'Two And A Half Men' Ratings Hit Series Low: Is The Show In Trouble?

Posted: Updated:
"Two and a Half Men" ratings hit series lows.

Is "Two and a Half Men" in danger of being canceled? The show hit a series low in the Nielsen ratings on Mon., April 9 and has yet to receive an official go-ahead for Season 10.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Two and a Half Men" got a 3.5 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic, a low for the popular series. Its competition included "Dancing With the Stars" (2.9 rating), "House" (2.0 rating) and "The Voice" (3.9 rating).

However, many shows on other networks barely crack a 2.0 rating, making "Two a Half Men" still a powerhouse player for CBS. The last new episode of "Men" from March 2012 had a 3.8 rating and 11.5 million viewers.

"Two and a Half Men" kicked off its current season (Season 9) with a bang: A whopping 28.7 million viewers tuned in when Ashton Kutcher joined the cast in September 2011. Series stars Kutcher and Jon Cryer have been in ongoing negotiations with CBS and Warner Bros. for what many are assuming would be the 10th and final season.

During a panel honoring the series in early March 2012, Kutcher said he was unsure if his time with the show would continue. “I haven't heard from the powers that be yet,” he said. “Right now, I want to work with these guys."

The fate of "Two and a Half Men" is still up in the air, but networks have already started renewing and canceling shows. Click through the slideshow below to learn the fate of your other favorite shows.
