Florida TV station refuses to air Osbourne show
Tuesday 31 March 2009
Some northern Florida TV viewers won't be seeing a new variety show hosted by Ozzy Osbourne and his family.
Panama City Fox affiliate WPGX won't air 'Osbournes: Reloaded' today, The News Herald reported.
After viewing a six-minute preview, General Manager David Cavileer says the "inappropriate" content and profanity that was obvious — despite the bleeping — made him uncomfortable having the show follow singing competition 'American Idol,' a series that's very popular with a younger audience.
Cavileer says he would have aired the Osbournes' show after 10pm, but the 8.20pm scheduled start time was too early.
Instead, he'll air an episode of 'The Simpsons.'
A Fox Broadcasting Co. spokesman says the show was thoroughly vetted, but any affiliate can pre-empt a programme it deems inappropriate for its market.
