Charlie Sheen's triumphant return to television will take place on cable ... because the FX Network just sealed a deal to run his new sitcom, "Anger Management."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, at least 3 cable networks bid on the show ... but FX emerged victorious. 

The deal is what's known as a "10-90" -- if the first 10 "test" episodes do well, the network will order 90 more. 

As TMZ first reported, Sheen will play the role of the therapist -- loosely based on Jack Nicholson's character in the movie "Anger Management."

Yay, I love Charlie Sheen! Miss him now that he's not on two and half men. I'm sure he will be just as good in this new show like he was in the last.
