Despite a major casting change in the ninth season, Two and a Half Men ratings were high enough for CBS to pick the show up for a tenth season.
The 8th season of Two and a Half Men was cut short after Charlie Sheen was fired from the show. The show came back for a 9th season with Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen. Even though Kutcher’s co-stars said he was “not as funny” as Sheen, Two and a Half Men still attracted millions of viewers.
Two and a Half Men’s 9th season ranked second in prime-time comedies for viewers and adults 25-54 and third among adults 18-49. Ratings were also up from season eight by 13 percent.
Other CBS sitcom renewals include How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly and The Big Bang Theory.
