'The Game' Ratings Skyrocket On BET

Shockingly Good Ratings

"The Game," a sitcom about pro football players' relationships with women, puttered along in obscurity for three years on the CW network. The season it was canceled, it attracted only 1.9 million viewers an episode. Then it was resurrected with two new episodes last Tuesday on the cable channel BET, which picked up the program and resumed production as part of an effort to add scripted shows to its schedule. The response from BET viewers, Forbes said, was "jaw-dropping." The first two episodes of the new season averaged 7.7 million viewers, making it the most-watched sitcom ever on cable television.
