List of Two and a Half Men episodes

The first season of Two and a Half Men, an American television series created by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, that aired its pilot episode on September 22, 2003, at 9:30 p.m., ET/PT, on CBS, a U.S. broadcast television network. The pilot received great reviews and an Artios Award nomination for Best Casting for TV, Comedy Pilot (Nikki Valko, Ken Miller).[1] In the week of October 1, 2003, the series was ranked 7th highest in the top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research, with an average 12.1/18 rating.[2] Thanks to this, the series was able to air another 23 episodes, and was renewed for a second season in 2004.[3] The DVD set was released on Region 2 on September 12, 2005, and on Region 1 on September 11, 2007. Its bonus material included: a blooper, outtakes, a backstage tour with Angus T. Jones and a behind-the-scenes special, with the cast and crew of Two and a Half Men.

Production[edit]

The series is set in a large oceanfront home in Malibu, California, although most of the series is filmed in Burbank, California at the Warner Brothers Burbank Studios at 4000 Warner Boulevard.[4] The show features Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper, Jon Cryer as Alan Harper, Angus T. Jones as Jake Harper, Holland Taylor as Evelyn Harper, Melanie Lynskey as Rose and Marin Hinkle as Judith Harper. Conchata Ferrell as Berta had a recurring role in the first season, but became a main cast member in the following season. The song, "Manly Men", was written by the show's creator Chuck Lorre,[5] and the signature opening intro features the theme being lip-synced by the show's three main actors, but they are not the original performers. One of the performers is Elizabeth Daily[5]

Casting[edit]

Originally, actress Blythe Danner was cast to portray Evelyn Harper, but when she started to suggest changes to scenes, she was dismissed by the producers; one of the bosses commented: "Blythe is a wonderful actress who was put in a part that was not a good fit for her."[6]

"Most Chicks Won't Eat Veal", the original pilot, with Danner as Evelyn, remained unaired.[7][8] According to the Internet Movie Database, Sheen was cast because the creators saw him on Spin City, in which he also portrayed a lonely bachelor afraid of commitment. The show was becoming a huge hit, and breathed much needed life into Sheen's fading career. Before their reunion on the series, Cryer and Sheen had both appeared in the comedy Hot Shots.[9] Other connections between the actors are that Taylor, Sheen and Cryer have each appeared in a John Hughes film (Sheen in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Cryer in Pretty in Pink and Taylor in She's Having a Baby),[5] and that Jones, Ferrell, Taylor and Hinkle have all made guest appearances in ER. Additionally, Sheen and Cryer each made guest appearances on the animated series Family Guy

Cast[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper (24 episodes), a happy-go-lucky, jingle-writing bachelor whose life is turned upside-down when his brother moves in after his wife kicks him out, and he brings his son on the weekends. Charlie has a poor relationship with his mother, and has sex with an endless string of women.
  • Jon Cryer as Dr. Alan Harper (24 episodes), Charlie's younger brother. A chiropractor who is thrown out by his wife of twelve years, Judith Harper, and is the father of Jake, an eating machine. Alan's life turns upside down when he is left separated, paying alimony and child support to a conniving, vindictive ex-wife.
  • Angus T. Jones as Jake Harper (24 episodes), the son of Alan and Judith Harper who is recently traumatized by the separation of his parents. Jake is considerably sharp-witted for a boy his age, but his personality drastically changes as the series progresses.
  • Marin Hinkle as Judith Harper (18 episodes), the conniving, self-absorbed, vindictive, and humorless ex-wife of Alan Harper and mother of Jake Harper. Judith kicked Alan out in the pilot episode, and then told him that she is gay, but was later seen with random men and also seduced him. Judith collects alimony and child support from Alan and has not since held up a job.
  • Melanie Lynskey as Rose (16 episodes), the boundary-challenged stalker of Charlie Harper. They had a one-night stand and she will not let him forget it, claiming that she loves him. Regardless, the two eventually become close friends. Rose has a great relationship with Jake and eventually forms friendships with Alan, Berta, and Evelyn.
  • Holland Taylor as Evelyn Harper (15 episodes), the four-time widowed mother of Charlie and Alan Harper. Evelyn has her own real estate agency, is sexually rapacious and has a bad relationship with her sons and grandson. Evelyn despises Judith and Berta.
