'The Game' still a winner in second week on BET

January 19, 2011 |  3:22 pm

Thegame "The Game," the former CW series which scored a winning return on BET last week with new episodes, maintained its momentum in Week 2 despite a slight drop in viewership.

The comedy about the women involved with the players of a fictional pro football team attracted 5.9 million viewers on Tuesday, down from last week's viewership of 7.7 million viewers, according to Nielsen. Still, network executives were extremely pleased, particularly because the cable network targeted to African American audiences is making an ambitious move into scripted programming.

The news was even more encouraging for "Let's Stay Together," BET's new original comedy paired with "The Game." That series nabbed 3.5 million viewers, down less than a million from last week's viewership of 4.4 million.
