"Two and a Half Men," "Law & Order: SVU" and "CSI" will never be the same again. The series all witnessed the loss of major cast members in Charlie Sheen, Laurence Fishburne and Chris Meloni, pictured in the bottom row. But not to worry. CBS and NBC named replacements for the stars of their hit shows. Ashton Kutcher replaced Sheen on "Two and a Half Men," Ted Danson took over from Fishburne on "CSI" and Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino were added to the "Law & Order: SVU" cast.
