I'm sure he knew there was a risk, because black people rarely support their own, but guess he wanted to try anyway.
 
If you don't want to watch, and you have more than one tv in your own, then maybe consider turning it to the channel on that other tv so it wont interfere with your show and the brother can stay on the air.


This is not about blacks not supporting their own, it's about a mismatched demographic. The types of black people who would watch his show aren't the types that watch BET.

When I saw an ad for his show on the BET Awards I wanted to watch, but that's the only time of the year that channel gets played on my tv so I didn't know when it aired. It's likely something similar happened with others.



exactly.  it's not that Black people are unwilling to support but, I had no idea this show was even on the air because I don't watch BET at all.  BET needs to promote.

Based on the quote in the OP it shows that they expected it to fill a niche in the black community for a Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert?  I just don't think the demo of BET are a fan of that brand of humor infused with politics.  When did it air? 11 pm.  Who remembers to tune into that? 

BET has alienated a lot of the (educated, older)Black population by their actions so it's difficult to try to bring in this show to a group of watchers you lost a long time ago.  Didn't they get flack for not airing Coretta Scott King's funeral like other major networks? Didn't they run videos or something instead? this is BET.

Where is the thread from like a year ago that predicted this would happen. We were told to shut up, the show would work, that his move from CNN wasnt career suicide

I'm pretty sure it only makes a difference if you have Neilson box unless something's changed since I last checked.
