Charlie Sheen staying on 'Two and a Half Men'

Charlie Sheen has made a two-year deal to stick with "Two and a Half Men."

This will keep CBS' Monday night comedy block in strong place for another season (three out of four shows working ain't bad).

Sheen's publicist released this statement: “To put a fitting end on the two and one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I’m looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights. I want to thank Les Moonves for his support.” 

Sheen initially wanted $2 million per episode, but at least one report says Warner Bros climbed significantly from its initial offer (which sources say was around $1 million).

It also means that the Sheen camp's "He's leaving the show!" leaks were probably at least 50% negotiation ploy.
