From Ozzie & Harriet to Ozzy Osbourne in a mere four decades: This was the path that was beaten to the MTV "reality sitcom" The Osbournes. Per its title, the weekly half-hour series offered tantalizing glimpses within the Beverly Hills mansion occupied by tattoo-festooned rock star Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon, and his teenaged kids Jack and Kelly. Although viewers were not treated to any scenes in which Ozzy chowed down on bats, there was an abundance of perverse delights: Ozzy profanely complaining that his new TV remote didn't work right, the kids bemoaning the "cluelessness" of their parents (so what's unusual about that?), and, best of all, Sharon complaining that the Osbournes' new next-door neighbors were nowhere near as polite or quiet as their previous neighbors, the Pat Boone family. Definitely one of a kind, The Osbournes began its 13-episode run on March 5, 2002.
