The opening of the ninth season of “Two And A Half Men” on Monday night starring Jon Cryer, and Ashton Kutcher in place of Charlie Sheen saw a record number of viewers tune in to watch the Monday night debut, namely over 27 million viewers, which is a new record for the show. However, it remains to be seen whether these viewers will stay, or were just curious about how Charlie Sheen’s character was written out of the comedy series.

For the record, Charlie slipped under a train, and let’s leave it at that. Kutcher’s character of Walden Schmidt as a billionaire was introduced after he tried to commit suicide, very unsuccessfully in the sea outside the Harper residence, in the hopes of getting his ex back. From there, the script was somewhat predictable, but there are no doubt many who will be glad that the season has started up again..

Meanwhile, “Dancing With The Stars” aired for two hours on ABC, but with a reduced number of viewers over the premiere of September 2010 when over 21 viewers tuned in. Monday night it was over 18 million for the start of the series which has Chaz Bono, Solo Hope, the US women’s goalkeeper, and David Arquette, who separated from Courtney Cox in October 2010, making their moves on the dance floor. Again, time will tell whether this new group of contestants is as popular as previous ones.
