A sitcom that was once the highest-rated series on U.S. television has set its end date. “Two and a Half Men” will end its run Feb. 19, after 12 seasons and “more than 260 episodes, several epic behind-the-scenes skirmishes and handing out some of the biggest salaries in TV history,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
Chuck Lorre’s comedy will end with a one-hour series finale. Its 9 p.m. Thursday time slot will be taken over by repeats of “The Big Bang Theory.”
The show was at the center of star Charlie Sheen’s highly public meltdown in 2011, with Sheen being fired from the show and eventually replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Another incident that got a lot of media attention took place in 2012, when, after reportedly converting to Christianity, Angus T. Jones, one of the show’s other stars, called the series “filth” and asked fans to stop watching it.
