Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The premier episode of MTV's phenomenally successful reality sitcom finds the metal madman and his family moving into a palatial estate in Beverly Hills. As Ozzy struggles to use a particularly complex remote control and reluctantly prepares for an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, kids Jack and Kelly display their unique brand of full-contact, love-hate sibling rivalry. Meanwhile, the Osbournes' security guard, Michael, gets up close and personal with the viewers by offering an exclusive look at his blood clot. As the episode draws to a close, Ozzy's wife Sharon attempts to bring a little levity to the unhinged household by offering some motherly advice to the feuding siblings. Viewed by 3.2 million households and grabbing an impressive 2.8 rating, this episode of The Osbournes was at the time the highest rated premier in MTV's history.
