Osbournes: Reloaded Shoots Itself in the Head


I haven’t gotten around to watching the new Osbournes variety show yet (not that I was ever planning to), but the early reviews are god-awful.

Says Entertainment Weekly:

On The Osbournes: Reloaded, Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly, and Jack were just pathetic. No wonder Fox kept chopping this proposed hour-long “variety show” into an ever-smaller size before airing it. The network is supposed to air five more Reloadeds. Don’t hold your breath. Or maybe, do hold your breath: The stink of this show will last a long time.

Thus far, Fox affiliates in Panama City, Milwaukee, Cincinatti, Knoxville, Kansas City and Utah have elected to either not carry the show or air it after midnight rather than in its suggested post-Idol time slot.

And from the reviews, it sounds like these affiliates aren’t being prudish, the show is just REALLY awful and offensive. But not in a creative and envelope-pushing way, just plain old gross for the sake of being gross.

Fox was originally going to air five more episodes of the show in the fall, but somehow I doubt that’s going to happen at this point. Heads are gonna roll for this at Fox.

So is it over now? Is the Osbournes thing finally over now? Has our national love affair with these people at last signed the divorce papers? Can we, America, please be the strong ones in this relationship, and end it once and for all, so that the Osbournes can heal and move on?
