BATON ROUGE – Following only three weeks and a dwindling audience, A&E announced Monday that "The Governor's Wife" has aired in its entirety.

The network pulled the reality show about former Gov. Edwin Edwards 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.
