We do indeed finally have a launch date for Charlie Sheen's second act, "Anger Management."  

The first two half-hours will air June 28 at 9. That's a Thursday, by the way. "Louie" is also back that night, at 10:30, as is "Wilfred," at 10. So, yup, a big night indeed for FX.

But here is the most intriguing part of the summer schedule announcement: That Russell Brand late night show that I know next to nothing about also arrives then. Here's what FX has to say about "Strangely Uplifting":

"The series features Brand’s unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture. The network has ordered six half-hour installments of the series that will be shot in front of a live audience. The format will draw heavily on Brand's interaction with that audience. The series is produced by FX Productions in association with Branded Films and Dakota Films."
