Gene Simmons to judge Burnett's 'Jingles'

Simmon_gene CBS is about to announce that rock 'n' reality star Gene Simmons will be the head judge on Mark Burnett's reality series "Jingles."

The former KISS frontman has gained reality TV fame in recent years on A&E's "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" and during a stint on Burnett's "Celebrity Apprentice."

Simmons will be joined by an "advisory panel" that includes Madison Avenue gurus Linda Kaplan Thaler and Julie Roehm. But Simmons will be the final authority on the show to decide which contestants are eliminated each week.

CBS has pushed "Jingles" (where contestants vie to compose commercial ad tunes) back from its planned premiere date later this month. The show is still moving forward and is expected to join CBS' schedule sometime next season.
