Compared to its season premiere a year ago, the show was down by 67% in the demo (vs a 10.7 rating) and down by 56% in viewers (vs 28.74 million). That was the first Ashton Kutcher episode so obviously that was a very special case. Compared to the season five premiere in 2010, the season seven debut was down by 29% in the demo (vs a 4.9 rating) and down by 14% in viewers (vs 14.63 million) — even though it now has a better lead-in.


Reference point: The ninth season of Two and a Half Men averaged a 5.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 14.62 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

  1. charlie sheen says

    This sit com has ran it’s course.The kid is in the army and Allens character is pathedic. KILL THE SHOW.

  2. Aladdin Smith says

    gr8 show …even better with AK than Charlie something .
    Ashton is amazing actor , and bring the Show to a whole new level with more stability and focusing on main charachters than before .
    bottom line : Hope 2 see more Seasons

  3. Alma Rauda says

    No Charlie, no show! I gave it a try but I couldn’t watch as faithfully as I still do the original on Channel 5 or FX; Charlie was funny and everyone else had a great chemistry around him and I just don’t see it with AK.

  4. bob says

    Waldo can’t act.
    Alan over acts.
    Jake grew up.
    Charlie blew it.
    This thing sucks.
    Keep it in syndication, stop the embarrassment and give us a break

  5. Why Watch says

    It wasn’t funny with Charlie, it’s less funny with Ashton. Bamboo sticks under my nails would be a more fun time.

  6. Duane says

    Time to shoot this injured horse. I really liked it before and now with A.K. it’s gone down hill. Waldon is too immature and Alan is too bi. (Likes women but acts gay) Ratings are way down from when the Charlie character was in it. About 15+% to 4%

  7. says

    I turned this show on again to give it another shot, but it’s just not working.
    I’d like to see these actors in different roles, different sitcoms.

  8. says

    Two and half men was a great show. Now it is horrible without charlie sheen . let’s hope it will get cancel soon. So they can put something else on.

  9. Craig says

    The show used to have 2.5 funny men. Allan and Charlie both had solid comic plot lines. Now it is more the Allan show. Hey, it got him an Emmy, but it would be nice if Ashton’s character was not usually the straight man for Allan and Jake.

  10. jim wells says

    I think there were better alternitives to Ashton kucher this is not the 70s show he’s not funny in it my idea had Charlie looseing the house etc gambling in Vegas to somerich womanizer not killing Charlie off then they could of brought hilater chuck laury blew it wide open and sank the ship

  11. Ana says

    I think 2.5 men is good. It’s not the same show before but make me laugh a lot and that’s a success. If people don’t enjoy it asynchronous as I do I believe it’s because they keep comparing with the old one. Lets face it. It’s different and only moving on from the past you can appreciate the jokes. The second episode season 10 I thought it was brilliant! Great scripts, acting and fantastic ending I couldn’t stop laughing .
    If we are going to compare it let’s be fare seasons 7&8 were not that great and funny. The story was alright because we all learnt to love Rose and the characters but Sheen didn’t make me laugh like in the first seasons.
    I believe 14.5 million people seen it its a big number and still should go on! Other shows have only over a million viewers . Take those ones down first!
