Renewals and cancellations for basic cable series

Gene SimmonsLife can be rough in the world of basic cable. Lifetime has announced that comedy Lovespring International and crime drama Angela's Eyes, both of which debuted last summer, will not be returning to the network's line-up. Yes, the world weeps.

But, hey, you can turn that frown upside down because Gene Simmon's Family Jewels is coming back for a sophomore season on A&E. You can expect to see 20 new episodes of the Kiss frontman's wacky family exploits. This all leads me to think of whose family I'd really like to see get a reality television series. We've got Ozzy, Hulk Hogan, Rev. Run, the Gottis, the Carters and the family that is The Girls Next Door. Just floating this by the networks, but how about the Bush twins? We can see them get tossed out of foreign countries by Embassy workers. Or, what about something a little more Tenenbaum? Something with a household of child prodigies. I'll give this a little more thought - see what sticks over at VH1.

How about Ted Haggard and his family, and, for heightened drama, invite the male prostitute that Haggard used to frequent. And maybe a meth lab in the basement.

Sounds like a winner to me.

Gene Simmons Family Jewels is a fabulous show. That the Kiss icon and a playboy playmate can have such a wonderful family and relationship is so worth watching. I've enjoyed every episode and am so glad its returning!
