A cable reality show drew series-high ratings this week for its season finale, lifting the channel to an impressive performance, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.
In Tuesday’s sixth-season finale of A&E’s "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," Simmons, a member of the band KISS, proposed to his longtime girlfriend, actress and former Playboy model Shannon Tweed. The episode was the series’ most-watched telecast ever in total viewers, with 3 million, among people 18 to 49 (1.7 million) and in the 25-54 demo (1.9 million).
Because of the strong performance by the finale, A&E was the top network in viewers 25-54 at 10 p.m., the piece adds. "Family Jewels" will return to A&E Sept. 6.
