(CBS) NEW YORK - Want to know what really went on at the "Two and a Half Men" set when Charlie Sheen was the star?

Sheen's former boss Chuck Lorre might just fill you in.

Lorre, who was the topic of several of Sheen's rants before the actor was fired earlier this year, hinted in a "vanity card'' at the end of Monday's show that he's writing a book about it all.

Sheen was dumped last March after the actor railed against his bosses, and they blasted him for his unpredictable behavior as a drug-abusing, reckless playboy.

Lorre killed off Sheen's character in this season's premiere and brought in a new character played by Ashton Kutcher. The premiere drew big ratings - 28 million - last week but that dropped to 20 million this week.

Sheen, meanwhile, has said nice things about Kutcher and, in a startling Emmy appearance earlier this month, wished his "Two and a Half Men" castmates well.

Lorre has been silent throughout all these developments.
