TV Guide Reports That Charlie Sheen Is Raking In The Dough
Wowza. Some stars are earning big time bucks for the crappiest of TV shows. Okay, they’re not all crappy, but still, it’s astounding what networks dish out to keep their precious little small screen gems intact. According to TV Guide, in an article titled “Who Makes What”, Charlie Sheen brings home an astronomical sum of $850K for each episode of Two and a Half Men.
Yep, you read that right. That’s almost a million dollars (plus all the other costs) to bring an awful, unoriginal, contrived, unfunny crap-com to the air every week. My only question is: are there really that many loyal viewers? I’ve never actually come across any of these creatures in real life. Yet the ratings for Two and a Half Men are always high. I smell a conspiracy.
