BIRMINGHAM, Mich. - When Ron Artest first came to town I ignored him, wanting nothing to do with a wacko. "A lot of people do that," Artest says. I thought he was just a thug. "I tell people who call me a thug you're calling the right person a thug," he says. "I was raised to be a thug. " Others insist he's a sweetheart, although Ron Artest and sweetheart don't really seem to go together. But here we are in a Detroit suburb, the wacko thug more sensitive, insightful and sweet than advertised.

News Corp.'s Fox Television Stations Group has acquired rerun rights to Charlie Sheen's new comedy "Anger Management. " The deal keeps the show in the same family. News Corp.'s cable network FX telecasts new episodes of the show. "Anger Management" premiered to solid if not spectacular ratings for FX earlier this year, averaging close to 5 million viewers per episode. That was good enough for the cable channel to agree to order an additional 90 episodes. That commitment allowed the show's production company, Debmar-Mercury, to sell reruns to the Fox stations after just 10 episodes.

I'm usually not a huge fan of WWE's backstage skits. Often they are filled with juvenile comedy and go on far too long, sort of like every Adam Sandler movie ever made. This week on "Monday Night Raw" however, a skit appeared that may make a believer out of me. It seems that Daniel Bryan, who every week becomes irate when fans start chanting his "Yes! Yes! Yes!" catchphrase, has been ordered by "Raw" GM AJ Lee to undergo anger management counseling. And the results have been hilarious.

Americans are having something of an anger management moment. Tweeters hated on NBC's coverage of the Olympics, campaign crowds heckle both presidential candidates, and viewers lost interest in the last season of "American Idol" because the judges were too nice. Last week, the presidential campaign took its turn, detouring from healthcare and tax cuts to focus on which candidate is the angry one. First, Mitt Romney accused Barack Obama and Joe Biden of running an "angry and desperate" campaign.

A bit of ratings counseling is in need for Charlie Sheen's TV comeback: His FX series"Anger Management" saw another double-digit drop in viewership in its third week. Its fourth episode, which aired Thursday night, delivered 2.4 million total viewers, according to Nielsen figures - down 28% from the previous week and 27% in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo. The viewership dive is all the more troubling considering its second week had already experienced a drop of 2 million viewers.
