Last night was the season premiere of Two and a Half Men, and the first episode in which Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen. It was watched by 28 million people. THAT IS SO MANY PEOPLE! That is literally too many people. Some of those people definitely should have been doing something other than watching Two and a Half Men. I mean, hey, you like what you like, and that is no problem, but I am just saying that if 28 million people decided NOT to watch Two and a Half Men and to instead spend that half hour in a concerted effort to make the world a better place, who knows what kind of breakthroughs we might achieve! (Complains the guy who didn’t watch the show because he was too busy making the world a better place by getting way too drunk on overpriced drinks in SOHO on a Monday night for heaven’s sake because his friend was in town as if that makes it better.) Anyway, I’m going to assume that not one single person who reads Videogum actually watched the show last night, which is a wishful and false assumption, but let’s all pretend that we are equally in the dark about what actually happened, and make up captions explaining what this show is even about. (I actually do not even know what it was about when Charlie Sheen was on it. It’s about two kidnappers holding a boy for ransom, yes? But it turns out the boy has progeria and looks like a man? A half man? Good guess!) Something tells me our caption ideas for this show will still be funnier than this show, which is not that big of a deal, because this show is terrible. But still.

Winner will receive special placement in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. WINNING DUH WINNING BUH BYE WINNING TORPEDO!

  16. What’s up with Topher Grace?

  17. Your parents watch this show. A show that consists mostly of crass sex jokes. Now let that sink in for a bit.

  18. Two and a Half Men: two shitty actors tangentially related to the brat pack take Judd Nelson’s skeleton out for a night of partying in Denver.

  24. I wish they had cast another kid, and renamed the show “Two Men”. It would be fun to watch its audience could puzzle that one out for a while.

    • It takes longer, even with a chalkboard handy, as the radiation wave technology deployed by this show specifically target the mathematics and humour centres of the brain, popping your neurons like the little star shaped grapes they are.

    • it would be fun could type grammar more better

  36. This is not a caption, but a TRUE STORY!

    In class today, my professor said, “I know all you did your homework last night instead of watching Two and a Half Men.”

    Then someone was like, “But it’s so funny!!!!!”

    And then I was all *GUNSHOT*

    • This is exactly why I work from home.

    • The CEO of CBS is your classmate?

    • THEY FOUND A FERAL CHILD IN THE WOODS IN GERMANY. Well, really, he wandered out of the woods and figured out how to get to Berlin’s city hall and mostly only speaks English and his parents are dead and his teeth look funny but did you know you can go into Wikipedia for like 4 hours and ONLY READ ABOUT FERAL CHILDREN and then you know about the little green children of Wolfham or whatever but those kids were green and holy shit another wolf-boy in our time? And the last recorded actual feral child was in the 70s in the Inland Empire of Southern California (hahahahahaha, meth) but really that story is sad and the kid was neglected. But that’s not the point — the point is that a boy lived in the woods and doesn’t know who he is and his teeth are funny so he’s probably British and if I stay in Wikipedia long enough reading about wolf children I won’t have to read ANYTHING about Charlie Sheen or this show and eventually both will die or get cancelled or go back into their forests of Germany or whatever. Also, I’ve had a lot of coffee today.

  37. OMG! Jesus is outside my door. Sexy, stupid Jesus.

Gabe: You wouldn’t know him — he’s from Canada. Stabler: Well, what was the name of the bar? Gabe: The Gem Saloon? Stabler: You know what I think? I think you don’t have a friend. I think you sat in your little apartment and watched 2 1/2 Men. And I think you liked it.

  42. “That homeless man is telepathically stealing my SAND jar!!”

    Jon: “Dude, I’m sorry. Fuck it, Kelso, let’s go bowling.”

  57. Jon Cryer plays Davey, a ten-year-old boy trapped inside the body of a 32-year-old man trapped inside the body of a ten-year-old boy, who accidentally releases a genie, locked up in an urn since the 1970s, into his house while trying to order 100 cheese pizzas.

  62. Sales Department Caption: “Remember, sell the shit out of this season premiere episode because ad rates are gonna drop about 60% starting the following week!”

  63. Ok I fuckin watched it, I admit. You know we have to wait a week to see the Emmys in Australia but Two and a Half men is on within 10 hours?
