Primetime Entertainment

I don't watch much TV, but tonight at the gym I watched an episode of Two and a Half Men. Someone had told me it was a funny show, and I had never seen it before, so I decided to watch. I didn't catch the beginning of the episode (titled Kissing Abraham Lincoln), but here are some choice scenes:

Man (Charlie Sheen) and some generic blond are lying in bed. The woman is obviously annoyed about something. I'm paraphrasing the conversation here:

man: Did we have a good time last night?
woman: If you count the fact that you fell asleep while reciprocating.
man: Oh, that explains why I was dreaming about kissing Abe Lincoln.


In another scene, the other man (from the title of the show) is talking with a woman who appears to be living in a house that they two of them jointly own. The man is complaining about not being able to afford the house and suggesting they sell the house.

While the man is complaining the woman is exercising. Their conversation ends with the following:

woman: Want to have sex? I'm horny and you're stressed, so I figure we both win.
man: Wha..? No. That's not going to solve anything.
woman: Ok, well, I'm going to take a shower. If you change your mind...
man: I changed my mind.


Is this funny? Maybe compared to SNL.
