"Two and a Half Men" has suffered a ratings slump ever since Charlie Sheen left in 2011, and now it seems the CBS comedy won't have a chance to recover after executives announced this week that the show's next season will be its last.

The network announced Wednesday that "Two and a Half Men" will end its 12-year run with the season that premieres in the fall. The show is left with just one of the original main cast members, Jon Cryer.

Nevertheless, showrunners promised to do the last and final season of the sitcom justice.

"Chuck Lorre is creating a season-long event," CBS' Nina Tassler told The Hollywood Reporter this week. "We did very well last year with announcing final season of 'How I Met Your Mother' here, too. Chuck is very psyched about this; he's got some great ideas and very big surprises."

Ratings tumbled from an average of 14.5 million viewers with Sheen in season nine to an all-time "Two and a Half Men" low of 9.1 million this season, according to Business Insider. Not even the addition of popular actor Ashton Kutcher could help resurrect the series' ratings.

"The show awkwardly killed off Sheen's character at the start of ninth season," Business Insider reported. "The episode may have been a rating's high for the network (more than 28 million viewers tuned in to watch); however, Sheen's absence wasn't received well by long-time viewers."

Viewers on social media particularly took notice and sounded off on Twitter this week when CBS announced that the sitcom was ending.
