Charlie Sheen just debuted his new show, "Anger Management," but now it looks like certain TV folk are after him to do even more on the small screen: Nigel Lythgoe, "American Idol" producer, reportedly wants Sheen on board as a judge on the singing competition.

According to TMZ, Lythgoe isn't even sure that he's coming back on, but if he does he'd like to mix it up with new judges, including Sheen. It will also depend, they note, on what other judges are coming back. Producers are still trying to wrangle Jennifer Lopez in again.
