After seven seasons, A&E has pulled the plug on the popular reality series ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’.  Apparently the KISS Army couldn’t pull together to keep this show afloat.

The show gave an intimate look at the life of KISS rocker Gene Simmons, his now-wife Shannon Tweed, and their kids, Nick and Sophie.  It started out strong and remained that way for several years, even pulling in over 3 million viewers for the season 6 finale, but according to Deadline Hollywood, it fizzled with season 7 this summer, dropping to just 1 million.


A&E is counting on it’s new breakout hits Duck Dynasty (recently renewed for a second season) and Storage Wars to bring in the big numbers now.

Are you sad to see Gene and family go?  Are you watching Duck Dynasty and Storage Wars?  I hate to admit that I have a family member who is addicted to Duck Dynasty, swearing it’s the “funniest show ever ever ever”.
