New deals for Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones bring "Two and a Half Men" back for 2012-13 season.
CBS has renewed "Two and a Half Men" for a tenth season after reaching new deals with stars Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones and Ashton Kutcher.
The revamped "Two and a Half Men" has performed solidly for the network since Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen, who was fired last year following months of erratic behavior and public mockery of Chuck Lorre, the show's co-creator.
This season, it has averaged a 5.2 rating/13 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, a 27 percent improvement over the previous season, and 15 million total viewers.
The ninth season premiere of "Two and a Half Men" in September featuring Kutcher's initial appearance drew a jaw-dropping 27.7 million total viewers, and a 10.3/24 in the demo.
The network had earlier renewed 18 of its other series, including "How I Met Your Mother," "2 Broke Girls," "Mike & Molly" and "The Big Bang Theory."
