Chuck Lorre Productions vanity cards

Chuck Lorre, the producer of the hit sitcoms “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike & Molly,” and “The Big Bang Theory,” uses a second of airtime at the end of all his shows to post a vanity card for his production company.

This week, Chuck used his moment at the end of “Two and a Half Men” to poke a little fun at the troubled star of that show, Charlie Sheen…
