Edwards reality show ends its run on A&E

BATON ROUGE (AP) — After three weeks and a dwindling viewership, the fairy tale appears to be over for former Gov. Edwin Edwards’ reality show.
A&E announced Monday that “The Governor’s Wife” has aired in its entirety.
The network yanked the show from its Sunday night time slot this weekend after the show lost tens of thousands of viewers.
Episodes chronicling the former governor’s release from parole and the birth of his son Eli aired in a block of back-to-back shows at the same time as Sunday morning church services.
Edwards’ wife, Trina, and the show’s creator, Shaun Sanghani, said “The Governor’s Wife” still could have a future chronicling the former governor’s post-prison life with his daughters in their 60s, decades-younger wife, stepsons and newborn baby.
They declined to elaborate.
