Boston.com - Charlie Sheen will be stirring up a new round of laughs when “Anger Management’’ arrives June 28. FX on Tuesday set the premiere date for Sheen’s new sitcom, which returns him to weekly TV after his noisy exit last season from the CBS hit “Two and a Half Men.’’ Announced last summer, “Anger Management’’ is loosely based on the 2003 movie about a non-traditional therapist. Fox says two episodes will air June 28. It has ordered 10 episodes for the first season.
Well this sounds like an absolutely horrible idea. I mean, they always say, when pitching a tv show you should just pick a so-so movie from 10 years ago and then spin off a series from it. Plus, you can't miss by pairing it with an absolute freak of a bi-polar actor who's schtick grew old precisely 11 months ago today.
Seriously are people still into Charlie Sheen's whole bit? It didn't get old soon as you realized he'd came out of his manic state and was actually conscious of his actions? Not to sound callous, but ravings of a mad man are wayyy funnier when they're coming in the middle of an absolute mental breakdown, not when he's producing them as a form of entertainment.
There's 6.7 million people that are still following him on Twitter? Either there are alot more bot/spam followers on Twitter than anyone thought or people just flat out aren't using their accounts anymore, that's the only way to explain it, because the guy certainly aint adding any entertainment or value to your streams, I'll tell you that much. Don't believe me, go look. Of his last 20 or so tweets, 15 were advertisements for Movies, products he's endorsing, or movies that friends and family are in, 2 are happy birthday wishes, and the other few are retweets of some delusional fans slobbering on his knob. HE's BORING AS SHIT. And the fact that there is still any interest in him is a serious indictment on the state of the American education system, as well as the entertainment industry as a whole.
