You guys have GOT to click on the videos.

Gene refuses to talk marriage and Shannon gets pissed.

Shannon Tweed is great! I love that one where she is the sex therapist and is stalked by some guy and then has a dream where she is walking around naked. Oh wait, that's all of them.
2002-05-01 03:25:21 PM  
the whole thing is farking stupid

*admits to being stupid as well*

You folks understand; we're looking at the latest Survivor-like trend. Now we'll be seeing endless upon endless versions of dysfunctional rich families and watching them.

First the Osbournes, then the Simmons. What's next? The Manson (no plural)? The Gates? The Bushes? Jesus.
2002-05-01 03:28:34 PM  
well this should be interesting.
2002-05-01 03:28:50 PM  
Who Cares?
2002-05-01 03:30:32 PM  
Read the farkin article.... it says Extra did an interview for the weekend... it doesn't say anything about coming up with a "Simmons" series.
2002-05-01 03:32:06 PM  
Richard Simmons? nnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
2002-05-01 03:32:09 PM  
This concept is being run into the ground. It will jump the shark when MTV does a show on Rosie O'Donnell.
2002-05-01 03:33:07 PM  
Nick15: What's next? How about The Simmons 2: Richard.
2002-05-01 03:33:57 PM  
Was anyone else disappointed with last nights show?
2002-05-01 03:35:50 PM  
Shannon Tweed.....yummy.... Lucky bastard Gene!

Honestly i'm surprized that MTV is ending the series with the Osbornes after all the hype it's gotten the channel even if it was aired just to hype the OZFEST this summer . You couldnt pay me enough money to be as farked up as those kids are gonna be when they get older .

Here comes Tim Simmons?
2002-05-01 03:37:31 PM  
am i the only one who doesn't know what 'the osbournes' is? (if it's on mtv then that explains why, i am blessed with not having that channel)
2002-05-01 03:39:13 PM  
How about a series on Richard Simmons AND Rosie O'Donnell together.. then we'd find out for sure just how hard up Americans are for entertainment....
2002-05-01 03:39:41 PM  
No thanks.
2002-05-01 03:39:43 PM  
once any other show comes out that mimics the osbournes, the whole franchise is DEAD.

i think that it's pathetic the simmons are trying to land themselves a series (it's pretty obvious).

let the osbournes alone, they need the cash.
2002-05-01 03:42:54 PM  
Gene Simmons should stick to copying Alice Cooper.
2002-05-01 03:43:31 PM  
the Simmonses-es-es. Rolls right off the tongue!
2002-05-01 03:44:59 PM  
I thought Puff Daddy was in talks to take the reigns. Gawd I hope not. Endless self promotion is not my idea of entertainment. It would be his ego's greatest dream to have that show. Ugh.
2002-05-01 03:45:44 PM  
Gene Simmons....the same guy who sells KISS caskets, endless crap to mindless fans, promises each tour is the last, is ripping off Ozzy in an attempt to cash in? NO!
2002-05-01 03:46:22 PM  
I predict that on the day after her 18th birthday, Kelly Osbourne will appear nude in some magazine somewhere in the world. Or something like that.
2002-05-01 03:46:45 PM  
In other news, mtv will release the Morrisey's. The show's premise will consist of Morrisey whining about celebacy with other fruity guys and running around acting like a big pussy!
2002-05-01 03:46:53 PM  
Gene was recently interviewed on the NPR show "Fresh Air with Terry Gross".
He made a complete arse of himself. He was smug, condescending and arrogant. What's worse, the more he tried to come off as an intellectual, the dumber he sounded. In the end he came off like a complete idiot. He's lucky enough to have found a gimmick that made him a lot of money. Otherewise, he probably would have amounted to nothing other than an average Jewish/American mensch.
He came off like such an imbecile that he refused to give consent for the tapes/transcripts of the show available to the public.
What genital wart.
2002-05-01 03:48:43 PM  
I really thought it was talking about Richard Simmons before I clicked on the link.
2002-05-01 03:52:48 PM  
Diluted: Think of TV as a vast wasteland and The Osbournes as the synaptic ghetto, in which clueless, qualude gobbling, has been rock stars with slurred speech and poor hygiene sit on a septic tank and piss there name in the dirt while the rest of their family seizures in a Tourette Syndrome Fugue state. Questions?

Actually, it's kinda funny. But you're still not missing anything.
2002-05-01 03:53:56 PM  
Do be mistaken.
This is not a series.
It is simply a few segments as part of the show 'Extra'.
I just think the whole thing is HILARIOUS.
Not the show, just the fact that it is there.
In it, Gene say's he allows NO smoking or Drinking in his house. It then cuts to Shannon in the car saying,"This is where I usually light up".
Flame it all you want, that's part of the fun.
Personally, I LOVED IT !!!!

2002-05-01 03:55:55 PM  
I would rather have Shannon than Sharon, but Gene bores me as a human being.
2002-05-01 04:00:41 PM  
For crying out loud...

The USA is a country of 250 million, they have some of the most innovative artists on this planet and this is this the best that they can do?

I guess show content isn't an issue anymore, its how you pitch. In this world you can get anything you want if you get a world class PR company to pitch your ideas.
2002-05-01 04:00:46 PM  

I was disappointed... it definitely wasn't one of the better episodes. Looks like the season finale is next week too.

farkin MTV.
2002-05-01 04:02:49 PM  
am i the only one who doesn't know what 'the osbournes' is?

Why yes you are! But don't worry...I'm the only person in the world who doesn't own a cell phone or pager!
2002-05-01 04:09:41 PM  
wrong-o DoubleGGuy.. i don't have a cell phone or pager either.. you're not special..
2002-05-01 04:14:29 PM  
"MTV's Ozzy Osbourne".. HA!

I think you're right. I heard P Diddy and his family mentioned as the replacement for Ozzy.
2002-05-01 04:24:35 PM  
Extra is nothing more than a rip off of entertainment tonight...and Gene Simmons will not have his own show cause too many of us osbourne fans will riot, lol!
2002-05-01 04:37:16 PM  

Hasn't TV learn its lesson....

Y'know...for the longest time I kept defending Gene Simmons...after all, he was the guy that inspired the 10-year old version of me to pick up a bass guitar, write my own tunes, start a band, etc...

But this is just sad...Gene, you've got enough money...let go, man...let go...
2002-05-01 04:43:52 PM  
Damn, I'm too late with this one:

2002-05-01 04:53:17 PM  
whats a "cell phone"?
2002-05-01 05:30:58 PM  
A cell phone, hell, I don't even have a computer!
2002-05-01 05:58:30 PM  
the osbornes is great. and like anything that comes out of hollywood, and copycats will be artistically boring and unoriginal. I can only hope that it is a commercail failure so that the exec who came up (copied/plagerized) with the idea will get fired.
2002-05-01 06:34:37 PM  
That Terry Gross interview was funny as hell... it showed what a schmuck gene really is.

Plus, that video was pretty damn unfunny.
2002-05-01 06:44:53 PM  
If it wasn't for Ozzy being totally whacked out of his mind half the time and his undeciferable ramblings, the Osbornes would probably suck too.

No Ozzy, no show
