It's terribly sad but true: Charlie Sheen really is winning.

The actor has reason to celebrate today (hooker and cocaine-free, we hope) because FX has picked up his Anger Management sitcom for 90 additional episodes. Yes, 90.

Charlie Sheen as Charlie Goodson

The network was forced to complete the order after making an unusual agreement with Sheen and the series: if it performed well enough, FX wouldn't just order a second season comprised of 10 installments.

No, it would go all out and guarantee 90 more, which takes the total number to 100 and, in all likelihood, the series in to syndication. Which could net Sheen $100 million in all.

Why make such a deal with such a trouble star? Who the heck knows. But might have something to do with money.

Let's hope Sheen continues to use his for a good cause.

Second... Toby!!!

KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah airs Law & Order: SVU on Wednesday nights. That program centers on such horrific crimes as rape and murder.

But the NBC affiliate has drawn its objectionable line at The New Normal, an upcoming sitcom from Glee creator Ryan Murphy that focuses on a gay couple and the family of its surrogate mother.

“For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL’s parent company, Bonneville International, said in a statement.

The New Normal Scene

The decision has been met with backlash from those involved with the show and those who care about gay rights. First, there is star Ellen Barkin's reply on Twitter.

"Shame on you @kslcom," wrote the veteran actress, referring to the move as "blatantly homophic" and adding: "[A] loving gay couple having a baby is inappropriate? What will play in @NBCTheNewNormal spot? A dude reading from the bible?”

Justin Bieber is heading back to the television world. But we doubt he'll be gunned down in the street this time.

The singing sensation has booked a guest-starring role on The Simpsons, as producer Al Jean confirms to Entertainment Weekly that Bieber will portray himself in a 2013 episode titled "The Fabulous Faker Boy."

How and why, exactly, does the 18-year old show up in Springfield?

Justin Bieber Back Home

“He tries to get into a talent show that Bart is playing piano in and they won’t admit him,” the producer says, simply adding: “Draw your own conclusions.”

Jean emphasizes that the role is merely a "cameo," but does tell all who possess Bieber Fever: You "should watch every minute of the show, before and after he’s on.”

This animated smash kicks off its 24th season on September 30 and other celebrities who will lend voices to episodes include Edward Norton, Steve Carell, Zooey Deschanel, Anne Hathaway and Natalie Portman.

After nine seasons on NBC, The Office will air its final episode next May.

Executive producer Greg Daniels confirmed that Season 9 will be its last.

"This year feels like the last chance to … make an artistic ending for the show," Daniels said of the show based on the beloved UK comedy of the same name.

The Office Cast

The Office debuted in the U.S. in 2005, making a star out of Steve Carell as Michael Scott, hapless manager of paper company Dunder-Mifflin's Scranton branch.

Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, BJ Novak, Mindy Kaling, Ed Helms and others have co-starred hilariously in the long-running pseudo-documentary.

Carell left the series after its seventh season in 2010. Daniels says viewers won't want to miss all the questions that will be answered during the swan song.

Among the big reveals? "We're going to see who is behind the documentary. [Fans] will pleased and excited by what we have planned for them this year.”

"There's so much to pay off after nine seasons ... My biggest concern is just packing in all these great ideas the writing staff has into the ending."

It was a close call, and a dangerous call, but Mayim Bialik should be alright.

The actress was involved in a car accident with a vehicle full of tourists this week, going straight to the hospital and initially fearing that she would have to lose a finger that had been nearly severed in the crash.

Mayim Bialik on The Big Bang Theory

However, Bialik is now back to filming The Big Bang Theory Season 6, Tweeting appreciation to the cast and crew for their "love and support" and adding: "Doing ok. Grateful. And tired."

Through her husband, the former Blossom star told fans on Wednesday that she was in a lot of pain, but "will keep all my fingers." Which is very good news. Now she can return her focus to another body part:

The funny bone of viewers everywhere.

Blake Jenner has earned a role on Glee Season 4.

Following an opening season in which Ryan Murphy actually awarded all three finalists with at least some appearance on his Fox hit, the creator said prior to Season 2 that only the actual winner would appear on Glee in 2012-2013.

The Glee Project Final Three

So, how did Jenner pull it out and earn himself a seven-episode stint?

He took on "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain for his final performance, tossing the microphone in a bit of fun showboating - and also writing a poem! That likely put him over the winning edge in the judges' eyes.

The panelists conferred and while all admired Aylin for her personal story, they gushed over Blake's acting skills and Ali's personality.

In the end, the acting won out. But should have? Did Blake Jenner deserve to win season two The Glee Project?

Ryan Lochte and his abs are coming to the CW.

The 11-time Olympic medalist will guest star on 90210's upcoming Season 5 in a pivotal role as ... Ryan Lochte, who's apparently a guest at the resort where Naomi and Max are staying in an attempt to strengthen their relationship.

A far cry from the next Bachelor, but hey.

Hot Ryan Lochte Pic

The 28-year-old, who made his "acting" debut with a Funny or Die video breakdown of peeing in pools, has shown definite interest in the entertainment world.

Will the swimming great build upon this 90210 appearance or will Ryan quickly fade now that the 2012 London Olympics are over? That remains to be seen.

In any case, he's indicated he will try to extend his amazing career through the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, so expect him back in the pool before long.
