Charlie Sheen Fired from 'Two and a Half Men'

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Looks like Charlie Sheen isn't "winning" anymore.

Warner Brothers Television announced in a statement on Monday that Sheen has been fired.

“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately," the statement said.

CBS Television said they are declining comment at this time.

"This is very good news," Sheen said in a statement to TMZ.com. "They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshis[name] again" -- likely a reference to Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre -- "and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension."

Sheen has consistently petitioned to return to the set of the show in the endless series of interviews he's done in the past week.  On Thursday, he told a Philadelphia radio station that he was confident that the show would resume production, saying, "It feels like we're getting close to something...it feels like all parties, myself excluded, are finally waking up."

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also told ESPNDallas.com that he was in talks with Sheen about collaborating on some new programming for HDNet, which Cuban owns.

Tassler says she can't just wave her hands and magically make the Two and a Half Men star get his life in order. 

"You can't look at it simplistically," Tassler said.  "Charlie is a professional.  He comes to work.  He does his job very well...On a personal level, I'm very concerned.  On a professional level...the show's a hit."
