Charlie Sheen returned to the scene of the massacre -- Radio City Music Hall -- two days after his disastrous show. And wouldn't you know it, Charlie rebounded like a champ. Read our recap below.
7:58 PM ET -- Crowd is on its way into the theater, but tonight something is missing -- the "no hecklers" sign. Seeing as how it didn't work on Friday night, it doesn't really matter.
8:02 PM ET -- How's this for random ... James Lipton is in the house (see below). Charlie, what's your favorite curse word?
8:11 PM ET -- Sheen pal Simon Rex has taken the stage to inspect the crowd. No sign of Charlie yet.
8:19 PM ET -- Sheen has taken the stage and the

ovation and told the crowd, "I don't even think I was here Friday night."
8:22 PM ET -- Sheen is taking questions from the crowd
after he threw his script away. He told the crowd, "Friday night got a
little f**king hijacked because I let people get into my magic f**king

and handed out hats and t-shirts. A girl came up on stage to "audition"

blonde in the crowd, then put on an FDNY shirt. He then offered to pay
for the whole crowd to get "WINNING" tattoos.

8:49 PM ET -- Even more random ... baseball legend Darryl Strawberry just came up on stage.
8:53 PM ET -- Just to give you an idea of how much

ridiculous. @charliesheen is killling it - huge 180 from friday! Loving

to go to Warner Bros. and ask him back. Not happening.
