A&E shines up more ‘Jewels’

Cable network reups Simmons reality show

A&E has greenlit a supersized second season of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.”

Cabler has begun production on 20 half-hour episodes for a premiere sometime in 2007.

A&E had ordered a 13-episode first season.

“Family Jewels” delivered an average 1.3 million viewers per episode. Show also improved its Monday-at-10 timeslot by 56% among adults 18-49 (766,000) and 45% among adults 25-54 (742,000) vs. the previous year.

Skein also ranks as one of A&E’s youngest-skewing shows with a median age of 39.

Second-season antics — which will continue to revolve around Simmons, longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed and their two kids — are sure to shock, Simmons told Daily Variety.

“People’s jaws will drop,” he said. Show’s appeal is strong because “everyone wishes they had this family. Every guy wishes he was me. It shows how you can be happy.”

Simmons, Leslie Greif, Adam Reed, Nancy Dubuc, Robert Sharenow and Didi O’Hearn are exec producers. The Greif Co./A Day With and the Gene Simmons Co. produce.
