“Two and a Half Men,” 9 p.m. KGPE (Channel 47.1): The departure of Charlie Sheen from the CBS Monday-night comedy was such a nasty affair, the only way he would ever make a return to the show is over his own dead body.
That sort of happens tonight.
After Alan (Jon Cryer) suffers a minor heart attack, he’s visited in the hospital by Charlie’s ghost. No, Sheen doesn’t return to offer words of wisdom from beyond. It is Academy Award winner Kathy Bates, who takes time away from her NBC series “Harry’s Law,” portraying the departed Charlie Harper.
It would have been nice to see Sheen back on the show. But, the idea of Bates playing Charlie is a far more interesting casting.
