Charlie sheen is a douche bag idiot. After hearing his rants and saying he is a total winner and all the ugly adults with thier ugly kids on the show or watching the show, he should be fired and no one should ever hire that loser again. Is it not pathetic that his sorry a$$ has to pay a bunch of nasty, scanky porn chicks to party with him just to get some action. I have never watched the show but if I were the other actors who actual take their jobs serious and want to work and be repspected I would seriously re-consider continuing on this show.

Poor decision from the producers.This guy is a cash cow for them.
His off screen rants will further enhance the ratings.
Idiots!

Charlie Sheen is a genius who knows what he is talking about. All the narcotics and liquor he has consumed have made him wiser and sharpened his wit. He needs to start another comedy on another network that better appreciates his comedic talent.
you and charlie are nuts

Finally some one with the balls to get rid of a bad role model. It may cause some minor problems with CBS the rest of the season and with the scheduling but who cares. Charlie made his bed. Time for him to get on with his rehab that is if he does not end up killing himself in a drug overdose.

Charlie has really screwed up. I'll save CBS some money. I'll do his part for $1.5 million. He pretty much just delivers his lines. He doesn't write them. I been in a few plays-I could do this!

What a sad thing for this to happen not for Charlie but for the lot of people that will be put out of work.

Charlie Sheen is a good actor, but that asinine sitcom sucked.

Well, it happened again!

One of ABC's best drama shows was pre-empted for another "special" prime time interview, this time for the train wreck, coked up, narcissist Charlie Sheen. Back on January 18, ABC pre-empted "Detroit 1-8-7" for an interview with the husband of Gabrielle Giffords.

While the latter could possibly be justified, there is no way I can justify setting aside your regularly scheduled programming for trash such as Charlie Sheen. Hell, while ABC is at it, why not have Diane Sawyer have a sit down interview with another train wreck, Lindsay Lohan?

"Detroit 1-8-7" only has three new episodes left in its first season. Sadly, it'll most likely be its only season. Ratings have taken a hit because of the network screwing around with its regular time slot.

After "Detroit 1-8-7" is finished, I'm inclined to give ABC a big middle finger and not watch its programming anymore! Thankfully, "The Good Wife" on CBS was on opposite of "Sheen TV".
