As expected, FX has ordered 90 more episodes of Charlie Sheen’s horrendous sitcom Anger Management. All the fun and misogyny of Two and a Half Men, now with lower production values! Management had an unusual deal with FX, wherein a certain ratings threshold over the first ten episodes would automatically lead to a 100-episode pickup; even with a ratings drop after the first week, the show’s still averaging more than 4 million viewers per episode, so it met its ratings requirements. Enjoy, America.
