Anger Management is Over.

It was what it was. 1/2 to a 1/3rd as potent as an episode of Two and Half Men when Charlie Sheen was on board, other than that, an outright clone.

100 episodes in 3 years.

90 episodes in two years (that is listed as one season).

What we are seeing is not the future, it is the past.

A battery farm that produces TV.

Also I think they were afraid Sheen was going to do something stupid and they had to get the syndication package complete ASAP. The plan was to make a hundred episodes and stop. This was a controlled exit that begun with the first episode of season 2.

Considering his real life father was part of the cast, it's clear that Anger Management was the structure (self-medication/therapy?) that Charlie needed to get his life back on track.

"Bring me a new script or I'm going to do a line of coke."

I can see Charlie, not wanting free time, and everyone else having to follow his mania to work hard lest he play hard.

90 episodes in 2 years.

Wow.

But the machine is in place.

Bruce Helford has a production unit attached to FX that thinks that it can make at least 50 episodes of a Two and a Half Men clone per year, and there's no reason that he should stand down other than dignity or selfworth.

FX just needs a new big-name Actor to drive their next clone.

I'm sure they rushed production as quickly as possible to hit 100 episodes before Sheen OD'ed himself.
