Chuck Lorre Pleased With CBS’ Plans for ‘Men,’ ‘Big Bang’

Mar 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Chuck Lorre, creator of “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory,” said he’s “enthusiastic” about the prospect of multiyear renewals for his two CBS comedies.
“It’s a remarkable thing to have happen,” Mr. Lorre told TelevisionWeek Tuesday. “Everyone involved in the show gets to think long-term as opposed to year-to-year. It allows people to plan a life when you get this kind of support.”
Web site Zap2It.com broke the news Monday afternoon that CBS and Warner Bros. Television are deep into conversations on a two-year “Bang” pickup and a three-year “Men” extension. CBS and Warner Bros. aren’t commenting, and Mr. Lorre cautioned that the renewals aren’t quite in the bag.
“They’re still negotiating points. They haven’t closed the deals,” he said.
Assuming the renewals do happen, Mr. Lorre said he expects all of his key cast members to stay with their respective shows.
“Everyone’s having a good time,” he said.
So what do locked-in deals mean for the creative direction of the shows?
“It allows me to worry on a grand scale,” Mr. Lorre said.
It also means “Two and a Half Men” co-star Angus T. Jones will be 18 years old by the time “Men” reaches the end of its potential new three-year deal. Mr. Lorre, however, has no plans to change the name of the show to “Three Men.”
“As Angus gets older and grows taller, Charlie and John will naturally shrink with age,” he said. “So the cumulative number is still two and a half.”

  1. If they were smart, they’d cut that fatass bad actor Jones loose and put him in a kid’s fat camp where he belongs! Once they attempt to save his life, THEN put him in acting school. What a P.O.S. he is!

  2. I disagree with you Cayden. Jones is definitely leaner now that he’s taller — you haven’t taken a close look lately.

  3. Your Google info is BS. I am sure that it is not too difficult to determine if you are related to Peter Lorre.

  4. Who cares about the kids weight, he gets the best lines, face it! he’s a riot!

  5. I’m excited to be finally posting online after all these years. There really is no mystique (sp) about it, is there? I just dropped by your blog and had to write something. I’m a recent college grad, journalism major if you must know, and I absolutely love the art of photography. I’ve got my site up but it’s nothing to brag about yet. None of my stuff’s been posted. Soon as I figure out how to do that, I’ll spend the day posting my best pictures. anyways just thought I’d drop a line. I hope to return with more substantial stuff, stuff you can actually use. SPG

  6. You should write a recommendation of websites for people who enjoyed this. I came across your site last week when I was browsing, unfortuneatly I’m not really into the blog thing. I don’t think it’s because I do not fancy blogs, but probably because I’m slightly behind to them.
