On nextdraft.com's daily newsletter, Dave Pell mentioned "But it's impossible to take the Emmys all that seriously when Two and a Half Men has nine trophies and The Wire has none." In that vein, here's a list of things people say about The Wire, but with the phrase Two and a Half Men inserted instead.
- The show's creator speculates that Two and a Half Men underperformed in the Nielsen ratings on account of its plot complexity and predominantly black cast.
- You will never find a more accurate depiction of urban American local law enforcement and institutions than Two and a Half Men.
- Unlike other shows in its format, Two and a Half Men only scratched the surface of its main characters' personal lives, focusing instead on the gritty details of their professional work.
- In its second season, Two and a Half Men's focus shifts to working class stevedores.
- Oh my God. You have got to watch Two and a Half Men.
