Warner Bros. fires Charlie Sheen
Billions lost - to save Chuck Lorrie's reputation?


Warner Bros. announced that it has dropped the actor from Two and a Half Men.
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services
from ‘Two and a Half Men’ effective immediately,” the studio said in a statement.
No decision has been made on the future of the series. CBS still has a deal in place
with the studio for a ninth season of Men, the most-watched comedy on television.
Sheen gave the following quote to TMZ: "This is very good news. They continue to be in
breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because
now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshisc— again and I never
have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
Sheen’s departure caps a volatile week in which he went on the defensive after Warner
Bros. TV and CBS announced they were canceling production for the remainder of the
season due to “the totality of Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition.”

First, do you have any idea how much money that show makes?
Reruns sell for $1M an episode in Los Angeles and New York, so one can assume they
get $700K per episode in Houston, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston etc.

In Tulsa, the show is on 3-4 times per day so I assume it's that way everywhere so it's
possible that show is making $30M per day for Warner Brothers so when Charlie claims
to be special, who's got the standing to tell him he's not?

Second, Charlie IS the show - he can't be replaced.

Third, if Charlie had a decent lawyer, he's probably going to get paid even if he's
not working - and that would be funny if it's true.  They said they fired him due to
"the totality of Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition" which doesn't sound
like legal grounds to me.

Charlie said many times that he was "ready to work," but that producer Lorrie told him
"We don't have any scripts written," so how did Charlie's actions shut down the show?

I'll bet I've heard 1,000 lies told about Charlie Sheen in the last week. 
America's whore press did a total "Number Six" on Charlie and if they can
screw the highest paid actor in the world, I guess screwing nobodies like me
and you would be really easy.
