Charlie Sheen is NOT leaving Two and a Half Men – all the negotiating paid off, he signed for 2 more seasons. We don’t know exactly how much he’ll get per episode but my guess is that it’s close to 2 million bucks. CBS will be announcing their big fall lineup tomorrow.


You might want to sit down. Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) has shaved his head. I know. HUGE. Now most of the pics taken show a ballcap covering his beautiful lid, but it looks as though the luscious head of hair is gone. (I think it’s for his new movie called Water For Elephants with Reese Witherspoon). Don’t worry, it’ll grow ladies.


Just how important has Glee become to Fox? So important that it's been handed the plum post-Super Bowl time slot for next year. The musical series will also be moved to the Tuesday 8:00 p.m. Eastern time slot this fall as a lead-in to two of Fox's new comedies. It will later switch to Wednesday nights once American Idol returns in midseason.

Fox on Monday also announced a few changes to American Idol during its presentation of its 2010-2011 schedule. Idol's Tuesday-night performance shows will be expanded from one hour to 90 minutes, while its Wednesday-night results shows will be downsized from one hour to 30 minutes. The revisions no doubt were a response to Idol's declining ratings, though it's still one of the highest-rated primetime shows on TV. Not surprisingly, the network also said replacing outgoing judge SIMON COWELL is a top priority.

Somewhat surprisingly, Fox renewed two shows that were considered to be facing cancellation: Lie to Me and Human Target. The network's new programming will include Lonestar, a primetime soap opera about a Texas family; Raising Hope, a comedy starring CLORIS LEACHMAN and focusing on a pool cleaner who raises a baby; and Running Wilde, featuring Arrested Development's WILL ARNETT chasing down a former high school love interest, played by former Felicity actress KERI RUSSELL. The detective series The Good Guys, which will air a preview episode this week, also has a slot on the fall schedule.

Fox's midseason entries are headlined by STEVEN SPIELBERG's Terra Nova, about a family from the future who travels to prehistoric times. There's also the cop series Ride-Along, an animated show titled Bob's Burgers, and a comedy titled Mixed Signals, centering around three friends in relationships who seek time away from their partners.
