His phrase may be “winning.” But, judging by the impromptu hour-long webcast on Saturday night, Charlie Sheen may want to change that to “slipping.” I’ll admit: I didn’t watch the whole thing. And, judging by all the Tweets from viewers of the first fifteen minutes, neither did anyone else! Too bad it wasn’t as funny as SNL’s spoof that same night.

Charlie Sheen hit the Internet on Saturday evening, hosting his own talk show – “Sheen’s Korner” – on celebrity favorite streaming site, Ustream.
“From my big beautiful warlock brain, welcome to ‘Sheen’s Korner,’” Sheen began as he welcomed viewers to his new live streaming video show, filmed at his Sherman Oaks, Calif., home on Saturday night. “You’re either in my corner, or you’re with the trolls.”
Surrounded by pals and only one of his “goddesses,” Sheen spent 50 minutes sharing his wisdom regarding various subjects for an online audience of over 100,000 viewers (at its peak) on Saturday night, which he dedicated to his five children while — drinking from a child’s blue sippy cup.
“Big shout out to my children – to Sandra, Sam, Lola, Bob and Max. Daddy loves you, and if you’re watching, tell Mommy to leave the room – it’s on,” he said.
The “Two and a Half Men” star donned a black T-shirt emblazoned with a bright green dollar sign and a gray fedora for the impromptu broadcast, and seemed to struggle to find topics to discuss at times.
The actor’s ramblings included montages of various “winning” situations and “winners,” including a slideshow of photographs depicting cats “winning” against dogs. He also urged “winning” voters to open the windows of their homes and chant with him, while he and his posse repeatedly yelled “winning!”
Sheen also revealed his new ink – a tattoo on his inner left wrist bearing his new catchphrase.
The actor wiped his face with a cloth and blew his nose while explaining to viewers that he has “the mind of a 10,000-year-old man and the boogers of a 7-year-old,” before ending the session by thanking viewers for joining him on his “maiden madcap experiment.”
Coincidentally, NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” opened Saturday night’s show with a Sheen show spoof titled, “DUH! WINNING!.”
Castmember Bill Hader gave a spot-on impression of the popular actor, while host Miley Cyrus joined the fake “SNL” talk show as “winner” Lindsay Lohan, and “SNL” newcomer Taran Killam appeared as former Dior couure designer, John Galliano.
