Charlie Sheen Is Winning

Charlie Sheen, the highest paid actor ($800k per episode) on TV's highest rated comedy, has been fired.

CBS cut ties with the "Two and a Half Men" star and plan to take the show in a different direction. My guess: off the air

They don't have a show without Sheen. There are only two reasons people watch: the guys live in a Malibu beach house and watching Charlie make fun of his brother.

The drama has been lingering for months about Sheen's wild behavior, which reportedly did not affect life on set. And now that his profile has risen to elite status, e.g. the fastest to gain one million Twitter followers, they fire him. CBS is the most watched network on TV for a reason--by making better decisions than this.

I expect many offers to fly Sheen's way. Maybe another turn as tiger blood-filled Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in the Major League series.

If not, he'll continue to live it up with booze, drugs and porn stars.

Either way, he wins.
