  1. Another fail by BET. You have to find a better show than asking white people about our culture. Seems like you’re just looking for white acceptance or something.

  2. They should have included more classic tv shows like Fresh Prince and other shows of that era. People don’t watch TV like before.

    BET doesn’t even have original programming anymore. Every time I check TV Guide channel to see what is on BET, it is usually a Martin marathon.
