Charlie Sheen Charged WIth A Felony; ‘Men’ Producers Fret Over the Possibility of Jail Time

Feb 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

It’s nervous time for the producers of the hit cash-cow "Two and a Half Men," reports Scott Collins of the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

The star of that show, Charlie Sheen, at a Colorado court proceeding Monday, was charged with felony menacing and misdemeanors for assault and criminal mischief in the Christmas day incident involving his wife.

If Sheen is unavailable at some point to tape "Two and a Half Men," that article says, it could cause major headaches, "because the network and Warner Bros., which makes the show, have banked so heavily on the series, in its seventh year, lasting at least through the 2011-12 TV season. ‘Men’ over the years has become expensive to produce, in large part because of Sheen’s high salary. In 2008, a TV Guide survey ranked him the highest-paid actor on TV, making $825,000 per episode, or nearly $20 million per year."

  1. Maybe Emilio Estevez could fill in for his brother…

  2. Considering the end of the show on Monday maybe it’s time to check him into rehab on the show. Oh yeah and maybe it’s time to cut the “Jail Birds” salary.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smallercheap shirt wholesale than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
