Season 9
Two and a Half Men

Critics Consensus

Ashton Kutcher proves to be a game replacement for the unceremoniously departed Charlie Sheen, but Two and a Half Men feels exhausted and bitter as it trudges beyond its natural lifespan.

Whether this new dynamic will work is still an open question.

New sheriff, new abs. Now we wait to see if it finds new jokes.

Sep 16, 2013 | Full Review…

Another sitcom in a vast mostly undifferentiated sea of 'em.

Top Critic

Kutcher brings a softness as well as a sense of rude health to a series that could often be brittle and sour, misanthropic and misogynistic, and temperamentally middle-aged. His presence might allow Cryer to play some sweeter, less strident notes.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Maybe Two and a Half Men has simply lost its luster in the wake of Sheen-gate. Its departed star cast a huge, tiger-blood-shaped shadow - which is probably why the show is determined to keep airing plots that revolve around the absent Charlie.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

I realized that Ashton Kutcher is actually too good for this material. Then I splashed some cold water on my face, but the thought was still there.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

September 19, 2011. The night I actually felt sorry for Charlie Sheen. Never forget.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The King is dead. Long live the King. As Two And A Half Men live to fight another day.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

A cringe-worthy attempt at Chuck Lorre trying to satisfy a childish need to have the final word in one of television's most public feuds.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

I like Kutcher, Jon Cryer has always been good, and there's reason to believe year two of this reboot will more creatively consistent

Sep 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Putting aside the fact that Charlie Harper's death was treated as though he were some unseen, uncared about character on the show... there were some genuinely funny moments.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

But as likeable as he (Kutcher) is it doesn't change the fact that this show is ridiculously tired.

Audience Reviews for Two and a Half Men: Season 9

  • Jul 17, 2020
    Horrible show when Ashton Kutcher takes over. Unwatchable.
  • Sep 09, 2019
    Ashton Kutcher makes for a sudden and at times bland change from the three-dimensional Charlie Sheen, but the eighth season of Two and a Half Men still has its moments.

    how can i post 0 starts??
  • Apr 26, 2019
    (all seasons) You can tell by watching Season 1 why this was a hit: a catchy premise, great cast and snappy dialogue contributing to a very enjoyable laugh-fest characterized by remarkable consistency. Even more remarkably, the above goes on for a whopping 8 seasons. Yet, things take an unfortunate turn for the worse after that, ranging - occasional refreshing glimpses aside - from the average yet watchable to the completely formulaic and below-par, and culminating with the ill-advised "meta" finale. Winning?

    i prefer with charlie
  • Apr 20, 2014
    This season is completely unnecessary.
  • Dec 10, 2013
    The opening 10 episodes are tolerable but after that the show just slowly declines in humour and decency. Two and a Half Men has changed and not for the better.
