Tonight’s episode of the CBS comedy TWO AND A HALF MEN sees the return of the not-so-dearly-departed Charlie Harper as he appears before his recently hospitalized brother Alan. No, CHARLIE SHEEN isn’t back on the scene, instead KATHY BATES lights up a cigar and dons a bowling shirt to play the ghost of the irascible womanizer. As Alan, JON CRYER plays one of the most accident-prone characters on TV today. At the Television Critics Association press conference to promote this season’s shows, CRYER joked about how working on this series could be the death of him. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
