The second Two and a Half Men season 10 premier set the background for the new Two and a Half Men.  To introduce the replacement to Alan Harper's now dead brother and keep Alan Harper in the show, the replacement turns out to be a very sexy yet boyish character who amazingly is also a billionaire.  Now, why would a billionaire want to buy a home on the beach?  Actually, he isn't looking to buy property on the beach but by some act of the gods is led to the beach home on Malibu that is currently being occupied by Alan Harper, an often broke chiropractor named Alan Harper who is feeling depressed because of the death of his brother who used to own the home that Alan lives in with his dopey often belligerent son Jake who exhibits all of the manifestations of a product of divorce.  The billionaire, Walden Schmidt, is trying to kill himself because his wife threw him out of his home.  He chooses to commit suicide by drowning himself in the ocean.  Seems that the billionaire is an inept in drowning himself in the ocean as he is in handling people who are important to him.  He finds that he is still living since the ocean belches him out and surprisingly tosses him into the Malibu beach home occupied by the chiropractor.  The comedy of the situation is almost Shakespearean or an attempt at a Comedy of Errors.  The lovesick billionaire comes face to face with someone who is even worse at handling people and relationships than him, the chiropractor, of course.  The chiropractor or the character Alan Harper is well known to fans of Two and a Half Men.  Part of the endearing qualities of this helpless loser is his intent on talking and trying to analyze other people's problems and help them by talking.  He does that for the billionaire who is receptive to his counseling.  After finding out that the chiropractor will have to find another place to live since the home he is living in is up for sale, the billionaire offers to buy the home and to let the chiropractor and his son live there with him.  That is the premise of the new Two and a Half Men.  A lovesick billionaire is saved from committing suicide by drowning himself when his drowning attempt fails and he goes for help to the home that is the setting of Two and a Half Men.  The comedy is natural even with a switch in characters.  The reason could be the background pathos that has a general appeal to most people who identify with the characters personality while being shocked at the fact that one of those pathetic personalities is really a billionaire.  Surprisingly that is the source of the comedy.  Getting laughs from men who are tossed out by women who obviously have some source of power that is stronger than professional certificates and even stronger than a billionaires money might be seen as tacky by some viewers.  But, the fact that one of these sad cases is a billionaire appeals to the funny bone in most viewers who think that a billionaire is ripe fruit for plucking and for finding totally amusing in his ineptness at dealing with the lower aspects of being human, sex, sex, and people who can turn their meal ticket out into the ocean once they have the money and don't like the sex.  And, that continues the motivation of the sit com Two and a Half Men, sex.  The three dysfunctional men, Walden Schmidt, Jake and Alan Harper will continue to live in the Malibu beach house.  The character of Alan Harper is a type of father figure typical of father's of dysfunctional men.  The other characters of the show are Berta, the housekeeper who is asked to stay as housekeeper.  In addition, Evelyn, Alan Harper's mother, a sex crazed woman gets to show up occasionally to play the Irish faye or savvy to sex woman who sees in men including her sons only as objects of sex or of a sounding board to impress with her worldly manner.
