"Charlie Sheen has been the signature comedy star for the CBS Television Network by playing a character so unbelievably lucky — and reprehensible by the standards of both pious conservatives and the politically correct — that everybody watching laughs their asses off and gives the show epic ratings. But when Charlie Sheen reprises his role off the shooting set, people condemn him, question his sanity, and sympathize with the network and producers who have built a billion-dollar industry around his unique talent."

    To fully understand this tempest in a teapot, follow the money! A guess would be that Sheen is making "too much" and the producers are making "too little." This guess is based partially on the trend in network TV toward "reality" shows which fills air time with low-cost productions.
