Two and a Half Men: Renewed for Season 10

two and half men renewed season 10To no surprise, CBS has renewed Two and a Half Men for a 10th season. The venerable sitcom’s fate was up in the air a year ago but, with Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen, season nine has been bigger than season eight.

While many expected Two and a Half Men to fail with Kutcher, the sitcom has been CBS’ highest-rated show all season in the demo. It currently averages a 5.01 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 14.62 million total viewers, just edging out The Big Bang Theory in the all-important demo.

Men had a sizable lead earlier in the season but the two shows’ averages have come closer and closer. If tonight’s season finale of Men registers a 3.9 or higher in the demo, it will hold onto the top spot.

Either way of course, Chuck Lorre is a very happy man.

Here’s the official press release about the season 10 renewal:

CBS RENEWS “TWO AND A HALF MEN” FOR THE 2012-2013 BROADCAST SEASON

Among all primetime comedies, TWO AND A HALF MEN ranks second in viewers and adults 25-54 and third among adults 18-49.

    The show is not funny anymore, Kutcher needs to go or grow up his character. Since Charlie is no longer on that show we watch his reruns and new show Anger Management. It is a shame what you had with Charlie is no longer there.

    I’d prefer Charlie Sheen too, but I actually don’t mind Ashton Kutcher; I’d have to agree that the British woman needs to go.

    In the ending how the boys say they’re going to take a nap, I can totally see them failing boop camp and won’t be in the Army.

    I’m looking forward for the next season hope it will be as good as this last one.

    Only like to watch show with Charlie Sheen. Husband and I will be watching Anger Management. Cancel show with Kutcher. Awlful!!!!

    I HAVE BEEN WATCHING IT FOR SIGNS OF IMPROVEMENT. FIRST GLIMMER OF HOPE WAS THIS WEEK…NO AWFUL BRITISH GIRLFRIEND, PHASING OUT OF JAKE AND ELDRIDGE, RETURN OF JUDITH’S HUSBAND WHO WAS ALWAYS VERY FUNNY AND THE BEGINNING OF AN ACTUAL NEW PLOT WITH THE LITTLE FAT GUY COMING IN TO FORM A TECH COMPANY WITH WALDEN. BIG BANG THEORY IS STILL MY FAVORITE. TWO AND A HALF MEN STILL INAPPROPRIATE TITLE UNLESS ALAN IS THE HALF MAN; HE CERTAINLY QUALIFIES.

    That sitcom should`ve been stopped after season 9th. There was a potential but all that was wasted. Pity… Or shame…

  7. KAB says

    I love that this show is renewed but I am wonderful where are they going to take this show because since Jake joined the Army he shouldn’t be considered half of a man any more. I think that the Army is going to make Jake and Eldridge smarten up and become men.

  8. Darvedd says

    It’s hard to see why it’s still so popular-not very funny this season and a great deal of very unfunny toilet ‘humour’-the cast is still good but not much to work with anymore…

  9. charlie(not sheen) says

    the way i see it chuck lorre has two opptions. ether hire charlie back or cancel the show. ether way charlie will win again because if he is hired back he will have two shows and if the shows cancelled it will be payback for firering him
