Filthy 'Men'

Posted on November 27, 2012 

You sort of have to wonder about the thought processes of Angus T. Jones, the actor who puts the "half" in "Two and a Half Men."

Jones recently made a series of videos for his church where he decried his series as "filth" and urged people to stop watching.

This is the same series that has earned Jones millions of dollars over the past several years, by the way.

Here's what Jones said in one of the videos:

"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men. I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."

You may remember that Jones' former co-star, Charlie Sheen, also denounced the show shortly before he was fired. Of course, Sheen was under the influence of a variety of drugs at the time.

I'm not a fan of "Men," but obviously the show still carries a large fan base. Jones is old enough now that he could have made the decision to walk away from the show on his own terms rather than trash it. It doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me.

It will be interesting to see how CBS and the producers react to Jones' videos. It will also be interesting to see how many future producers want to employ Jones if he goes out of his way to trash his own work.

TUESDAY'S BEST BETS: "Leverage" (TNT, 10 p.m.) is back tonight for the first of five episodes in which the team tries to stop a big box store from putting other stores in a small town out of business. If they'd just wait a few months, I'm sure the economy will take of the job for them.

Also on cable, "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 10 p.m.) is again 90 minutes, or as I like to think of it, 50 percent more of additional awesomeness.

On the networks, ABC airs the classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Shrek the Halls" from 8-9 p.m., followed by "Dancing With The Stars."

CBS' lineup of "NCIS," "NCIS: LA" and "Vegas" is new, as is "The Voice," "Go On," "The New Normal" and "Parenthood" on NBC.

Fox airs new installments of its Tuesday sitcoms, while The CW has "Hart of Dixie" and "Emily Owens, MD" from 8-10 p.m.
