Two and a Half Men?
CBS is set to unveil its autumn schedule for advertisers on May 18. That puts deadline pressure on the network, Warner and the show's executive producer to develop a post-Charlie Sheen version of the sitcom or end it.
An executive close to the situation said the parties are weighing if the show will return, who could replace Sheen in the cast and whether a revamped Two and a Half Men could be ready for autumn or have to wait until midseason.
The executive spoke on condition of anonymity on Friday because Warner and CBS would not authorise public comment on the show's status.
