The ratings are incredible, way higher than before Charlie Sheen left (though his outrageous departure probably contributed to the show’s overall publicity).
But bottom line is this — America clearly loves to watch Ashton Kutcher. But does he love being watched??
Uhmm… hell yeah he does!! Duh, it’s Kelso!! The man is meant to play lovable characters… and he knows it!!
At a recent TCA panel, creator Chuck Lorre confessed they almost axed the show after Sheen went crazy, but then Ashton came into the picture and changed everything.
So when asked whether or not he’ll return next Fall, Ashton says:
The deal we structured was kinda a test deal. The show is outperforming the numbers from before I was here, and I think people are responding to it. For me having a show people like and want more of will dictate my decision. Right now I’m looking at (summer) as a hiatus, I have a lot of fun and would love to come back.
So… that’s a yes… ???
Oh and before we forget!! Remember the feud between Chuck and Charlie??
Apparently none of that ever happened (or maybe that’s just what they want us to think). But Chuck says he wishes Charlie well and only the best. Aww.. LOL!!
