Miley Cyrus Boosts 'Two and a Half Men' Ratings With Full-Bodied Performance

Singer/actress/pixie blonde/bride-to-be Miley Cyrus made her Two and a Half Men debut last night. The "Party in the U.S.A." singer portrayed the motor-mouthed Missi, a young lady who—unlike nearly every woman on the show—did not go to bed with Ashton Kutcher's character.

Nevertheless, Cyrus didn't hold anything back from the raunchy sitcom (as you can probably tell from the photo above). She offered the venerable CBS series a full-bodied, robust performance that's sure to set the curve for future Two and a Half Men guest stars.

Cyrus tweeted multiple times about her first TV role since Hannah Montana last night, and CBS must be sharing in her excitement today. Not only did her presence spike the ratings up 14% from the week before, but she's rumored to return to the role in future episodes. Ka-ching!

You can watch Miley on 2.5 Dudes over here to see her delivering such lines as, "I got stung by a jellyfish once, my friend had to pee on my leg" and, "This is a nice bed—I bet you could do some serious drilling on a workbench like this." Peeing! Sex! Where do they come up with this stuff?
