation all in the name of raising money and awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The challenge is simple: someone "nominates" you and two others to take the challenge next and then dumps about a five-gallon bucked of ice water over their own head. Those nominated can either accept the...

Ashton Kutcher And Jon Cryer To Marry In 'Two And A Half Men'

7/17/2014 9:03pm EDT
Ashton Kutcher
The two men in Two and A Half Men are looking to tie the knot in the upcoming and final season of the show – and there could be a new "half man" involved, as well.

CBS program chief Nina Tassler was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour when she revealed one of the season's plots. Ashton Kutcher's Walden seeks to adopt a child after facing a health crisis, but he finds it difficult to do so as a single man.

At some point, Walden becomes so enamored with the idea of adoption that he and Alan (Jon Cryer) decide to have a false gay marriage so the adoption can go through. A...

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May Not Work

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May No
Now that all the big networks have revealed what they’ll be showing us this fall, let’s take a look at what may or may not work.


ABC is essentially playing it safe, and keeping Sunday Night intact. American Crime will swap for Resurrection at midseason. Resurrection was a buzzy drama that started seeing a ratings decline. Not waiting till midseason is probably a smart move. You don’t want to lose any more audience. It’s not a winning strategy, but ABC just doesn’t want to be in last place.

NBC has football, another super safe move. CBS is shaking things up, banishing Amazing Race...

'Two And A Half Men' To End Following 12th Season

5/14/2014 8:30pm EDT
Two And A Half Men
CBS has officially announced that hit sitcom Two And A Half Men will come to an end following its 12th season.

Network bosses renewed the show for a 12th season back in March, and president Nina Tassler revealed the news on Wednesday, saying that creator Chuck Lorre has big plans for the show's final storyline, calling it a "season long event."

"He's very psyched about this. He's got some great ideas in store and some very big surprises," Tassler said in a statement.

"Two And A Half Men" debuted in 2003 with Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones as the title trio, but that changed ...

Angus T. Jones 'Apologetic,' But Doesn't Regret Blasting 'Two An
Angus T. Jones has called himself a "paid hypocrite" for his role on Two and a Half Men, which he famously branded as "filth" back in 2012.

Jones was interviewed by a Houston news channel after he visited the town as part of a church outreach. Now growing a scraggly beard, the former actor says he was a hypocrite for being paid to make fun of real-world problems.

He told KHOU, "That was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people. I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn't OK with it and I was still doing it."

Jones also said of his words toward...

CBS Renews A Ton Of Shows

The Good Wife
CBS issued renewals to NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI, Criminal Minds, Person Of Interest, Elementary, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, 2 Broke Girls, The Millers, Mom, Mike and Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Undercover Boss, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours. Add to that the renewal of The Big Bang Theory, and CBS just renewed a whopping 20 shows.

Not being picked up, but still not cancelled, are The Mentalist, Intelligence, Hostages, and The Crazy Ones. I would definitely rule out Intelligence and Hostages. Both failed to grab huge audiences. I think The Mentalist will prob...

Charlie Sheen Tells Ashton Kutcher To 'Quit Barfing On My Show' In Twitter Rant

1/7/2014 5:03pm EST
Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen is back to his ranting ways on Twitter, and this time his target is the man who replaced him on Two and a Half Men, Ashton Kutcher.

It all began on Sunday when Sheen decided to congratulate ex-costar Jon Cryer with, "hey Jon!!! u r a GENIUS!!! I effin love and MISS YOU old pal! Q; who's your lame side-kik? c  #NiceTryCanonBoy #CH." He then attached a photo of Cryer beside Kutcher in a CBS promo.

Ashton, of course, is the face of Nikon cameras. We'll assume Charlie was being wrong on purpose for added insult. The #CH refers to Sheen's deceased character on the show, Charlie H...

Fall 2013 TV Report (So Far)

10/5/2013 2:06pm EDT
Sleepy  Hollow
Here’s how the Fall TV season has been shaping up.


ABC doesn’t have a lot to celebrate about. Once Upon A Time and Revenge are both down season-to-season, yet up from last season’s finales. So, really, you could say they are even for the night. Their new drama, Betrayal, however is a disappointment. Low ratings. Does ABC have anything ready to replace Betrayal though? They’re already definitely going to cancel the much lower rated Lucky 7 (an almost certainty), can they afford to axe two shows?

CBS has a nice strong lineup of returning shows, all performing well. FOX’s shows are ...

2013 Fall TV Preview: The Returning Shows On The CW & CBS

9/4/2013 6:00pm EDT
The CW and CBS are complete opposites. The CW shouldn't be in business, and CBS is THE business. The CW aims for teenagers to lose their sh!t on social media. CBS aims for the median age of the people in my office. I've never understood the Blue Bloods audience more than in the last year. My interest in The CW is odd and possibly unhealthy. I'm endlessly fascinated with its shows and attractive actors. I'll watch Reign just for Adelaide Kane. I'm not endlessly fascinated by CBS. CBS lulls me to sleep. I never wrote about Elementary's "Pilot" because I went to sleep mid-episode. I never watc...

Ashton Kutcher Is The Highest Paid Actor On Television

8/21/2013 6:00pm EDT
Ashton Kutcher
His new movie "Jobs" may have left critics unimpressed, but Ashton Kutcher is laughing all the way to the bank. Why? He's the higest paid actor on television.

Kutcher joined "Two and a Half Men" after Charlie Sheen left in 2011. He makes a whopping $750,000 per episode, earning him the title of the highest paid comedy actor on TV, according to TV Guide.

To put that into perspective, Kutcher earns about $34,000 a minute (based on the 22 typical minutes of a sitcom), points out Vanity Fair. However, that's still less than Sheen's $1.2 million per episode at the height of his time on the sho...

Amber Tamblyn has been cast as Charlie Sheen's long-lost lesbian daughter in the upcoming season of "Two And A Half Men." She will replace Angus T. Jones as a regular on the show. Earlier this year, Jones urged viewers to stop watching the series so he would no longer have to work on the show. He later apologized for his comments.

Only five months after calling “Two and a Half Men” "filth" and urging viewers to turn it off, Angus T. Jones will no longer be a regular on the hit TV series.

Although CBS renewed the show for an 11th season, with stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer each signing new one-year contracts, former child star Jones will reportedly only be filming an occasional guest-star appearance.

Several months ago Jones made headlines by making a testimonial video for the religious organization Forerunner Chronicles. In the online film, he urged viewers to stop watching the series so he would no longer have...

Ashton Kutcher
CBS has renewed Two and a Half Men, ensuring the long-running comedy show will get an 11th season. Star Ashton Kutcher has gotten a big raise, as well.

Kutcher will be making $700,000 an episode, according to Us Magazine (that's still less than Charlie Sheen's $1.2 million per episode at the height of his time on the show).

Further, Angus T. Jones has not been offered a full-time contract as of yet. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two sides are "working on a deal," but producers may be looking to slowly work Angus out of the show with a part-time role. Jones infamously bashed the...

Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff will be returning to the small screen when she stars as Ashton Kutcher's love interest in the season finale of Two and a Half Men.

According to E!, Duff will be playing Stacey, who catches the eye on Kutcher's Walden. However, in a comedic twist, he ends up being much more attracted to Stacey's grandmother, played by Marilu Henner. The finale is set to air May 9th.

Currently, there has been no announcement on whether Duff or Henner will appear in following seasons.

The appearance by Duff is her second on TV this year in what appears to be her return to acting after the birth ...

Charlie Sheen: 'I Was Doing Too Much Testosterone Cream'

Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen is convinced testosterone cream is to blame for his highly-publicized 2011 meltdown.

The actor staged a series of bizarre media interviews and an ill-fated comedy tour after a public feud with bosses of his hit TV show Two and a Half Men led to them firing him over his erratic behavior.

Sheen has vehemently denied allegations alcohol and drugs were the root of his problems as he attempted to recover from the loss of his show, and now he confesses he believes a topical solution he used to boost his energy levels and libido was the cause.

He tells Katie Couric, "I think I ...

Angus T. Jones Returns To 'Two And A Half Men'

Angus T. Jones
Angus T. Jones is heading back to Two And A Half Men after he publicly trashed the hit sitcom in a taped religious rant last November.

The 19-year-old star's role as Jake Harper was thrown into doubt when he branded the series "filth" in a Forerunner Christian Church video testimony, which went viral when it appeared online. The show's executive producer and creator Chuck Lorre now reveals he spoke with Jones about the comments, and insists the teen is still part of the Two and a Half Men family.

Jones has enjoyed less screen time in the current 10th season due to his character joining ...

11/28/2012 9:39am EST
Two And A Half Men
After publicly trashing his hit sitcom "Two And A Half Men" and calling it "full of filth," teenage actor Angus T. Jones has apologized to his colleagues.

Jones, 19, plays Jon Cryer's on-screen son Jake Harper on the CBS drama and has become increasingly involved with his local church. In a video for the Forerunner Christian Church he pleaded with fans to stop watching the show.

However, it appears the actor has had a change of heart. In a statement Jones praises the series' executives and apologizes for disrespecting them.

He says, "While I cannot address everything that has been said o...

The 19-year-old star has hit headlines for publicly trashing his hit sitcom Two And A Half Men in a taped rant, which emerged online on Monday. In the bizarre footage, posted by the Forerunner Christian Church, Jones insists the show is full of "filth" and pleads with fans to quit watching for their own good.

God-Fearing Angus T. Jones Tells People To Stop Watching 'Two And A Half Men'

Angus T. Jones
Angus T. Jones earns a reported $350,000 per episode of "Two And A Half Men," but that hasn't stopped the actor from slamming the show and biting the hand that feeds him.

The 19-year-old actor has risked the wrath of series creator Chuck Lorre and branded the CBS series "filth."

Jones, who has played Jon Cryer's on-screen son Jake Harper since the series premiered in 2003, has been getting increasingly involved with his local church and spending more time reading up on Christianity and the bible. The more he learns about religion, the more he despises what he does.

Ashton Kutcher Named Top Paid TV Actor By Forbes Magazine

10/18/2012 9:59am EDT
Ashton Kutcher
Charlie Sheen can't be too happy right now -- his replacement on hit CBS comedy Two And A Half Men has just passed him as the highest paid actor on TV.

Ashton Kutcher, who pulled in a cool $24 million since joining the show last year, has earned his way to the top spot according to Forbes magazine.

Sheen topped last year's list with nearly double what Kutcher pulled in, $40 million.

Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano tied for second place, raking in $18 million each despite not having any shows on the air. Laurie's House finished up in May; while Romano's show, Men Of A Certain Age, got the axe ...

CBS has released a handful of stills from Miley Cyrus' guest appearance on Two and a Half Men, and it seems the show will be banking on the former Disney star's sex appeal.

In the episode, she plays the daughter of one of Walden's (Ashton Kutcher) friends. When she comes to town to crash at his home, he begins to feel much older than he used to.

Stills from the episode feature Cyrus in a range of scandalously-clad outfits, including a few situations where she appears to be attempting to seduce Walden.

The episode, titled You Know What the Lollipop is For, will air October 18th on CBS.

Charlie Sheen Blames Dave Chappelle & A Hernia For Loss Of 'Two And A Half Men' Job

6/20/2012 8:51am EDT
Charlie Sheen
What really caused Charlie Sheen to lose his job on "Two and a Half Men?" The actor blames comedian Dave Chappelle for a stomach hernia that eventually led to his 2011 meltdown.

Last year Sheen feuded with sitcom bosses and CBS executives after he was hospitalized following an all-night party. After a very public war of words, the actor was released from his contract.

Now Sheen has revealed the hospital visit that kickstarted the public meltdown had nothing to do with partying too hard, but was due to a hernia injury he suffered while watching a hilarious sketch featuring Chapelle.
