WINNING: Charlie Sheen’s “Anger Management” Gets Renewed For Another 90 Episodes

Charlie Sheen really is the man that will always win.

Charlie Sheen really is the man that will always win.

Originally, FX Networks ordered a simple ten episodes of Sheen’s new series, “Anger Management” with a deal that if the show met ratings expectations, it would trigger an automatic order for the additional episodes.

FX announced yesterday that those expectations have been met and greatly surpassed, with “Management” bringing in an estimated 4.53 million viewers per episode, and holding the record for the most-watched sitcom premiere in cable history with 5.74 million viewers!

So what does that mean?  An instant order for another 90 episodes!  Executive Vice President of FX, Chuck Saftler, explains:

“We set a very high ratings bar that included some additional hurdles for ‘Anger Management’ to earn its back-90 order and the series met and exceed those metrics…Charlie Sheen and the entire cast did an amazing job in the first 10 episodes, which were produced in a very tight window. I have no doubt that the producers and cast will be able to pull off the Herculean task of producing 90 episodes over the next two years.”

Sheen told The New York Times that “Anger Managment” is his “swan song”. And if the ratings hold for the next two years, it will be one hell of a song to be singing on the way out…

Production on season two of “Anger Management” begins on September 24.  Look forward to new episodes on FX in January.

There Is A New Reality Show Where 15 Men Compete For A Chance To Impregnate One Lucky Woman

Published

on

An unrivaled “mother of all reality shows.”

We’ve seen contestants compete for love, money and fame on reality television but never a baby. We are truly living in unprecedented times.

The newest reality show making waves is called Labor Of Love, which premiered on Fox last night, as it follows a 41-year old divorcee on her quest to get knocked up. Kristy is recently single and tired of navigating through the dating world to find the man she would like to procreate with, so when all else failed she turned to reality tv. I guess Craigslist has grown too cliché? With her eggs frozen and a fertility doctor on standby, Kristy now has to choose between 15 lucky(?) hopefuls as they all vie for a chance to put their bun in her magic oven. According to the show’s trailer these hunky men “are ready to skip the dating and go straight to baby making”…which just sounds like the Tinder of reality television to me.

The new show is being produced and hosted by Kristin Davis of Sex and the City fame and the irony isn’t lost here when you remember just how badly Charolette wanted a husband and kids. Davis helps Kristy on her journey by hosting a series of challenges for the competitors which, according to the trailer, will be filled with things like contraction stimulators and costumed black bears. This show is really striving for the “most outrageous” superlative. On last night’s episode the men were given a hand’s on challenge as they each had to hop into a port-a-potty and deposit their…uh specimen…into a cup. Then, on national television, their results were measured and ranked according to fertility. I guess we can call it “must seed” tv.

With all the things we’ve seen on reality television over the years Labor Of Love isn’t the most preposterous thing to emblazon our screens but it’s definitely high on the list. You can catch the show every Thursday night on Fox and for a tease of what’s to come this season, check out the trailer below!

The Trailer For Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ Is The Glimmer Of Hope We All Need Right Now

Published

on

Netflix is quite becoming on the former First Lady.

If you woke up today looking for a boost of hope in your coffee cup, I’ve got something even better because the trailer for Michelle Obama’s documentary just dropped and it is chock filled with good feelings. The Netflix documentary follows the former First Lady on a 34-city book tour for her best selling memoir, Becoming. In the book, Obama divides her life into three parts: “Becoming Me,” “Becoming Us,” and “Becoming More.” The documentary seems to heavily focus on “Becoming More” as the trailer depicts many instances of Obama speaking to young women and children about taking charge of their future.

Politics aside, there’s no denying the grace, strength and positivity of the former first lady. The trailer begins with Obama saying “I am from the South Side of Chicago. That tells you as much about me as you need to know,” and she is so right. Growing up in one of the roughest cities in the country could have led to a completely different life if it wasn’t for her determination and perseverance. This message of hope is EXACTLY what our country…no, the world…needs right now!

Becoming premieres on Netflix on May 6th. Check out the trailer below!

New Game Inspired By ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Makes You Take Care Of Six Adult Tamagotchis

Published

on

Is this post really about those stupid Tamagotchis? Actually it is.

Alexis Rose seemed to proudly recount a terrible misadventure at least once an episode on the beloved sitcom, Schitt’s Creek. Whether it was a blind date turned kidnapping, visiting boyfriends in rehab or escaping the Yakuza, Alexis always managed to use her wits to overcome crisis. None of that mattered to David though, who was wary of entrusting Alexis with looking after his store because of one particularly devastating misadventure. “Is this about those stupid Tamagotchis?” Alexis asks David in a season 5 episode. “You left me with six of them, David. Taking care of that many is like a full-time job!” A full-time job Alexis wasn’t prepared for, however, as all six of the virtual pets died. To be fair, those little 8-bit critters were more needy than any living creature on this planet…I took the battery out of mine after four days. Parenting is hard.

Well if you think you can handle taking care of six Tamagotchis better than Alexis did, now’s your chance! Niantic Inc. game designer, Joe Magdalena, created a computer game called “Turbogatchi.” The rules of the game are simple enough, “Your brother David has left you, Alexis, in charge of his 6 ADULT virtual pets that are in PERFECT HEALTH! How long can you keep them all alive and happy? After they’re all dead (they WILL die) you’ll get a score for how long they all stayed alive for. Be sure to share and brag about your highest score!” Full disclosure, this is harder than it seems! All these things do are eat and poop…ew, David.
