If you missed the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards let me tell you that it was a night full of surprises and new faces!  “Modern Family” the sitcom about three assorted couples, very descriptive of our times I’d dare and my favorite TV show swept the board!  It won 4 Emmys for: Directing, writing, and outstanding supporting actor and actress. “Mad Men” was the second best of the night as it won “best drama” series for a fourth straight year.

On the other hand, “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons (Sheldon), my second favorite show, won his second Emmy in a row as best lead actor in a comedy. Melissa McCarthy of “Mike & Molly” won the award for lead actress. And Canadian actor Barry Pepper won best actor in a mini-series for his role as Robert Kennedy in “The Kennedys(Just to mention a few of the many winners of the night).

Another relevant appearance of the night was Charlie Sheen who of course was not part of the nominees but was in charge of presenting the award for lead actor in a comedy. Although his speech at the beginning seemed to be the prelude of a controversial one, he did nothing but congratulate his former colleagues and wish them the best.  Coincidence or not, this “motivational” moment comes just before the premiere episode of a new season of “Two and a half Men” with Ashton Kutcher replacing Sheen, which by the way will be broadcasted tonight.

Doing an overall review of the whole Emmy night by network HBO was the biggest winner with 19 Emmys, followed by 14 for PBS, 11 for CBS, 9 for Fox, 8 for ABC and 6 for NBC. Hopefully, our night at Bingo Angels is  as successful as it was for HBO at the Emmys!

That was the “riddle” Ashton Kutcher posted on Twitter as a hint to let all his followers know he will be joining the cast of Two and a Half Men.  Kutcher confirmed the rumors when he made public his debut as a cast member of the sitcom by joining his co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T Jones at a TV industry event in New York a few days back.

As you will well remember, Charlie Sheen was fired from the show after going on benders and talking about the show’s producer, Chuck Lorre a few months back.  Ever since the show has been on a standby until this decision was made. Regardless of what people think of Charlie, he is a good actor and entertainer. It will be interesting to see how the producers approach the public and how Ashton will play the role. Kutcher seems to be perfectly aware that he has a huge weight in his shoulders with this role as he said that Seen is not replaceable but he will do his best to keep the show going and amuse people. So let’s see how this whole change of characters turns out for the show. In the end the ratings will speak louder than any opinion anyone can give. So best of luck to the producers and Kutcher!

Two and a Half Men Show Pulled Yesterday CBS’s decided to pull the plug on the top-rated comedy “Two and a Half Men” for this season.  The sudden “Two and a Half Men” production halt leaves CBS eight episodes short of reaching the 24 half-hours it had expected to air. Following previous “disagreements” Warner had already planned to cut this season’s 24 planned episodes to 20, now CBS is left with a total of 16 episodes of its cornerstone Monday comedy, all of which have aired.

Following Sheen’s on air rant, CBS Entertainment released a statement that read: “Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Brothers Television have decided to discontinue production of ‘Two and a Half Men’ for the remainder of the season.”
