Anger Management, the TV sitcom loosely based on the 2003 film, is best-known as Charlie Sheen’s first big TV venture after leaving Two and a Half Men. In the Volume 3 collection, Charlie Goodson (Charlie Sheen) is a former baseball player who after injuring himself in a fit of anger is now an unconventional group therapist. He leads a misfit therapy group, mentally torments his best friend Kate Wales (Selma Blair), and somehow finds time to sleep with a long line of supermodels.
I have only seen a few episodes of Two and a Half Men, enough to know that it isn’t a show that appeals to me. Anger Management made me wish that I was watching Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen can be a very funny actor, but Anger Management is an uncomfortable masturbatory project, a comedy that revolves around how amazing Charlie Sheen is. Rich baseball player? »

FX’s “Louie” has never been much of a ratings draw, but it returned from a lengthy break Monday by delivering better-than-average numbers for its fourth-season premiere.
Nielsen estimates that the 10 p.m. episode of “Louie,” the first episode of the critical fave since September 2012, averaged 941,000 viewers at 10 p.m., building on its lead-in from the movie “Horrible Bosses” (809,000). A second episode at 10:30 p.m. drew 910,000.
It was down from its season-three premiere in June 2012 (1.43 million), but that came on the same night as the much-anticipated return to television of Charlie Sheen in “Anger Management.” Compared to its most recent season average (791,000), though, the Louis C.K. series was up 19%.
“Louie” was also up 26% in adults 18-49 from its third season (635,000 vs. 505,000). The second episode on Monday edged up in the demo to 651,000.
In 18-49 rating for the 10 p.m. hour (0.5), FX ranked sixth among cable networks — behind TNT (NBA Playoffs), USA, »

After a 19-month hiatus, the Season 4 premiere of FX comedy Louie came in 19% above the show’s Season 3 average (941,000 vs. 791,000) and up 26% in adults 18-49 (635,000 vs. 505,000). FX argued that placing “any major significance” on season-to-season premiere episodes comparisons “makes little sense” because the Season 3 premiere of Louie got “overly inflated” by the heavily promoted premiere night of Anger Management that night — June 28, 2012. FX’s launch of Charlie Sheen starrer Anger Management nabbed a whopping 5.6 million viewers in the 9 Pm hour, powering Wilfred to 2.53 million, followed by the Louie season kickoff, which clocked 1.43 million viewers.
