CBS Renews Two and a Half Men for Season 10

It's official: Two and a Half Men will be back for a tenth season on CBS. We pretty much knew this was coming, but now it's confirmed—the network announced Saturday that the long-running comedy, now in its ninth season, has reached new agreements with series stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones. Ongoing negotiations with the principal cast are likely what prevented the show from earning a renewal several weeks ago, when CBS handed out early renewals to a whopping 15 shows.

Season 10 will the show's second season to star Kutcher as one of the titular men, following the now-infamous firing of Charlie Sheen toward the end of the 2010-2011 season. Kutcher's debut in last September's Season 9 premiere drew 28 million viewers who tuned in to see the changing of the guard, and despite the fact that not all of those curious folks stuck around, Two and Half Men has continued to perform in 2011-2012, averaging 15 million viewers per episode.

That makes five returning comedies for CBS's 2012-2013 season, as Two and a Half Men joins the already renewed How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, and The Big Bang Theory. The network will announce its full 2012-2013 lineup on Wednesday at its Upfront presentation in New York.


Have you been watching Two and a Half Men since Sheen left the show? Will you tune in for Season 10?

They should kill the show. No Charlie, no show. Stopped watching it when they changed the caracter. It was so ridiculous the 9th season.

Yes I have been watching. And I like it. Allthough it's different and I wouldn't compare it to when Charlie was on the show. But Kutcher is making a great job.

Btw is Jake staying on the show as a regular?

Episodes really nailed it with "Pucks!" It doesn't matter if the show is terrible, the mass majority of America will still enjoy it. Maybe 90% of humans are just THAT stupid?

Whoa, someone still watches it? I dropped it after a couple of new Charlie-less episodes. Not only because Kutcher is not working for me, but the writers have lost it.

pfff, I have tried to watch kutcher but after 2 or 3 epi's in season 9, I just had to give it up. When you've got charlie sheen for 8 seasons giving the best comedy ever, it's kinda hard to like kutcher who was better als Kelso in 70's...

I despise this show, regardless of who's in it. I just want it to go away so TV will get just a little bit better.

i'm not an elitist (if that's even possible to be as a TV watcher) so, yes, two and half men is one of the crappy shows that I still watch. But for every crappy show I watch, I make myself stop watching another crappy show...so sorry 2 Broke Girls, I've reached my crappy tv limit,

Checking the guide, apparently I stopped watching sometime during the 4th season. After some 70/80-odd shows the premise got repetitive & Sheen was just playing a parody of himself. Haven't watched it since.

I won't be watching season 10, but then, I haven't watched the other 9, either.

I thought this was okay with Sheen but wow since he left it's become unwatchable.



Kutcher is mediocre as always and Cryer has absolutely no chemistry with him.

Two and a half men was great, but his show sucks without Charly. Alan was never funny to begin with, later he became just plain annoying, after that a parody of himself and now he is the shows leading funny man? Alan isn't funny, he is a pathetic leeching schmuck and nowadays I wanna rip out my toenails when I watch the show and he is on screen. And let's be honest Waldon has his moments but is in no way as funny as Charly. And Waldon grow a pair... Charly couldn't kick Alan out was because they were brothers and that was frustrating, but funny. Waldon however has no reason to keep Alan around. He's a billionaire. He can buy him a simple 3 bedroom apartment, furnish it give him a normal wage income working for one of his companies... and adios Malibu beachhouse for Alan.



I also hate what they have done with the Jake character. He wasn't very bright to begin with and the pothead/stoner thing is cheesy and very lazy character development. I also don't like he's hanging around with that other kid al the time.



Bad call in renewing. It was a bad call to continue without Charly Sheen. Would have been much better to put the money in a new show than to finance this crap.

I don't know if I am going to watch another season!! When they got rid of Charlie Sheen, they should've canceled the show. How many more seasons will we watch Alan be a mooch! It's just gotten to be too much. I don't like Zoe either!! She's dull!! This should be the last season!!!

I have been watching, it's been ok, it's missing something (especially with Ashton's character being in a relationship most of the season) but it's still funny. Honestly though, they need to move characters along and get the show ended this season because it's definitely losing steam as it hits a decade.

I suspect the current ratings are simply because of the completists who wanted to watch every episode expecting that this past season would be the last. But I think the show could suffer a major ratings drop as many of those viewers abandon the show.

15 million people? I think it's the same people who have been watching CBS on Monday nights at 9pm/8pm since 1970.

I stopped watching after the fourth episode of Kutcher. Wont be tuning back in. It's not necessarily just because of Kutcher (although both he and his character are dull), as Cryer and Angus and their respective characters have gotten really crappy as well.

Hmmmmmmmmmm... the way it's progressing they should think about hiring some new writers next season to make it funny again... Though I could just turn off my tv... I really hope Zoey loses her green card (does she have one) and is never to be seen again...

It's not the worst show on TV, still watch it every Monday night.

But they have to get rid of Zoey, I don't think Ashton Kutcher plays a bad role its just the story line right now is boring.

The best thing about this story is that it wasn't written by Tim Surette. Thankfully there are writers at tv.com that don't fight personal vendettas against certain shows and actors they don't like, in their stories.

Two and a Half Men was a good show. For the first 4 season this show was hillarous. Then is went downhill and with the 9th season it reached a low point only a few comedies can achieve. But the show somehow continues to be a hit! Why? Don't ask me.

Have you seen seasons 7 or 8 ? Compared to those, this season was up to par.

Eh, I'm sticking with it. I liked it more with Sheen, but it wasn't really good back then either. Kutcher has grown on me, but Zoe and his ex wife have both been really annoying. And I think the writing has mostly been bad, even for this show, this season.

I think I'm more likely to be tuning out. I still love Alan, I'm starting to hate Walden and Jake and rest except for Berta can be brutally murdered for all I care. I wasn't sure when Season 9 began but now I am, THERE IS NO 'TWO AND A HALF MEN' WITHOUT CHARLIE SHEEN.
