Charlie Sheen fired from "Two and a Half Men"

LOS ANGELES - The makers of top-rated US TV comedy "Two and A Half Men" said on Monday they had ended actor Charlie Sheen's contract with the show.
"After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen's services on "Two and a Half Men" effective immediately," Warner Bros Television said in a statement.
Sheen is the highest paid actor on US television and "Two and A Half Men" is the most popular comedy for network CBS which broadcasts the series.
But the remainder of the season was canceled in February after Sheen made a series of insulting remarks about producer and co-creator Chuck Lorre in radio and Internet interviews.
