Warner Bros. Television and CBS announced late today (Friday) that it is putting their top-rated sitcom Two and a Half Men on production hiatus, after learning that its co-star, Charlie Sheen had entered a rehabilitation facility. In a joint statement they said, “We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being and support his decision.” On Thursday, Sheen was hospitalized for what was said to be a hiatal hernia, but he was expected to return to work on Monday. Producers of the sitcom gave no indication how long the production hiatus might last . A spokesman for the actor issued a statement saying, “Mr. Sheen asks that his privacy be respected at this time and that no additional information will be provided.” The name of the rehab facility was not disclosed. On Wednesday night, John Cryer, Sheen’s costar on Two and a Half Men told Conan O’Brien that even he is surprised by the tabloid tales about Sheen. “It’s always a little weird because the stuff you hear is just unbelievable,” Cryer remarked. “I’m checking [gossip website] TMZ, as I do every day to see if I have to go to work at all.”
