Charlie Sheen Stars in Anger Management Promos

You’ve probably heard that Charlie Sheen is coming back to television with Anger Management, which is based on the movie of the same name. Yesterday, FX released six commercials, each one featuring a punchline from the show. However, they are not really funny because the promos at 10 to 20 seconds each don’t provide any context for the joke.

The first commercial is the longest and doesn’t actually have anything to do with the show, except for the fact that it stars Charlie Sheen as Charlie Sheen. At least he gets in a good, albeit overused, joke in at the end.

I have a feeling Anger Management is going to be an uninspired sitcom. In the next promo, Charlie makes a hackneyed joke about why he thought his wife wanted to have sex.

The jokes don’t get much better.

We’re four commercials in and now I think he’s cheating on his wife with his therapist. Don’t other sitcoms wait at least fifteen minutes into the pilot for that reveal?

I hope you figured out the dark-haired woman is his therapist. Otherwise, this next joke doesn’t make much sense.

I don’t really get the joke in this next promo. I hope it will be funnier in context.

Are you looking forward to Charlie Sheen in Anger Management?
