Charlie Sheen's Meltdown Boosts "Two and a Half Men" Ratings

| by

 We guess it's true when they say all press is good press - especially for Charlie Sheen, who, since his naked drunken/high rampage in a New York City hotel room last week, has seen Two and a Half Men ratings skyrocket.

According to The Hollywood Reporter,

"There's no such thing as bad Charlie Sheen press. Two and a Half Men climbed in ratings Monday night following a week of ongoing rumors and controversy surrounding the CBS star, proving once again that viewers shrug off his tabloid-headline habits.

"Men (13.6 million viewers, 4.7 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) was up 7% for an episode titled "The Crazy Bitch Gazette." With Men resuming production this week, Sheen is expected to be back on the set today."

So there we go: it looks like a naked drunken/high rampage with a porn star in your room if you're a sitcom actor will improve your ratings by 7%. We're somehow positive that this only works if you're Charlie Sheen.
