Case of the Mondays: Charlie Sheen Fired from Two and a Half Men

Mar 08, 2011

Welcome to Case of the Mondays, a weekly post that takes a look around Hollywood to see who's having the worst day.

Well, looks like we can officially change the title to One and a Half Men since the ax finally came down today on Charlie Sheen, who in the span of a couple weeks has gone from Disgraced TV Star to The Internet's Favorite Person of the Month to The Guy We're Seriously Sick to Death of By Now.

Let's be honest here, the relationship between Charlie Sheen and CBS has been ridiculously abusive for awhile now, so the fact that CBS is officially firing him shouldn't be all too surprising. The losers in this, however, aside from Sheen (who was making a staggering $2 million per episode) are the fans of the show who don't even get to say their proper goodbyes. Granted, the network has not said whether they'll be canceling the show altogether (only that they've fired Sheen), but you have to admit it'd be hard to replace the guy since he's so integral to the show.

Meanwhile, Sheen has spent his time away from the show by working hard at becoming the internet's sleaziest car salesman, churning out one annoying catch-phrase after another ("winning," "tiger blood"), as well as launching an internet radio show that's about as interesting as the rambling, nonsensical conversation you and your friends had last time you passed the bong around.

One thing is certain: Charlie Sheen ain't going anywhere anytime soon. If you thought nonstop Lindsay Lohan coverage became annoying after 15 minutes, wait until next month when the entire country wants to join together to force a muzzle on Sheen's mouth to stop the outpouring of lunacy. Now there's a #Winning idea if I've ever heard one.
