Charlie Sheen rounded off a day of bizarre interviews with a surprise hour-long live appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight. Sheen appeared a little more subdued than he had earlier in the day, telling host Piers Morgan that he wasn't "bringing the crazy," and backtracking on remarks made elsewhere, including his demand for a pay rise. He told Morgan he wasn't under the influence, pulling out a clean drug test to prove it. Sheen said he didn't "take" cocaine—"I had to pay for it."

Sheen—while maintaining that he was on "a quest to claim absolute victory"—said he plans to go back and finish the season of Two and a Half Men and he can "sort of understand why" CBS felt the need to intervene after some high-profile incident. Morgan touched on the domestic abuse issue but for the most part went pretty easy on Sheen, offering compliments including "TV needs you" and "You're kind of the Che Guevara of Hollywood at the moment."
