Tonight on FX Anger Management Charlie Sheen new and highly anticipated show premiere. This is a first step for Sheen in returning to sitcom TV since his firing from “Two and a Half Men” by ABC.
Charlie stars as Charlie Goodson, a former baseball player who lost his job due to rage, is now a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management, like Jack Nicholson did in the film version. Charlie has a very successful private practice, he holds group sessions with regular patients and even does pro bono counseling for an inmate group at a state prison.
In the promos, Charlie walks away from a fiery train wreck, unharmed and with a naughty smile, he says, “Everyone deserves a 24th chance.” Like Alan in “Two and a Half Men”, Charlie is now a pathetic divorced dad.
Charlie tries to show a group of patients how to redirect their rage by hitting a punching bag, he says, “You can’t fire me, I quit” and “You think you can replace me with some other guy, go ahead, it won’t be the same.” Now who do you think that was directed at?
