CBS welcoming back actor Angus T. Jones

PASADENA, Calif.

The teenage actor Angus T. Jones is expected back at “Two and a Half Men” next week, with CBS accepting his apology for calling the popular comedy “filth” and “very inappropriate.”

“We move on,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said Saturday. After a break for the holidays, actors on “Two and a Half Men” are about to begin rehearsals for new episodes.

Jones, 19, who reportedly makes $350,000 an episode, later said he was sorry if his remarks in an interview with a religious organization showed an indifference to his colleagues or a lack of appreciation for his opportunity. He didn’t publicly change his evaluation of the comedy, which is heavy on sexual jokes and innuendo.
