Looks like “wacky” doesn’t work in the daytime:
- The wacky lady’s daytime talker–featuring Ozzy’s missus hosting in-bed interviews–has been axed by the Tribune stations, its main outlet.
Sources close to the production confirmed the cancellation to E! on Thursday.
No official statement has been issued by producers, but without the support of a major TV-station group, the show might as well be airing on local access.
“We haven’t renewed the show,” a Tribune spokesperson told the Chicago Tribune (part of the same corporate family). “We’ve told them we’re not interested.”
….Critics have suggested that Sharon’s in-your-face attitude, foul language and quirky guests just didn’t sit well with daytime TV watchers.
….A new season of The Osbournes kicked off on the music network Tuesday night.
But, as usual, the show will have to play catch up just to keep up with the family’s real-life exploits.
In the premiere episode, Sharon still has a job (though cracks have begun to show) and Ozzy is still a couple of months away from his near-death ATV accident.
….Meanwhile, another Osbourne clan member is trying to make her TV mark without the entire family in tow.
Kelly will make her scripted series debut in an upcoming ABC pilot titled Doing It.
Based on Melvin Burgess’ teen novel, Doing It is about the sexual exploits of three 16-year-old Seattle boys: Dino, Jonathan and Ben.
The reality star-turned-recording artist will play a love interest for Jonathan. [E! online}
No offense, and I think Sharon is quite likeable, but I wish they’d all go away for a while.
