Martin Sheen has revealed that he had a "wonderful" experience on his son Charlie Sheen's TV show Anger Management.

The 71-year-old played Charlie's screen dad on the new FX series, which premiered on US screens last week.

"I had a wonderful time. They're a great bunch and they just made it a lot of fun," said the actor.

The show's debut on June 28 had record-breaking ratings, becoming the most-watched scripted comedy broadcast in cable history, excluding children's programming.

The debut managed to attract 5.47 million viewers, while a second episode later that evening averaged a total of 5.74 million viewers.

Martin currently stars in The Amazing Spider-Man as Uncle Ben Parker opposite Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, and revealed he is up for reprising the big-screen role.

"I'd do it again if they had a prequel," he said.
