Ashton Kutcher Named Top Paid TV Actor By Forbes Magazine

October 18th, 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 ...

Miley Cyrus Two and a Half Men
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

June 20th, 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.

He te...

Mike & Molly
If the latest TV ratings week was a final exam, CBS would get an A+ and NCIS would graduate at the top of the class. The stalwart once again topped the Nielsen ratings, besting all other scripted and reality programming, even as American Idol geared up for its finale.

'Two And A Half Men' Moving To Thursday Nights

May 17th, 2012 10:35am EDT
Two and a Half Men
CBS had announced that Two and a Half Men won't be returning to Monday nights this fall, and will instead be airing after The Big Bang Theory on Thursday nights to create a comedy block.

Big Bang Theory has mostly failed as a lead-in to other shows on the network (How to be a Gentlemen, Rules of Engagement and Rob all sputtered after the hit comedy). Surprise hit 2 Broke Girls will be moved to Monday to take up the vacated timeslot.

The move could possibly bring 2 and a Half Men higher ratings, as it will no longer compete with ESPN's Monday Night Football in the fall. However, it will ...

Two And A Half Men
Ashton Kutcher must be doing something right, because CBS has renewed its flagship comedy, Two And A Half Men for a 10th season.

The show's stars, Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, will also be getting a bump in pay, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show's viewership is actually up 13% since the highly publicized departure of former star Charlie Sheen, who called the show a "steaming pile of s--t" after he was let go.

Only two comedies are more popular than Men - The Big Bang Theory (#1, CBS) and Modern Family (#2, ABC).

$16 Million Contract Puts Britney Spears On TV's Top Paid List - Behind Judge Judy

May 10th, 2012 11:03am EDT
Britney Spears
Britney Spears is reportedly set to rake in $16 million as a judge on The X Factor, but the incredible amount isn't nearly enough to put her on top of TV's best paid list.

Assuming The X Factor has the same amount of episodes this season (26), Spears would pocket a bit over $615,000 an episode. That makes her the second highest paid per episode in primetime currently - Ashton Kutcher makes $700,000 an episode for Two and a Half Men. She is also far behind predecessor Charlie Sheen's whopping $1.2 million an episode. It would put her ahead of William Petersen's previous salary on CSI ($600,...

In the last episode, Alan reacted to Walden’s decision to have Zoey and Anna stay at the Beach House by having a minor heart attack. Walden felt so guilty that he paid for Alan’s hospital stay, and allowed him to live with him for as long as he needed.

This week, Walden is being very solicitous of Alan, carrying his bags, and worrying about Alan’s health. When they return home from Alan’s second tr...

Two And A Half Men
CBS executives are rumored to be offering Ashton Kutcher $725,000 for each episode of "Two And A Half Men" next season, according to Hollywood.com. That's $25,000 more than he currently makes per episode.

Two And A Half Men
Previously on Two and a Half Men, Zoey and daughter Ava moved in to the Beach House with Walden, while Alan stayed with Lyndsey. Neither man enjoyed their changed circumstances, and couldn’t wait for things to get back to ‘normal.’

As Walden wondered how to tell Zoey that he just couldn’t live with Ava’s energy level, Zoey told him that he had become Ava’s hero, and that he was all she talked about. So Zoey thinks that perhaps it would be a good idea for the two of them to move in permanently.

Alan knocks at the door. He’s back! With suitcase in hand, he’s ready to move back in, but is s...

If Walden wants Zoey and her daughter Ava to move in with him, Alan will have to move out. Since its Spring Break, Walden has the perfect opportunity to propose that Alan stay with Lyndsey for a week, just for a trial period. If Zoey moves in, the situation could become permanent, says Walden, throwing Alan into a panic.

Berta’s not thrilled about having a child around the house either, and says she’ll just take the week off. Walden assures her that Zoey will take care of Ava; there will be no extra work for Berta to do. And Walden thinks that he’d better see what it’s like to live with A...

TV Ratings: 'NCIS' Tops 'American Idol'

NCIS
CBS had a big week. Not only did it claim the top show (‘NCIS’ on Tuesday) but it also had a whopping 16 of the Top 20 shows. Probably the only way other networks survive (*cough NBC cough*) is that CBS viewers tend to skew a bit older.

The good news for FOX was that ‘American Idol’ held steady this week, fending off director competitor ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (good for 6th place) as well as genre competitor ‘The Voice,’ which attracted over 16 million viewers in 4th.

Speaking of ‘Big Bang,’ has anyone noticed that it is starting to outpace its former lead-in ‘Two and a Half Men’? The show ...

Not if you write for Two and a Half Men, you don’t. You dig down deep in your psyche, and try to find an incident in your miserable past where you were so desperate to have sex with a woman that you would put up with literally anything she did, no matter how vile or disgusting.
