The always-tasteful Two and a Half Men (7:30 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) brings back Tammy (Jamie Pressley), Jake's (Angust T. Jones) much-older girlfriend, for this week's episode.
Jake is clearly related to his late Uncle Charlie, because he cheats on Tammy with her 18-year-old daughter, Ashley (Emily Osment). Which doesn't make Ashley's ex-boyfriend, Jerry (Scott Bakula) very happy.
For those of you wondering, Pressley is 35; Jones is 19; Osment is 20; and Bakula is 57.
For those of you wondering why "Two and a Half Men" is still on - why it's a lock to return next season - the answer is simple. The ratings are good. They're actually better this season than they were last season.
Of course, airing after "The Big Bang Theory" doesn't hurt, but the other sitcoms CBS put in this time slot didn't do nearly as well.
