How CBS is Working Around Charlie Sheen

There are only two unaired episodes remaining of “Two and a Half Men.”

Once they air on the next two Mondays, CBS has to plug-in something in its place. That’s where Charlie Sheen being in rehab is a good thing for “Rules of Engagement.” CBS is ordering two extra episodes of “Rules.”

The network may increase its order for another sitcom, too. And there are always all those “Two and a Half Men” repeats, 150 of them, that CBS can run.

When asked about the financial impact of Sheen’s crisis, CBS issued this statement: “Any immediate programming or financial implications pale in comparison to his long term health, safety and well being.”
