It's a little past 8:30 p.m. on a weekday on the Warner Bros. lot and on the set of his talk show, Rove LA, host Rove McManus has one very important question: "Is any of this show going to make it to the telly?"
His show has already been taping for more than an hour, but it's a fair question. That's because this is the first time the Australian native has to deal with the c-word: censors. Season 2 — which premieres Saturday at midnight/11c on TV Guide Network with guests Russell Brand, Adam Lambert and 30 Rock's Kristen Schaal — marks the first time Rove LA will air new episodes in the U.S. McManus is still figuring out just what he can get away with here in the states.

Gene Simmons on Ugly Betty by Michael Desmond/ABC
Poor, naïve little Amanda. Now that shes convinced her dad is famed KISS rock star Gene Simmons, shes decided not only to compose a song for him, but to publically perform and film it at The Beer Hole (and lets just say this girl isnt exactly what youd call an American Idol). Little does she know that her alleged daddy dearest is in the audience watching the performance. And based on his tongue flailing response, he seems thoroughly impressed. Watch it now! | More online videos
Gene Simmons: Family Jewels
As KISS' bass-playing, fire-breathing demon, Gene Simmons is the embodiment of sex, drugs and rock and roll. But on A&E's Gene Simmons: Family Jewels (Sundays at 9 pm/ET), the occasionally kabuki-faced father of two and partner of Shannon Tweed (don't dare call him a husband) is an iron-fisted paterfamilias and tireless businessman. We asked Simmons to wag his legendary tongue about his nonconformist lifestyle and the success of his series, which was recently renewed for a third season.
TV Guide: To what do you credit this show's success? Gene Simmons: On the surface, there's nothing particularly exciting. People like train wrecks, but as much as we'll try to be
SupernaturalSam's visions are no longer happening in his sleep — he's now having painful premonitions while he's awake. I'm sorry, do I need to start calling him "Cordy"? Cause that's who he's reminding me of. Yes, I admit to closing my eyes a couple of times, most notably when that guy got guillotined. Oh, and then there was the part where this creepy Max dude, through telekinesis, pointed that very sharp knife right at the tip of his step-monster's eye (played by Zelda from Sabrina the Teenage Witch). I don't know about you, but it seems to me that the Dean-centric episodes — while awesome in their own right — are not really furthering anything with the main story arc. The Sam-centric ones do. Just an
Among the new series revealed to be in production at other networks: KISS rocker Gene Simmons, his real-life honey, Playmate Shannon Tweed, and their kids will front Gene Simmons' Family Jewels, a new reality series from A&E, which is also in development on shows centered around Cheers alum George Wendt and champion drag-racer John Force, and USA Network has ordered the comedy-drama Underfunded, starring Reno 911!'s Mather Zickel as a "superagent" for the Canadian Secret Service.
To hear Gene Simmons tell it, he's the sexiest, richest and hardest-working man in show business (sorry, James Brown). And on his current DVD release, Speaking in Tongues, the demon-faced bassist of KISS documents his id-gone-wild lecture tour of Australia. Simmons is also keeping a high TV profile with a guest shot on the new season of Third Watch and a (still-in-discussion) makeover on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Seems like a good time to play a little kiss and tell.
TV Guide Online: On your new DVD, you are honest about your unconventional views about relationships.Gene Simmons: I pretty much tell the truth: I love women. Gene Simmons the public person and Gene Simmons the private person are exactly the same guy. The reason the rags [tabloids] are in existence is because people have Jekyll-and-Hyde lives. I don't.
TVGO: How many women have you been with?Simmons: I'm getting close to 4700. I know that b
