WEtv has announced its 2014/2015 slate, featuring returning series, along with an array of new projects. Among them is a pilot for a quiz show with none other than Charlie Sheen. More specifically, Charlie Sheen’s Bad Influence, which will test how well engaged couples know each other before they walk down the aisle.

No longer a singing blond lawyer-in-training, instead, Laura Bell Bundy will be researching human sexuality with Charlie Sheen.
The Tony-nominated actress has joined the cast of FX’s Anger Management as a series regular. As Dr. Jordan Denby, an alcoholic recent divorcee, Bundy will be a source of emotional whiplash in Charlie’s life as the two embark on a sex study.
Bundy originated the role of Elle Woods in Broadway’s Legally Blonde – The Musical and has appeared on TV shows like How I Met Your Mother and Hart of Dixie. She is also a country singer and songwriter, and is currently on tour with Rascal Flatts. She begins shooting Anger Management this week.
As rumors continued to swirl about the tension on the Anger Management set between star Charlie Sheen and co-star Semla Blair, Lionsgate released a statement late Tuesday confirming the actress had departed the FX show.
“We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best,” the studio said in a brief statement.
After an initial 10-episode run, the show, which airs on FX, returned in January with the back 90 episodes of its 100-episode order.
Charlie Sheen has weighed in on the Angus T. Jones controversy.
Speaking to People magazine, the Two and a Half Men veteran had something to say about his younger former co-star calling the CBS hit sitcom “filth” and urging viewers not to watch.
“With Angus’s Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed,” says Sheen, who now stars on FX’s Anger Management after having been fired from Men for his own meltdown last year.
Sheen’s comment was almost disappointingly brief, especially compared to his epic rants last year. Though you have to like his Hale-Bopp reference (the Heaven’s Gate cult attached religious significance to Hale-Bopp comet and committed ritualistic suicide in 1997). Also: We couldn’t help but half-jokingly wonder if Jones’ religious fervor was despite spending years working with hedonistic Sheen or somehow because of it — it must have had some kind of impact to grow up working alongside such a dramatic personality. Of course, Sheen would probably say the show itself is to blame/credit for Jones’ religious intensity.
Is Angus T. Jones the new Charlie Sheen?
The 19-year-old actor isn’t spewing nonsense about tiger blood and winning. But Jones is biting the hand that feeds him in a very public way by urging Two and a Half Men viewers to stop watching the CBS comedy hit that he’s appeared on for ten years — and calling the program “filth.”
A video in which Jones laments his involvement in the sitcom appeared on YouTube today. The clip is the second part of a religious testimony Jones gave to Chris “The Forerunner” Hudson, a conspiracy theorist who believes President Obama’s reelection is a sign that the End of Days is near. After describing his religious awakening, Jones takes aim at the series that made him famous.
In the 100-episode dash of FX’s Anger Management, Charlie Sheen is clearing the ratings hurdles.
FX president and general manager John Landgraf says the new comedy series is exceeding the undisclosed ratings threshold required to pick up the show. FX had agreed to order 90 more episodes of the series if the show cleared a certain audience level. According to data for the first six episodes, Sheen is on target to stay on FX for a long time.
“We won’t make a decision on the 90 episodes until all 10 have aired but the series up until now has given us every indication [that it will return],” Landgraf told critics at the TCA press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday. READ FULL STORY
Even a high-speed collision with a mighty locomotive can’t stop Charlie Sheen, who’s set to return to TV this June on FX’s Anger Management. The second teaser for his new series pokes fun at Sheen’s storied reputation by showing Sheen walking away from a literal train wreck unscathed — then saying, with a smirk, “Come on. Everyone deserves a 24th chance.”
This is the second Anger Management teaser that neglects to include footage from the show itself. FX’s decision to advertise its sitcom this way is a little curious, considering how well Anger tested in a preview screening. Then again, Sheen’s fans likely don’t care about the details of his next series — they just want to see Charlie being Charlie. And on that end, FX’s teasers deliver. Judge for yourself by watching the clip below.
If FX was mildly nervous that Charlie Sheen’s public persona may affect his chances for a comeback, this information should come as a huge relief: EW has learned that test audiences who saw the pilot of his new comedy Anger Management recently were both pleased with his new half-hour comedy and eager to see the 46-year-old actor succeed in a new series.
The majority of men and women who attended a screening of the half-hour comedy in California’s San Fernando Valley last week rated the multi-camera pilot favorably, while over 80 percent gave Sheen an enthusiastic thumbs-up for his performance as an unorthodox therapist, according to one well-placed source. The pilot that also features the comeback of Brett Butler as a bartender played even better among women in the 18-34 and 18-49 demographic. READ FULL STORY
Charlie Sheen is reuniting with ex-wife Denise Richards — on the small screen.
Sheen has tapped his former spouse for a guest spot on his forthcoming FX show, Anger Management, EW has confirmed.
Richards will play the new business partner of Sheen’s character’s ex, Jennifer (Shawnee Smith). TVLine first reported the news.
Anger Management, which released its first promotional spot earlier today, is set to debut June 28.

‘Two and a Half Men’ co-creator apologizes for ‘stupid’ anti-woman joke

The jury’s still out on whether Charlie Sheen’s return to primetime will live up to the hype, but from the look of devilish glee on his face in Anger Management‘s first teaser, it’s safe to say Sheen thinks it will. The short-and-sweet promo riffs on the death of Two and a Half Men‘s Charlie Harper and rebirth of Charlie Goodson. Could it be a slight jab at Men‘s decision to get one last gasp out of Charlie by hiring Oscar-winner Kathy Bates to play his ghost? Or is Charlie Sheen just a seriously weird and morbid dude? Judge for yourself below. READ FULL STORY
Charlie Sheen will return to TV this summer.

Here’s how it works: READ FULL STORY
EW has confirmed that teen actress Daniela Bobadilla will join Selma Blair and Shawnee Smith as one of the women in Charlie Sheen’s life on FX’s new sitcom Anger Management. Bobadilla will play the 13-year-old obsessive-compulsive daughter of Sheen’s unorthodox therapist and Smith’s character. Per Bobadilla’s rep, it was actually George Lopez who made the introduction after the actress starred with the former late-night host in the 2009 TV movie, Mr. Troop Mom. Bobadilla was recently seen in recurring roles on Awake and Desperate Housewives.
FX has placed an initial 10-episode order for Anger Management. No premiere date is on the schedule yet.
