Is NBC's new reality show "Stars Earn Stripes" worth watching? Jack Osbourne doesn't think so.

According to TMZ
, Osbourne isn't harboring any resentment over allegedly being fired from "Stars Earn Stripes" due to a multiple sclerosis diagnosis. "The bright side is the show will probably suck anyway," he said.

"Stars Earn Stripes," which premieres Monday, Aug. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, centers on celebrities competing in physical challenges based on U.S. military training regimens.

According to NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, the network was only looking out for Osbourne when they gave him the boot because "Stars Earn Stripes" requires "dangerous water stunts, strenuous physical activity, and uses live ammunition," he said in a statement.

Sharon Osbourne doesn't hold the same opinion, however. The former "America's Got Talent" judge abruptly left the series in July because she no longer wanted to work with NBC. “I just can’t be fake," she explained. "It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled."

"Stars Earn Stripes" premieres on Mon., Aug. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
