Warner Bros. Television says it has fired Charlie Sheen from the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men."
The studio that produces the CBS series said the decision was made after "careful consideration."
Sheen's erratic personal life had prompted Warner to suspend production on the show for the season, and Sheen in return had been waging an angry media campaign against the show's producers.
No decision has been made on the future of the series, Warner Bros. said in a statement.
