When Lorre is at a party thrown by CBS […]Read On »

Jones, Conchatta Ferrell, Holland Tayler Writers: Don Reo & Jim Patterson, story by Chuck Lorre & Eddie Gorodetsky Director: James Widdoes Network: CBS Original Telecast: Sept. 27th, 2012 Now I can honestly say that I have given Ashton Kutcher more than a fair shot at salvaging TWO AND A HALF MEN. However, as his second season with the show begins (and the tenth overall), there is still a noticeable void in the show that can never be replaced by any actor. As one of the few who didn’t quite understand how Charlie Sheen […]Read On »
