Charlie Sheen`s number 1 with fans despite scandals
Wellington: Charlie Sheen’s number 1 with a lot of his fans, despite a series of public disgraces, says a new poll.
Sheen’s drinking and drug problems may have caused a temporary shutdown on his ‘Two and A Half Men’ TV comedy, but some of his fans think even more highly of him now than before, according to the survey by The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor’s rabble-rousing has done nothing to harm to the standing of ‘Two and A Half Men`` as the most-watched comedy on US television with some 15 million regular viewers, reports Stuff.co.nz.
In fact, 26 percent of those questioned for the survey done by polling firm Penn Schoen Berland view Sheen "much more" or "somewhat more" favorably after his recent antics.
According to the poll of 700 Americans ages 13 to 59-years-old, 90 percent of those describing themselves as "avid fans" don’t think Sheen’s drug and alcohol problems matter as long as he does a good job on the show.
96 percent of the viewers want Sheen to return to the show, with just 4 percent wanting him to quit permanently.
56 percent think that a future episode of the show should address Sheen’s personal issues.
82 percent of women say they will still watch the star despite his personal problems compared to 76 percent of men.
Among all viewers, only 28 percent of men and 42 percent of women said broadcaster CBS and Warner Bros Television should remove Sheen.
