BET’s Being Mary Jane Is Slipping


Gabrielle Union’s Being Mary Jane is having some issues… The ratings for the show are slipping  and BET is having trouble keeping their viewers interested.

According to the LA Times:

BET’s first original scripted drama, “Being Mary Jane,” may be a solid performer for the network, but its initial ratings have not been encouraging. The second episode of the series, which stars Gabrielle Union as a successful cable news personality with a messy personal and family life, attracted 2.8 million viewers Tuesday, according to Nielsen — a drop of more than 15% from the premiere episode, which drew 3.3 million viewers. The debut installment had already dropped from the more than 4 million viewers who tuned in to the show’s movie-length pilot, which aired last May. The series was created by Mara Brock Akil (“The Game”) and is directed by her husband Salim Akil.


Always at a basketball game, but NEVER at the Golden Globes or Oscars but your nose  is ALWAYS high in the air! Priorities boo…. Besides, who will respect a woman that looks desperate…  No one.. That is why you wasn’t chosen for Scandal, because you just don’t have it… D Wade is the only thing keeping you relevant…

    she is playing out her life in that show – you can tell by how personal the script is! I actually love it – but I did think the second episode was a bit of a decline from the first – the movie was anticipated and people wanted that – now it’s like what do you do now.. I just hope she makes it – they only made 7 episodes after the Movie Pilot so hopefully it’ll run through and the ratings will increase. but TV producation does that to bring in the wow factore – wanting people to see that things are coming,, stay tuned – the problem is once you lose an audience, they are gone – so they better get it together – i am looking forward to the Game on 3/4 so either way this goose is cooked baby!
