Watch a Short Documentary About Patton Oswalt Playing a Gig in Orange County

Ashton Kutcher's YouTube channel Thrash Lab made this short documentary following Patton Oswalt playing a gig in the sterile, lifeless city of Irvine in Orange County, California. The documentary was directed by Julien Nitzberg, who made The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia, and this is pretty much like that movie but boiled down to 11 minutes and about a comedian.

'Two and Half Men' to Get a 10th Season; Enters Rare Company

It was announced today that all the principle cast of Two and a Half Men will return for the show's 10th season. Say what you will about how awful the show is – seriously, please comment on how awful it is because it is awful – that is a lot of season. It will become the 11th live action sitcom ever to get to 10 seasons (list below). It is noteworthy and truly a testament to the ability of millions of people to stomach ham-fisted sexual innuendo and half-men. We should be proud?

Ashton Kutcher Credits Robin Williams For Two And A Half Men Move

Guys, I gotta tell you, I love all the jokes about David Letterman's jihadists death threats. That bullet-proof vest that says "Not Dave" is really hitting the spot for some reason. If you happened to watch Dave last night, in addition to a little fatwa humor you got to see how Ashton Kutcher's Two And A Half Men role was indirectly predestined by an off-hand remark from Robin Williams. To That '70s Show dad Kurtwood Smith. In 1998. "He said, I only wish I could back and do a sitcom again," Kutcher explains. "And I never forgot that when I was on That ‘70s Show because I [...]

The Justin Bieber/Ashton Kutcher Time-Travel Buddy Comedy Rumor Of The Day

The idea of the Justin Bieber and Ashton buddy comedy What Would Kenny Do?, starring Kutcher as a time-traveling hologram of Bieber's older self, might not necessarily make us want to scamper to Fandango. The fact that the original script was reportedly filled with R-rated material, however, does. We're hoping Kutcher journeys through the time-space continuum to warn Bieber away from a life of contract killing and/or meth labbery. But you know it's just going to be about some girl or something.

TBS Stays in the Conan Business with 'Deon Cole's Black Box'

TBS announced that it's working with Conan O'Brien's production company on Deon Cole's Black Box. The show features Conan writer Deon Cole cracking wise at video clips, with a focus on race, gender, and politics. Cole is very funny writer and performer so this is great news, regardless if it's just another show where a comedian makes jokes about videos. TBS is also working with Ashton Kutcher on Who Gets the Last Laugh?, a show where comedians compete to prank regular people. It's perfect for people who liked Punk'd but wished it were more mean spirited. After the jump, check out more videos of Deon Cole because he [...]

Two And A Half Men Ratings Sink, Remain Untouchable

It's a testament to how much Two And A Half Men kills it with the American public (compared to practically any other sitcom) when their ratings can plummet and yet still be the one of the biggest games in town. E! explains how, while the show has experienced declines for the fourth week in a row, that just means they end up with 15.8 million viewers for last week's episode. While competitors like Dancing With The Stars have lured away audience members, CBS still averages 4.0 rating among adults age 18 to 49, even with season lows for all of its comedies: How I Met Your Mother, Broke [...]

Two And A Half Men Premiere Kicks Off With Charlie's Funeral

In an unsubtle a metaphor as is allowed on network television, Chuck Lorre delivers a final "fuck you" to his former star by having the Two And A Half Men season premiere feature Charlie Harper's funeral. Deadline reports that the Sept. 19 episode will kick-off with Charlie Sheen's character already deceased, making me wonder how many takes were ruined by Lorre's maniacal off-screen laughter. The first episode of the show's ninth season will also feature visits from Charlie's ex-girlfriends as they come to pay their respects, after which the house will be put on the market. Ashton Kutcher stops by as a potential homeowner, and will allegedly [...]

Ivan Reitman Is Considering Ruining Ghostbusters For Everyone by Casting Ashton Kutcher

Oh, dear. Apparently Ivan Reitman is considering casting Ashton Kutcher in Ghostbusters 3? Bill Murray! The fate of this movie is in your hands! Please do the right thing! People still have fond memories of a Ghostbusters franchise that doesn't involve Ashton Kutcher. Let's keep it that way.

Is This Ashton Kutcher Video Racist or Just Unfunny?

Ashton Kutcher is doing a new campaign for PopChips in which he portrays different characters in a bunch of "dating videos." One of them is "Raj," an indian man that you can see above. It's being called racist by a bunch of different people, most notably by tech pundit Anil Dash. Is it racist? He's wearing "brownface," which isn't the same as blackface, which is offensive and racist because of its history, not just because people are wearing makeup. And I don't like flinging accusations of racism or offensiveness at comedians unless it's really, truly warranted; comedians deserve the benefit of the doubt for the most part. [...]

Watching the Sheen-to-Kutcher Transition on Two and a Half Men

I kept an open mind, I really did. Before watching last night’s episode of Two and a Half Men, I dismissed everything I knew about the show: the boffo ratings, the slimy acting of Charlie Sheen, the “why are you doing this, Duckie?” feeling I get every time Jon Cryer is in on screen, the perplexing appeal of Angus T. Jones, etc. I didn’t want to immediately dismiss the show, because that’s what people who like Parks and Recreation and Community are supposed to do. That felt too easy, too expected. Besides, it was starting anew, with Kelso!

But god damn was that a bad episode.
