CBS’ hit comedy series “Two and a Half Men” remained strong in Week 2 with new co-star Ashton Kutcher.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the second Charlie Sheen-less episode of “Men” pulled in 20.3 million viewers with a 7.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, down about 30% compared to last week’s record shattering premiere, which averaged a 10.7 rating in the demo and 28.7 million viewers.
So that basically means that 20 million of the 29 people who watched last week, tuned in this week as well, which is pretty good!
On average, “Two and a Half Men” (the Charlie Sheen version) would get anywhere from 10 million (at an extreme low) to 15 million viewers per episode, so as long as the show stays above 15, the new Ashton Kutcher version will be considered a success. It will definitely be interesting to see the ratings for next week though.
