Replacing the lead actor on a successful show can be tricky, but so far CBS has done pretty well in replacing Charlie Sheen with Ashton Kutcher on 'Two and a Half Men'. Despite being way down from the 28 million people who watched Kutchers debut, the rating for Mondays episode still pulled in almost 14.8 million viewers. An average episode last season with Sheen averaged around 12.7 million. When Sheen heard this, he ran the blade of a knife across the palm of his hand, clinched a fist as blood dripped onto a picture of Kutcher and vowed revenge.
