PICS: “The Game” Sets Ratings Record and Celebrates Premiere in NYC

13 Jan

Tuesday night, BET’s CEO, Debra Lee, hosted an intimate dinner sponsored by Hennessy Privilege in honor of the premiere of BET’s new original scripted series “The Game.” And there was certainly a lot to honor and celebrate! According to reports, “The Game” set a ratings record for BET, attracting 7.7 million viewers. The ratings were the 2nd highest in the networks history behind The 2009 BET Awards which was broadcast 3 days after Michael Jackson’s death.  To put those numbers in perspective, The Game averaged 2.3 million viewers during Season One on The CW, 2.07 million viewers during Season 2 and 1.68 million viewers during Season 3. (The poor ratings during Season 3 could have been contributed to the fact that CW moved it to a Friday time slot).

TV by the Numbers officially announced that “The Game” ranks as the #1 scripted series in cable history. Now I’ll drink to that!

Check out these pics of the cast and friends at the party. Continue reading
