Gene Simmons proposal gives Family Jewels record ratings

Posted on

Gene Simmons Shannon

Tuesday’s season finale of A&E’s Gene Simmons Family Jewels delivered the most-watched episode in the show’s history when the KISS frontman proposed to longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed.

The episode was seen by 3 million viewers and left viewers in a cliffhanger — not revealing Tweed’s answer. It’s pretty rare for any reality show to hit a series high in its sixth season, and the series is billed as the “longest running celebrity family show” on TV. Fans will get the answer when Family Jewels resumes its run on Sept. 6. See video of the proposal here.
