Two and a Half Men was an American comedy sitcom created by Chuck Lorre for CBS. It ran for 11 seasons.
The series revolved initially around the life of the Harper brothers: Charlie (Charlie Sheen) and Alan (Jon Cryer) and Alan's son, Jake (Angus T. Jones). Charlie is a bachelor who writes commercial jingles for a living while leading a hedonistic lifestyle. When Alan's wife Judith (Marin Hinkle) decides to divorce him, he moves into Charlie's Malibu beach house, with Jake periodically coming to stay. Charlie's housekeeper is Berta (Conchata Ferrell), a sharp-tongued woman who initially resists the change to the household but grudgingly accepts it.
Westphall connections to Two and a Half MenEdit
- The character of Elliot Carlin (Jack Riley), who appears in some ALF episodes, first appeared in The Bob Newhart Show.
- ALF spawned a live-action spin-off, the 2004 series ALF's Hit Talk Show. As it was largely set in the real world, with real guests, rather than the fictional world the Tanners inhabit, it does not count to the Westphall total. It ran for seven episodes.
- Similarly, an animated spin-off cartoon, ALF: The Animated Series, does not count because of its cartoon nature. It ran from 1987-1989 and 26 episodes were produced.
