Sharon Osbourne stands in front of a talk show called The Talk with Jeremy Kyle. It happened after she was fired from a US conference program of the same name last year
It’s a no-word… pretty much everyone.
Sharon Osbourne’s new talk show debuted to a warm reception – with just 20,000 viewers tuned in to watch Tuesday’s episode.
The former X Factor judge stood in front of The Talk alongside Jeremy Kyle, on her return to film after coming under criticism from an American panel show – also known as The Talk – last year.
Jeremy’s appearance marks a return to television screens three years after his daytime ITV show went wrong, following the death of a guest who failed a lie-detection test.
But only 44,000 viewers watched the premiere night on Monday, and less than half returned to watch the second season.
TalkTV’s broadcast after Piers Morgan’s show drew more than 200,000 viewers on Tuesday – most of whom turned off ahead of Sharon and Jeremy.
It comes after the Mirror revealed a pilot episode of a show with Jeremy as main host was dropped because guests felt “uncomfortable” sharing a table with him.
Sharon was fired from her role on CBS’s The Talk after a heated debate about racism – watched by 1.5 million people.
After the show aired, her co-stars insisted she made racist comments backstage, which she denied.
After being shot, Sharon said she received death threats, as did her husband Ozzy and even their pet dogs.
