Charlie Sheen is in rehab and is taking a break from Two and a Half Men to do so according to press release from his publicist Stan Rosenfield, “As a preventative measure, Charlie Sheen has entered a rehabilitation facility. He will take some time off his series Two And A Half Men. He has asked that his privacy be honored. No further statements are planned.”
According to TMZ even though Charlie’s wife Brooke is also in rehab, the two are not at the same one. TMZ says that their twins boys are with Brooke in rehab and her staff of nannies is helping her out. Now how a mother, who is trying to get better, has her kids with her is beyond me. To me rehab is not a place for children especially for babies as young as Max and Bob.
Now when it comes to Two and a Half Men, TMZ says that Charlie did not notify them he was entering rehab and it wasn’t until they checked to find out why he didn’t show up to work that they found out. So obviously the #1 comedy on TV is in flux. According to Nikki Finke, 18 of the 23 episodes for the season have been shot which is the same amount that another CBS sitcom, Accidentally on Purpose had ordered for their season. Too bad Jenna Elfman is about to give birth otherwise they could’ve extended that order to fill the slot vacated by Sheen’s show. Although 2.5 does well in repeats so maybe they will air repeats until May sweeps.
When it comes to 2.5, I wouldn’t mind a few episodes that are Charlieless and to fill the void they have more scenes with Charlie and Alan’s mom Evelyn Harper and Berta. They do not use Holland Taylor and Conchata Ferrell enough on the show. I am also not liking this season’s storyline with Charlie and his fiancee’, the actress doesn’t do anything for me and Charlie needs to be a playboy and not tied down.

UPDATE: TMZ says that Charlie will be in rehab for two weeks and production will restart on the show when he is out. They added he did let people involved with the show that he was voluntarily checking himself into rehab, so they were aware that he would be taking the time off.
Also TMZ now says that their twins, Max and Bob are staying at the family home and the couple’s moms will be checking in on them while Charlie and Brooke are in rehab.
