Two and Half Men: More Sheen With Ashton Than Charlie

Sheen - beautiful; shining.

That being said, everyone in the world followed Charlie Sheen's downward spiral from a top-paying position in the television and movie industry to being a tiger-blooded warlock rock star from Mars.  The question for the time then wasn't "How will Charlie Sheen survive without 2.5 Men?"  The real question was "Will 2.5 Men survive without Sheen?"

After Charlie Sheen was fired (there's a big surprise...)  everyone wondered who would replace him.  Rumors were abound on the internet:  John Stamos from Full House, Jerry O'Connell from Funny or Die, and Donny Osmond. However, there then began a huge rumor surging throughout the World Wide Web, and a dear friend from the 70's would join the cast; someone we never thought of.

Ashton Kutcher would be coming in as a new character to fill the void left by Charlie Sheen.  After playing in numerous successful comedies and playing the ever-so-famous Kelso from That 70's Show, it should have been clear that Ashton would be one of the best comedians to take the spot.  After all, with almost 8 million Twitter followers and even more fans on other social media outlets, it should have been clear that with Kutcher on board, the show would be nothing but winning.

Millions tuned in to the premiere episode to see just how Ashton would fare.  It's clear after four episodes that Ashton's still got his ground in comedy, and Charlie isn't the only one with Adonis DNA.

All of Ashton's jokes are timed just right, and he brings a fresh breath of a different kind of comedy to the set of Two and a Half Men.  The show continues to do really well with viewers, and it keeps getting better each week. John Cryer and Ashton play brilliantly off each other, and it seems like I'm actually watching someone's daily life.

I applaud Mr. Kutcher for his amazing performance, which can only go up from it's already high point.  It's clear that Ashton has the sheen to keep the Sheen-less comedy better than ever! Keep bringing it to the Two and a Half Men set and T.V. sets everywhere, Mr. Kutcher.  The audience is listening.
