"Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones says the show is "filth" and wants viewers to stop tuning in.

The 19-year-old actor bashed the CBS sitcom in a video posted Monday by Forerunner Chronicles in Seale, Ala., on YouTube.

"Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing," Jones said in the video. "He is [a] non-existent character."

He continued, "'Two and a Half Men' - if you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please."

"Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, and especially with what you watch," Jones also said in the video.

The video centers on Jones' relationship with the Forerunner Christian Church in California, where Jones says he went to meet his spiritual needs.

Show producer Warner Bros. Television has no comment. CBS hasn't responded to a request for comment left Monday.

The show, which is currently in its 10th season, stars Jon Cryer as Jones' uptight dad and originally featured Charlie Sheen as his hedonistic philandering uncle, but Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
