The BET Awards aired their annual show last night and they should have just called the show “The Carters and Kimye” because that is all the camera cut to for most of the show. The show ran 3 1/2 hours and that is minus the pre-show. Lets’s start with the pre-show. It ran for 2 hours and was just a hot bed of ignorance and
Machine Gun Kelly performing. He’s …. enthusiastic and sadly he’s was one of the better performances on the pre-show.
Rocsi and Terrence. Ughh Why? She looks like a bedazzled hot mess. They said they are leaving 106 & Park. I need that show to end now. Terrence quitting I understand, Rocsi no. Just because you upgraded to Eddie Murphy as a boyfriend doesn’t mean you need to quit your day job because lets be real you really have no job prospects. It seems like the male former hosts of 106 &Park always end up doing bigger and better things than the show but the women always falter. I mean who has seen Julissa or Free in anything since they left the show.

BET will be airing it’s annual awards show tomorrow at 8/7c. The show is being hosted by Samuel L. Jackson. Many performances are in store for the night from Nicki Minaj, Usher, Chris Brown, Cissy Houston, Yolanda Adams, D’Angelo, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Wale, the entire G.O.O.D. Music crew, Y’Anna Crawley, Amber Bullock, Jessica Reedy, Melanie Fiona and 2 Chainz. There is also a Whitney Houston tribute instore for the night that BET’s Stephen Hill believes will bring “closure that people will feel, and … haven’t had elsewhere.”
Oh I CAN’T WAIT FOR TOMORROW. It’s going to be pure comedy. This is the only thing that I look forward to on BET because it is always a HOT MESS and this year will be no different. I just don’t understand how you have a year to put on a production and it always turns out terrible. I mean the sound is always bad, people never know where their markers are or what they are supposed to be saying. All a mess.
Finally these actors have gotten some sense. Two cast members are out on BET’s The Game. Tia Mowry-Hardrict has decided to leave that horrible show that she has been a part of for five seasons . Rumblings started earlier today about Mowry and her onscreen husband (Pooch Hall) leaving the show. Mowry confirmed today via Twitter saying
Just wanted to let all my fans know that I will not be returning to The Game for season 6. It was an incredible run and I had lots of fun along the way. I am looking forward to my upcoming projects…the release of my book #OhBaby [today!], season 2 of @TiaTameraShow on @mystyle premiering in June, and my @ABCFamily movie coming out in December…more to come!” love u so much.
Good about time she left that show. It’s so terrible. So terrible. I don’t know what other projects she’s talking about since that movie already filmed and the reality show is just that a reality show and not a real job. Good for her though. I’m sure some new things will come her way. Too bad she made the decision after pilot season.
As for her costar, Pooch Hall, nothing has been confirmed about him. Last week he confirmed that he and BET were in the middle of contract negotiations. Who knows what’s gonna happen? I kind of hope he and BET come to an agreement though because let’s be real he doesn’t have many prospects. The only thing he can look forward to are straight to DVD blackbuster movies that will air on Saturday afternoons on BET.
So after watching this week’s episode of The Game, I’m officially fine with it. I can take a lot from shows. When they get ridiculous, I can usually stay with them a lot longer than most people can just because I’m keeping hope alive that the writers will turn it all around. That is not the case with this show. I want to say not only has it gotten really ridiculous, there is no turning back from it.
The BET show use to be a promising show on the CW. Born as a spinoff from the highly successful series, Girlfriends, it was started off great. We had a lot new faces (Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez,Pooch Hall) and some old ones (Britney Daniel; Sweet Valley High, White Chicks, Wendy Raquel Robinson; The Steve Harvey Show, and Tia Mowry Hardict; Sister Sister).
The show wasn’t the greatest show but I thought it was pretty good. Then it got cancelled by the CW and I was sad to see it go but whatever. Then BET picked it up and it was definitely done. BET is so cheap. They fired most of the writers of the show and changed the production of it. All of that made for crappy storylines and even crappier acting. One of the original cast members left because they packed shooting of 13 episodes into a couple of months and they would shoot out of order to save money. How is an actor supposed to do their best work when in one scene your character is supposed to be in one place and then switch frame of mind to take an scene from the end of the season when their character is supposed to be in a different place.
After watching this week’s past episode “Keep Your Friends Close and Your Prostitute Closer,” I officially deleted the show off my series records on my DVR. Really Tasha (Wendy Raquel Robinson) so desperate for man that she keeps a prostitute on retainer; Melanie (Tia Mowry Hardict) so desperate to hold on to Derwin (Pooch Hall)she has no friends and nothing else going in her life; Malik (Hosea Chanchez)is kind of just there and the one person who actually isn’t that bad of character on the show, Jason (Coby Bell) has been MIA for like 3 episodes.
Whatever. I gave BET a chance. I should have known better. They have terrible shows and now the only thing I will watch on that channel will be the train wreck they call the BET Awards.
Lots of reality returns tonight as most scripted shows returned last week. Here’s what’s returns and premieres tonight.
Dance Moms (Lifetime) – Season Premiere. I watched an episode of this show because I was forced to by a friend who is obsessed with it. It was of course a train wreck in the same vein of Toddlers and Tiaras. So if you like Toddlers and Tiaras, we can no longer be friends but you will also enjoy this show.
The Game (BET) – Season Premiere. Brittany Daniels (Kelly Pitts) is out and Brandy Norwood is in as Chardonnay (could this not be a more ghetto name, then again this is what this show has become on BET) who gets into a romantic entanglement with Jason Pitts (Coby Bell). I watched the show while it was on the CW and was happy that it got saved but not that it got saved by BET. It has gotten so bad. The characters are former shells of themselves and the writing is TERRIBLE. It reminds me of the even WORSE show Single Ladies that airs on VH1.
Tabitha’s Takeover (BRAVO) – Season Premiere. I love some Tabitha Coffey. This season she’s not only taking over salons, but restaurants, boutiques, etc. Yes! More ways for her to get even snarkier.
Let’s Stay Together (BET) – Season Premiere. Season 2 opens and picks up with dramas surrounding Charles’ and Stacy’s wedding. Here, Charles escapes from an elevator and attempts to head home. Meanwhile, Troy arrives at Tasha’s house, upsetting Jamal. I don’t know anything about these characters. All I know is I watched the pilot, it was terrible and I gave it a pass.
Tracie Ellis Ross (Girlfriends) and Malcolm Jamal Warner (Cosby Show) return to tv tonight with the premiere of their new show Reed Between The Lines. The two play a married professional couple with 3 kids and the ins and outs of them trying to raise a family with busy careers. I want to get excited for this show because this type of show is severely lacking on television with African-American leads but it’s on BET and unfortunately for me that has become synonymous with trash. There is nothing good on that channel. Even The Game which I liked when it was on the CW, got worse when it moved to BET. So right now I can only hope that they have some good enough writers and that they act their butts off so that this show is wonderful. It premieres tonight at 10/9c on BET. Check out a sneak peek of the show.
