McCarthy lashes out Charlie Sheen paranoia is spreading. Several women who have slept with him have voiced concern that he didn't disclose he had the HIV virus. Now his Two and a Half Men costar Jenny McCarthy says Sheen is guilty of negligence for not telling her he had the virus when they pretended to be lovers on the sitcom.

* NOVA: VACCINES - CALLING THE SHOTS. 10 tonight, WHYY12. "NOVA" isn't usually a destination for the science-phobic or medically wary.

In this case, the adorable baby is 7-week-old Osman Chandab, who's shown, not so adorably, struggling for every breath in a Melbourne, Australia, hospital as his distraught mother looks on. Osman, we're told, was due for his pertussis (whooping cough)

Despite critical bile, Sunday's U.S. debut of Season 4 of ITV/PBS world-smasher Downton Abbey was a winner for PBS. (Who needs you , Matthew Crawley???) It snagged 10.2 million viewers, the highest-rated drama premiere in PBS history - 22 percent more than Season 3's kickoff (7.3 mils).

How many people get to watch their own funeral? Twice. In the same night. That was Charlie Sheen's welcome to the workweek. Of course at this point, "workweek" probably has a different connotation for Charlie than it does for the rest of us. As Seth MacFarlane, the master of ceremonies on Comedy Central's Roast of Charlie Sheen said to the man of the hour Monday night, "He went from Ferris Bueller's Day Off to having every day off....
