Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer will be back as regulars. But Angus T. Jones, who nearly derailed his lucrative (a reported $300,000 per episode) “Men” career last November when he recorded a testimonial for a church urging us to stop watching the show and filling our heads ”with filth,” is not going to be a regular character on the show next season. He’ll be recurring — industry-speak for “some episodes but not all.” The actor is attending college, in real life.

 This TV season, “Men” has played an important role in CBS’s effort to own comedy on Thursday nights, paired with “The Big Bang Theory.” Both are Chuck Lorre comedies.

“Men” joins the slew of series CBS had already picked up early for next season. They include comedies “2 Broke Girls,”  “Mike & Molly,” “How I Met Your Mother” and, of course, “The Big Bang Theory.”

Drama-wise, CBS has already greenlit next season on “The Good Wife,” “Blue Bloods,” Person of Interest,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Elementary,” “Hawaii Five-O,” and “The Mentalists.”

The network’s newsmags “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” are coming back, as are reality series “The Amazing Race,” “Survivor,” and “Undercover Boss.”
