HMMMMMM SHOULD BE INTERESTING…….FROM TVLINE…..
Charlie Sheen’s new comedy Anger Management has been picked up by FX, the network announced late Thursday.
The cabler has ordered 10 episodes of the sitcom, loosely based on the Joe Roth-produced 2003 feature starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, to premiere in summer 2012. As previously reported, comedy vet Bruce Helford (George Lopez, The Drew Carey Show) will serve as showrunner.
“We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents — and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play,” said FX prez John Landgraf. “Two and a Half Men [reruns have] been an outstanding component of FX’s schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well.”

BUT THEN THE ROAST HAD THE BEST NUMBERS FOR A ROAST EVER…..
On the same night that his former stomping grounds, Two and a Half Men, scored its largest audience and demos ever, Charlie Sheen gave Comedy Central its most-watched roast in channel history.
Monday’s Roast of Charlie Sheen drew 6.4 million total viewers
SO LET US HOPE THEY ARE ALL HAPPY NOW.
HMMMM, IT IS JUST THE MONEY THEY OWED HIM SO NO BIG DEAL. AND THE RESIDUALS WERE ALREADY HIS SO MEDIA OUTLETS TRYING TO PLAY THIS UP AS A HUGE ‘WINNING’ EVENT FOR SHEEN ARE WRONG.
Charlie Sheen will immediately get $25 million in his settlement with Warner Bros. in his “Two and a Half Men” dispute — but over time he’ll get 5 times that amount … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the settlement tell TMZ … Charlie will get the $25 mil in about two weeks and, as we reported, the sum represents the monies owed him for the work he already performed on the series and the profits that have already accrued.
But Charlie has shot around 180 episodes for the show, and in the next 7 – 10 years, the settlement will produce $100 million for the actor in syndication profits.
WHAT A PRATTISH AND CHILDISH THING TO ASK FOR. WANKER.
Producers of the Emmy Awards have been asked to cut Charlie Sheen from its telecast, Deadline is reporting. Apparently Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre has asked John Schaffner, the chairman of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, to eliminate Sheen’s planned appearance.
According to the report, Warner Bros. TV simultaneously asked Fox whether Sheen could be dropped from the broadcast, but as of now, there are still plans to have Sheen appear during the ceremony. There’s also the possibility that he will be presenting the award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, a category which includes nominees Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki from Lorre’s series The Big Bang Theory.
A representative from Fox says that they are unaware of any such demands and so cannot confirm or deny the reports.
