“Two and a Half Men’s” 100th and seven days of vacation

TwomenThis time next week Warner Bros. Television and CBS will be celebrating the taping of the 100th episode of “Two and a Half Men.”

Good grief, can it really have been four seasons-plus since the show debuted? (Just for fun here’s Brian Lowry’s dead-on first Variety review of the show from September 2003) Warners is inviting some industry folks to the taping at the studio, followed by a champagne and cake soiree. It ain’t a 100th episode party if you don’t have a big-cake cutting photo to show for it. So congrats to Chuck Lorre, Lee Aronson, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell and the rest of the folks behind the show that is not only TV’s top-rated comedy but also Emmy-nommed this year. (Here’s a highlights reel from last season). In these lean times for sitcoms (especially good ol’ fashioned multi-camera sitcoms) the 100th seg is a real milestone (and as always a happy sign of the syndie coin that’s soon to flow).

I’m sorry that I won’t be able to make the “Men” taping, but not too sorry. I’m going to be out of town — out of BlackBerry radar, even — next week on vacation. During my absence, On the Air will be in the good hands of Variety’s Stuart Levine, who did yeoman’s work in this space in July during the long march of the Television Critics Assn. tour.

Take it away, Stu…!
