Charlie Sheen's "episode" really is over: He returns to the small screen in two commercials AdWeek dubs "great," though both of them do poke fun at the "winning" tiger-blood drinker. In the first ad, Sheen touts the fun of house arrest—when you're an actor with a huge house and a Fiat you can drive through it. Then, a DirecTV ad explains how subscribing to the service will somehow keep you from a downward spiral that culminates in an encounter with Sheen at a Turkish bath house. Watch both in the gallery, or click to see which other Chuck Lorre alum will star with Sheen in Anger Management. (More Charlie Sheen stories.)
