After trying with limited success in the talk show world in the U.S., Sharon Osbourne has finally broken through overseas.

Sharon's new talk show on England's ITV1 shot to first place in it's debut, with an average of 1.9 million viewers, peaking with 2.1 million. Afternoon chat rivals Richard and Judy averaged 1.6 million viewers. For her first episode, Sharon sat down with Penny Lancaster and "Coronation Street" star Debra Stephenson.

You may remember Sharon's talk show on this side of the pond, "The Sharon Osbourne Show." It lasted just one season.
