Keeping up with Carl Reiner isn’t easy– at 90, he’s a busy guy on Twitter. The creator of “The Dick van Dyke Show” (which launched a generation of pop culture on TV thanks to “Mary Tyler Moore” and its offspring) has some announcements and pronouncements. He’s just booked an episode of “Two and a Half Men,” which means we’ll see this comedy genius on the same screen as Ashton Kutcher. (Oh, how I wish Morey Amsterdam could be there with Reiner!)
Was invited to guest on “Two and a Half Men” next week,.Of course I was happy to accept & will keep you posted even if I stink or get fired.

Also, Reiner recently reported a short hospital stay: “No tweets for 1 wk due to food poison .Threw up 20 times- spent 5 days in hospital, Home now. Suggest U turn down tainted food if offered.” And he loved “The Butler”:
Tonight I saw a great, great ‘do-not -miss- film, “The Butler” Take loved ones to see it and they will love you for doing so.
