Anger Management Premiere Sets Cable Ratings Record

by at . Comments

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.

Did you tune in for Anger Management? What did you think?

Nonsense. Truthers believe that "911 was an isdine job." This is mostly a leftwing belief as lefties are always seeking rationalizations for doing nothing about radical Islam. Some so-called "paleoconservatives" are truthers as well, but paleos beliefs on foreign policy are very similar to those of the far left. They are not at all typical of conservative thought.
