Two and a Half Men Show Creator is misogynistic. News at 11

3:06 pm - 04/02/2012
TORONTO – Two and a Half Men co-creator Lee Aronsohn insists Ashton Kutcher wants to return to the hit TV sitcom for a tenth season. CBS just needs to write a big check to keep Kutcher and co-star Jon Cryer on board.
"All Ashton has said is he likes working with us and would like to do more. … It's just a basic negotiation between CBS and the actors because CBS is picking up the tab," Aronsohn told The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday while attending the Toronto Screenwriting Conference.
"They’re (CBS and Warner Bros.) trying to make a deal that will allow the show to remain profitable, to remain on the air," he added. Aronsohn’s comments follow negotiations to bring CBS' Two and a Half Men back for a tenth season, the first without Charlie Sheen, apparently nearing a successful conclusion.
Kutcher last year signed a one-year deal to test whether he could replace Sheen on the sitcom’s reboot, and CBS is looking to renew for another season. Aronsohn also appears in no hurry to pull the plug on the highly-watched sitcom, especially when a large crew depends on Two and a Half Men for their livelihood. "While it’s nice to go out on the top, it’s hard to look people in the face and say, we're going out because I made my money," he insisted.
Besides, the male sitcom writer isn't a fan of the current crop of female-centered comedies like Whitney and Two Broke Girls.

"Enough ladies. I get it. You have periods," Aronsohn commented.

He applauded women like Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler and Tina Fey securing a voice to discuss formerly taboo subjects on TV.

"But we’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation," he added.
The current female TV boom contrasts with Two and a Half Men mostly portraying women as bimbos, something Aronsohn isn't about to apologize for.

“Screw it… We're centering the show on two very damaged men. What makes men damaged? Sorry, it’s women. I never got my heart broken by a man,” Aronsohn earlier told the Toronto conference during a keynote address.
Later, he clarified by insisting he was hardly one to take the moral high ground. "We do far too many fart jokes on Two and a Half Men. I’m the last person to judge," he conceded.

How disgusting. And to think people watch this piece of shit of television show and think it's okay to act the way the characters act. Ugh.

Well, see, the way it works is that men in their teens and early 20's are the real audience for everything, and any show that appeals to anyone else is just a novelty. I mean, it's not like women are a significant portion of the population or anything.

Who wants to start a riot grrl band called Labia Saturation?
lux_roark 2nd-Apr-2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
I was so busy with my other band, Nephi and the Investigators, but I really think that Labia Saturation would take off more than the other one
jasonbeast 2nd-Apr-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
Still baffles me that anybody actually watches this POS.
lovedforaday 2nd-Apr-2012 06:42 pm (UTC)
I don't get it either. My mom is a boomer who likes a lot of unfunny crap and even she hate 2aaHM.

"What makes men damaged? Sorry, it’s women. I never got my heart broken by a man"

Probably because you don't date men? Seriously WTF is up with that logic?
livinghope 2nd-Apr-2012 07:40 pm (UTC)
Seriously. I mean, it doesn't surprise that me that he would say something idiotic, but this is just a special brand of stupid.

TBH, I never knew there was a quota for how many T.V. shows that are women-centered. There doesn't seem to be a quota for men-centered T.V. shows, so why for women? *smacks forehead* Oh, that's right, if men don't have everything they whine that they don't have anything.

This guy makes a stupid shitty show, not surprised to learn he is a stupid shitty person. If he turned out to be intelligent, thoughtful, and respectful of women, now THEN I would have been surprised.

I have loathed that show since the get go, which breaks my heart since it has Jon Cryer on it and I so wanted to be the gay (ok, gayER) Duckie Dale in high school. But that show....eeeeesch. I tried to watch it once with my parents because my Dad really likes it. I couldn't make it through a single show because there was just SO MUCH FAIL.
The fact that it's still on the air after however many seasons just makes me weep for the future of the species.

We're centering the show on two very damaged men. What makes men damaged? Sorry, it’s women. I never got my heart broken by a man.

Oh good and he's throwing in that he's kind of got the homophobic thing going on too. SUR-prise. This guy is just a goldmine of dumbshittery.

Jon Cryer's a republican if that makes you feel any better.

A grandiose sense of entitlement?

aviv_b 2nd-Apr-2012 07:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you, thank you, exactly what I was thinking. Damaged men because their egos aren't constantly being stroked because, suprise! women have lives of their own.
keestone 2nd-Apr-2012 06:58 pm (UTC)
Why am I not at all surprised that this is the kind of guy who would hire Charlie Sheen?
mercystars 2nd-Apr-2012 07:00 pm (UTC)
well ~somebody~ feels threatened
briknowsbest 2nd-Apr-2012 07:13 pm (UTC)
None of the shows mentioned (2aaHM, Whitney, 2BG) are even funny. Cancel them all
oatmealia 2nd-Apr-2012 07:20 pm (UTC)
lol pretty much. but i do love 30 rock, so i'm pissed at him for that.

Quite frankly, between this douche and Charlie Sheen, I'm surprised they could ever stop stroking their penises long enough to film an episode.

Don't you just love seeing women boiled down to nothing but our genitalia? -_-

Also, pretty sure there are plenty of men who have had their hearts broken by men.

Ugh. UGH. I hate he also writes for the BBT. Yayy nerds. But oh, hey look at the fucking sex offender (Wallowitz.)

Walowitz makes me so pissed that I can barely watch that show. Between him and Leonard, just ... ugh. I love Penny & Sheldon (& Raj for the most part), but those two make me want to punch things.

1) Stop watching the lesbian porn channel, you cockhead.

2) Dick jokes. Dick jokes everywhere. All the time. Because dicks are funny but vaginas are gross, and it is acceptable to reduce women to their sexual organs. It is righteous and acceptable for a dude to be a dick, because not all dudes are dicks, but all women are vaginas and all vaginas are meant to be stuffed with dicks, etc. etc. bros before hoes Tucker Max is a man-god go fuck yourself.

"But we’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation,"

Shall we tally the number of male-centered shows and the number of female-centered shows, just in the last decade? I'd be impressed if the female-centered shows reached double fucking digits, you goddamn assclown.

WHITE MEN ARE NOT IN DANGER OF BECOMING EXTINCT. STOP FUCKING ACTING LIKE YOU GODDAMN ARE, SHIT.
