After two episodes, Charlie Sheen is proving to be anything but a losing proposition for FX.
The series debut of Anger Management garnered 5.47 million viewers last night, a record number for the premiere of a cable comedy and the most watched series premiere in FX history.
The second installment, meanwhile, actually improved upon this figure: 5.74 million households tuned in.
Sheen also built a very strong lead in for a pair of other critical darlings: The season premieres of Wilfred and Louie increase 71 and 55 percent, respectively, over their prior season averages.
