'Two and a Half Men' Officially Renewed for Season 10
Ashton Kutcher successfully sustains the life span of "Two and a Half Men". CBS has just renewed the sitcom for a tenth season after completing a new license agreement with series producer, Warner Bros. TV.
In addition, Kutcher and his co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones will also receive a small raise in their paycheck. THR heard from a source that Kutcher will be making $725,000 per episode instead of $700,000. Cryer makes a little less than that, while Jones earns about half what Kutcher does. They both will also receive a small bump in the numbers.
The lead actors have signed a new one-year deal earlier this month. One of the showrunners, Lee Aronsohn, however, will not return and will be replaced by executive producers Don Reo and Jim Patterson. Nevertheless, Aronsohn will still serve as an executive consultant.
With Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen, "Men" averaged 15 million viewers in season 9. Although there was a slight dip in the later part of the season, it still posted gains in the key demographics, becoming No. 3 primetime comedy in adults 18-49 behind "Modern Family" and "The Big Bang Theory".
