Tuesday’s night season premiere of The Game not only had Twitter on fire, but also was a big ratings win for BET.
The season five debut garnered 5.3 million viewers, down from last year’s record-setting 7.7 million, but still proves BET made the right decision when it picked up the show last year.
Fans of The Game are still obsessed with the show and were on hand to see what type of drama Melanie, Derwin, Malik, Tasha, and Jason would get into. And from the looks of the premiere episode, it’ll be one interesting season.
With major networks still ignoring black audiences, BET hopes viewers will continue to flock to its scripted shows The Game, Let’s Stay Together, and Reed Between the Lines.
