Canadian network to air 'The Osbournes' UNCENSORED
By Reality TV World staff, 07/11/2002
Zap2It.com reports that Canadian television network CTV has sublicensed the first two seasons of "The Osbournes" from MTV Canada and plans to air them uncensored on broadcast television.
The show will air at 10 p.m., hopefully late enough to keep younger viewers from catching the Osbourne's favorite phrases. CTV also plans to run strong advisories during the show to warn viewers about he language, as it has does with "The Sopranos."
Susanne Boyce, president of programming for the network, expects that "some viewers will be surprised by how the Osbournes talk to each other," but adds, "coarse language is part of their world. It's used as they really use it. The heart of 'The Osbournes' is that they're not plastic. Their fights, their love for each other -- and their language -- is real."
