The 12th and final season of "Two and a Half Men" premieres in October. Although, the "half man" thing doesn't really apply anymore, because Angus T. Jones is gone. But maybe they'll be picking up a new half. Yesterday, the chairman of CBS told reporters that Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer might get gay married this season, so they can adopt a kid. In the premiere, Ashton's character, Walden, has a health scare that makes him realize he wants kids. And when he can't adopt one on his own, he proposes to Alan so they can adopt a kid as a fake gay couple. We don't know if Alan says yes though.

Tim McGraw swatted a woman in the head who ripped his jeans while he was performing Sunday in Atlanta. One report even said that she smacked at his junk. Tim was performing "Truck Yeah" and interacting with fans when a woman suddenly swatted the area close to his junk. She may have landed one because he seems to start yelling at her, although you can't hear what he says. He quickly turns away but then she grabs at the preexisting hole in his jeans and rips them even more. That's when he reacts. He knocks her hand back and then smacks the top of her head. You can see her hair fly in the video.
