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: 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

Tia Mowery lands Muscial

 

 

Tia Mowery  is doing the damn thing on the small screen. Not only is she the lead actress in B.E.T.’s The Game but she is a co-star on Style Network’s Tia and Tamera, the reality TV smash with her twin sister Tamera and now she landed a lead role staring opposite Tori Spelling in the Fox Family channel’s musical named  the Mistletones. The musical focus around Mowery not making the Mistletones, a group her mother starred in years ago but Mowery loses her position to Spelling. Mowery starts a rival group to the Mistletones to continue living out her dreams. Read more about Tia’s new role here:http://www.bet.com/content/betcom/news/celebrities/2012/02/02/tia-mowry-lands-lead-in-abc-family-movie-musical.html and tell us what you think about Tia’s new role in the comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Recap: The Game

On last night’s episode of B.E.T’s The Game, Melanie and Tasha continued to try to one up each other. This time it was a fashion show Tasha wanted to have the fashion show with guest star Nene Leaks at the helm and Melanie wanted a more upscale event. Melanie eventually pulled rank as the “Sunbeams” president prompting Tasha to call her nothing more than a baller’s wife. Derwin continued to struggle with his social life within the team as his teammate don’t want to hang with him on a social level and he and Malik are still not on speaking terms. Jason and Chardonnay made the most of their time waiting for the annulment of their marriage by getting to know each other. Jason met Chardonnay’s friends and is dealing with his issues on race. Her friends helped him debunk a lot of the myth’s he had in his head regarding HBCU’s and how they prepare students for the world and workplace. All in all the show had its high points and low points and isn’t nearly as bad as the B.E.T haters make it seem. I will be watching next week. What do you think of last night’s episode?
