CBS Promotes Kutcher as Sheen's Replacement With a Naked Billboard

By Published on .

It may be called "Two and a Half Men," but CBS is promoting the sitcom's new star, Ashton Kutcher, with an image of three naked men on a giant billboard in California.

The TV network today unveiled the outdoor ad, a full two months ahead of the first episode that will star Mr. Kutcher. TMZ captured a snapshot of the billboard, which hangs on the outside Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, Calif.

The new sign shows Mr. Kutcher standing naked with co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones with a sign that says "9-19-11 All Will Be Revealed." Based on the nasty face that Mr. Cryer is making at Mr. Kutcher's crotch, it would seem he's not #winning in the endowment department. (Sorry Demi.)

After a crazed Charlie Sheen was fired in May, CBS hung a generic "Two and a Half Men" sign up. It later settled on Mr. Kutcher -- former star of "That 70's Show" and foe of the Village Voice -- as Mr. Sheen's replacement.

Mr. Sheen is aiming to have the last laugh, though. He plans to air a Comedy Central roast that will go head to head with Mr. Kutcher's "Two and a Half Men" debut on Sept. 19.
