It's been on the air for eight seasons.

That's right, you heard me. Eight. And it has been greenlit for two more, although I guess that is in question now that some guy has apparently gone crazy--I don't know the details; don't really care.

One joke for eight seasons. Shocking might not be the right word. Just sad, really.

My wife tells me I'm half the man I used to be, so I just assumed it was along those lines...

What's the joke? Charlie Sheen?

TERRIBLE show. It makes Rhoda seem funny in retrospect. Maybe even Hangin' With Mr.Cooper.

When the show started it was about a man and his 12 year old son moving in with the man's bother so combined they were 2 and a half men. Now they are sort of three men since the kid has grown up.

Now it's 3 men and that lady who always plays a housekeeper/nanny in TV and movies.

The one joke is that innuendos and double entendre about sex are funny. Which I will not deny. But in the end, it is just one joke, and I'm not sure you need professional writers to come up with them. Or keep them up. It's not hard to do. ... Boobies.

According to Jim was pretty bad. It's one joke was that Jim was a dumb but lovable fucking idiot...with a hot wife.

King of Queens, OTH, I thought had some sharp humor occasionaly. Plus a cast of some pretty good comedic actors.

I am proud to say I've never seen a full episode, 10 minutes was all I could stomach.. How long has According to Jim been on? like 15 or something?

I don't get why Charlie boy feels he's so indespensible. Couldn't they put about anyone in that role? Not like he's writing his lines or something...

Of course, he may have a slight advantage in that, from what little I've seen of the show, it doesn't appear he has to act much - just play himself, really.

(yes, it's a biased opinion, as I'm not fond of it... so sue me...)

A column I read recently commented that Charlie Sheen's performance is remarkable in that many comedic actors play over-the-top versions of themselves in order to create a funny character. Charlie Sheen is perhaps unique in that he plays a toned-down, more normal version of himself to create a funny character.

This seems like a good place as any for me to ask this: Why the hell is everyone talking about Charlie Sheen? For the past three days, I've seen references to Sheen all over the place. Did he do something?

He closed his eyes and cured himself with the power of his mind. He lives in Sober Valley Lodge with his two goddesses. He is a unavailable drug - if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off, and your children will weep over your exploded body.
