Charlie Sheen Gets ABC Great Ratings, Christina Aguilera Named Third Coach on 'The Voice' and More

Charlie Sheen on '20/20'Even if ABC waited too long to air their complete Charlie Sheen interview on last night's special '20/20,' as I speculated yesterday, it didn't seem to matter all that much.

According to Deadline.com, ABC won the Tuesday at 10PM timeslot in the 18–49 demo, attracting 9.5 million viewers. '20/20' almost doubled the rating of its lead-in, 'V,' and it gave the Alphabet net its best ratings in that time slot in two years.

Are we ever going to tire of Charlie Sheen mania? Probably. But for now, Sheen continues to be "Winning!", as he is saying on Twitter and all over the media landscape. And now that he's had his twin boys taken away from him, the story doesn't seem like it'll go away anytime soon.

Charlie's a user. He needs and wants things exactly the way HE wants them, Including Denise who has stood by him and has remained a "lady" throughout this so she could look back on this ordeal and let her daughters see what a classy Mom says and does with their father. Now Charlie decides she a W@ore because she won't let him exploit them on Dateline. someday hopefully when Martin and his wife and Emilio can get him in some kind of wonderful therapeutic facility where he can refocus on the positives in his life, he's remember that he was a borish crude, nasty, sex obssesed Pig, who should never have custody of his children. Thats right Max. tell DADA "bye--bye."
