Charlie Sheen

Halfway to $150 Mil Payday

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.

Hurray for Charlie ... I don't save any money either; could sure use a loan. Anyway, live as large as you like, c; you've earned it.

I'm a Charlie fan, but the show is terrible. He made a cookie cutter sitcom on FX. It was purely a money grab.

You don't need 100 episodes for syndication. That's how it used to be. Now it is 81. Given that you are supposed to be the go to source for all things Hollywood TMZ you should know this.

Mike, glad to know there is not much domestic violence in marriage, I'll be sure to pass that along to all of the battered wives residing in the Crisis Center shelter.

It's a Got Damned shame that in America, all of the weath is given to 5% of the population for things that don't even matter meanwhile we the suckers who are teachers, social workers on skid row(myself), policeman, fireman, waiters and waitresses, garbage man, and a host of others can barely make it gets chips just to stay afloat... Damn I'm in the wrong line of work!
