Leery was my first reaction when I heard about The Sharon Osbourne show. Already familiar (by word of mouth) with the popular reality show based upon the entire Osbourne family, I was anything but enthused to read that Mother Hen Osbourne would in fact be getting her own show. A talk show with Sharon Osbourne at the helm in control of the subject matter – could this be real? Television would never be the same. Boy was I wrong.
The Sharon Osbourne was in fact a rather entertaining show. I mean come on – how can you not be entertained by the on-camera Botox injections, or the constant flow of guest hosts that seemingly run in and out of the set as if the stage has a revolving door.
And despite each show seeming like a red carpet runaway for Who’s Who in Hollywood – I do believe it was Sharon’s unmistakable down to Earth wit that made this show so remarkable. And what’s not to love about a Hollywood socialite that does not mind sharing with her viewers the latest update on a nip, a tuck, or a shot to shy away the wrinkles? In a domain populated by entertainers that seemingly try to convince us that looking young is just ‘in their genes’, it’s a refreshing change to run across personalities like the easily likable Ms. Osbourne.
Unfortunately The Sharon Osbourne show endured a short run. Of course, unlike most talk shows – this show’s end was welcomed by its host with open arms. Undoubtedly though, I’m sure had the show had a longer life span - Sharon would have definitely gathered a dedicated pool of viewers along the way. Perhaps she might not have been the ever-so-popular Oprah or the ever-helpful Dr. Phil, but without a doubt Sharon would have definitely been the interesting filler in-between.
I didn't even know anything about "the Osbornes" family until they came out with their wild show. They were definitely a crazy bunch. But not in a million years would I ever think to watch another one of their shows, but Sharon was the more sane family member out of the bunch and the most normal looking. So I gave her a chance, and I don't regret it because Sharon was a sweet person to watch on her talk show. She gave aoff a really homely kind of personality. I don't think the network gave her a chance to shine. But she was good in my book. GO HEAD SHARON! DO YO THANG!
