Ashton Kutcher isn’t taking over the role of playboy Charlie, he’s been written in as a new character, so who know how this could end up rebooting the comedic aspect of the series?
CBS expects Ashton Kutcher to bring in huge ratings when he joins Two and a Half Men next season, the network’s CEO Les Moonves said Thursday.
“We’re going to have a fun fall,” he added, upbeat about the turnaround after Charlie Sheen‘s embarrassing departure due to a feud with the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.
When asked about the network’s advertising revenue, Moonves said they are expecting “very strong double digit” ad price growth. “It’s a good time to be us,” he said confidently.
Actually, if I were Ashton Kutcher, I’d be nervous as hell right now. The upside for Ashton, regardless if the rating are big or take a dive, he will earn roughly $20 million for a full season of Two and a Half Men.
