AceShowbiz - After 12 long years, "Two and a Half Men" will end on Thursday, February 19, 2015 at 9 P.M. CBS has announced the series finale date for the longest-running live-action sitcom currently on television.
"Two and a Half Men" will conclude with a one-hour special finale which is led by a new original episode of "The Big Bang Theory" and the series premiere of Matthew Perry sitcom "The Odd Couple". The following week, the second season of "Mom" will move to Thursdays at 9.30 P.M. after repeats of "Big Bang Theory". Meanwhile, "The McCarthys" will end its first season run in February and CBS has not determined whether the sitcom will get beyond its 15-episode order.
The end of "Two and a Half Men" was confirmed in May. "Chuck Lorre is creating a season-long event. We did very well last year with announcing the final season of How I Met Your Mother here too. Chuck is very psyched about this; he's got some great ideas and very big surprises," CBS' Nina Tassler said at that time. "We know fans and audiences respond to that and that should really give us a nice boost when we launch our new comedy."
There are rumors that Charlie Sheen will pop up on the finale as a tribute. The actor himself has repeatedly shown interest in making a cameo. "I've reached out to them and they've reached back," Sheen told TV Guide Magazine. "We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."
Sheen was dishonorably discharged from the sitcom in 2011 after his personal problems took over his commitment and he feuded with Lorre. He was replaced Ashton Kutcher who took on a new character while Sheen's Charlie Harper was killed. His longtime co-star Angus T. Jones also quit last year after trashing the show, replaced by Amber Tamblyn as Harper's long-lost daughter.
