The Osbournes debuts tonight.
Calling the show “a reality-based comedy,” MTV debuts The Osbournes tonight at 10:30 ET, immediately following The Real World Chicago. It follows Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon, and their four kids throughout their regular lives. The Chicago Sun-Times Phil Rosenthal says it “isn’t your typical television show” and finds ” something inherently funny in seeing someone who looks like Ozzy reduced to being just like your dad or mine.”
