UPDATE, 6:30 PM PT: We've just received word that negotiations have concluded, marking That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher's return to television after a brief movie career. He is replacing Charlie Sheen in Two And A Half Men. The deal made sense for series producer Warner Bros which already had an overall with Kutcher's Katalyst production banner.

Oh.
Crazy and drugged out or not, Charlie Sheen has always been far more watchable than Kutcher was or ever will be.

So we say hello to Aston Kutcher and Goodbye to Two and A Half Men. ( hey Ashton & Angus could only add up to 1 man collectively!)

I'd rather see Kutcher any day over slimy Sheen. Sheen's on a downward spiral of his own making.

Kutcher was great in The Butterfly Effect. He also comes across as very supportive of and friendly toward women. I haven't watched this show, but if he's in it, I may give it a whirl on hulu.

Plus he's cute. You just want to shoot a peaball at him to get his attention.

Is that what they're calling it nowadays?

I'm not a fan of Kutcher at all but I have to confess I actually liked NO STRINGS ATTACHED in spite of myself. At this point anything is better than Sheen who just has no business doing any acting by now.
"Some people can thrive and bloom living life in a living room, that's perfect for some people of one hundred and five. But I at least gotta try, when I think of all the sights that I gotta see, all the places I gotta play, all the things that I gotta be at"

Kutcher repels me from seeing any movie/project he is in. I personally hated The Butterfly Effect and I tried to like it. Same for A Lot Like Love. I don't get his appeal, even as somebody who still watches That 70's Show re-runs.

The Hugh Grant rumors honestly would have gotten me to watch for curiosity's sake.

"Kutcher repeals me"

A law can be repealed, but probably not you.

From Ike Barinholtz' (hilarious) Twitter feed:

"So are they going to re-name it "One and a Half Men and That Twat From the Camera Commercials?"
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

He's going to be on Two and a Half Men, nom, not Cougar Town.

No interest in either TV show, but I'll watch once when he's in the new show.

Following the leadership of his wife, he's taken a stand against the trafficking of women and is deserving of appreciation and attention. He has an upbeat personality and quirky sense of humor. Curious to see what personality type he'll be in this new show and how it will work.

I agree. It's really brave and going out on a limb to take a stance against the trafficking of women. Reason enough to watch the show.

The only thing I can figure is Kutcher will play Charlie's illegitimate son who has finally tracked down his "Baby Daddy" and Charlie has fled to Parts Unknown.

(always wanted to see Parts Unknown...)

Major bump, but Charlie Sheen says that he's tired of pretending that Ashton Kutcher and the show don't suck.

Is this show still on? And if so, why?

It's still on because huge numbers are still watching. That's why Sheen has suddenly slagged it off, he's annoyed that it did not loose viewers after he went, in fact quite the opposite.

Ashton Kutcher is wonderful especially since he takes off his shirt in every episode so far. Without fail.

Kutcher is very charming and funny, and not disgusting like Sheen. However, Cryer's character has become a loathesome troll.

Charlie apologized to Ashton, but I doubt if he means it:

"Dear Ashton-
My bad.
I was disrespectful to a man doing his best.
I got excited and threw you into a crossfire.
The rest of my statement I stand behind.
You, however, deserve better.
Safety in your travels good sir.
- The “late” Charlie Harper"
