Nick At Nite To Start To Air 'Two And A Half Men' From December 2017 *Updated With Debut Date & TX Times*

Nick at Nite, Nickelodeon USA's nighttime programming block featuring viewer-favorite comedies, have announced the exciting news in a trailer that Nick@Nite will start to air CBS's Emmy and People's Choice award-winning comedy series Two and a Half Men from December 2017!

Update (11/24): Nick@Nite will start to air Two and a Half Men nightly at 1:00am and 1:32am ET/PT from Thursday 7th December 2017!

Two and a Half Men is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, mothers, single parenthood, sibling relations, surrogate families, money and, most importantly, love. More specifically, it's about the lives of two brothers, one brother's son, and the many women who surround them.

Hedonistic commercial jingle writer Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Mercedes in the garage and an easy way with women. His casual Malibu lifestyle is rudely interrupted when his tightly wound brother, Alan (Jon Cryer), and Alan's son, Jake (Angus T. Jones), came to stay with him. Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan's narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor); Alan's deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith (Marin Hinkle), Charlie's domineering, a sharp-tongued, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta (Conchata Ferrell); and Rose (Melanie Lynskey), who stalks Charlie following a one-night stand. Despite the complexities of their lives and their own strained relationship, Charlie and Alan have one thing in common - they both love Jake and want what's best for him. As a result, they manage to create a little family unit that promises to make each of them a better man.

Following the death of Charlie Harper between season 8 and season 9, the beach house is sold to Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), an Internet billionaire going through a divorce from Bridget (Judy Greer). Alan leaves to live with his mother Evelyn (Holland Taylor) when the house is sold, but Walden invites both Alan and Jake back to live in the beach house, and continues to employ Berta as the homes housekeeper. He needs friends and the three form a tightknit surrogate family.

Season 11 introduced fans to Jenny (Amber Tamblyn), Charlie's long-lost illegitimate daughter who shares many personality traits with her father, including indulging in alcohol and women.

In the 12th and final season, Walden decides to reprioritize his life after a health scare by deciding to adopt a baby. He realizes that the only way to do this is to be married, but does not know anyone who will do it, so he asks Alan to marry him and pretend that they are a gay couple, thus ensuring success at adopting. They eventually adopt an African American child, Louis (Edan Alexander), and subsequently divorce to pursue relationships with women.

Two and a Half Men is created by Lee Aronsohn and Chuck Lorre, and produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, The Tannenbaum Company and Warner Bros. Television. The series originally ran for 262 episodes over 12 seasons between September 22, 2003 – February 19, 2015.
