What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the BET cable channel, Being Mary Jane revolves around the life of a successful Atlanta TV news anchor, Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union). In season four, when Kara (Lisa Vidal) helps her land a gig as a correspondent on a national morning news show in NYC, Mary Jane makes the move to achieve her lifetime career goal of becoming a national lead anchor. Margaret Avery, Aaron D. Spears, Richard Brooks, BJ Britt Jr., Raven Goodwin, Richard Roundtree, Valarie Pettiford, Chike Okonkwo, and Michael Ealy also star.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of Being Mary Jane is averaging a 0.41 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 973,000 viewers. Compared to last year, season four is down by 44% in the demo and down by 41% in viewers.
Reportedly, BET wanted to shoot seasons four and five back-to-back (probably to save on production costs). Gabrielle Union’s contract, however, stipulated a significant break between seasons. Although the lawsuit was finally settled, there has been no word on if Being Mary Jane has or will be picked up for a fifth season. Still, right now, I expect BET to renew Being Mary Jane for season five, provided all parties can come to terms.
