As part of the deal, FX set a ratings target for eight of the first 10 episodes of "Anger Management." The show reached the threshold, earning an automatic 90-episode order.

FX says "Anger Management" is cable's highest-rated new comedy series this year, averaging 4.5 million viewers.

FX Networks executive vice president Chuck Saftler says he's confident the producers and cast will be able to produce another 90 episodes during the next two years after quickly turning out the first 10.
