According to the Associated Press, Warner Brothers announced today that they have fired Charlie Sheen from this show  “Two and a Half Men.”

The official statement read, “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on “Two and a Half Men” effective immediately.”

The studio, which owns and produces the series, will decide about the future of the show at a later date, a spokesman said.

The move comes after CBS and Warner Brothers discontinued the latest season of the show after Mr. Sheen verbally attacked the show’s executive producer. After the show was discontinued, Charlie continued to berate the producer, Chuck Lorre, giving a series of interviews to the morning shows of two networks, a gossip Web site and a Los Angeles radio station.
