Surprise, surprise. The ink has barely tried on Ashton Kutcher's brand-new, last-minute contract to join "Two And a Half Men," and Charlie Sheen already has something to say about it.

"Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer ... Oh wait, so am I!" the whacked-out warlock tells TMZ, making a backhanded dig at the 33-year-old actor.
"Enjoy the show, America," he continues, aiming fire at the popular CBS sitcom. "Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB."

Let's translate that in TV industry-speak: a 2.0 Nielsen rating in the advertiser-friendly 18-to-49 demographic would not exactly be a good thing for the network and Warner Bros. Television, which produces "Men." Sheen is suggesting that regular viewers in that age group would tune out.

But Charlie being Charlie, the logic doesn't make sense: if anything, Kutcher's youth-centric appeal (and 6.6 million Twitter followers) could continue the long-running show's ratings success, maybe even grow the audience. And don't forget the fans who will stick around to watch Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. There are other people in the cast too, ya know? Poor guys.

"Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton," snipes Sheen. "There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."
