Two and a Half Men‘s isn’t going quietly: The longest-running comedy on broadcast TV will conclude its run with a final season storyline that deals with gay adoption—sort of—and possibly marriage.

CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler gave some reporters the scoop after her executive session panel at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills Thursday. In the show’s 12th and final season, Walden (Ashton Kutcher) is going to have a major health scare that leads him to an “existential crisis” that causes the young playboy to want to “add more meaning to his life.”

So he decides to adopt a child. “He starts the [adoption] process and realizes it’s very difficult to adopt the child as a single straight man. So, once and for all, he decides he’s going to propose to Alan [Jon Cryer]—they’re going to adopt a child as a ‘gay’ couple,” Tassler said. READ FULL STORY

Chuck Lorre has apologized for 'Two and a Half Men'

Chuck Lorre has owed us all an apology for a while — and he knows it.

At Sunday’s Television Academy Honors, which recognize television that generates awareness regarding social issues, Lorre was honored for an episode of Mom that focuses on Allison Janney’s character, an alcoholic who falls off the wagon and tries to repair her life. As Lorre accepted the award, he poked fun at his mega-successful sitcom Two and a Half Men.

According to Variety, Lorre jokingly told the crowd, “To do a show about people trying to redeem their lives and to salvage and repair the damage they’ve done — for me, it’s an opportunity to apologize for Two and a Half Men.”

But is it enough of an apology? We’ll let you decide that one.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher in 'Two and a Half Men': It's love at first sight -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Was that baby announcement not enough for you? Don’t worry — we’ve got more Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher goodness with this exclusive photo from her upcoming guest appearance.

As previously confirmed, Kunis — who, in addition to being Kutcher’s real life love, previously starred with the actor in That ’70s Show — will play Vivian, a free-spirited world traveler who makes a connection with Kutcher’s Walden. Further details are currently being kept under wraps, but from the above photo, it seems that we can expect to see sparks fly between the real life couple — for better or for worse.

Are you excited about Kunis’ guest appearance? Let us know in the comments below. 

 

Mila Kunis to guest on 'Two and a Half Men'

Two and a Half Men is staging a That ’70s Show reunion. 

CBS has announced that Mila Kunis, who previously played Jackie on the retro sitcom and in real life plays the role of significant other to series star Ashton Kutcher, has been tapped to guest star in an upcoming episode. Kunis will play Vivian, a young, beautiful, free-spirited world traveler who has an instant connection with Kutcher’s Walden. Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, except Walden meets Vivian, whom he thinks is “the one,” just before he was set to propose to another woman.

Kunis, who played opposite husband-to-be Kutcher on ’70s Show for eight seasons, will next be seen in Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, and currently lends her voice to Fox’s Family Guy.

Roseanne accuses Chuck Lorre, Ashton Kutcher of joke theft

Roseanne Barr is at it again.

Here, “it” refers to a long, vitriolic Twitter rant directed at someone from the comedian’s past. Back in July, ex-husband Tom Arnold was the focus of Roseanne’s wrath. Yesterday, she turned to a trifecta of targets: Ashton Kutcher, Two and a Half Men, and Chuck Lorre, the CBS sitcom’s creator — who got his big break when he was hired as a supervising producer on Barr’s ’90s hit Roseanne.

On Friday, Barr discovered that Thursday’s episode of Men featured Kutcher delivering a raunchy joke about being 91 years old: “I’d imagine that you’re wet in the places you used to be dry, and dry in the places you used to be wet.” The line is similar to one Barr has been telling since at least 2006, though in her case, it refers to the effects of menopause: “I’m wet where I’m supposed to be dry and dry where I’m supposed to be wet.”

'Two and a Half Men': Amber Tamblyn describes the scary part of filming sitcoms, Ashton Kutcher's nipples, and more

Amber Tamblyn is no stranger to the realm of TV, but this time she’s in uncharted territory: sitcoms. Known for her roles in dramas such as Joan of Arcadia and House, Tamblyn is set to guest star in a five-episode arc — with the possibility of a recurring role — on the upcoming 11th season of Two and a Half Men. With her first-ever sitcom appearance airing tonight, Tamblyn spoke with Entertainment Weekly about portraying the previously unknown daughter of Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen), as well as more ventures on the horizon.

Fall TV: Six toughest time slot battles (and which show will win)

It’s war! Next week broadcasters shove the bulk of their new shows into the spotlight and anxiously count how many viewers show up to watch. Even in this era of heavy DVR use, a show’s time slot still matters plenty — just ask NBC’s Revolution, which was hugely boosted whenever it ran behind original episodes of The Voice last season (or any show that runs against The Voice, for that matter). Here are six of the most interesting new top time-period battles this fall — and who we think will win.

Lynda Carter spins into 'Two and a Half Men' -- EXCLUSIVE

NBC and The CW weren’t able to get their Wonder Woman projects off the ground, but CBS’ Two and a Half Men is bringing the original warrior princess back to primetime. The hit comedy has booked actress Lynda Carter to play “a version of herself” in the upcoming 11th season.

The set-up: Alan (Jon Cryer) has a massive Carter crush going back to her days as an actress on the original Wonder Woman series (1975-79). He gets to meet her in person and, well, you’ll have to tune in to see what happens next. Men is getting an overhaul this fall as Amber Tamblyn joins the show as Charlie’s lesbian daughter, who moves in with Alan and Walden (Ashton Kutcher). The show returns Sept. 26 at 9:30 p.m.

'Two and a Half Men': Amber Tamblyn to play Charlie's lesbian daughter

Amber Tamblyn will join the two remaining men of Two and a Half Men on the small screen this fall.

The actress has nabbed a role on the Chuck Lorre comedy, playing Jenny, the lesbian illegitimate daughter of the late Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen). Per the storyline, Jenny moves to L.A. to pursue a career in acting and connect with family, which includes Jon Cryer’s Alan.

Tamblyn joins the cast a little less than a month after a search for the character first began and a little more than four months after the show announced Angus T. Jones would not be returning to the show as a series regular, a move widely believed to be related to the 19-year-old former star’s now infamous YouTube bash-fest.

Tamblyn will appear in five episodes, with the possibility of becoming co-lead on the show, which currently gives Cryer and Ashton Kutcher top-billing.

Tamblyn’s most recent TV work was on Fox’s dearly departed House, where she played intern Martha Masters.

Charlie Harper's daughter to be new series regular on 'Two and a Half Men'

With the ‘half’ of Two and a Half Men off the cast of the CBS sitcom, there’s room for a new character when the show returns this fall without Angus T. Jones as a series regular. That new role will be Charlie Harper’s long-lost daughter. Deadline first reported the news. READ FULL STORY

'Two and a Half Men' renewed, without Angus T. Jones as regular

two-half-men-02

As expected, CBS’ Two and a Half Men will return next season.

Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have both signed on for another round, with Kutcher getting a reported $700,000-per-episode payout. But don’t expect Angus T. Jones to be back full time. Studio Warner Bros. is talking to the actor about a possible recurring role on the show instead of coming back as a series regular.

Cue the usual quips about whether the show’s title should be changed.

Jones infamously bashed his show earlier this season on a YouTube video, prompting speculation that he might be headed for the door. But CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters in January that the network and the actor had mended fences. “The kid’s 19 years old,” Tassler said at the time.”I’ve got a 24 year old. Between the ages of 19 and 24 there’s been plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t but the bottom line is cooler heads prevailed. [Jones has] been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and he issued a public apology. At the end of the day, they want him back and he wants to come back and that’s it.”

It’s a lot harder than it seems, whittling down the big stories that rocked the TV industry this year. Do we ignore how DirecTV tortured its subscribers by yanking the Viacom channels? Do we overlook how Disney Channel finally overcame the juggernaut that is Nickelodeon?

Yup, we do. There were just too many, far more significant milestones/flub-ups/hot messes that we wanted to acknowledge. So after much deliberation, here are the top 10 stories that had us buzzing and/or shaking or heads in disbelief.

10. Arrivederci, Jersey Shore and friends

Cable bid farewell to some pretty major powerhouses this year, including MTV’s Jersey Shore and Discovery’s American Choppers and Dirty Jobs. We’re not too sure how Discovery plans to fill the void left behind by Mike Rowe’s labor of love and those motorcycle boys, but MTV has already turned its back on Snooki and Co. by setting its sights on a bunch of hell raisers in West Virginia. Get ready, America.
