debra lee, bet president, says black people aint checking for positive programming.

At a screening for a new BET documentary, someone asked Lee if the network was going to aim for better programming, with Lee stating that, ”Over the 28 years I’ve been at BET, we’ve tried different shows, series and nightly news, and it’s always a matter of what are people going to show up to watch. We started a new show last week called Don’t Sleep! With T.J. Holmes, which is supposed to address these kinds of issues. It’s designed to be a mix of entertainment and news and commentary. We hoped it would have been a Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert-type show.”
Lee then went on to explain that the ratings game is what drives her to continue with content that is less than desirable:
“To be honest, the ratings haven’t been great in the past two weeks (referring to Holmes’ show). Our audience always says they want this kind of programming, but they don’t show up,” Lee said.

yep, i agree with her.  blk ppl always saying they want better but they'd rather watch Zane Sex Chronicles.  That poor guy TJ Holmes was on The Breakfast Club begging folks to watch.

eta:  they don't promote their positive programming enough though.

Debra and whoever came before her has given BET such a bad reputation that people who DO want to see positive programs flip right past the channel to find some substance. 

Don't blame us. Blame your damn self, Debra Lee

We don't just want positive programming. We want good, WELL-WRITTEN programs as well!
 
Stop with the one-dimensional drivel that reinforces age-old stereotypes and archetypes about black people!
