Charlie Sheen Returns To TV This Summer

Charlie SheenThe man who once claimed to possess "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA" finally has his chance to prove to both his detractors and his former bosses at CBS that they made a mistake when they let him go. Entertainment Weekly reports that FX has scheduled Sheen's new comedy "Anger Management" in the Thursday nights at 9:30 slot beginning June 28th.  The show is set to be part of a new Thursday night comedy block by the network.

The layout will be as follows: new episodes of Anger Management will air at both 9 and 9:30 on the 28th, with one new episode each following week at 9:30 preceded by the previous episode airing at 9. FX has currently ordered 10 episodes, but have a special deal in place with Sheen that would see an additional 90 episodes picked-up by the network if the initial batch reaches certain ratings thresholds. This is similar to the arrangements TBS has in place with Tyler Perry.

The remainder of the programming block will be filled out by new episodes of Wilfred at 10pm and the third season of Louie at 10:30. 11pm is reserved for Russell Brand's new late-night program entitled Strangely Uplifting. Details on the latter show are still hard to come by.

Anger Management is of course (loosely) based on the 2003 Adam Sandler film of the same name. It's not one of Sandler's more well remembered works, but time will tell if Sheen can take the concept (which admittedly does have some potential) and improve upon it's first rendition. It's put up or shut up time for Charlie. If this new venture fails, it validates the concerns of Chuck Lorre and CBS. If it succeeds, Charlie will indeed be "WINNING" once again.

Finally Charlie is back.

I really miss him in 2½ men, the show ain't the same without him.

I really loved Charlie on Two and a Half Men, but honestly the show was over creative-wise several seasons before he was booted, and the only people I know who watch it are people my grandparents age who keep CBS on for background noise continually. Having said that, I'm looking forward to Charlie's new show and will watch it. I wish him luck on it though if it airs in the fall at tome point, the 9-10 time-slot is a tough one. It would be up against big rated shows on CBS and the ABC line up that also does pretty well that night. I wish Charlie Sheen luck and hope the show does well. Can't wait to see it!
