LONDON – English TV viewers — meet Ozzy Osbourne.
The Osbournes will finally make its debut on British television this Sunday, premiering on MTV's UK and Irish networks after a contractual squabble was settled.
The premiere of The Osbournes in the UK comes one day after Osbourne will play in England's Donington Park in Leicestershire as part of his annual "Ozzfest" heavy metal tour.
According to BBC News, English TV networks Channel 4, ITV and Channel 5 are all interested in snagging rights to The Osbournes once it airs on MTV — and for good reason.
Since its premiere, The Osbournes has become the highest-rated show in MTV history, averaging as many as 10 million viewers, an exorbitant number for a cable network.
The show, which is expected to be renewed for a second season, follows the behind-the-scenes antics of British-born Osbourne, wife Sharon, daughter Kelly and son Jack in their plush Beverly Hills mansion.
Since the show's initial success, other celebrities such as Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, David Lee Roth, Cybill Shepherd and Motley Crue rocker Tommy Lee have all expressed interest in doing their own reality shows focusing on their lives.
Lee, in fact, told Access Hollywood that he's close to a deal with a "major network" to do a show.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, who's also his manager, are reportedly demanding $20 million for a two-season deal to continue doing The Osbournes.
