Is Ashton Kutcher Returning to Two and a Half Men?


Ashton KutcherAshton Kutcher saved the day after Charlie Sheen had a breakdown and was fired from Two and a Half Men (or left, you choose). Though the show is still one of CBS’s top sitcoms, Kutcher has not decided if he is returning back to the show.

Nina Tassler from CBS Entertainment told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter preview party that CBS is working on a negotiation with Kutcher for his return, but it’s only “early conversations.”

“Everybody likes what they're doing,“ she told reporters, adding: "We've had an amazing year.” Kutcher was able to do what few can do. Rarely does a show, especially eight season in, survive after the star of the show leaves. Kutcher signed on only for one season, which truly was a smart move on his part. He likely had every intention on always returning, but knew he could get more money if things went well.

When asked about his future, Kutcher was vague about his plans. He suggested that he’d like to film a movie during hiatus, while he also admitted that his initial contract was a “test deal.“ The star added that he’d be "interested in coming back if we can work that out."

Two and a Half Men is just part of the equation that makes CBS number one for the 18-49 demographic. Though the network is on top, Tassler admits they aren’t just sitting there comfortably. "One of the most daunting challenges that we're facing this year is staying in that dominant position," she said. "In some ways I think it's almost more challenging holding onto that dominant position versus working your way up from the top."

Do you want to see Ashton Kutcher return to Two and a Half Men next season?

I was highly sceptical about the first episode without Charlie, but I enjoy it as much now as I always did. Hope Ashton returns to keep this going

Find the show very disappointing .. Not as funny as before .. I also miss the character Rose .. Maybe it is the writing .. Ashton's character not working for me ..

Yes!!! He has done an excellent job, his character is an absolute riot! Considering how he came in after 8 seasons of Charlie Sheen in the lead role, you people are not giving credit where credit is due. I hope to see him in the upcoming seasons.
