Finally: An official announcement that The Osbournes is over. Well, after the 10-episode fourth season airs. New episodes will debut on MTV January 17 at 10:30 p.m. ET. We’ve already had other announcements, and conclusions before, but this doesn’t seem to be another fake-out. MTV’s Brian Graden said, “The Osbournes were the first celebrities to let the cameras into their home to film their day to day lives at it happened, and the show has had a huge impact on the larger television landscape. The show’s success is due to the personalities of the first family of rock ‘n’ roll.” He forgot to add, “Being greedy bastards, we refused to kill the show off before it jumped the shark, and so now we’ll air 10 episodes long after everyone stopped caring.”
