The deal with Charlie Sheen's sitcom was to hit a certain rating, and it did successfully after 10 episodes.
Charlie Sheen is winning as it was announced that FX has picked up his comedy series "Anger Management" for 90 more episodes. This means the series hit its target and initial deal to meet certain, but unspecified ratings thresholds.
"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," Chuck Saftler, executive VP of FX announced on Wednesday, August 29. "Bruce Helford has created a sitcom that works extremely well in our pre-10 p.m. programming lineup."
He continued, "Charlie Sheen and the entire cast did an amazing job in the first ten 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."
"Anger Management" which is loosely based on Adam Sandler's movie of the same name, has averaged 4.5 million viewers and 2.5 million in adults 18-49. Production of season 2 will be kicked off September 24.
