The ratings for Two and a Half Men fell last season but the sitcom was still CBS’ second-highest scripted series. Will the numbers continue to fall or will they rise this year? Is the show getting to expensive to be renewed? We shall see.
Two and a Half Men revolves around the lives of unlikely housemates Alan Harper (Jon Cryer) and Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher). Other regular castmembers include Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor, and Marin Hinkle. Recurring are Angus T. Jones, Melanie Lynskey, April Bowlby, Ryan Stiles, and Amber Tamblyn.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
