Ozzy Osbourne Insists New Show Isn’t ‘Sonny And Cher’


October 21, 2008

Ozzy Osbourne’s clan will return to TV on Fox this January for what’s being billed as a variety series. But Ozzy’s not a fan of the “V” word. “The word variety sticks in my throat,” he tells Spinner. “It’s not like we’re Sonny and Cher or something.”

Details on the show have been tight-lipped, but Kelly Osbourne says that viewers shouldn’t expect a lot of big-name guests. “It’s not so much a celebrity-based show — it’s more audience participation,” she says. “We can call up anyone in my mom’s phone book and you would have a great show. But we wanted it to be more than that.”

While Jack Osbourne has said in the past that the family’s hit MTV series “tarnished the public perception of my dad,” Ozzy isn’t worried about this venture. “It’s work,” he says. “I’m hoping for success, but it’s good to have the family back again, working together.”
