    Charlie Sheen is officially gone, and Ashton Kutcher is officially on.

    “Two and a Half Men” premiered its ninth season Monday night without its biggest star after his much publicized meltdown led to his much publicized dismissal.

    In the much-hyped episode, Sheen’s character is killed off, mourned for a few minutes, and cremated. As his brother Alan, played by Jon Cryer, receives his ashes, Kutcher suddenly appears at a sliding glass door, causing Cryer to toss Sheen’s ashes into the air in surprise.

    Kutcher plays a billionaire named Walden Schmidt who just tried to commit suicide because of a failed relationship. He needs a new start, Alan needs someone to buy the house because he can’t afford it without Charlie…

    And the sit-com lead character hand-off is complete.

    They did it on “M*A*S*H” a few times and it worked. They did it on “Three’s Company” a couple of times, and that show kept going, too.
