"THE OSBOURNES" One Of 10 Worst Shows On Cable: Report

A TV watchdog group denounced The Osbournes as one of the ten "worst" shows on cable television in a new report released yesterday, according to Billboard.

MTV programs like The Osbournes and The Real World comprise half of the Parents Television Council's (PTC) "Worst" list, which is rounded out by offerings on FX, TNN, and Comedy Central.

L. Brent Bozell III, founder and president of the PTC, feels that MTV's plethora of salacious programming targeted at teen viewers can no longer be ignored. "One of the things we're looking at is making a much bigger deal about MTV," he said. "Parents don't watch MTV, and I suspect they don't know what's on it."

Other MTV shows on the PTC's list are Undressed, Celebrity Deathmatch and The Andy Dick Show. The other spots are filled by FX's The Shield, which topped the list, TNT's Witchblade, TNN's WWE Raw Is War, and two series from Comedy Central: South Park and The Man Show. MTV declined comment on the PTC report until it could be reviewed.
