That is not a typo. FX has picked up 90 more episodes of the comedy.
August 29, 2012
FX announced today that Anger Management has been given an order for 90 new episodes. The pick-up was part of a deal struck with the network that stated if the series met a designated average ratings threshold over eight of its first 10 episodes, it would trigger the massive order.
Anger Management has gotten off to a strong start in its freshman run, becoming the highest-rated new comedy series on cable in 2012, with an average 4.53 million Total Viewers (2.5 million among adults 18-49). The series stars Charlie Sheen as an anger management therapist who has issues of his own.
Production on the newly ordered episodes is set to begin next month with an expected return in January 2013.

Leave out Charlie jumping into bed with Kate constantly. Felt like I was watching two and a half men. Their relationship does not bring anything to the show.

I watched one episode and couldn't stand it. There Charlies is, AGAIN, in bed with a beautiful woman. That got old in Two and a half, and it's worse in this show. I was shocked when I read the 90 episode deal. Ridiculous ~
And dragging most of his family in episodes is really low.

The show has potential. Critics said it was much funnier than Two and a Half Men, but I would disagree. Sheen is very talented, but I think the people in his group are the funny ones--especially the old man. What they do need to do though is please, please get rid of Selma Blair. OMG, she is awful. She has no facial expressions. She always looks like she is pouting. I never liked her in anything. If they replaced her with someone funny, maybe that would help. It is supposed to be a comedy, right??

Wow. Who actually likes watching Charlie Sheen? I mean his train-wreck novelty has seriously worn off. 90 episodes, for real? He must have the best agents and lawyers ever. Well I definitely won't be watching even one of those 90 episodes.

Dang, that show is okay, not 90 episode order okay lol. I'd probably want to see how they follow up with the second season before making such a high demand.

Not that it matters couldn't even get passed the first two.

90 episodes, that is crazy. That's almost 2 years worth and 9 seasons if they go with the current season set up. But most likely they will go with 30 episode seasons.

true that 90 new showes IF the first five meet with enough people watching.
