A&E just sent me some cool information about Dee Snider's new show and I wanted to pass along - Allyson

Growing Up Twisted,starring Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider and his family  starts this week on A&E. The seven episode series premieres with two back-to-back half hour episodes on Tuesday, July 27 at 10 PM and 10:30 PM ET/PT.

Here’s the synopsis:

An undeniable presence in the 1980s, Dee Snider is instantly recognizable as the front man of heavy metal band Twisted Sister. But really, he’s just one of six – a regular guy navigating life in the suburbs of New York with his powerhouse wife, Suzette, and their four kids. They are an off-beat but tight-knit family with children who are fiercely independent and strong-willed: Jesse is an aspiring rock musician, husband and new father; Shane is the resident comic; Cody’s a budding filmmaker; and Cheyenne is daddy’s little girl, making the tough transition to teenager. They’re a rock-solid family of unique individuals not afraid to speak their minds. Despite their father’s rock star status, they are just like every other family… only not at all.

“Growing Up Twisted” is produced by Evolution Media (“Real Housewives of Orange County”) for A&E. Dee Snider is executive producer and Ron Starrantino is producer. Executive producers for Evolution are Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart, Kathleen French, Alex Baskin and Kevin Lee. Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant are executive producers for A&E.

Here’s some info on the upcoming shows:

Upcoming episodes -

“Carpet And Drapes” - Tuesday, July 27 at 10 PM ET/PT
Dee decides to get his “Suzette Forever” tattoo redone as a surprise on their 34th anniversary, but is floored to find out that Suzette started the process of removing her “Dee Forever” tattoo. After this ruins their anniversary dinner, Suzette is on a mission to fix things with Dee and designs a new tattoo that she later seductively reveals. Throughout the anniversary plans, the kids realize they’ve gotten to learn a little “too much information” about their parent’s sex life, especially when they find a packet of pink hair dye not intended for their mom’s locks.

“Baptism By Snider” - Tuesday, July 27 at 10:30 PM ET/PT
Twisted Sister lead singer, Dee Snider, is the lone voice of reason when his family packs a whirlwind of activity into one week. Their eldest son, Jesse, wants to have a christening for his daughter, but a touching tribute song he writes for the event opens up old wounds between father and son. Then the family heads to the city for son Shane’s stand-up act, but his brother Cody nearly gets into a fight with a comic that disrespects the Snider clan. Finally, the family needs to pull it all together in time to stage a very touching… and very twisted christening.

This makes me sad for two reasons. First, I thought Dee had more dignity than this and, second, A&E used to stand for Arts and Entertainment. Now they're the home of law and Order reruns and stupid reality shows.

I just watched both episodes tonight as they followed Gene Simmons and I was appalled at the crudeness of this family. Is this what we have become in America that this is entertaining to anyone? Very disrespectful with f bombs flying out the mouths of all mouths and the total lack of respect for the mother to discuss coloring her privates to her sons and impressional daughter. It was just a big ball of discust. At least Gene Simmons has some class!

I can't believe the reviews here. Are you serious? Were you expecting Billy Graham? Maybe you chose the wrong channel. The shows were great! The family was at least true and honest to who they are. Not to mention how close they all are as a family. I was completely impressed and hope that I raise my children to be as creative and grounded as the Snider's! I hope there will be another season.
