Great news, everybody! Even though the cast of “Two and a Half Men” is only under contract for two more years, we’re guaranteed at least SEVEN more years of America’s favorite sitcom in syndication, thanks to a broken mirror and a new deal from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Let’s go to the awful PR quote:
Said Tribune Broadcasting’s president of programming Sean Compton, “‘When ‘Two and a Half Men’ went on the air over three years ago, it was an immediate game-changer that significantly elevated the performance of our stations, and we have never looked back. This is one of those rare shows — like ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ — that will continue to deliver for decades.” [press release via Deadline]
Huh, I’d never thought of “Two and a Half Men” as a game-changer. But apparently it CHANGED THE GAME. The game of syndicated re-runs, which as anyone can tell you is the most dangerous game of all.
(Side note: I was looking at that picture of Charlie Sheen and I almost typed the name of the show as “Two and a Half Hookers.” But that’s just what Sheen has in his basement.)
