Charlie Sheen says he wants a raise to come back to the canceled CBS show “Two and a Half Men.’’ On morning show interviews yesterday, he continued his attack on CBS and producers for shutting down the hit show because of his off-set behavior. On ABC’s “Good Morning America’’ and NBC’s “Today,’’ Sheen boasted of his “epic’’ partying, said he’s fueled by “violent hatred’’ of his bosses, said he cleaned up from drugs at home, and is “tired of pretending I’m not a total, bitchin’ rock star from Mars.’’ He told ABC’s Andrea Canning he plans to sue his bosses. He said CBS owes him an apology, “publicly, while licking my feet.’’ Sheen, who was hospitalized three times in three months, said he’s bored now with cocaine. “I am on a drug,’’ he said. “It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off, and your children will weep over your exploded body.’’
