Ear on TV: Week of May 21

This week, everybody's favorite dysfunctional reality tv father returns with a new album called Black Rain, and it's reportedly the first he's ever done sober. As a result, it's also the most coherent and focused release from the Prince of Darkness in quite some time. Ozzy hits The Jimmy Kimmel Show two nights in a row, and because he's both rock and reality television royalty, he'll also be getting the interview treatment, which, more often times then not, is more entertaining then his musical performance.

Meanwhile, another famous father hits the talk show circuit this week, as Loudon Wainwright III makes an appearance on Conan in support of his new album Strange Weirdos: Music From & Inspired By The Film Knocked Up (Free AOL album stream.) Wainwright, who's father to Rufus and Martha, was recently tasked by director Judd Apatow (The 40-Year Old Virgin) to both write music for the film Knocked Up and to play the gynecologist. Needless to say, Wainwright has an interesting view of the comedy.
