After 11 seasons, someone is apologizing for “Two and a Half Men.” That person is the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.
At Sunday’s (June 1) Television Academy Honors, which recognizes shows creating change for social issues, Lorre was recognized for “Mom” episode “Zombies and Cobb Salad.” Variety reports he accepted the honor with a bit of a joke.
“To do a show about people trying to redeem their lives and to salvage and repair the damage they’ve done, for me, it’s an opportunity to apologize for ‘Two and a Half Men’,” he said to the audience.
It’s not clear exactly what Lorre is apologizing for, but “Two and a Half Men” has had more than it’s fair share of drama over the years, from the Charlie Sheen debacle to Angus T. Jones leaving the show. Maybe he’s just sorry it’s still going. After all, there’s not even a half man anymore.
“Two and a Half Men” will return in the fall for its final season on CBS.
