KTLA is jumping on the anti-Ashton Kutcher bandwagon by taking out billboards promoting reruns of "Two and a Half Men" that star Charlie Sheen, proclaiming the somewhat unstable actor "the original."

TMZ reports that the signs have sprung up around L.A., with Sheen's smirking mug just daring Kutcher to try to get the ratings he got.

Burn.

The gossip site also says that they heard from "a mole" at the station that the new campaign a deliberate dig at Kutcher, and is attempting to capitalize on the well-known fact that fans liked Sheen better.
