Three-Quarters Of Osbourne Family Already Sure That Variety Show Is Going To Tank

Mar 30th, 2009 // 12 Comments

ozzfrog.jpgThe Fox trainwreck Osbournes: Reloaded hasn’t even had its chance to experience a 75% dropoff in ratings from American Idol yet, but already Family Of Darkness patriarch Ozzy Osbourne is disavowing a segment of the show in which the family “hilariously” works the drive-through window at a burger joint: “Not to my liking, to be honest with you. I didn’t get involved in the entertainment business to do fast food restaurants. These people really work… I come from a working-class background. I’ve never forgotten that. I’ve done my share of destroying hotel rooms and all of that stuff. It makes me realize they’re still out there and they’re still doing them jobs.” And paying for Ozzfest tickets! Oh, wait. But Ozzy isn’t the only member of the family whose grin-and-bear-it publicity-tour routine is slipping. After the jump, Kelly and Jack grit their teeth through an interview segment on the always hard-hitting TV Guide Channel. See how long you can make it through without cringing!



For me, it was the 40-second mark, when Jack talks about the time-honored comedic trope of old hags making out with younger guys being a part of the show. I hope they got Cameron Diaz for that bit!

    Bless Ozzy for realizing even through his mental haze just how tasteless such segments almost always are.

    As for the rest of them, I give the floor to Divine Sounds, and their perennial bit of truth, “What People Do For Money”:

    I don’t think I’ll be watching, but it wasn’t the worst idea ever. The US could use one of those UK-type variety/talk shows and the Osbournes do have broad appeal. It’s just not working. Timberlake would have been better.

    @janine: John Mayer apparently has one in the pipeline.

    @Maura Johnston: I know, but mayer is only funny in writing. He’s a douchebag in motion. Timberlake puts out a mildly dickish vibe, but he’s legitimately good at sketch comedy.

  11. How do I say this ... THROWDINI!

    @janine: I don’t know. That one-off comedy show that John Mayer did for vh-1(?) a while back was pretty funny. And he held his own on The Chappelle Show once or twice.

    But yeah, it’d be hard to top Timberlake on of these shows, assuming he had quality writers coming up with the scripts.

    @How do I say this … THROWDINI!: Yeah, I enjoyed that John Mayer comedy thingie. If he can pull off a whole hour of what he did for VH1, on a regular basis, it could work. Big “if”, tho.
