High-Ranking CBS Exec Confirms Network Is Worried About Charlie Sheen

Jan 14, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Nina Tassler, CBS entertainment president, spoke with reporters at the TCA press tour in Pasadena, Calif., today and admitted that the network is worried about one of its biggest stars, Charlie Sheen, reports Reuters.

"We have a high level of concern. How could we not?" Tassler said. She added that despite the concerns, the network has no plans to pull its highly rated "Two and a Half Men" off the air.

She told the media, "Charlie is a professional, he comes to work, he does his job extremely well. [But] It is very complicated."

Tassler added that she has "tremendous trust and respect" for Warner Bros., the studio that produces the sitcom. She said she trusts the people at the studio to handle the situation.


  1. This is known as enablement. Hopefully all of these network and studio execs who continue the enablement because of their own greed will not be sorry they didn’t do something.

  2. Rather then shutting down filming, perhaps the show’s writers should write Charlie Sheen out of a few episodes and allow him to go through rehab. Two & A Half Men is an ensemble situation comedy and I think his co-stars can carry the show while he get’s help in getting his personal life together. What Charlie should realize is he is a very talented comedic actor, but he is still human, and as a human he is due to suffer the same physical and psycholgical effects of long term alchoholism as anybody. Take care Charlie, don’t throw away your storybook career.
