Angus T. Jones, the kid who plays the "half" on "Two and a Half Men" caused a stir when he asked viewers of the show to "please stop watching it and filling your head with filth."

It was expected that he would get fired or quit after those comments, but instead it looks like he'll finish out the season, according to TMZ. In fact, it the gossip site reports that he was going to leave at the end of last season, but that he was pressured to stay because of how high his paycheck was (it was $1.5 million a year).

Jones apparently felt terrible about the ruckus that he caused with his comments.
