    I searched and found no topics about this in the TV forum which surprised me. So I guess I'll start one. I usually hate reality tv, most of all mtv's The Real World and Road Rules. However I am definetly going to give this a try. Besides being an incredible musical icon Ozzy along with his family are very interesting characters to say the least. Is anybody else planning on watching this? I believe it starts tomorrow night and knowing mtv it will rerun nonstop before they cancel it at the height of its popularity.

    I'm surprised nobody else seems interested in this. I think this could be a great show. My problem with the real world was always that it wasn't anything like the real world. And even if it was who want to see that. We all live in the real world and know what that is like. I find the idea of seeing inside the life of someone interesting and different fascinating. Also Ozzy is going to be more real than a show that deliberately tries to create conflict and hostility, ie pairing the gay man with the homophobe the racist with the militant black, gee I wonder whats going to happen?

    I'm quite interested actually. I HATE reality tv because like you said, its not real! However Ozzy is the f***ing man and I will watch simply because of that.

    I'm definitely watching this - if it's anything like the MTV Cribs episode with his two kids, this could be the funniest show of the year!

    I've said it before. I'll say it again. I want to live with Ozzy.

    I bet it just kills those on the Right--the people who openly attacked him throughout the 80s--to see that his family apparently functions better than many of their own.

    I hate realty TV and am not a fan of Ozzy's music but the show looks like it will be a hoot. I caught the Cribs episode while killing time waiting to head out for the evening and laughed my ass off. I'm taping it tonight.

    Did anybody catch the promo with tenacious d? I especially enjoyed kyle dressed like Randy Rhodes though I seriously doubt the majority of mtv viewers get the reference. Great stuff.

    Not much happened after Tivo cut off (mine did it too, but I happened to be watching at the time.)

    They did show the preview for next week though, and it looks hilarious!!!

    The Osbourne's dogs start peeing in the house, so Sharon hires a doggie therapist to get them to stop.

    A miffed Ozzy's quote to Sharon: "You don't need a dog therapist.

    You just need to get up in the morning and open the fuckin' door!"

    Ozzy is a comedy goldmine!!

    Actually, Kyle was dressed like Zakk Wylde(sp?), Ozzy's current guitarist. And yes, I'm looking forward to this as well. I've been an Ozzy fan since Sabbath. He is THE metal icon.

    How can I season pass this on TiVo so that I only get every Tuesday's new episode, and not every one of a hundred repeats in between?

    i thought the guy who installed the home theater was pretty much a moron for not showing ozzy how to work the home theater setup. he said he just lets them figure it out themselves... if i was ozzy i would be pissed... "im stuck on the bloody weather channel!"

    Watching Ozzy being a father is the funniest thing I have EVER seen. The whole family is vulgar and strange, but they still love eachother.

    Quality television.
