Charlie Sheen

'Anger Management' Show

Picked Up by FX

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."

Not the best channel to be on right now considering DirecTv is about to drop the channel because of the price hike FOX is trying to force on them.

This if it does well, is probabley better then sticking around Two and a Half Men for more years. Men had a great run for him, 8 years of success on a show is great and very much rare to sustain, but it kept getting bigger, and it ended in the biggest of PR public outbursts that have elevated him into something more iconic. It's healthy to do something fresh and new as well, and perhaps being away from Chuck Lorre will give him some extra peace, and if Two and half men keeps slipping in quality and ratings, he's only going to get those viewers on his show.

I just canceled FX off my system upon hearing this news. ANYONE ANYWHERE who aids and abets drug addicts and junkies with millions won't be doing it with MY money and time.

FX has some great shows that are actually funny. This will hopefully add to the list.

Best of luck Charlie. It's got to be funnier than the current 2.5 men.

Only takes a sec to block that channel. Can't handle the warlock and all the "winning" he is doing.

Hmmm, is this why suddenly Fox (who owns FX) is charging us 40% more per month for FX and Fox Movie Channel? Thankfully DirecTV won't be bullied... I love Son's of A and American Horror Story but tired of the constantly increasing costs of every damn thing.. I'll get my shows online thank you very much.
