IMO when they stopped showcasing lesser known music and went entirely to a formulaic Viacom set up, it was the beginning of the end. I remember when BET used to have various segments such as Caribbean Rhythms, etc. etc. It was nice to hear some music that wasn't the top 40 set, but was still quality. But seriously around 2002 - 2004 is when they really did a hatchet job on the network to make it Viacom friendly. And ever since then, it's been treated like the red headed step child of the Viacom Family. Nickelodeon gets more funding than BET.

The Walking Dead is coming on soon. There is so much that they could do. I'd love to see Supernatural, Zombie apocalypse or CSI type show. Heck LL is not on bet. She is just using an excuse saying we won't watch. Heifer put the good shows on and then talk.

BET needs to find good black writers.
 
They could def make bank if they had quality programming.
Reed Between the Lines was boring
The Game was whack
Real House Husbands of Hollywood is ridiculous.
The new comicview is not funny
 
 
American Gangster was a good show.
Hell they could make some black author books into mini series
 
there's a lot of things that BET could do to make their station better but they wont do it

Oh that's a good one. I like the one about black author to screen series. Heck that is Lifetime's bread and butter! She is full of crap and she knows it. She makes crap but can't blame anyone but herself. She's still cashing those checks.

As a sports Head... I love wathching NBA TV
Every sports analysis is a brother and they always clown during the highlights..

Anytime you put Chris Webber with Steve Smith or Shaq... its pure sillyness.
BET could easily take the gist of what Charles and Kenny have done with TNT 

and build off of that.....

You are so right oodles. Men and women both love sports. That is not a black thing either. If she is so concerned about appealing to the masses. She has not even put her thinking cap on!

The only way she can change that is by changing the mindset of black people in general. And clearly, there is no hope in that. Black people embrace slave like behavior. Unfortunately, it has become innate and part of our psyche. I doubt she's willing to give up her luxe living to fix it.

Agreed...but BET is cheap and the licensing rights for sports show is NOT cheap whether it's just clip play back or actually showing an entire game. So, they're not going to do that - although it would be smart and attract tons of viewers. BET is using a shoe string budget and doing a piss poor job of playing "keeping up with the jones'".
