Anger Management, as expected, led the night on the network, pulling 5.47 million in total viewers during last night’s season premiere at 9 p.m. ET. FX has been great with advertising for the series and Sheen’s fame also likely led viewers to the network for the first record.The next challenge will be maintaining viewers in the coming weeks.
Thursday night will be an evening a comedy for FX, as the network is set to bring Wilfred and Louie back for a second and third season respectively, in addition to premiering Anger Management and Brand X with Russell Brand. Besides the fact that they're all comedies, the common denominator among these shows is the star power, with each series featuring at least one well known name to draw in viewers
Earlier today, we shared a teaser for FX's upcoming new comedy Brand X starring Russell Brand. This afternoon, we have a new teaser for the other new comedy coming to FX later this month. Charlie Sheen is once again up to no good, this time terrorizing a priest!
FX continues to celebrate Charlie Sheen's rather spotty professional history in recent years as the premiere of their upcoming Anger Management approaches. The latest teaser for the comedy series refers to Sheen as a force of nature. And he seems perfectly happy with the title.
We're inching close to the premiere of FX's comedy series Anger Management, with about two months to go before Charlie Sheen returns to television in a starring role. So far, FX has done its fair share to tease us on the show, while not really showing us any actual footage from the comedy. This video is more of the same in that respect, but does give us a look at the set, and a glimpse at Selma Blair.
FX has been busy putting together what might be the most promising and hilarious Thursday night line-up to be found on any network. The new comedy block not only includes the return of Louie and Wilfred as well as the debut of Russel Brand's Strangely Uplifting but also Charlie Sheen's highly anticipated new series Anger Management. Here's the second teaser.
The first teaser for Anger Management was released earlier today and FX certainly didn't shy away from Charlie Sheen's Two and a Half Men goodbye. Charlie may have died on the CBS sitcom but he's been fully resurrected by FX for a loose adaptation of the film starring Jack Nicholson. Sheen is stepping into the unconventional therapist role and it seems that one of his first, of what is sure to be many, celebrity guest patients will be his very own ex-wife Denise Richards.
FX doesn’t typically shy away from dark. In fact, the network’s sort made a name for itself with its darker tone, so it should come as no surprise that they’d promote the upcoming comedy Anger Management with a bit of dark humor, which in this case, comes in the form of Charlie Sheen in a casket.
Sheen is set to star in FX's Anger Management, based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. He'll be playing the role of Charlie Goodson, a therapist with unorthodox methods and issues of his own. One of those issues is his relationship with his father, to be played, with a touch of real-life veracity, by Sheen's actual father, Martin Sheen.
The countdown to the June 28 premier of Charlie Sheen’s new show Anger Management is on, and he’s busy making the rounds and playing nice for the interviews. Today Sheen showed up on Today where a couple of stills from the new show were shown and he talked about his “cringeable” past behavior. Has he really turned over a new leaf, or is this just PR?
We recently learned that FX’s upcoming comedy Anger Management was set for a June premiere date. Today’s news on the subject of the comedy that will put Charlie Sheen back in a starring role on television is that Brett Butler is set to play a recurring role on the series.
Whether you're a fan of Charlie Sheen's or not, his upcoming Anger Management series is one of the most buzzed-about shows on the horizon, simply because everybody wants to see if he can recover from his ignominious departure from Two and a Half Men or not. Will Sheen flourish on a new show and new network, or will the same problems that lead to his departure from the hit CBS show resurface to bedevil him again? Hell, will the show actually be funny?
It’s no real surprise, since her name has been at the top of the list for some time, but the word came down officially today: Selma Blair will star opposite Charlie Sheen in the new comedy Anger Management. The series, which will air on FX, will be Sheen’s return to the small screen after what can only be described as a meltdown of monumental proportions.
While word continues to trickle in pilot orders among the networks, Anger Management has already received a 10-episode order from FX, which leaves casting as the next major concern. Who will star alongside Charlie Sheen in the comedy series? News that one of the two female leads has been cast was announced today.
Despite the fact that Charlie Sheen’s tiger blood spewing is seemingly over and the troubled star has receded back out of the limelight, Lionsgate TV is still moving ahead with his Anger Management television adaptation. In a smart move, the series will immediately differentiate and distance itself from Two and a Half Men by being populated mostly by female characters. And now four actresses are on the short-list for two of the series’ major roles.
