Since she has more free time on her hands now that she’s no longer on “The Talk,” Sharon Osbourne is spending more time with her husband, Ozzy Osbourne.
Recently, the former co-host took to Instagram to showcase that she and her rocker husband can still act silly after years of marriage.
In the clip, her followers can see a montage video of her husband during their time on their reality TV show, “The Osbournes.” The show ran from 2002 to 2005. The clip highlights the moments in which the Black Sabbath rock says “what?” and the result is hilarious.
Although Sharon Osbourne’s 2021 got off to a rocky start when she left “The Talk” following a heated on-air debate with her co-hosts, it seems like she’s on the up and up. Unfortunately, however, the same may not be able to be said for “The Talk.”
The long-running talk show recently hit new low ratings in viewership after Osbourne made her departure. However, despite the dip in views, the network renewed the daytime show for a 12th season. The new season will also mark its first without any of the original co-hosts on the set.
Views Plummet on ‘The Talk’ Following Sharon Osbourne’s Exit
As for demographics, during the week of June 7-11, the show also hit a new low with female viewers ages 18 to 54. Per data from Soap Opera Network, “The Talk” was beaten by “The View” when it came to female audiences.
Before Osbourne left the show amid an onslaught of criticism, outlets reported that the Emmy-winning talk show had an average of 1.509 million viewers from September 2020 to March 2021.
However, the show was forced to go on a hiatus after Osbourne got into a heated exchange about racism with co-host Sheryl Underwood. As a result, the show aired four weeks of reruns.
When the show began taping new episodes, it reportedly averaged 1.305 million viewers from April 12 to May 16. Analysts estimated it to be equivalent to losing 204,000 viewers each day.
The controversy began when Osbourne defended Piers Morgan, after he quit Good Morning Britain following his criticism of Meghan Markle’s claims about the Royal family in her interview with Oprah Winfrey. After Osbourne took her leave, CBS released a statement.
“Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk. The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace.”
The statement continued: “We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.”
