'Two and a Half Men' to return without Angus T. Jones

Two and a Half MenCBS confirmed today that Two and a Half Men has been renewed for its 11th season. However, the long-running sitcom will no longer be sporting its titular half man when it comes back in the fall.

The highest-paid actors on television, Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher inked new one-year deals to return for another season. Reports estimate Kutcher's salary around $700,000 per episode, while Cryer earns slightly less.

Angus T. Jones, who has played young Jake since the age of 10, will not return as a regular character, but he may appear in a recurring role. Instead of starring on the show, the 19-year-old actor will follow through on his plans to attend college, which he delayed after signing a one-year contract extension last year.

His character had already been reduced to sporadic appearances via Skype, so it shouldn't be a major loss. Last fall, Jones made headlines when he recorded a religious testimonial video posted on YouTube deriding Two and a Half Men as "filth" and declared that he wanted to leave the show. After a public apology to producers, crew, and fellow cast members, Jones returned to work for the remainder of the season.

Will you miss the half man?

The series died at the ending of season 8. You can say what you want about Charlie Sheen but his amazing work together with Jon Cryer was always something that made the series great. Their natural acting and the impression that these were actually real brothers combined with Allan (Jon Cryer) constant ability to end up in the most hilarious situations due to his cheapness and often strange personality was what made Two And A Half Men great. Yes Charlie Sheen is a crazy man but it must demand a crazy man to act as someone who is indeed also crazy. The loss of Charlie, the almost complete loss of Rose and Evelyn has been the final nails in the coffin for this show. Now they are running it as long as they can to squeeze the last dollars out of the show even if that requires them to completely drive the sad remains of the show into the ground and ruin what was once the greatest show on TV.

the show is funny... but in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Typical dumbed down American idiot humor... geared towards brainless non-thinking TV junkies. Whats wrong with poking ur head up above the breathy cloud of sycophants to say "Hey! This is garbage, and u pay me too much to quit!".... and then quit?.... U go boy! How much money can a pos show generate? America can be truly embarrassing.

Best of luck Jake. Doubt he'll be acting any more. However isn't it time this was brought to an end with the death of Alan Harper who over the last several years, including Charlie's time on the show become an irritating @%*T who most people with a brain would kick out of their home.

Prediction: Angus T. Jones will become disillusioned when he fails to be a success on his own,and resort to booze, drugs, gambling, or major depression-then lose every dime he ever made. Angus is great only because he is on a show that is great. Without it, he's just another struggling actor.

I think Angus T. Jones' acting days are over, and we will never see the likes of him again because he is a poor actor, and he made a big mistake by biting the hand who fed him. Good luck in college.

I tried to watch the return of 2 and a half men after Sheen was removed, I watched about 5 eps with the punk'd guy and it just got wore and worse each ep. The first ep showed a little promise, but I haven't though about ever watching it again without sheen. It's lame and boring as heck now, and even wore without the funny kid, I'm surprised the nanny hasn't left the show yet either, she's one of the last funny ones, besides that neighbor lady.

I don't necessarily love Two And A Half Men but I don't have much tolerance for Jones' behavior. I'm reminded of Kirk Cameron. Religious beliefs are fine but Jones could have simply let his contract run out and then left rather than being an idiot and making a spectacle of his beliefs and the show. Given that the show is filth Angus T. Jones should donate all the money he's made from Two And A Half Men to charity.

Good riddance to Angus T. Jones.
