I may be in the minority, but I actually find the show funnier than when Sheen was on.
The problem is people's expectations. If people are expecting the show to be the same as when Sheen was on, they will be disappointed. The writers had a HUGE challenge ahead of them, and I think they've done the best they could do.
Yes, they've changed the character dynamics. They've had to. They could not possibly carry on using the same character set. Example, Jake. Jake is now 15-ish. His character has changed the most.
Other than the last few episodes of Allen's heart attack issues, he's pretty much maintained the same type of character as at the beginning of the season.
They've basically had to re-write the show from the ground up, and I think they've done a pretty good job.
