Holland Taylor, Two and a Half Men
If you were ever a fan of Bosom Buddies, and you now watch CBS' Two and a Half Men (Mondays at 9 pm/ET), not many a week goes by where a line delivery or physical flourish from Holland Taylor doesn’t harken back to the days of Kip, Henry, and the Livingston, Gentry and Mishkin ad agency. Taylor's Ruth Dunbar was a role that would pave the way for many more women to be reckoned with. TVGuide.com welcomed the chance to take a walk down memory lane with Taylor, dropping such names along the way as Hanks, Clooney, Pfeiffer and Sheen.

OK, I know its cliché, but sometimes you really dont know what youve got till its gone. However, since this is the week of Valentines Day, I guess its only appropriate that we got a lesson in love. How strange, though, that this lesson came to us courtesy of Charlie and Rose? First, major props to Berta for some priceless moments tonight. Especially during her exchange with Charlie on why he never gave Rose more of a chance. His reasoning: This is a woman who stalked me, who spied on me, who snuck into my house to write her name and address in my underwear. Funny how Charlie would later use said underwear to track Rose down and beg her to stay, but well get to that later. Now, I have to recount Bertas priceless response: Oh, boo-hoo. Somebody cares about Charlie. Nobody ever wrote their name in my underwear. Wait, one time. The Department of Corrections. Too funny. I wish Berta was my wisecracking maid. ...
Emannuelle Vaugier, Two and a Half Men
Someone's getting married tonight on the season finale of CBS' Two and a Half Men, and it may or may not be Charlie Sheen's man who loves women. (The first clue should have been when Charlie Harper registered himself at Scores.) Emmanuelle Vaugier, who plays fiancée Mia, brings TVGuide.com up to speed on the nuptials that may be nope-tials.

When does two and a half equal more than 16 million? When you're talking about CBS' top-rated Monday-night sitcom and the massive audience that tunes in to watch Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen play dad and uncle to a wisecracking kid. As if you aren't already tuning in to Two and a Half Men, note that tonight's episode promises to be, well, special, thanks to a certain guest star who only has eyes for Cryer's lovelorn Alan. TVGuide.com spoke to the film and TV vet about that, Duckie and more.
TVGuide.com: First off, I want to say that I loved your series The Famous Teddy Z, which offered an inside look at the talent-agency biz. Do you agree that i
Two and a Half Men
9:10 am The session begins, and with Charlie Sheen up there like a sitting duck, I'm bummed that the first question isn't, "So, why did Denise dump you?" Does that make me a bad person? I think it does.
9:19 "We have to have fart jokes [on the show]," reasons Sheen's TV mom, the regal Holland Taylor, "because everyone in the cast farts constantly." Tee-hee. Holland Taylor said "farts."
9:25 A reporter asks another question that isn't, "I have to ask: You. Denise. What's the deal there, huh?" Bummer.
9:40 Scoop! Charlie confirms that his real-life pa, Martin Sheen, will guest-star this season.
9:45 Speaking on behalf of chiropractors everywhere, a reporter informs Jon Cryer — who plays a back-cracker on Men — that "they love the fact that you're giving them a face."
An old adage has it that if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. That's true, unless you're Jon Cryer. In his case, it's try, try, try, try, try and try again. The actor did five failed TV series before he landed a successful sitcom, CBS's Two and a Half Men. Which reminds him of another wise saying: Better late than never.
TV Guide Online: After a couple of false starts, like The Famous Teddy Z and Partners, you've finally got a hit. Can you relax and enjoy the adulation?Jon Cryer: There's a part of me that holds back. At our 10th-season finale, then I might say, "I get that the show is a hit."
TVGO: What do you hear most from the show's fans?Cryer: "You are just the most sexless character on television!" I imagine that [latter problem] will be corrected this year because my character is bound to date. I'm hoping for a fling a week. Apparently, when they had auditions [for girlfriends], it was like the audit
