(Newser) – CBS has had enough of Charlie Sheen's antics, at least for this season. The network says it has canceled production of Two and a Half Men for the rest of the season following bizarre rants from the actor against the sitcom's creator yesterday. Sheen—referring to Chuck Lorre by his birth name, Chaim Levine—called Lorre a "clown," a "turd," and a "contaminated little maggot," in a radio interview with Alex Jones and in a letter to TMZ, the New York Daily News reports.

Sheen slammed Lorre for putting the show on hiatus while he was in rehab. "I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process," he told Jones, saying Alcoholics Anonymous was for "sissies" and he had cured his addictions with the power of his mind. "I'm dealing with fools and trolls," Sheen said of people who criticize his lifestyle. "They lay down with their ugly wives in front of their ugly children and just look at their loser lives and then they look at me and say 'I can't process it."

Uh ...Charlie you may want to have a heart to heart with Robert Downey, Jr on this - he's already been down that road and can tell you how hard it is for the studios to accept you back...and IMO he is a much better actor than you and even he had a hard time.
