Charlie Sheen‘s off-set conduct is rapidly becoming a bigger issue with the TV execs who preside over his hit sitcom Two and a Half Men.
According to a new report from The Wrap, the show’s executive producer Chuck Lorre and network execs have been scrambling for answers — and examining contingency plans — after the actor made headlines again after a wild weekend in Las Vegas, complete with porn stars and alcohol.
Following the rowdy weekend, Sheen on Tuesday nearly missed his call time to shoot for the top-rated sitcom, the website reported.
The Wrap reported that CBS and Warner Bros. Television brass is “worried” about how to proceed with their sitcom star, who they inked to a two-year deal last May which pays him $1.8 million per episode. Options discussed include sending Sheen to rehab or even shutting down the show.
Two And A Half Men, which co-stars Jon Cryer, has been one of the network’s top-rated programs for the past eight years.
