Despite all the crap the network took BEFORE Reg took over (and it was deserved, IMO), he was taking pains to move the thing into the direction of something other than ghetto.
Moving something that big takes time and people just didn't want to seem to give it to him. I'll never know anything about what really went on backstage there but black folks really need to wake the hell up. BET has our NAME on it.
Chocolate New was audacious, funny and, in its way, just as controversial and on point as THE DAILY SHOW while not copying it in any way.
DAG is the shiznit and people need to recognize.
Dropped ball. Doesn't bode well for the future.
Hell, I was hoping to get a black SCIFI show on there in a couple years.
Not worth pursuing now.
