Two and a Half Men star urges viewers not to watch show
November 28 , 2012
An actor in hit U.S. television comedy Two and a Half Men has labeled the show as "filth" and urged viewers not to watch it.
In a video posted online by a Christian group, Angus T. Jones said he no longer wanted to take part in the sitcom.
The 19-year-old went on to explain that the show's raunchy humour conflicted with his recent bible studies.
The clip was posted by the Forerunner Christian Church in California, where Jones said he sought spiritual guidance.
"I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please. It's, you know, people say it's just entertainment,” he said in the video.
He added: "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to the television and especially with what you watch on television. It's bad news. It's bad news."
Neither Warner Bros Television, which produces the show, and CBS, which airs it, have issued a comment.

The series, which has run for nine seasons, originally starred Charlie Sheen as the womanizing uncle of Jones's character.
Sheen was fired in March last year after conflicting with the show's lead writer. He was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
Jones, who has been in the show since he was 10, reportedly makes $350,000 an episode
