FORTY-THREE minutes into his “special live edition” with Charlie Sheen on Monday night, Piers Morgan finally got around to asking his guest a real question. Before that, Mr. Morgan and Mr. Sheen had mostly traded chuckles and anecdotes about multiday benders, inflated network salaries and meet-ups in Aspen, Colo. But then, after three commercial breaks, Mr. Morgan inquired, “Have you ever hit a woman?”
That Mr. Morgan didn’t press the issue of domestic violence shouldn’t have come as any surprise. CBS executives, not to mention the millions of viewers of his “family” sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” have consistently turned a blind eye toward Mr. Sheen’s history of abusing women. Part of this, of course, is about money. The actor’s F-18 of an id — to borrow a metaphor from Mr. Sheen himself — had long provided the show a steady stream of free publicity. It also helped make Mr. Sheen the highest-paid actor on television, at $1.2 million an episode.

Three cheers for those that Booed Sheen off of the stage. But, in the next breath I have to say shame on them for paying for a ticket to attend the blubbering idiot speak in the first place. What did they expect to hear from him? More "tiger's blood" I suppose.
I'm proud to say I have never seen an episode of Two and a Half Men. Not that I'm shap enough to have known how much of a F-ing idiot he is so I guess I'm just lucky.
Lee always love your comments.
Charlie Sheen is going insane, literally. It could be the drugs or his acting life or a little bit of both but he is crazy. I watched his interview on the Today Show. They did a drug test on him and surprisingly, he passed.
And yes, he is an asshole. I've seen a few movies of his but I have never, and will never, watch "Two & a half Men." I don't understand how he is the highest paid t.v actor. Over a million per episode? His acting skills aren't even that great...
Violence is not the answer.
