It was the season premiere that ate its competition: 28.7 million viewers for Two and a Half Men with its new star Ashton Kutcher. But Charlie Sheen, who was axed by his old CBS bosses, did just fine with record-breaking numbers over at Comedy Central, which aired the ex-star’s potty-mouth roast on the same night.
Stunningly, it was Charlie.
Here’s what two of Sheen’s old worker-bees had to say:
“[Ashton] is really a nice guy. Just a nice guy. And he’s OK on set. He gets the job done—that’s what we all want.”
If you’re thinking this a slightly less than glowing review, listen to how another former colleague of Charlie’s (who’s also still employed by the show), broke it down about Demi‘s husband:
“He’s just not as funny as Charlie. Not that we’d want Charlie back if you doubled our salaries.”
