Charlie Sheen - Charlie Sheen's Tv Comeback A Big Hit

Charlie Sheen has hit a home run with his TV comeback - his new sitcom Anger Management debuted in America to record ratings on Thursday (28Jun12).
The actor signed up for the new comedy, based on Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson's 2003 movie of the same name, last year (11) after he was fired from his former sitcom job, Two and a Half Men, following a public bust-up with producers.
The much-hyped comedy, starring Sheen as a former baseball ace-turned-anger management psychiatrist, premiered on U.S. network FX on Thursday and it's already a big hit - 5.5 million people tuned in to watch the first episode, while 5.7 million caught the second installment of the show, which followed immediately afterwards.
The viewing figures make Anger Management the most-watched series premiere of any show in the FX network's history, and the most-watched scripted comedy broadcast in cable history.
The comedy has been picked up for a 10-episode run.
Celebrating the news, Sheen took to his Twitter.com page on Friday (29Jun12) and wrote, "Thank you all for tuning in!!"
