It turns out America’s morbid fascination with love for Charlie Sheen has not diminished. After a very public meltdown led to his dismissal from CBS juggernaut Two and a Half Men last year, the troubled star took his act to FX last night. The first two episodes of his new sitcom Anger Management debuted to the best ratings for a scripted comedy in cable history (not including kids’ shows). Episode one, at 9 pm, topped all-time records in both overall viewers (5.47 million) and the key 18-49 demographic (2.65 million). Episode two, at 9:30, bested it by attracting 5.74 mil total and 2.89 mil in the 18-49 demo. As a point of reference, more typical FX comedy Wilfred later premiered to 2.53 mil total and 1.2 mil in 18-49.
Anger Management sees Sheen stepping into the role of ex-ball player, current anger management coach Charlie Goodson, who gets up to hijinks involving his ex-wife (Shawnee Smith), therapist (Selma Blair), teenaged daughter (Daniela Bobadilla) and various clients (Noureen DeWulf, Barry Corbin).

Although he’s currently playing a big bad vampire on HBO’s True Blood, Christopher Meloni is now set to play a big, bad CEO in David Wain’s rom-com spoof, They Came Together. The picture reunites the Wet Hot American Summer director with stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler. Poehler’s character runs a small knick-knack shop that is about to go out of business thanks to Rudd’s company. THR reports that Meloni will star as Rudd’s boss, the CEO of CorporateCo Coporation and Co, Inc. Written by Wain and Michael Showalter, the picture plans to wrap up casting and shoot this July. They Came Together also stars Ed Helms, Michael Ian Black, Jason Mantzoukas, Cobie Smulders and Noureen DeWulf.
Wet Hot American Summer director, David Wain, is adding some heat to his rom-com spoof They Came Together by way of Cobie Smulders (The Avengers) and Noureen DeWulf (Ocean’s Thirteen). Michael Ian Black joins the reunion of Wain, Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, as he too was part of 2001′s Wet Hot American Summer. The new film, which Wain calls “a spoof/homage/deconstruction/love letter to Romantic Comedies,” was also written by Wain and Michael Showalter, again pairing the former Wet Hot scribes.

Opening this weekend is the Jennifer Lopez & Alex O’Loughlin romantic comedy The Back-up Plan. To help promote the film, I recently got to interview the two stars as a reporter for our partners at Omelete. While I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down to do the interview, I’ll admit it turned out a lot better than I expected. Also, the interview featured a lot of laughter. Perhaps it was due to the questions I asked from the people that follow me on Twitter. But more than likely, it was a combo between the questions and good luck. Trust me, JLo was a lot funnier than I expected and I promise she’ll make you laugh as you watch. We even talked about Anaconda. I couldn’t believe it.
