Why must the media find it news to report on Charlie Sheen ( "Charlie Sheen leaves rehab, reportedly receiving treatment at home," Feb. 1). I really don't think the general public is interested in his escapades of women, drugs and alcohol. He is a most despicable human being and certainly does not deserve the news coverage on a daily basis. He is a sick individual, and I really don't care if he is the highest paid actor on TV. Let it go. He is not worth any more coverage. Vicki Chambers, Lutherville

I don't like Charlie Sheen, and I thought the online mania over him last year after he was fired by CBS was a sign from God that American culture was in a very bad place and needed divine intervention to be saved. Given the political landscape these days, I'm not feeling any better about American culture, but I like Sheen's new FX sitcom "Anger Management"  a lot more than I thought I would. "Not only do I like it, as in, "Gee, that was a lot more fun to watch than 95 percent of the braindead network sitcoms I screen," I am impressed by it, as in, "Yikes, this thing actually looks like it might have something to say about American life today.

What's a social media ambassador, you ask? That's a good question, because Charlie Sheen will be filling that role for WWE's historic 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw . The star of Anger Management, a new comedy on FX, will shell out commentary and insight during the course of the night to his 7.5 million Twitter followers. Using the hashtag #SheenGetsRaw, fans will be able to ask the actor questions during the show, which will be broadcast live on USA on July 23. It could be a ploy to attract new fans to the program, especially on this historic anniversary show.

Charlie Sheen was clearly the man of the year. You'll recall that 2011 began with the oafish actor celebrating his own narcotic and sexual crapulence like a victorious gladiator working the crowds. He was egged on by a media with as much decency as the cons on the top tiers of the prison who chant "fresh fish" as the new inmates walk into general pop, their eyes stinging from delousing powder. Mr. Sheen succeeded at turning his own debasement into a national pseudo-event by calling the very definition of losing "winning.

1. Rebecca Black Today is not Friday, but Rebecca Black's unintentional parody of modern pop still (unfortunately) takes the No. 1 spot for 2011 viral hits. The original video racked up disproportionately more dislikes than likes, but its so-bad-it's-genuinely-appalling appeal earned it a Teen Choice award, an appearance for Black in a Katy Perry video and a cover by Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, the Roots AND Taylor Hicks (with an assist from the Knicks City Dancers). 2. Charlie Sheen Sheen's rant on the Feb. 24 episode of "The Alex Jones Show" started the very public destruction of his working relationship with "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre and was the first of numerous interviews that popularized catchphrases we'd rather forget.

The good folks at Public Policy Polling decided to use their valuable time conducting a presidential poll including Charlie Sheen . Yes, he of Adonis DNA and tiger blood.  Even though it's been widely misreported that Sheen won matchups against both President Barack Obama and Sarah Palin, that's not true. He lost soundly. "Sheen's unpopularity is pretty universal across party lines," the pollsters concluded. (Which is shocking to anyone following his Twitter feed.

Charlie Sheen made news again Thursday. But this time, it wasn't about drugs, sex or his pending divorce -- well, maybe a little sex. His Two and a Half Men character, Charlie Harper, isn't exactly the most celibate cat on the small screen, but playing the cad landed Sheen his first-ever Emmy nomination, for lead actor in a comedy series. His top-rated, 3-year-old series also got its first nomination as best comedy, and costar Jon Cryer received his first nod for supporting actor. The conventional CBS sitcom about Harper, a decadent bachelor whose life changes when his neurotic and repressed brother Alan (Cryer)

Those of us with self-esteem issues — and we are legion — could learn a thing or two from Charlie Sheen and Moammar Gadhafi. The embattled American actor and the embattled Libyan strongman granted interviews this week to let the world know how much their people love them and how wrong everybody else is about them. The internet and magazines were rife with comparisons of the talkative duo. During his interview, Sheen demanded a $1 million raise for each of the remaining eight episodes of "Two and a Half Men," his TV show that CBS has announced it will not film because of his outrageous behavior.
