Charlie Sheen Web Show Watched by 1.2 Million
The debut of Charlie Sheen's Ustream Internet show Sheen's Korner has been watched by more than 1.2 million viewers live and recorded, the company's spokesperson tells USA Today.
More than 100,000 people watched it live Saturday night. (Viewer count fluctuated throughout the broadcast but there were 113,251 hits at one point.)
Wearing a hat and a black t-shirt with a green dollar sign on its front, Sheen and his three cohorts/co-hosts introduced segments such as “Wish They Were Me” and “Weighing in With Rick” (featuring Rick Calamaro, Sheen’s assistant) in a format closely akin to a local access cable show.

Early on during the one hour broadcast, Sheen revealed a new tattoo on his inner left wrist that said "winning," his now-slogan.
During another segment Sheen listed off the people he'd like to be for ten minutes: Colin Farrell, San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian "Fear the Beard" Wilson and Sean Penn, cited for his "when fists were making contact with those loser faces" phase.
Sheen stated during the broadcast that, depending on reaction, the show may return on a daily basis
