Charlie Sheen May Be Winning After All

What does a guy have to do to get fired these days?

After publicly lambasting his Warner Brothers bosses as 'trolls' and 'idiots' all while spouting about warlocks and tiger blood to anyone who would listen, Charlie Sheen's career with the marquee CBS show 'Two and a Half Men' seems dead in the water. But with Sheen's recent antics creating an undeniably bankable interest from a train-wreck-hungry fan-base, rumors are swirling that Sheen could return to television sooner than expected. #WINNING indeed.

While speculations about Sheen's possible return to 'Men' appear to be false due to Warner Brother's ardent anti-Charlie stance, the sudden cult antihero appears to be making inroads at other networks. TMZ reported Sunday that Sheen met with Fox executives Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment for FOX, David Hill, President of FOX Sports, and Peter Rice, Chariman of Entertainment for FOX Networks Group to discuss a possible late-night show with the network. Nothing definite came out of the meeting but TMZ sources report everyone liked Charlie.

Sheen fueled rumors Monday by crashing the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live, throwing t-shirts into the audience and planting a big, wet kiss on the late night host's lips. Kimmel, shocked, went on to ask Sheen if he wanted to use the Kimmel band for his new late night show. Sheen responded by giving Kimmel a gift: a coffee mug with a fox on it.

When asked what it meant, Sheen smiled coyly, saying "I'll let you figure it out."
