After the TAHM Season 9 premiered to nearly 30 million viewers, Charlie Sheen had nothing but glowing reviews for the cast. Now that the show has lost half it's viewers for the remainder of the episodes, Charlie is finally speaking his mind.
Sheen thinks the show sucks in general and that Ashton is doing the best with what he's got.
“He's doing the best he can. I don't think the role is cursed, but I'm extremely disappointed with how they're handling what I left behind," Sheen tells TMZ.
The Season 9 premiere had 27.8 million eyeballs. I don't know who these 27.8 million viewers are. There's got to be a weird part of the mid-west were they only have access to CBS, that's got to be the only explanation. Besides insane numbers for a show that appears to be written by a 13-year-old boy who just discovered that he has balls, the new episodes only have 14.85 million viewers.
When TMZ asked Charlie to comment on the shows recent decline in ratings, he said, "People aren't stupid, you know. Not all of them."
What does that mean? Is he saying that people aren't stupid, so everyone's finally realizing that they shouldn't watch this show anymore?
I think the problem with TAHM is that they didn't want to get rid of the "Charlie's Mansion" set. So the easiest way to incorporate Ashton's character, Walden, into the new show is just place him in Charlie's old bedrooms and recycle all the old story lines. Heyo, Walden hooks up with a hot girl and Alan doesn't!? Never seen that before! Ba-Dum-Ching, you're welcome 27.8 million viewers!
However, Charlie can't really talk smack about the new TAHM. During Charlie's last season on the show, the peak number of viewers was 15.56 million and the average rating for Season 8 was about 13 or 14 million viewers. So really, Ashton isn't doing that poorly.
Now that Charlie's all sobered up, he's finally discovering human emotions again, namely, JEALOUSY.
However, when the season debuted Charlie was surprisingly really impressed with the show.
"I think everybody won. I thought the show was really good. I thought [Ashton] was terrific," Charlie previously stated, "It was a little bizarre watching it, but yeah, for the most part I was really impressed with what they did."
He also praised the first episode saying it was as good as the first episode he did 8 years ago, "I think [the show has] got a real shot. It felt like a pilot. It felt like a really good pilot."
Oh how the tables have turned!
