Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management' Sets Record Ratings
It's been over a year since Charlie Sheen, 46, was fired from Two and a Half Men by producer Chuck Lorre and promptly replaced by Ashton Kutcher, but it looks like Sheen is "winning" again after the two-part premiere of his new show, Anger Management on FX, drew 5.5 million and 5.7 million viewers on Thursday.
The early Nielson numbers show that Anger Management was the most-watched sitcom premiere on cable in history, reports USA Today. The premiere helped boost ratings for Wilfred, starring Elijah Wood and Louie with comedian Louis C.K., which followed the program, and even the series launch of BrandX, the new late-night talk show hosted by funnyman and Katy Perry ex, Russell Brand.
Even so, Sheen used to be accustomed almost 15 million viewers on his final episodes of Two and a Half Men on network television.
Catch Anger Management Thursday nights on FX.
