I feel as if I’ve reached a new low in terms of my television-viewing; right after Monday night football, I was aimlessly flipping through the channels and ended up accidentally watching Two and a Half Men. I’ve never watched a full episode of the show before and if I did, I certainly wouldn’t admit it to anyone other than an infant or a friend’s pet. And I definitely wouldn’t admit it on a public forum.
But I couldn’t resist turning Two and a Half Men on because of what I like to call the Ashton Kutcher factor. Any time one character is replaced by a totally different character on any show, it makes it all that much more interesting. The Ashton Kutcher factor makes the show much more worthwhile in light of the tragedy that Ashton and Demi are publicly going through at the moment. In fact, the timing is so perfect for the drastic change in circumstances for Ashton and Demi, that I kind of have to wonder if the show actually planted whatshername in the hot tub just to seduce poor little Ashton.
