Well, they decided they're killing Charlie Sheen's character on Two and a Half Men. That guy who created the show must be really upset. Wants to make sure Charlie Sheen can never return.
There are other ways to do it. Didn't they just switch families, almost without explanation, on Charles In Charge? Charles went away for a couple of weeks and when he came back, the house was sold, a new family moved in, but the old family, as a condition of the sale of the home, required them to hire Scott Baio as their male nanny. That's what somebody told me. I could never stand Scott Baio or Willie Ames, although they did pave the way for Coreys Haim and Feldman.
Scott Baio is a Republican now. I don't think any of his earlier roles were especially embarrassing to a aging conservative. But Willie Ames, now a devout Christian, starred in an Israeli Blue Lagoon rip-off called Paradise. He co-starred with a masturbating chimpanzee.
I still think that everyone on Two and a Half Men should advance in rank. Alan should take on Charlie's role as a degenerate, still less successful than his now late brother. Jake should take on Alan's role as a frustrated would-be degenerate. Then they would need a new third character who would just be slightly confused by it all.
