There was a lot to cover today for Sheen as he was roasted, eulogized and this weekend, presented an Emmy, so let’s get to it.

First off, of course, was his Celebrity Roast on Comedy Central that we’ve been talking about for weeks, airing opposite the first episode of Two and Half Men and I have to say, they turned the show into quite an internet affair. Besides broadcasting on the cable channel, their website had a ton of things going on, such as a camera fixed right on Charlie to get all of his reactions, a twitter feed that was being updated live, clips from the show (which had already been pre-recorded), and more. The show is still going on, so we’ll have more about it in our next article. But I think the funniest thing is the reaction. Charlie looks more excited and calmer than he’s ever been. Twitter people can check out #SHEENROAST to see what people are saying.

And on Two and Half Men, Charlie Harper was eulogized after he was hit by a train in France after his girlfriend pushed him, creating a meat explosion of Charlie all over the platform. Kind of a fitting tribute to a man who’s life spiraled out of control like a runaway train. On hand to say goodbye was John Stamos, originally thought to replace Sheen, Thomas Gibson and Jenna Elfman (as Dharma and Greg). But there was very little sadness or care that their friend of all this time, a brother, a son had passed on. Instead there were a slew of jokes about his life on the show, mirroring a bit his life at home. Lorre was determined to not dwell in the depression, but in doing so, seemed a bit ingenious. The only truly emotional moment came from Cryer, but was quickly extinguished with a punchline. I’m always one to think that comedies should remain comedies and not turn into drama, but I think if he was going to kill of Charlie, he could have done so with a little more dignity and less venom.

And in a better late than never moment, Charlie Sheen apologized for his behavior when he appeared on the Emmy Awards Sunday, which found him presenting an award oddly enough to a Chuck Lorre alumni Jim Parsons, the guy who plays Leonard on Big Bang Theory, who commented that it was sort of awkward and he seemed a bit uncomfortable. But Sheen congratulated him and was said to be quite nice to Parsons.

And finally, Charlie Sheen may be one step closer to getting his settlement from Lorre and Warner Brothers, but the studio is denying that any deal has been reached. An inside source, who has opted to stay anonymous, has said that the actor could get $25 million to settle the case, which would cover his participation in the profits of the show, as was in his contract. While it’s a far cry from the $100 million he asked for, if true, the sum could help him in the short term until his new projects start producing some cash.

That’s the Charlie news at the hour. Thanks for reading.
