Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of Being Mary Jane averaged a 0.36 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 860,000 viewers. Compared to last year, season four is down by 51% in the demo and down by 47% in viewers. Learn how Being Mary Jane stacks up against other BET TV shows.
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. I expected BET to renew Being Mary Jane for season five (providing all parties could come to terms) but the ratings are way down. Now, I’m not so sure.
