"Two and a Half Men" is coming to an end.
After 12 seasons, CBS' hit sitcom (and the longest-running comedy on TV) is coming to an end. Network president Nina Tassler made the announcement when presenting CBS' new fall schedule on Wednesday morning.
The Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer comedy's final outing will be a "season-long finale event," Tassler said, adding that creator Chuck Lorre is "psyched" to plot the show's goodbye.
"He's very psyched about this," Tassler said. "He's got some great ideas in store and some very big surprises."

The day's top national and international news.
In Season 11, "Two and a Half Men" averaged 9 million viewers and a 2.3 ratings in the adults 18-49 demo.
The long-running comedy's TV tenure has been a slighty bumpy one, thanks to the drama former star Charlie Sheen caused before he was famously fired after a public feud with Lorre and replaced by Kutcher, as well as Angus T. Jones' controversial comments, including calling the show "filth."
But will Sheen, who now stars on FX's "Anger Management," return for the final season?
"I would like to see whatever Chuck would like to," Tassler hedged. "Chuck knows his show better than me...he has a lot of surprises in store, I don't know if that's one of them."
Of course, Sheen's return may be a bit hard to do considering his character Charlie was killed off the series after Sheen's exit.
Aside from "Two and a Half Men," Lorre has three other series on CBS' line-up: "The Big Bang Theory," "Mom" and "Mike & Molly."
"Two and a Half Men" isn't the only series ending its run this upcoming season: NBC will bid farewell to "Parks and Recreation" and "Parenthood," while Fox sends off "Glee" and HBO says goodbye to "True Blood," "Boardwalk Empire" and "The Newsroom."
