Tia and Tamera Season 2

Our favorite twins Tia and Tamara Mowry are brining their hit reality TV show back to Style Network this June. The show which is hold the record for viewers on Style Network returns this June. The show has done wonders for the twins who are becoming best know for Sister, Sister reruns as their careers are making a return. The pair started their own production company Twilight Productions which produces the show and Lifetime movie Double Wedding . Back in demand the duo were recently signed to United Artist so I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of them.

In Persuit of Happiness?

In Black America we love a good march, a good complaint about how we are misrepresented and then when we get what we want we let it fall by the wayside. When the CW canceled  The Game shortly after canceling Girlfriends we were up in an outrage. We didn’t get to say goodbye, we noted how they had similar ratings to other shows on the network but they were not canceled like Gossip Girls and Smallville but we knew why The Game was canceled. We have been through this all too many times before losing a good show due to ratings. We want more of “us” on TV, we want to have good characters with good storylines, we want to be shown in a good light. Well BET stepped up and answered the call tired of criticism about their programming BET got rid of the superfluous rap shows and began to invest in original programming. First on the channel’s list was bringing back The Game. Well since the show has come back to TV all we have done is complained, complained about it being on BET, complained about the storylines, the acting, the everything. We are so busy complaining we don’t release how big a moment this was for us. Mainstream TV talks about The Game all the time, the ratings were through the roof, BET made a ton of money on advertisement and it has allowed us to put the spotlight on our talent. Let’s Stay Together, Reed Between the Lines and other shows are in the pipeline and A list talent are lining up at BET to star and produce shows. So the question remains what the hell are you so angry for. If you don’t like the storylines then complain to the writing staff on twitter and Facebook but stop with all the hating. The Game’ s success on BET is directly responsible for Laz Alonzo and Tracy Ellis Ross being snapped up by NBC for pilots. While I will be the first to admit the writing staff for The Game really needs to step it up, I am also proud of the success it has seen and more importantly ushering a new era for Black entertainment.

Recap:Let’s Stay Together

On last night’s episode of Let’s Stay Together Charles gets sick and wants Stacy to ditch her patients and stay home to take care of him the way a wife should. When Stacy chooses to go to work Charles calls his mother Delores played by the fabulous, Jackie’ Harry, she makes Stacy feel bad for not taking care of Charles and prompts her to call out the following day . When Stacy is taking care of Charles the following day she finds out Charles is no longer sick but wanted her to stay home to find out if she cared. Stacy went through a laundry list of how she shows Charles she cares and the couple enjoyed their day off. Stacy found herself with Charles cold and had to be taken care of by Mama Delores. Troy continues to manipulate Jamal and Tasha with his vast cash supply. After hiring Jamal and hanging out with him he offers Jamal a raise and promotion to open up the LA branch of his business. When Jamal was taking care of the baby it became clear his   aim is to get Tasha back. I have to say I enjoyed last nights episode and cannot wait to see what happens next week.

Recap: The Game

 

On last nights episode of The Game Malik had to sell his mammoth mansion which was his dream home as child to curb his spending during the lockout and his stalled career. Melanie and Tasha continued the petty beef they have taking it to a bar trying to out tip each other with a waiter named Javier. I am really hoping they move past this next week as the back and forth has worn out it welcome for me. Jason was blindsided as his show added a blonde co-host. Jason ran to his staple of reality his wife Chardonnay, the neck rolling,sass mouthed, weave wearing brown girl Jason accidently married. This story-line  was cute at first but it is getting boring real fast. I am hoping next week the action picks up and the show begins to move forward, there seems to be writing block over at BET. Tell me what you think about last night’s episode in the comments or online at @mediamyxx @akireshenri

B.E.T banned Stupid Hoe

Nicki Minaj”s new video Stupid Hoe reportedly has been banned from the network. The network think it is too raunchy and with the word hoe being used over and over too much for its station. I am not surprised nor upset by the move as the song and video is just awful and clearly by its current status on Billboard so do you. Nicki’s sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded was delayed until March or April. You of course can watch the video on Vevo to see what the fuss if about and let us know what you think hit us up in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri  and read about the video banning over at TMZ.com
