The return of The Game was strong enough to win its timeslot in the demo on cable and the broadcast networks as well. It was down from last season’s opener (7.7 million) but this was still very impressive.

Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

What do you think? Do you like The Game TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled after this season or renewed?

I rlly love the Game and all of the actors.. but I don’t like wat BET has done with it.. when the CW had The Game.. it was better! I’m goin to continue watching it because I love seeing Pooch on tv.. but it is gettin worse.


Guerda May 15, 2012 at 11:00 pm

I agree. The Game’s not the same anymore.


ThaCritic April 9, 2012 at 6:09 pm

The Game isn’t even remotely about football anymore. And I hear it’s a spinoff of “Girlfriends” but I don’t see the connection. But if it’s renewed, which it will be, then four words: more comedy, less drama.


T2U June 2, 2012 at 2:31 pm

The Game a spinoff from Girlfriends? Really? When? Where? How?


admin June 2, 2012 at 6:51 pm

T2U » An episode from April 2006 called “The Game” was a backdoor pilot for The Game.


lilkunta March 22, 2012 at 11:32 pm

notice that every week ratings decrease? TG is not good. I watched ep 5 1 then stopped.
the show is bufoonery, negative, stereotypical.
Kelly needs to return.


Tha Critic March 8, 2012 at 11:24 am

I’m not so sure about “The Game” anymore. Derwin and Melanie were originally the focus, but now they’re more like supporting characters. Plus, the character of Melanie is too stuck-up now. And Tasha’s man problems are getting repetitive. Right now Tee-Tee and Jason are my favorite characters.The tone isn’t as drama-heavy as season 4, and that’s a good thing but I just haven’t been that impressed so far.


Carolyn Jones March 8, 2012 at 1:32 am

I’m not happy with the show this season. We need Kelly back and a friendship bond. This season has shown that black people has some serious problem. If it did not get a new season I will not be disappointed. Please people we need to be seen in a more positive manner.


Jan January 29, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I love it I watch it on the weekend. Because of school. Please don’t cancel.


Craig January 28, 2012 at 9:43 pm

During the first three weeks they are bleeding serious numbers of viewers. Did this happen in season 4, and what was the average number of viewers in season 4?


Tha Critic January 19, 2012 at 7:18 pm

I think Season 4’s premiere was better than this year’s but it’s still alright.


Barbara January 12, 2012 at 7:02 pm

No , Jason and kelly need to be one, LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS LOVE THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
