Charlie Sheen is returning to prime time this week.  But it won't be on Two and a Half men - ABC's 20/20 will air a special 1 hour interview with Sheen that was taped this past weekend.

Charlie wants to tell his side of the story and give viewers a look into his personal life, following his most recent meltdown which resulted in the shut down of production on his hit show.

The show will air Tuesday night at 10 on ABC but you can check out parts of the interview here.

And it that's not enough, Charlie is writing a tell-all book about his life on the set of  Two and a Half Men.  He wants at least 10 million to spill the beans.  He's already got the title in mind: When the Laughter Stopped
