Charlie Sheen

Halfway to $150 Mil Payday

EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Sheen
has officially made it halfway to the biggest payday of his life ... $150 million from "Anger Management" ... and no one really thought he'd make it this far.

Charlie just wrapped his 50th episode of the show ... a milestone in the broadcast world ... because once "Anger Management" hits 100 episodes, it's eligible for syndication.

Syndication -- where a show is packaged and sold off to TV stations around the world -- is where the big bucks are ... and we're told Charlie stands to earn at LEAST $150 million if a syndication deal goes through.   It took Charlie nearly 3 times as long to earn the equivalent sum -- $150 mil -- for "Two and a Half Men."

Here's the rub.  The 100th episode of "Anger Management" is set to film in October, 2014.  That gives Charlie well over a year to do that thing he does ... which can sometimes derail a show.  But, so far, so good.

I cannot stand Anger Management but loved Two and a Half Men, when Charlie was on it. He WAS the show and he did NOT derail it, TMZ. He showed up to work and found out he was canned. He never missed an episode, ever. Dick Van Dyke was an alcoholic, too and no one even knew in The Dick Van Dyke Show from the 1960...'s.

I can't help but be happy for him, kinda cool guy- but I REALLY feel sorry for Lamar, now you have another fake drug story at the top of the page all day again, just so you look like it was a valid story. You're a POS TMZ. Gone down the tubes, bought by the worst trash in the entertainment industry, the Karfarts-ians.

Wonder why Harvey didn't caption: Repeated woman abuser, who shot one of his girlfriends, Charlie Sheen. Oh, I know.....he's white. He saves those headlines for black men. Harvey, your witch hunt is coming up very soon. Prepare for it....

No way he should get that kind of money. Boils down to if people know your family. May be he will shoot it up his veins or drink it up until his liver explode. We all know most of that money is going to drugs, liquor and prostitutes. To bad he has no time to fake like he is raising his kids.

Two and Half was a GREAT show when he was on it but how many other shows have been great but they eventually run out of material. Who is to say had he not had the falling out the show still wouldn't be suffering now...Anger Managements is not worth that kind of $, he must be a damn good business person to land a deal with no proven record. Congrats to him but it sucks for us, there are so many other shows they let go that I would rather be watching.

TMZ is in the business to either fabricate or embellish on hearsay.
How much of his alleged drinking, drug use and cavorting with prostitutes is over blown hype ? Have any of these people who post here ever been to his house and partied with him over the past 5 or so years ? I didn't think so ! Therefore, the opinions expressed here are all based on hearsay.

It appears Charlie is a smart business man. Generally speaking heavy drug users and addicts don't have the mental capacity to do what this man has done and be extremely successful.

Go get it Charlie !
