Kutcher Sets Record for CBS Sitcom

Ashton Kutcher’s debut in the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” on Monday was seen by 27.7 million people. The Nielsen company says that’s more than any other episode in the first eight seasons, when Charlie Sheen was the star.

The sitcom’s previous best came in May 2005 following the final episode of “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

Sheen’s character was killed when he was hit by a subway train inParis.

Hours before Monday night’s premiere, co-star Jon Cryer commented on the new show while receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “I was nervous about it, but we’ve done five episodes so far and the audience reaction has been so amazing that I feel really confident. The writing has been amazing and uhh, Ashton is such a great comic presence to work with, so we’ve got a whole new level for the show.”
