The big entertainment news this weekend that didn’t relate to the Oscars, clothing, or James Franco doing his best impression of a Lay’s Baked potato chip was that Charlie Sheen has finally accomplished what we all thought was impossible; production has been halted on “Two and a Half Men.” I’m sure you’ve all seen or heard the rant itself, or seen quotes from it placed on photos of adorable kittens which makes everything seem funnier and less like it came from the mouth of an unbalanced man who has probably burned through at least one septum with his coke usage. I’m thrilled because it always baffled me that a country that got up in arms over whether Lea Michele’s shirt exposed too much of her sternum on the cover of Cosmo didn’t say a word about a known drug abusing, hooker frequenting, girlfriend punching public relations disaster like Mr.Sheen appearing in one of the most popular comedies on television. But now that long nightmare is over, for now. Here’s your Monday night TV:
8:00pm: “90210” on The CW
“Antiques Roadshow” on PBS
“The Bachelor” on ABC
“Bait Car” on TruTV
“Chuck” on NBC
“House” on Fox
“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS
“Pretty Little Liars” on ABC Family
“You’re Cut Off” on VH1. Second season finale.
8:30pm: “Mad Love” on CBS
9:00pm: “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” on Travel. Seventh season. Mr.Bourdain will be in Haiti.
“The Bad Girls Club: Flo Gets Married” on Oxygen. Special presentation. I would think that “I appeared on ‘The Bad Girls Club’” would be a deal breaker for most people. Strange.
“Being Human” on SyFy
“Cake Boss” on TLC
“The Cape” on NBC
“The Chicago Code” on Fox
“Gossip Girl” on The CW
“Greek” on ABC Family
“Triangle Fire: American Experience” on PBS. I’m wondering if the timing of this has anything to do with the situation in Wisconsin. A sort of “yeah, those awful unions, wasn’t it great when we didn’t have them and you could leave workers to burn to death at locked fire escape doors? Good times.”
“Searching For…” on OWN
“Top Gear” on BBCA
“WWE: RAW” on USA
9:30pm: Mike and Molly” on CBS
“Outrageous Kid Parties” on TLC
10:00pm: “19 Kids and Counting” on TLC

“Castle” on ABC
“Fashion Police: The 2011 Oscars” on E
“Harry’s Law” on NBC
