PUBLIC DIVIDED OVER "TWO AND A HALF MEN," CHARLIE SHEEN'S FUTURE
The public seems to be split over the fate of "Two and a Half Men." In a series of AccessHollywood.com polls, 58-percent say they believe CBS was, quote, "right to pull the plug" on production of the show following star Charlie Sheen's latest radio outburst. But 56-percent don't think this should mark the end of the series. The vote is split 50-50 over whether "Two and a Half Men" could survive without Charlie, with half of the respondents saying, quote, "Charlie is the show" and half believing the sitcom could still be good with a new leading man." Regarding who should get the job if CBS chooses to go that route, John Stamos and Rob Lowe are the frontrunners, with both earning more than 30-percent of the vote. Sixteen-percent think David Spade would be a good replacement for Sheen, and 12-percent would put Denis Leary on the show. Seven-percent would like to see the part go to David Duchovny.
FAVORITE ITALIAN FOODS
When it comes to Italian food, you just can't beat lasagna. The layered pasta dish is taking first place in a new FoodNetwork.com poll, earning 37-percent of the vote. Pizza is the runner up on the list, with 28-percent saying it's their favorite offering in Italian cuisine, and 15-percent lick their lips at the thought of eggplant parmesan. But only six-percent are big fans of risotto, and just five percent say their favorite Italian dish is chicken cacciatore. Nine-percent lean toward the Italian sweets, and name tiramisu as the Italian dish they like best.
