Charlie Sheen called into Philadelphia-based Wired 96.5 Friday morning and confidently said that “Two and a Half Men” will return to CBS. CBS hasn’t released any comment regarding this.
Sheen said on the radio, “Absolutely the gig’s coming back, and I have absolute faith in that. Not hope, because hope is for suckers. I see us back on the air with a few adjustments, and giving the people not only what they want, but what they deserve, which is loyalty.”
He added, “It feels like we’re getting close to something. I don’t want to say what. But it just feels like the worm is turning, it feels like all parties myself excluded are finally waking up. It’s like some hot springs in Middle Earth are finally ready to explode outward and say, ‘Here is it, here it is, embrace this man, embrace this man.’”
Sheen was asked if Chuck Lorre would be glad about his return since CBS canceled the remaining eight episodes of the high-rated comedy show after Sheen’s controversial statements about its show runner Lorre. Sheen answered, “Well, hello, duh. Figure that one out.”
This interview might be only the beginning since Howard Stern recently appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and said that he had proposed the idea of “Charlie Radio, 24 hours a day,” and now it’s happening. Sirius XM is actually launching a station devoted entirely to Charlie Sheen. According to a statement, they confirmed Friday that the channel will “take listeners behind the headlines, exploring the media frenzy/media reaction, as well as the medical, psychological, psychiatric and pop-culture and celebrity angles. Additionally, through a recap of news coverage, it will offer a timeline of recent events” and includes “breaking news, facts, fallout and career implications.” The channel is called “Tiger Blood Radio,” a 24-hour, limited-run channel dedicated to Charlie Sheen, which will run from Saturday at 6 a.m. ET to Sunday at 6 a.m. ET on Sirius channel 108 and XM channel 139.
