Time is up for the ‘longest-running live-action sitcom’ currently on television, as CBS’s ‘Two and a Half’ men has been given the date for its final episode. The series, which is currently on its 12th season, will have aired 262 episodes by the time it finally bows out next year.

Justin Bieber has apparently turned to God following his recent racism blunders.
There’s no better way of proving your penitence than going all out and getting yourself baptised. That’s Justin Bieber’s latest move in the whole racism saga anyway, because what better way to show how sorry you are than to get dunked in some water.
Justin Bieber was allegedly baptised in a bathroom by one of his friends
Bieber actually took the plunge (pun intended) before the videos surfaced and he was in the midst of being extorted. Perhaps he hoped that a baptism would lead to a bit of good karma (conflicting ideologies, but you get where we’re going with this). The baptism allegedly look place in a New York bathroom. As rooms go, they are famed for their spiritual qualities.

Could Charlie Sheen be back for the 'Two and a Half Men' finale?
CBS has announced that the next season of 'Two and a Half Men' will be the show's last, with speculation that Charlie Sheen could re-join the sitcom's cast for the big farewell beginning to ramp up. Entertainment chief Nina Tassler didn't make any promises to The Wrap though suggested there would be lots of surprises.
Charlie Sheen Is Rejoining 'Two and a Half Men'?
"I would like to see whatever Chuck would like to do," Tassler said. "He has assured us that he has a lot of surprises in store. I don't know if that's one of them."

Angus T. Jones has once again put in his two cents about his former show, 'Two and a Half Men'.
When Two and a Half Men began in 2003, Angus T. Jones was just ten years old. The young actor was cast to play Jake, the underachieving nephew of Charlie Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper and son of Jon Cryer’s character, Alan. Angus had been acting since he was 6 years old and had already appeared on several primetime TV shows, including ER and Dinner With Friends.

Despite the controversy on set with Charlie Sheen, which led to him being replaced with Ashton Kutcher, for nine years Angus T. Jones regularly appeared on the show, growing up on screen. In 2010 he became television’s highest paid child star, generating on average $300,000 per episode over the course of two seasons. We can’t imagine that many people would be complaining with a salary like that!

Angus T. Jones is now a devout Christian and beard enthusiast.
Angus T Jones really, really wants you to know that he regrets his work on Two and a Half Men. About a year ago, Jones first spoke out about it in an online video. He was then relegated to a recurring character on Men, but is yet to actually appear in any episodes. Now, the former child star might have gotten himself into even deeper trouble with the show’s production team, speaking about the clash between his values and those displayed on the show.
Let's take a look back to a younger, less bearded Jones.
"It was difficult for me to be on the show and be part of something that was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people," Jones said in an interview with Houston CBS affiliate KHOU. "I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn't OK with it and I was still doing it."
The former child-actor, who branded 'Two and a Half Men' as "filth" now preaches in churches and ministries around the country, as a Seventh-Day Adventist.
Angus T. Jones has been on the beloved US sitcom 'Two and a Half Men' since 2003, and was once one of the highest-paid actors on TV.
But the 20 year-old doesn't have any regrets about walking away from such a lucrative deal.
It has been little over a year since a video emerged online of Jones slamming the show that made him a star, he branded it as "filth" and urged viewers to stop watching.
His 'Two and a Half Men' co-star Jon Cryer came in second on the Forbes Magazine poll
Ashton Kutcher has topped the list of Highest Paid Actors in Television for a second year running, earning an estimated $24 million over the course of June 2012 and June 2013, according to Forbes Magazine. The star of the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men has made most of his money from his role on the Chuck Lorre show, as well as a considerable amount from his role as Steve Jobs in the biopic about the late Apple co-founder.
Like the man he portrayed in the flop biopic, Kutcher also has a keen business sense, and has made some of his millions by investing in a number of emerging businesses. The Jobs actor has stakes in tech companies Airbnb, Foursquare and Path, however it is his role as billionaire Walden Schmitt that has earned him the largest chunk of his impressive yearly earnings. The Forbes estimate does not take into account any of his business earnings, only what he has earned through the entertainment industry.
Kutcher's Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer also made the list, coming in at second with an estimated $21 million in earnings between 2012 and 2013. Angus T. Jones, who is no longer a series regular after a video of him condemning the show as "filth" emerge online, also made the list thanks to his role on the show. Although his stint as a regular on the series has since ended, having recently been replaced by Amber Tamblyn as a series regular, Jones is still likely to make a considerable amount of regular income thanks to the show's syndication.

The Forbes-assembled list has placed the 'Two & A Half Men' star as the highest earner over the last year
Ashton Kutcher may have overseen a significant drop in ratings on Two & A Half Men since it's Charlie Sheen-starring heyday, but that hasn't stopped him from reaping in the cash and becoming the highest paid actor on television. According to the latest Forbes Magazine list, the actor made $24 million over the course of June 2012 and June 2013 from his work on the Chuck Lorre show, making him the top earner on TV.
Kutcher's co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones are both on the list too, with Cryer coming in at number two, earning an estimated $21 million over the course of last year, whilst Jones is seventh with $11 million. With the show now in syndication and looking like it won't be ending any time soon, CBS's cash cow looks as though is will continue being milked by the lead actors for some time to come. Even though this will likely be Jones' final season on the show, he will still benefit financial from the show's syndication.
Ray Romano comes in third, still earning millions from the syndication of Everybody Loves Raymond and for his voice work on the Ice Age films. He also received a hefty paycheque for his story arc on Parenthood.

We'll be seeing a lot more of Charlie Sheen's long lost lesbian daughter.
Actress Amber Tamblyn has been announced to have been promoted to series regular on sitcom Two and a Half Men. Tamblyn appeared in five episodes in season 11 as Charlie Sheen's daughter Jenny but will move to a more permanent standing on the show.
Amber Prepares To Take A More Central Role.
Tamblyn's Jenny will be seen moving to LA to further her acting career and will slot into what's left of her family without Charlie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenny likes everything her father enjoyed, including women. Series co-creator Chuck Lorre said that the addition of a new regular character, and a lesbian at that, will be a welcome change of dynamic for the previously male-dominated CBS comedy.

How will the character of Jenny fit in?
After ten seasons of Two and A Half Men on CBS, public breakdowns from two-out-of-three of the main cast and a high-profile replacement, Chuck Lorre thinks it’s time to address the plot, just to mix things up a bit.
And considering Two and A Half Men can basically be called Three Men, or Three Half Men depending on your take on the comedy, Lorre reckons a 21-year-old lesbian from the Big Apple should just about do it. It might just have to be called Two Men One Woman, as Angus T. Jones is pretty much out for season 11.
"I think it would be great have that voice on the show from a different perspective," Lorre told reporters at TCA. "The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime." Jenny will be Charlie Harper’s – previously played by Charlie Sheen – ‘illegitimate’ daughter.

Angus T. Jones is being replaced with a new leading lady.
CBS are on the hunt for a young actress to play Charlie Sheen's lesbian daughter on Two and a Half Men. Ok, so Sheen left the show some time ago, but the comedy will introduce the "sexy and gorgeous" estranged 21-year-old daughter of Charlie Harper for its 11th season.
The news was confirmed to Entertainment Weekly, with a source saying Charlie's daughter will have recently moved to Los Angeles from New York. The character will effectively replace Jake, played by Angus T. Jones, who will cut down his appearances on the show to focus on attending college.
That's the official line coming out of CBS, though it's clear Jones' role on America's biggest sitcom became untenable after he actively encouraged fans to stop watching the show before of its adult themes.

Get ready for a lady to swoop in and save the day.
With the “Two and a Half Men” cast dwindling as it has been – Angus T. Jones got cut at the end of the last season, there is room for a brand new cast member. Presumably in an effort to keep things fresh, the show’s producers have decided to replace Jones with a lady. The news was first reported by Deadline and so far, there haven’t been any updates on names being considered for the part.
The new addition will be introduced into the story, in a rather convoluted twist, as Charlie Harper’s daughter. Apparently, she’ll show up out of the blue, looking for her father and she will wind up moving in with the bachelors. Yes, ok, not the best storyline, but even the fact that the series is adding a lady as a main character is pretty progressive, in light of previous “Two and a Half Men” history.
Or it could be a desperate ploy to boost viewership in any way possible. The series’ ratings just haven’t been the same since Charlie Sheen’s departure in one final burst of media attention. But while Sheen’s replacement with Ashton Kutcher was somewhat successful, it’s difficult to imagine Two and a Half Men without its oh-so-important half. Plus, Two Men and a Girl just doesn’t sound as catchy. Catchy or not though, the role could be a major opportunity for some budding Hollywood talent. Just wait for the casting rumors to start

The bachelor pad will undergo a makeover.
It’s all changes all the time on this show with the latest being a “Two and A Half Men” lady character. After the departure of Charlie Sheen and the final departure of Angus T Jones, the house would have seemed a little empty. But no worries, for apparently the producers will inject a bit of estrogen to remedy the situation.
Though we would personally deem the show worthy of humane euthanasia at this point, the Two and a Half team has apparently gone for an altogether more complicated approach. According to Deadline, the new season will feature a brand new character, as yet uncast, who will play Charlie Harper's long-lost daughter. (That's Sheen's character). She'll show up at the house looking for her father and eventually move in with the two bachelors.
That certainly puts a new spin on the show’s title. What with no half-man and a brand new lady in the picture, there has to be a more appropriate title for this, But mostly, everyone – fan or not – just misses the show’s glory days. Back when the title really made sense and there was some semblance of humor left. But after Sheen left in a blaze of glory and Jones was booted off soon after for bashing the show, the question remains – even with an interesting female character in the mix, is there any hope for Two and a Half Men.

The two-man show will return this fall, with a helfty pay increase for Ashton Kutcher
The long-running CBS series Two and a Half men has been renewed for its eleventh season, which will see a return of the entire cast, though some appearances will be less frequent. Unsurprisingly, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have signed on to play their characters again for this go round. It’s a pretty safe deal for both of them and quite lucrative, if we may add, considering that Kutcher has now topped the chart for highest paid sitcom star, with a $700 000 per episode deal, as reported by Us Magazine. That’s still less than previous Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s $1.2 million per episode salary, but it isn’t a bad deal at all. Yes, a renewal of the show means that both of its stars will be making bank.
Angus T Jones, who plays Jake, on the other hand, isn’t going to be as involved this season, as his role has been demoted to a recurring character. This is still better than the rumors that he would be getting fired, due to some less than affectionate comments he made towards the show earlier this year, though. There are a number of reasons why his presence on the series could have been decreased. While according to CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler, there are no grudges between Jones and the network, it could be that the relationship is still strained. Additionally, Jones has made comments in the past that he would like to free up some time for college (which seems like a perfectly reasonable decision.) Whatever the reason, the bottom line is that we’ll be seeing less of Jones and presumably more of Kutcher this season. He’s gotta earn that fat paycheck somehow.
Kutcher's days as a celebrity prankster are behind him, as he is now the highest paid actor in TV.
The 'half' in Two and a Half Men won't be returning for a full gig next season
Two and a Half Men, that perplexingly infamous CBS sitcom has been renewed for a new season (hold your groans), but Angus T Jones will not be returning as a series regular. Yes, this once again prompts quips about the missing “half” of the show. Considering that Jones is 19 now though, that’s been missing for a while now and none of the viewers seem to complain. So Jones won’t be a regular, but Studio Warner Bros. is reportedly in talks to get him back as a recurring character on the show, according to Entertainment Weekly. So if you were getting anxious over the lack of Jake Harper (we don’t really see why you would), there’s no need to worry.
Earlier this year there was speculation that Jones might be booted off Two and a Half Men entirely, after a video was leaked on Youtube of him enthusiastically bashing the show and its production team. But CBS apparently decided to be the bigger people (they also probably didn’t feel like reworking the entire series formula) and CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said earlier in January that the conflict had been resolved:
“The kid’s 19 years old,” Tassler said at the time.”I’ve got a 24 year old. Between the ages of 19 and 24 there’s been plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t but the bottom line is cooler heads prevailed. [Jones has] been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and he issued a public apology. At the end of the day, they want him back and he wants to come back and that’s it.”
