BET Continues To Dominate Primetime w/ 'Real Husbands' & 'Second Generation Wayans' Finales
5
Real husbands
This season, Real Husbands Of Hollywood is the #1 sitcom on cable among adults 18-49; and Second Generation Wayans is the #2 new sitcom on cable among adults 18-49.

Who'da thunk it? Not I.


More original series hits for BET; and The Game (which has been the network's crown jewel) hasn't even returned for its new (6th) season yet (March 26).

And let's not forget what they have coming up - like Being Mary Jane, with Gabrielle Union, Omari Hardwick, and other names you all know well.

But what happened to T.J. Holmes' previously-downsized news/commentary program Don't Sleep though? It hasn't returned since the Christmas/New Year's holiday break. Are we to assume it's dead?


The full details follow via press release from BET below:
