'Osbournes' Premiere Draws 6.6 Million

“The Osbournes,” the reality series about rocker Ozzy Osbourne’s unorthodox family and home life, drew 6.6 million viewers in its second-season premiere, MTV said Wednesday.

Tuesday’s ratings were up 84 percent compared to the first season’s premiere, and viewership rivaled that of the highest-rated episode last season, the music channel said.

“‘The Osbournes’ juggernaut shows little signs of slowing down,” MTV programming president Brian Graden said in a statement.

Last year, the show became an unexpected hit and the highest-rated show in MTV’s 21-year history.

This season’s content is decidedly different, as the family copes with its newfound celebrity and Ozzy’s wife, Sharon, battles colon cancer.
