Eye View Hollywood, Sheen Taking A Break To Give Thanks For His Family

As Charlie Sheen heads back to a rehabilitation facility, weeks of salacious headlines are now giving way to a steep financial price for the star’s behavior.

In fact, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that if Two and a Half Men is forced to shut down permanently, it could jeopardize as much as $250 million in domestic syndication revenue for producer Warner Bros. Television and millions more in lost ad revenue for CBS.

In its eighth season, Men is the most-watched comedy on television, averaging 14.7 million viewers, while it is second only to ABC’s Modern Family among the ad-coveted younger demographic of 18-49-year-olds. CBS sells 30-second spots in Men for more than $200,000, according to media buyers, generating more than $3 million per episode. Kantar Media reports that the show grossed CBS more than $155 million in ad revenue last season alone.

At this point, the final two new episodes are scheduled to air Feb. 7 and 14. (The first is fittingly titled “Three Hookers and a Philly Cheesesteak,” according to the CBS schedule.)

Sheen stated he needs time at home and give thanks for his family.
