5 Slightly Fictional Reality Shows That Could Save Charlie Sheen's TV Career

There was a brief, fleeting moment Monday morning when it looked like Charlie Sheen would be appearing on Britain's 'Celebrity Big Brother.' Sheen's reps (yes, he still has reps) eventually denied the story, despite a $10 million payday rumored to be attached to the offer.

The whole thing got us thinking about some other ready-made reality show formats that, with some slight tweaks, Sheen could torpedo himself into.

So let's fast-forward a few months and imagine that the roast is over and every network has passed on 'Anger Management.' With his options dwindling, Sheen is searching for a reality TV comeback vehicle. That's where this sad saga has been headed all along, right? Check out our five slightly fictional suggestions after the jump.

+ Keeping Up With the Sheens -- We already know that Charlie's a handful, but what about the rest of the zany Sheen gang? Cameras follow Emilio and Martin as they are publicly shamed by their wayward brother and son. One of the central storylines focuses on whether Martin will decide to legally change his last name back to Estevez.

+ Rock of Sheen -- Prospective groupies vie for Sheen's heart, and a chance to be his next goddess. Goddess candidates will be screened for both herpes and their ability to quote Sheen's own catchphrases. It takes place on a bus, because Charlie's house has been foreclosed on.

+ Sheen Factor -- Charlie hosts a gross-out reality competition closely modeled after 'Fear Factor,' only every challenge involves drinking a different species of animal blood. The losers get their blood drank by a tiger.

+ Sheen's Amazing Race -- Charlie competes against a formidable roster of celebrity partiers to see who can score from the most L.A.-area drug-dealers in a 48-hour period. The winner receives a complementary intervention on A&E's 'Intervention.'

+ Celebrity Psychoanalysis With Dr. Drew -- Dr. Drew says he's quitting 'Celebrity Rehab' after this season. Maybe that opens up some room in his schedule for twice-weekly, one-on-one intensive psychotherapy sessions with Charlie Sheen, to be televised live on national TV. Think 'Good Will Hunting' meets 'The Sopranos' meets 'Finding Sarah: From Royalty to Reality.'
