UPDATE SUNDAY AM: Last night’s edition of Saturday Night Live hosted by Miley Cyrus with musical guest The Strokes drew a 5.4 metered-market rating, up 8% from the same night last season.
UPDATE 10:40 PM: Added below is the video of tonight’s Saturday Night Live cold open, featuring cast member Bill Hader as Charlie Sheen hosting his own talk show Duh! Winning! Ironically, the skit aired on the East Coast minutes after the end of the premiere episode of Sheen’s new internet show Sheen’s-Korner. Duh! Winning! featured guests John Galliano, Muammar Gaddafi and host Miley Cyrus as Lindsay Lohan.
UPDATE 8:40PM: Word from the East Coast is that Saturday Night Live opened tonight’s broadcast with a skit about Sheen that features host Miley Cyrus as Lindsay Lohan poking fun at the Two and a Half Men star and Tiger Woods. I’ll post the video as soon as it’s available.
PREVIOUS: A new Charlie Sheen show is now a reality but not on TV. The Two and a Half Men star today launched a Web show, Sheen’s-Korner, streaming live on UStream at 7 PM PT. It features Sheen riffing on various subjects joined by a sidekick and one of his “goddesses.” Forty minutes in, the show is still going with no end in sight, with viewership fluctuating around the 100,000 mark. It is a letdown after some pretty great interviews over the past 10 days, proving that Sheen is funnier in small dozes and produces sharper zingers when answering questions. (Or maybe the Charlie Sheen drug he says he is on is simply wearing off?) The broadcast was labeled as “premiere episode of Sheen’s-Korner” with no schedule provided for future episodes. (It’s the same title Sheen’s nonexistent HBO show was supposed to have.) The show’s slogan? “You’re either in Sheen’s-Korner or you’re with the trolls.”
