BET the poster child for 1/2 assed networks
BET should be ashamed of themselves, why can we (Minorities) NOT have a decent channel?
BET shows Videos (Read: The SAME Videos) all fukn day, they just change the name of the shows
The hosts are extra corny…shuckin’ and jivin’, stereotypical and seemingly green and untalented.
Then on Sunday they’ll play church on a loop all day
…now they sprinkle in some half assed reality show knockoffs like they’re breaking new ground:
I don’t wanna see Keyshia Cole’s stank ass
…don’t give a shit about DMX…they’ll do the Vince young thing wrong as well
College Hill? The Ultimate Hustler (Well that was kinda entertaining)
And need I mention the “Black”buster- straight to DVD (and now BET) movies? Can they show Motives and Prison Song a couple more times?
(Atleast they don’t keep showing Carmen: The Hip Hop Oprea anymore)
…gotta save room for all the BET Awards reruns
They had a damn show counting down to a hasbeen/wack rapper going to jail…a damn celebration!?
…maybe I’m buggin; lemme see

So…any given day; 8 Wayans brother shows, 4 Jamie Foxx Shows, 2 Living colors, the parkers and everything else pretty much music related.
The same people that own MTV owns BET but they still treat it like the adopted black kid….if you have to put white people in charge to get some decent programming then do it
It’s like they take whatever MTV is doing cut the quality and production by 70% and slap it on TV…young people eat it up too!
It’s not even the OLD BET…at least it was new, and it was grown up
Video Soul w/ Donnie Simpson
Video Vibrations w/ Alvin Jones the unseen VJ!
The REAL Rap City with the Mayor!
This is what I say…
Shows that SHOULD be on BET:
Flavor of Love
-Like it or not, but it should be on the “Black Entertainment” network
-Why shouldn’t the most powerful woman in showbiz not be on the network?
Puff’s Making the Band
-They’re going to promote whatever he comes up with on BET anyway
America’s Next top Model
-If they’re not Eva, they’ll end up on there as a host of something anyway.
-Because it just should be
Half and Half
-If it’s going to be on TV, why not?
The Tyra Banks show
-A couple of talk shows would give the network credibility…Oprah for the old, Tyra for the young
-He might still be doing the show
Everybody Hates Chris
-Goes without saying
The Bernie Mac Show
-Just makes sense
-That would kill on BET!
-It’s Sticky Finaz from Onyx!
-that AND Barbershop from HBO should be there
-Why the hell not?
…why let all the other networks still the black talent and do whatever they want with it. It would probably keep a lot of our shows from being cancelled
If you’re going to show reruns of old shows how about:
A Different World
In the House
The Richard Prior Show
Sanford and Son
That Damon Wayns show
Edited versions of The Wire
You add in a
Black Soap Opera (Better than Generations)
A game show
A talk show…hell if you HAVE to give Scar Jones a show
A drama ala Soul Food
and a couple of young shows…like a newer Different world or a show set in Atlanta with young black people.
And on Saturdays show Black College football…show the step show and battle of the band competitions
THEN you can have your videos…BUT
1 Count down show (106 & Park)
1 Rap Show (Rap City)
1 Soul show (Think VH1 Soul)
1 New Artist show
Now THAT’S how you make a Black Entertainment Network
BUT until I’m put in power over there LOL, we’ll have to deal with corny/wack/poser hosts…uninspired programming, horrifc production, and stereotype shaping music videos and shows till when turn that shit off.
…TVOne is better (because the have Martin and G Garvin, etc.) but not by much; they need work too…but a lot of people can’t even get the channel…not blog worthy yet.
…just my thoughts, what do I know? Can’t wait till I get off so I can get my Shoulder Lean on (sigh)
