Charlie Sheen hosted a rambling 50-minute webcast on Saturday night that he later called a "shameful train wreck filled with blind cuddly puppies."
Sheen made the comment on his second show, which went up on UStream at about 10 p.m. Sunday night, March 6, 2011, and lasted about 20 minutes
The first installment of the show attracted more than 100,000 viewers for the live webcast, but that number surged to 1.2 million for recorded viewings by Monday morning, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The figure was quoted by a spokesperson for UStream.
Sheen said on the second show that the problem with the first show was that it wasn’t just Sheen working solo, that he tried to fit himself into a format that didn’t highlight him in his best light.
During his first webcast he said that of all the interviews he’s done lately, his favorite interviewer was NBC’s Jeff Rossen.
Then he said he’d like to have some fun with Rossen and would like to interview him.
"So, Jeff, what was the foam on that first been like? In the promo he blinks and looks down because he’s ashamed by his actions.
"So, Jeff, talk to me about the first Advil. Was it the Advil that led to the Aleve? And after your first bottle of Aleve, over the course, Jesus, of what was it, 7 weeks, when did you know you’d hit rock bottom? What was that moment like?"
One of Sheen’s sidekicks then said, "He was going to the all night CVS for Aleve at 4 in the morning."
And another of Sheen’s sidekicks said, ""He couldn’t Aleve it alone."
Sheen then added, "Sorry Jeff, it’s only because we love you."
Mark Cuban, who is in talks with Sheen about perhaps doing a show for HDNet, and who co-sponsored the webcast, told ESPN.com, "Everybody wants to critique a Web show that got put together in a few hours. That’s not the point. It gave him a chance to be himself and have some fun. The thing I like the most about Charlie is that he just loves to mess with the media. You guys fall hook, line and sinker."
