    its funny and real. the family really seems to get along so unlike some people who posted in the first topic thought it copied Ozzy Osbournes show i cant agree with that its different people in a totally different situation.

    Yeah, Family Jewels is different people in a different situation but the format is still a direct swipe from The Osbornes.  I'll give Gene and Shannon credit for raising two seemingly normal, well-adjusted kids.  That's more than you can say for many celebrities.  Unfortunately, it doesn't make for great television which Family Jewels is not.  It's not breathtakingly awful like many reality shows but it's not anywhere near good either.  It just is.  That's about the best I can say for the show.

    I guess every show that's about the life of a music star is going to be accused of ripping off "The Osbournes." What are they supposed to do, not have any more shows about rock stars?

    I thought "Family Jewels" was very funny and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of it.

    No, only if they have their wife and kiddies and their dog in the show too which is what Family Jewels has.  BTW, your suggestion about not having anymore shows about rock stars is pretty good.  I'll agree with it.  Too bad I'm not a TV programmer.

    The show was great. Of course the general idea has been done. That one guy's show ran for several years.

    This show is way better than expected!

    I agree with that! Nick is one of the best things about the show! But over all this is a great show! It is really funny and very entertaining (sp) to watch! And another thing is that they are way better than the ozbornes (sp)! I think most rock star families are anyways!

    But seriously, they are a great family and it is really sweet how everyone gets along! Even my mom likes it!

    I think it's better than the Osbournes in some ways. I'd rather watch Shannon over Sharon Osborune any day. Everytime I watched Ozzy I couldn't understand what the hell he was saying, at least Gene comes across as a bit more understandable. The kids are better looking and seem to have a decent head on their shoulders. It ain't that bad of a show.

    the concept of the show is a copy.

     real? i don't know but i think they know they are being filmed so there might be some sort of act going own.

    I believe that A&E ordered 10 episodes.  Tv.com only lists 7 at the moment, because the titles and airdates for the rest are not available yet.
