False Alarm

Charlie Sheen Stays on Two and a Half Men

Following rumors that he would leave the show, Charlie Sheen will stay on Two and a Half Men, TMZ reported Monday. The actor has reportedly inked a two-year deal to stay on the CBS comedy. Sheen initially announced that he wanted $2 million an episode to stay on the show but Warner Bros. reportedly offered him less than $1 million. Now, TMZ reports, that offer has gone up considerably—and any threats to leave were probably bait for a negotiation. Sheen’s publicist released a statement Monday: “To put a fitting end on the two and one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I'm looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights. I want to thank (CBS Corp. President and CEO) Les Moonves for his support."
