Moonves is reportedly in talks with Warner Brothers — the studio that fired him — to bring Sheen back to the hit comedy.
“Moonves told Chuck Lorre that he should ‘let us handle Charlie,'” an inside source told Radar. “Moonves wants to get the show back on the air. He’s all for it. He says certain people need to forget anything and everything Charlie’s done recently and just move on with the business at hand.”
And what about the now-tenuous relationship between Sheen and Two and a Half Men creator Lorre?
“The core issue is, as [Moonves] put it, the volatile relationship between Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre. He believes that if CBS and Warner Bros TV honchos can find a way to get Chuck and Charlie to speak again, cooler heads will prevail,” the source revealed.
What can we say? Money talks, and Two and a Half Men is more popular than ever.
While we’d love to see more of the hit show, we’re really unhappy with Moonves’ willingness to forgive and forget so quickly. It’s showing teens that they can bash their bosses and get away with it — as long as they’re bringing in the bucks.
