So that is not the case anymore."

Sheen explained the move would make his character more interesting: "Her character leaves and I start circling the dr...

The Worst And The Best Of Summer TV 2012

Summer. Some might think of it as a time to take a few days off, soak up the sun and eat popsicles. I think of it as the time for the most delicious and smutty television. Let’s face it: networks don’t exactly roll out the red carpet for your summer viewing pleasure. Instead, it’s the B-list shows that somehow made it through production but weren’t good enough to be shown through the regular season. And for that, I heartily thank the networks (and air conditioning) for the good and bad TV shows that tided me through the summer months.

Charlie Sheen Is Winning With 'Anger Management'

7/4/2012 12:30pm EDT
'Anger Management'
Charlie Sheen is winning, apparently. (Never mind that he would like to forget that kind of vocabulary.) His return to TV in ‘Anger Management’ posted 5.5 million viewers in its first episode. That marks cable’s most watched sitcom premiere. A second episode drew 5.7 million viewers.

Over on the top broadcast networks, NBC had a good week. Not only did it score the top three programs (all ‘America’s Got Talent’) but it did well with the U.S. Olympic Trials. Eight editions of that program made the Top 20, meaning NBC had more shows in the Top 20 than any other network. Your guess is as good...

Anger Management TV Series

Charlie Sheen Exploded With Expletives At Staples Center Last Night

Charlie Sheen was either acting like himself, or trying to promote his upcoming FX Anger Management (in an ironic way), when he exploded at the Staples Center last night.

A security guard apparently told him he couldn’t re-enter the stadium after taking a smoke break and TMZ has the video. After he gets thrown out, he tells TMZ, “Go Thunder!”

His night was never going to turn out right. A fan asked him on the way in if he “ever done bath salts?” (A clear reference to that cannibal/zombie-want-to-be that was in the news recently.)

After trying to behave himself – probably to get the show ...
