(Newser) – Next summer, Charlie Sheen is coming back to your TV screen. FX picked up his Anger Management sitcom, it announced yesterday. Fittingly, FX is also the home of Two and a Half Men reruns. The basic cable network ordered 10 episodes to start, but if the ratings hit a certain level, its deal stipulates that it ponies up for an additional 90 episodes, the Washington Post reports. Lisa de Moraes points out that 100 is the magic syndication number, so the deal essentially means that Sheen doesn't need to stay "at Sober Valley Lodge" too long. Click for more on the sitcom.
