Will 'Two and a Half Men' Change Show Name?

Two and a Half Men's Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) might be dead, but his drunken, womanizing spirit lives on in the form of his long-lost daughter Jenny, played by Sisterhood Of the Traveling Pants star Amber Tamblyn.
ET visited the set of Two and a Half Men to see what the new season had in store for Alan Harper (Jon Cryer) and Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), but the conversation quickly veered to talking about their new co-star.
"What's amazing is her character comes in and introduces an entirely new dynamic for us," said Kutcher. "Especially for my character, because now I have two strangers living under my roof."
Tamblyn, 30, also seemed just as excited to add that little spice of life to the long-running show. "It is so much fun. I've been having a blast. The first week was super scary and intimidating, but Jon and Ashton have just made me feel right at home," she quipped.
Adding of her initial nerves, "It is like doing a play, where the writers of that play will come up and change some of the play in front of the audience," the actress admitted. "And then you have to just be as good as before, or better. So, that's a new thing for me. That's the most stressful part."
That being said, Tamblyn has now come into her own on the show. "It's a real treat coming into an environment where everyone knows exactly what they're doing, and you just sort of find your own groove amongst everybody else."
Now that there's a female lead on the show, and Angus T. Jones "half man" character has been downsized, will they change the name of the hit CBS series?
Tamblyn answered jokingly, "The Amber Tamblyn Is Perfect show!"
Two and a Half Men airs Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on CBS.
