'Osbournes: Reloaded': First Episode Available For ViewingApril 1, 2009
"Osbournes: Reloaded", the new Fox variety-style show starring Ozzy Osbourne, his wife/manager Sharon and their children Jack and Kelly, premiered last night (Tuesday, March 31).
You can now view the first episode in five parts below.
According to The Week, the first six episodes include "a blindfolded audience member duped into kissing a grandmother, a visit from Pam Anderson (complete with wardrobe malfunction) and "Candid Camera"-style video of The Prince of Darkness slinging burgers at a fast-food drive-through.
Regarding the hidden-camera segment of Ozzy at a fast-food drive-through., he told Starpulse.com, "Not to my liking, to be honest with you. I didn't get involved in the entertainment business to do fast food restaurants. These people really work."
He added, "One thing I've learned, I try not to complain too much about people who have to do manual jobs that you would never want to do. Who cleans up, who does dishes? Somebody does that job. I come from a working class background. I've never forgotten that. I've done my share of destroying hotel rooms and all of that stuff. It makes me realize they're still out there and they're still doing them jobs."
"Osbournes Reloaded" also allows Ozzy to get some singing in too. No covers, all Ozzy classics. "I decided, at this point I'll only be doing my own stuff," Ozzy said. "Although, it's maybe two or three songs.
"We're trying to get a good across the table thing and not having the same thing every week. There will be some things that you will see every week but there's a lot of things you won't as well."
Asked why he had agreed to do the new show, Ozzy told Billboard.com, "I'm willing to try anything once ... We are a very dysfunctional family, doing a very dysfunctional show." As for how he had changed since doing "The Osbournes" ended in 2006, he replied, "I put a new suit on this morning"
Only six episodes have been shot. Producers said they would wait and see how the show was received before making any more.
Ozzy told The Pulse of Radio in 2007 that following the completion of "The Osbournes", he wasn't interested in doing another TV show right away. "'The Osbournes' was like an experiment that went way over what I ever expected it to do," he said. "Sharon and I have been offered so much TV stuff, but I can't stand it, you know. I mean, I don't like to see me on TV, I don't like to see me on film or anything, you know."
