24 September is Heritage Day, and while most people will be out celebrating the holiday with either family or around a braai, some people might prefer to stay indoors.

For those staying in, we have some good news. A bumper line-up of news shows will premiere on DStv on Heritage Day.

Here is a look at what is in store for you:

Anger Management, Comedy Central (122), 22:25

Charlie Sheen returns to television with his much acclaimed comedy Anger Management.

Sheen stars as "Charlie", a non-traditional therapist specialising in anger management. He has a successful private practice, holding sessions with his group of primary patient regulars each week. Upon this, he also has to perform pro bono counselling for an inmate group at a state prison.

His life is even furthermore complicated by his relationships with his therapist/best friend (Selma Blair) and ex-wife (Shawnee Smith) whose positive outlook, but poor choice in men, frustrates Charlie.

Catch two back-to-back episodes of the show on Comedy Central at 22:25.
