The drama continues for anyone who cares. Its getting old, and it would have been better to just end the show IMHO. Most good shows loose stars and continue as money making shows while the dwindle away. Shows way back in history have lost main characters and continued, like when John Boy Walton left "The Waltons", to Willian Peterson leaving CSI. Not as good, they went on for a few more seasons, and die hard fans just went with the flow of the new characters.
Curiosity will probably make this one of the biggest shows watched, wouldn't surprize me. Its a sad thing when a private labor dispute spreads to the viewing audience who could care less, now you get to see the flip side of Charley's "winning" crap-or was the "whinning"? Now the producers and network thumb their noses at Charley Sheen, but in doing so acknowledge, it was him who only in part, made the show what it is. Charley was only one of the stars, there are 2 others, plus a supporting cast that all made Charley shine. Whitout them, the show would have flopped, just like Charleys "winning" concerts flopped.
Charlie Sheen's "Men" character to get screen funeral?

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Charlie Sheen's "Two and A Half Men" character will not only be killed off, he will be given a funeral when the TV series returns in September, according to entertainment industry Web site Deadline Hollywood.
The screen demise of Sheen -- whose role on the TV comedy made him the highest-paid actor in Hollywood -- follows his firing from the show after a vicious public spat earlier this year with "Two and A Half Men" co-creator and producer Chuck Lorre.
Now Lorre appears set to exact revenge when the comedy returns with new star Ashton Kutcher in what Deadline Hollywood said is a secrecy-shrouded two-part season premiere that will be filmed later this week.
Broadcaster CBS and program makers Warner Bros. Television declined to comment on the report.
Sheen's womanizing bachelor character Charlie Harper -- said to be a close version of himself -- helped to make "Two and A Half Men" the most-watched comedy on U.S. television.
But Deadline Hollywood said Harper would die and his Malibu beachfront house would be put up for sale in a two-part season opener, allowing Kutcher's character to be introduced as a potential buyer.
Sheen was fired from the show in March after insulting Lorre in a bizarre series of interviews that followed months of drug and drink-fueled partying and repeated spells in rehab.
Kutcher, the creator of TV series "Punk'd" and the husband of actress Demi Moore, was hired in May as a new character on the series.
Sheen has since signed a deal for a new TV series called "Anger Management," but the show has not yet been picked up by any U.S. television networks.
