    I see that ppl judged Charlie without giving him a chance. But this Anger Mgmt show just sucks. Only a dolt could seriously like this sgow

  2. tony says

    anger-management is an embarrassment to fx and a disappointment:( never had seen a worst show in my life! Charlie sheen needs to stop being a dumb ass! C’MON barney is better than this show! cancel the show for your own good fx before charlie sheen takes all Ur F#ck’en money and spend it on all that **** called drugs!

  3. Kungpaochicken says

    Lets hope it doesn’t go too good, ol’ Charlie might lose his flippin’ mind again and snort an entire shipping cargo’s worth of coke in one sitting. 7 gram rocks falling out his flared red nostrils, tiger blood, WINNING!

  4. Jo Caruso says

    Love this show!!! Who and why did someone deside to pull it? It’s great entertainment and very funny. Come on guys, bring it back!

  5. Will says

    I love this show..it’s totally different from his last show but it’s Charlie Sheen. I hope it stays because I haven’t missed an episode. want more

  6. EShy says

    This is a 90 episode pickup, not just a 2nd season. that’s the deal they made. if the ratings are good enough, they’re doing 90 more episodes without worrying about getting canceled. I’ve never seen something like that for a sitcom (Lost is the only show I remember getting a multi year deal)

    • says

      EShy ยป Anger Management hasn’t been renewed yet. The plan was to run Lost for a certain numbers of episodes/seasons but it’s my understanding that it wasn’t actually given a multiple year renewal. There have been a couple shows that have been given huge episode orders. House of Payne comes to mind. It received a 100 eps order then a 46 eps order after that.

    Good show. Great writing and acting. Strong characters. Would be a smash on other networks. Sheen needs structure and discipline and I think he shines best under a tight ship leadership. Seems to be working here

  8. Duane says

    Don’t think they’ll cancel it. I believe it was a 100 ep. in a row (cheaper to make) he is signed for. Maybe a diff. day or back to back with Louie. The other 2 sitcoms suck.

  9. Craig says

    Those numbers have dropped off a cliff. I hope they aren’t paying Charlie too much, or this thing will be cancelled.

  10. K man says

    Its funny but they should keep carter from spin city as his neighbor
    And grace as bartender yes for second season
    Keep Charlie busy is the key to winning

    If the do cancel should only be if he goes back
    To two half men like that will happen

    Prove me wrong.
