Charlie Sheen wants back on 'Two and a Half Men'

Actor tells Letterman he'll do one last episode but insults show and CBS

Monday night on "Late Show With David Letterman," Charlie Sheen said he wants to appear on the final "Two and a Half Men" episode, whenever that tapes.

"I would like to go back," he said.


Bing: More about Charlie Sheen | 'Two and a Half Men'


And why not? Sheen's been the sitcom's 800-lb. gorilla ever since Ashton Kutcher stepped into his shadow last year. Introducing Charlie Harper's ghost wouldn't be pack quite the punch of Bob Newhart's awakening next to Suzanne Pleshette on the final "Newhart." But it would be must-see.

Well, one of the reasons why not revealed itself when Letterman pointed out to Sheen that his character on the show is dead, and Sheen then replied: "But so is the show."

Sheen -- who famously melted down while feuding with "Two and a Half Men" executive producer in 2011 -- then did his best to backpedal. With markedly less sincerity, he said "they're doing the best they can" and that Kutcher "does a great job."

Check out the footage:

Sheen noted that he hadn't promoted his new FX sitcom, "Anger Management," on Letterman until now because of a ban imposed by CBS.

"It's nice to be back in the CBS family -- even as a foster child," he said, adding: "They're nice until they fire you."

Would you watch Sheen's return to "Two and a Half Men"? And do you think it could happen without Sheen shooting himself in the foot first?

"Two and a Half Men" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Some how rose had something to do with it. Remember when she came back from England she had him like a zombie for 2 weeks.

Why not have it be almost like Hamlet? Where Charlie is the ghost, Ashton is Claudius, the little boy could be Horatio who is the only one that lives after they all somehow die in a failed revenge plotted by Alan (Hamlet). It could make for a darn interesting show since a modern spin on the same plot of Hamlet would fit perfectly for this show.

Charlie sheen is the one who made two and a half  success with out him the show sucks  Ashton Kutche  is playing and being gay we wan't a womanizer not gay. This is two and a half men not two and a half  gay .

I just started to watch the show and i am in 3rd season. I found that two and a half man would be incomplete without charlie sheen. His appearence make a brilliant show in any episode. I cannot imagine the show without charlie. So it would be great if CBS brings charlie back to the show.

he can come back in an episode as ghost that just alan can see

I think sheen could come back, he could just have the show kinda go like this, he pushed another guy infront of the train pretending it was Charilie Harper, and he has just changed his name and been hiding out in another country. lol

I would definitely look forward to seeing Charlie reappear, even if it's as a ghost. That show hasn't been the same since he left and the only reason I watch is John Cryer. He honestly makes the show. Ashton Kutcher? Never really been a fan.

Hate to admit it..goes against my better judgement...still a fan of Charlie Sheen...maybe I should go into rehab?

It's nice to know that you have someone writing comentary on a show that doesn't even realize when it airs. Two and a Half Men has been airing on Thursday at 8:30 ET/PT for months now.

The show gets better ratings now than it did with Charlie. That's a fact, and it speaks volumes. The show has a different dynamic now, but it's still the same writers and it's still as funny as it ever was. Nobody needs Charlie Sheen, and I think that really bugs him.
Jan 17, 2013 2:06AM
I'd watch it to see how he come back, even as a ghost in the end. It would be funny.

I LOVE the show. If you don't like it, CHANGE THE CHANNEL. But don't wish it gone just because YOU don't like it!

I like the show MUCH BETTER with Ashton on it. Charlie Sheen is a ****, and they should never let him back.

Charlie Sheen should star in a sitcom about a bad boy star who had it made until the drugs, women and alcohol turned him into a has been. He would be a natural.

charlie sheen-unbelievable. the man who has gone the furthest on the least talent and the most decadent, self indulgent dysfuntional personality in show business. sounds like sour grapes to me. i cant believe how people still want to listen to anything he has to say. i am also amazed he hasnt managed to kill himself when so many who are more talented have.

It was on it's last leg before Charlie left. Cancel it, period.

Charlie could come back on the show. they could say he went to rehab and Rose went along with it saying he died because they didnt know how long he would be gone. she was in love with Charlie she would have done anything for him. They really need to bring Charlie back. I havent watched the show since they fired him. The show has not been the same since they fired him. CB needs to get over the hard feelings and get the show back to how it was. That doesnt mean Charlie has a right to do what he did again, but if I remember he did apoligize. two wrongs dont make a right.
