CBS announced Monday it plans to stand by “Two-and-a-Half Men” star Charlie Sheen in rehab. The network pays him a million and a quarter per episode through 22 episodes next season.
And by “episodes,” the network means anything involving a police call.  
NBC’s “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan told Charles Barkley before TNT’s Knicks telecast Thursday that he sexually fantasizes about Sarah Palin.
They both do.
