    My take is that by watching the show, I am helping to feed Charlie. Sure, it's easy to turn a blind eye to what he does off the show but I would much rather help feed other actors who don't act like an ass when "off duty".

    That sounds like damage control to me.

    No way the production company could have shut down and then fired Sheen without CBS being behind it. Also, IF they did somehow manage to do that, no way CBS didn't immediately issue a statement back when it originally happened.

    This is pure damage control as they most likely see Sheen capitalizing and making money on his own popularity right now... and CBS wants a piece of that.

    The key part of that article: "In the wake of Sheen's firing, the usually highly-rated show dropped off 13 percent in their key demographic, the 18-49 age group.":lol:

    What! A show airing reruns has fewer viewers. How can that be?

    So now, not only has Charlie angered most of America, he's angered his most fervent supporters. :nono2:

    So much for all the people that said they wanted to party with him... Apparently, not much of a party.

    It's a shame that he is apparently going to have to go down in flames before he seeks help.

    How about a little Bon Jovi as a theme song? (Although Storm Chasers is using it.)

    Why would anyone pay money to see Charlie "interviewed" in a nearly scripted manner?

    Winters,...
    Why ask why? :) I bet we could come up with a pretty long list of stuff we wouldn't pay to see.

    Winters,...
    On further thinking, is that the nature of this road show?

    And while I won't go, I am curious to know what'll happen if he makes it all the way to SF.

    You gotta admit he's quite the publicity-generator!

    People paid money to see Charlie Sheen. They didn't know what he was going to do, the format of the show or anything other than Charlie would be there.

    The people in Chicago apparently got a better deal than the people in Detroit thanks to the additional structure involved. Instead of pointless rambling the interview format kept the presentation on track.

    What I don't understand is why people would pay to see him at all. But there are a lot of things I wouldn't pay to see.

    Most are probably paying to see him just to say that they did see him.

    I admit I probably would if I had the money burning a hole in my pocket and he was coming to a city near me.

    It's just like driving past a bad car wreck. You know you shouldn't slow down and gawk, but somewhere in the back of brains make us do exactly that. Watching this man go down in flames is no different.

    That's one of the two thoughts that I had...

    #1. Why would you pay to see him?

    #2. How could you possibly be justified in complaining about his performance if you were willing to pay to see him, knowing all that he had been saying recently?

    I'm particularly amazed that anyone would pay to see his show sight-unseen... but on top of that, it's crazy to then complain you didn't get what you paid for... when it seems like people got exactly what they should have been expecting.
