The actor was back to work at the comedy show on Monday (04Jan10), and shot his first episode on Friday (08Jan10) - just days after he was arrested and jailed following a Christmas Day (25Dec09) fight with his wife Brooke Mueller.

Writer Chuck Lorre confirms there have been no changes to the production schedule as a result of the scandal, insisting Sheen is taking the ordeal in his stride.

Lorre tells Eonline.com, "He is doing as well as he can under the circumstances. Charlie is a consummate professional and I must tell you, it was really gratifying (at Friday's shoot). He was 1000 per cent there for us from the first moment when we started shooting and it was a great night for us. One of our strongest episodes. And Charlie was just terrific."

Sheen was taken into custody by cops in Aspen, Colorado after a fight with Mueller turned nasty.

The actor, who threatened Mueller with a knife during the heated argument, is facing charges of second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief.
