CBS CEO on Angus T. Jones: Situation Hasn't Been Resolved Yet

David Livingston/Getty Images(NEW YORK) - The CEO of CBS has hinted that the status of Angus T. Jones on Two and a Half Men is uncertain after the actor dismissed the show as "filth" in a now-infamous interview posted online.

According to Forbes, Les Moonves commented on Jones' remarks Tuesday at a Q&A event in New York City conducted by the managing editor of The Wall Street Journal.

Moonves said, "I don’t think it’s been quite resolved, but after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake."

Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men last year after a series of rants in which he disparaged series creator Chuck Lorre, among others.

Moonves also said, "We took this boy who started with us when he was 8 years old.  Now’s he’s making over $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19-year-old kid.  By the way, he’s still collecting his $300,000 per week."

There have been reports that Jones will leave Two and a Half Men after the current season.

Charlie Sheen Blames Angus T. Jones' 'Emotional Tsunami' on Chuck Lorre

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen is chalking up his former Two and a Half Men co-star Angus T. Jones' negative remarks about the CBS sitcom to what he calls the "hive of oppression" created by series creator Chuck Lorre.

Jones referred to Two and a Half Men as "filth" in a video interview posted online by Forerunner Chronicles regarding his religious awakening. 

Sheen later reacted by telling People magazine that the show is "cursed."  In a separate statement, he said Jones is welcome to join his FX comedy Anger Management.

Sheen now seems to be assigning some blame to Lorre, with whom he famously feuded with last year prior to being fired from Two and a Half Men.

Speaking with TMZ.com, Sheen said, "I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami."

He also said, "Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube."

Jones on Tuesday issued a statement in which he apologized if his remarks were interpreted as showing "indifference to and disrespect of" his colleagues.  According to TMZ, he feels badly that he's caused such an uproar, but he will leave Two and a Half Men after the current season wraps up.

TMZ also reports that Jones wanted to quit the show after last season but was encouraged by reps and family members to stick around due to his hefty salary.  He reportedly makes $300,000 per episode.

Meanwhile, Stephen Baldwin, a devout Christian, offered the following advice to Jones on ABC's Good Morning America Wednesday: "I think he ought to walk his walk and stand up for what he believes in and finish out the season and go about his business."

Angus T. Jones Clarifies "Two and a Half" Men Comments

David Livingston/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- After calling his CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men "filth" in a video interview that quickly went viral, Angus T. Jones on Tuesday sought to clarify his comments with a statement obtained by several media outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter.

The 19-year-old, who plays Jake Harper, says, "Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family."

Calling his time on the show "one of the most significant experiences in my life to date," he thanks series creator Chuck Lorre and the show's producers, and notes that the cast and crew have had a positive impact on his life.

The statement concludes, "I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that."

Jones disparaged Two and a Half Men in a video posted online by Forerunner Chronicles in which he details his religious awakening.

Miley Cyrus Guest Stars on "Two and a Half Men"

Kevin Mazur/WireImage via ABC(NEW YORK) -- Miley Cyrus' well-publicized guest spot on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men aired Thursday night.

Her character, Missi, was the daughter of an old friend of Ashton Kutcher's Walden.  She was visiting from out of town because she was thinking of moving to Los Angeles.

Missi spoke quickly with a Southern accent and claimed she was named after the Mississippi River because she was conceived on a gambling boat.

Over the course of the episode, she tried to set up Walden with her mother, and had a brief fling with Angus T. Jones' Jake.  She eventually told Jake that she couldn't see him anymore because she has a boyfriend.

Charlie Sheen Picks Fave "Two and a Half Men" Episodes for Marathon

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- To help launch his new show Anger Management on Thursday, Charlie Sheen's new network, FX, has announced it will air a marathon of his favorite 24 episodes of Two and a Half Men, the show from which he was fired.

And while he famously went out in a frenetic, catchphrase-spewing tornado of truth, a newly-calmed Sheen seems to have nothing but nice things to say about his former show.

"As I culled through the mass of shows, eight-plus years, I was met with a theme of innocence," Sheen said in the statement.  "I felt younger, lighter.  I could still hear the jokes, and the stories we all told in place of rehearsals.  I can still see nine-year-old Angus [T. Jones] riding his Razor up and down the camera aisle; his self-appointed surrogate guardian Chuck Lorre watching with pride and also concern.  I can hear the echoes of Jon [Cryer]'s genius, Conchata [Ferrell]'s laugh, Holland [Taylor]'s leadership and Marin [Hinkle]’s quiet grace."

He adds, "And the crew, the amazing crew."

The actor reflects, "Who cares how it ended; when it was good, it was great. We were in the middle of something big, the return of the sitcom. We were hungry and we were winning."

The marathon starts at 9 a.m. ET Thursday.  Anger Management debuts that night at 9 p.m. ET.

Network Renewals, Cancellations: "Two and a Half Men" Will Be Back

"Missing" from next fall's ABC line-up is the eponymous freshman drama starring Ashley Judd.(LOS ANGELES) -- Ashton Kutcher is officially on board for a second season of Two and a Half Men.

The Hollywood Reporter said Kutcher and his co-stars, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, will receive small raises to return for the CBS hit sitcom’s tenth season. Kutcher, who reportedly made more than $700,000 per episode this season, replaced Charlie Sheen last year.

CBS cancelled CSI: Miami and the first-year shows Rob, Unforgettable, NYC 22 and A Gifted Man. The star of A Gifted Man, Patrick Wilson, tweeted his frustration over the weekend, writing, “So…shocking to no one: #agiftedman is done. Found out via email…and not from the network. Stay classy.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC renewed Private Practice, Body of Proof, Last Man Standing, and the first-year shows Scandal and Don’t Trust the B**** in Apt 23. It cancelled GCB, Missing, Pan Am and The River.

The CW pulled the plug on Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Ringer as well as The Secret Circle, and renewed Gossip Girl, Nikita and Hart of Dixie. It also picked up the Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries.

Report: Kutcher Offered $1M Per Episode to Return to "Two and a Half Men"

Charles Eshelman/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Ashton Kutcher has yet to commit to Two and a Half Men for the 2012-2013 TV season, but the show's producers are certainly interested in keeping him.

E! Online reports Kutcher has been offered approximately $1 million per episode for next season.  That would be a nice raise from the $700,000 per episode he reportedly made for his debut season.

A source says, "The talks are going well and we're getting close to finalizing."

But The Hollywood Reporter tells a different story.  The trade publication says Kutcher and co-star Jon Cryer have both been offered two-year deals that do not provide a raise.

Earlier this month, CBS said it was in "preliminary discussions regarding future seasons" of its hit sitcom.

This season is Kutcher's first as the replacement for the fired Charlie Sheen.  He plays Internet billionaire Walden Schmidt.
