Kutcher's Two And A Half Men wish
Ashton Kutcher has said he is interested in continuing with Two And A Half Men beyond the current series - and CBS wants him too.
Television's most popular comedy has exceeded expectations this season, with a 20% increase in viewers from the final one with Charlie Sheen.
Ashton said he will be working on films after the TV season is complete but is considering that a hiatus. He said he would be interested in returning if it could be worked out.
CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler said CBS is motivated to make a deal to bring the show back.
Ashton appeared at a news conference today clean-shaven and with a short haircut. He said it was done for an episode of the show which will be broadcast on Monday.
