You know, it`s -- he was doing so well and I was really proud of him.And it was nice that he was sort of moving beyond, which psychologically is a good thing. But, you know, he is wrong. The show has 2 million more viewers on average than when he was on the show.BEHAR: Is that so?BRAGMAN: Yes. Absolutely. It`s up to 15, it was closer to 13.BEHAR: So, is it bitter - and just sour grapes? Why?BRAGMAN: Probably.BEHAR: Do you think so?BRAGMAN: Well, I mean I think it`s hard for Ashton Kutcher or anyone who is on "Two & A Half Men," because that`s like working at the hotel at "The Shining."
