Two and a Half Men has been a consistent performer for CBS, who has the claim to the most number of hit television comedies currently on air. With the Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, CBS holds a claim to two of the highest earning and performing comedies on TV, but with Two and a Half Men nearing its end, will the network be ready to let it go?
CBS has already renewed 18 series, but it's not yet confirmed whether Two and a Half men will return for its 11th season. Talks are reportedly underway with showrunner Chuck Lorre and the network executives, but for now, CBS has renewed dramas Elementary, Hawai Five-0, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, and The Good Wife.
The comedies returning are 2 Broke Girls, Mike and Molly, the last season of How I Met Your Mother, and of course ratings winner Big Bang Theory. However, nothing yet concrete has been announced regarding the fate of Two and a Half Men so we'll just have to wait to find out.
The show has already suffered a series of setbacks during the whole Charlie Sheen debacle, but it has recovered pretty well and although the ratings have suffered without Sheen, they've still been pretty good. The only question is whether they are good enough for CBS to announce another season.
