'Sharon Osbourne Show' Lays Off Employees Despite 'Solid' Ratings

Despite solid ratings, "The Sharon Osborne Show" has just laid off 20 people, including music booker (and former "Rockline" producer/music scribe) Katherine Turman, according to Hits Daily Double.

Although it's a hardly a runaway success, "The Sharon Osborne Show" appears to be finding an audience with the young MTV viewers who were big fans of "The Osbournes". Jim Paratore — who produces the show at Warner Bros. Domestic Television — said the show has found a sweet spot with women aged 18-34, a demographic segment that advertisers love deeply.
