(Newser) – Fox has given the go-ahead for six episodes of a 1-hour variety show hosted by Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon Osbourne, and kids Jack and Kelly. Execs hope the untitled musical and comedy hybrid will be a throwback to 1970s shows like The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour and Donny and Marie, reports Variety.

The show will "tap into what the Osbournes do best, which is be themselves,” said an exec with the show's production company.
