CBS renews 'Two and Half Men'; Angus T. Jones to continue

MUMBAI: The network and studio Warner Bros. Television are currently chalking out a fresh deal for, the ?half? in the title, young star Angus T. Jones to persist on the Chuck Lorre comedy, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, stars Ashton Kutcher, who play the role of the goofy billionaire Walden Schmidt and Jon Cryer who plays the middle aged Alan Harper have inked new one-year deals for season eleven and will return to the series as before. The news doesn?t spring much of a surprise as Jones had been vocal about his desire to focus on college following Men?s tenth season.

Jones has also publicly expressed his views about the way the series had used his character in the tenth season, as Jake frequently appeared via Skype after having enlisted in the military in the show.

CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler told reporters in January at the Television Critics Association?s winter press tour that she?d like to see Jones continue with the series despite his provocative digs at the series that had made him an overnight star.

"He made his public apology and we?ve moved on," she said of Jones? comments, in which he declared the show as "filth" and urged viewers to stop watching. "The kid is 19 years old. I?ve got a 24-year-old. Between the ages of 19 and 24, there?s been plenty of things my kid has said that I wish he hadn?t. The bottom line is cooler heads prevailed," Tassler concluded.

The series, which moved to the prime slot post - Big Bang Theory on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. in its tenth season, averaged 4.2 rating among the core adults (18-49) demographic.

As for whether the Thursday night comedy would go beyond eleven seasons, Tassler took a "we?ll see" approach. "We have such a crazy success story in terms of our long-running shows, who knows," she said.

The Indian viewers who have enjoyed all the previous seasons on Star World would be eagerly awaiting the eleventh season, but it is still unclear if the Lorre hit comedy would continue airing on Star World in India.
