long autumn nights. Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is back for a second session
of rehab with a new set of star addicts. Gene Simmons Family Jewels continues
with the Simmons clan up to new Hollywood antics. Luke's Parental Advisory
follows a former 2 Live Crew member as he balances fatherhood and his adult
entertainment business. In Coolio's Rules, the Gangsta Paradise rapper tries
to control four kids, make a musical comeback, and balance his business
ventures in front of reality cameras. The new MuchMoreSundays begins Sunday,

During its premiere run on MuchMoreMusic, the first season of Celebrity
Rehab was the second most-watched series across the channel.(*) Now, Celebrity
Rehab's second stint with Dr. Drew Pinsky has a new crop of stars in desperate
need of his medical attention. Those attempting to kick their addictions are
Steven Adler (Guns n Roses), Nikki McKibbon (American Idol), Sean Stewart
(Sons of Hollywood), Amber Smith (model/actress), Rodney King, and Tawny
Kitaen (actress). Gary Busey, who is 13 years sober from his cocaine
addiction, also joins the cast to go through the journey and share his
experiences on the recovery process. The medical attention starts November 2
at 6 p.m. ET. To get a sneak peak of the season, go to
muchmoremusic.com/rehab. And beginning November 3, Celebrity Rehab die-hards
can re-watch all the episodes on the same site.
Gene and his Hollywood family continue their antics on Gene Simmons
Family Jewels, following the lives of the KISS guitarist, his happily
unmarried companion, Shannon Tweed, and their two teenagers Nick and Sophie.
On November 2, tune in at 7:30 p.m ET for one kissable episode. Beginning
November 9, watch two back-to-back episodes every Sunday at 7 and 7:30 p.m.
Luther "Luke" Campbell is best known as the former hype man for 2 Live
Crew, the bawdiest Hip Hop group of the late '80s/early '90s that pioneered
videos with scantily clad women. Now, Luke is a loving father, successful CEO,
and faithful fiancée. Luke's Parental Advisory follows his day-to-day
adventures as he navigates fatherhood with running his adult entertainment
business, and planning a wedding with his straight-laced lawyer fiancée.
Although his life may look like he has surrendered to typical suburbia, Luke
hasn't changed completely and this original bad boy of Hip Hop is still as
nasty as he wants to be. Watch the drama unfold beginning at 8 p.m. ET. To
watch the trailer, go to muchmoremusic.com/luke.
Rap star Coolio was a household name in the mid '90s, when his Grammy(R)
winning song Gangsta's Paradise and his iconic, braided head were inescapable.
Over the years he's continued to produce and perform his music overseas, but
has also dealt with a difficult divorce, and is now a single father to four
teenaged children. In Coolio's Rules, he's poised for a comeback with a new
album, a popular cooking show on the Internet, and his newest venture, a
catering company. It may seem like an odd combination for the street-smart
rapper, but it's one that just might work if everyone plays by Coolio's Rules.
The series gets cooking at 8:30 p.m. ET. For a preview, go to
