Tuesday, March 8, 2011: The Game

Having proven that it matters what network a show is on The Game has more than doubled its rating since moving to BET. The Game picked up this mid-season two years after it left off, but without any of the actual narrative that made the show so unpopular to watch before. Instead of trying to be a doctor, Tia Mowry has settled into trying to be a good wife arranging threesomes while everyone else is dealing with the most stereotypical celebrity tropes of rehab and desperate reality TV.

If none of that tempts you to watch then maybe the show's inability to decide if it's a drama or a sitcom might. This wouldn't be real question if it weren't for the obviously canned laughter (it's a single camera show!) during pauses in dialogue whether there was a joke or not. Don't worry though, The Game is still a soap thanks to its exaggerated, and awesome, plots and totally straight line readings by the cast.

It doesn't matter if you have watched any of the show this season (although they are all up at BET's site) you should totally tune in tonight for Tia actually bringing home a lady for the threesome.

The Game airs tonight at 10 on BET.
