Ozzy Osbourne family start variety show filming with visit to farmer Joe Osborne

November 18, 2008

Ohio (ChattahBox) — As reported in July, Fox Network has given the Osbourne a new six-episode order for a variety show described as a throwback to the heyday of shows like The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. And now the Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy with wife Sharon and kids, Jack and Kelly have started shooting. The new Osbourne show will have musical performances and comedy sketches as well as gameshows, audience participation and out-of-studio taped elements. One idea we know they are moving forward with now, is a segment dubbed “The Osbournes Meet the Osbournes,” (spelling can be variable, however) in which Ozzy and Co. spend time with another Osbourne clan.

We hear now the English Osbourne’s paid a visit to the family of Joe Osborne on their farm in Chillicothe, Ohio, this past week. On Joe’s farm, both families participated in some farming chores, including “mud running.” Then Joe made some lunch for everyone. The main course consisted of deer and squirrel meat. Apparently Sharon and Kelly were a bit squeamish, but Jack and Ozzy gave it a try, of which Joe said, “It shows that they are really ordinary people.”

Next on the agenda was bull riding. Joe demonstrated his bull riding skills, wowing the Osbourne’s, and then Jack decided to give it a try. He apparently did well before getting tossed.

Joe said that hosting the Osbourne’s “was really the experience of a lifetime. A lot of people have the wrong idea about them. They were so polite and were interested in my family as well,” he said.

The bull-riding episode is scheduled to air in February on Fox.
