CRYER IS NOW TOP DOG
The changing of the guard is complete.
Jon Cryer truly was shocked to win an Emmy Sunday in his first outing as a nominee for lead actor in a comedy series.
That category used to belong to Cryer’s former “Two and a Half Men” co-star Charlie Sheen. But with Sheen famously dumped from the CBS program, Cryer was elevated to top dog status.
“I will be impossible to live with,” he quipped backstage after collecting his award. “I will be brandishing this regularly.”
Cryer said he figured Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” would repeat as the winner.
“Clearly `Big Bang’ is just at the top of its game right now and unfortunately he’s not gotten any worse,” Cryer said. “I just did not think this was going to happen, so I apologize for my speech.”

It’s a happy fact of life for male viewers that “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks and “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara are, well, curvy.
And their curves were on ample display at Sunday’s night Emmy telecast.
But the night’s big surprise: Kat Dennings in a gown that exposed much of what had only been hinted at in her “2 Broke Girls” waitress uniform.
