    This show sucks as hell! People who say this is better then Two and a Half Men are color blind, have no taste or simply are blind to the fact that 2,5 men season 9 was just as good for most of the time then the previous seasons.

    I don’t know what the haters are talking about (Including Will-I-Am if that is the real one that does music) But this is a good show. The only way that this is like 2 1/2 men at all is the fact that he is a player, that’s it. Everything else is different. It is a different kind of character for him. So if that the real Will-I-Am that does music, before you criticise his show you need to make better music. Peace out.

    I love the show ..Gets better each week after the first episode which was weak. I think if this was a network show, ABC, NBC, CBS, would be a ratings hit. Bring it back for sure.

    I think people should stop comparing it with 2 1/2 men or with Sheen’s antics last year and just give it a shot. It’s certainly as good as Melissa & Joey (to compare it to another formulaic laugh-track style comedy).

  5. Anita says

    I’m wondering if Charlie Sheen can actually play a character that’s not like Charlie Harper…or even answer to another character name that’s not his own. This show dipped over %40 in a week…I don’t see it being renewed.

  6. Cody James Ernest Cameron says

    Great Show. This show must go on beyond the initial order of 10 episodes. Loving It.

  7. Andrea says

    I love Charlie Sheen but I really don’t care for this show. I found the character was way too much like Charlie Harper. To me this show is just a remake of 2 and 1/2 men only he’s a therapist in this one and his brother doesn’t live with him. Don’t think I’ll be watching this one again.

    The bridge has been burned…time to move back to dramas Charlie. Your lifestyle is entertaining….your new show is not. Peace out!
