    Always copying. Cancel BET aka CET (C*** Entertainment Television)

    • Jasmine June 10, 2019

      They are not ‘copying’. They are SURVIVING. Face it. Cable tv is a thing of the past!

        Exactly TROLLmine!!! Tell’em

      • Jasmine June 10, 2019

        You know all about SURVIVING don’t you ROACH. Look at u using my good name for your TROLL identity b|tch. Remember, I know who u are in real life. Hell, we could be related. Many of my ancestors are from the same country as yours by your last name! I’m sure they would disapprove of you coming, being obsessed with me, and being on your MIND all the TIME. U must be the ’37 year old TROLLmine’ cause I surealy ain’t. I’m 29 and my man is 28. Keep seething boo and staying obsessed and jealous!

    😔 I am truly rooting for BET to finally employ fresh, innovative, visionary energy to resuscitate the brand from hospice care. For the culture!

    Can’t ever have anything original and good. It’s all cheap, forgettable and recycled. We’ve had enough of Tyler and Lee Daniels. ENOUGH!!!

      Facts

  4. Lol June 10, 2019

  5. My third eye June 10, 2019

    BET is legendary

    • Jasmine June 10, 2019

      Shut up b|tch!

    • Jasmine June 10, 2019

      I know I’m on your MIND all the TIME which is why u created a TROLL account dedicated and named after me but I am NOT 37 nor is my name TRASHmine or TROLLmine b|tch. I am proud to be 29 years old, married, and a mother! Don’t force me to read you for filth. REMEMBER, I know who u are in REAL life so shut your obsessed ass up and get mental help for your Jasmine obsession. It is NOT my fault you are obsessed with me so don’t come for me! You want my life then move your ass to Cali and do what you need to do to be successful!

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES 💁🏿‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine June 10, 2019

        Shut up TROLLmine nobody was even talking to you but YOU decided to stick ur hèrmâphrodite nose in business not pertaining to you, girl (boy). I’ve ignored you for a very long time, do NOT make me come to your corner and embarrass you in front of your clients and your babydoll. Cause I will if I have to bïtch (nïggà)!

      • Jasmine June 10, 2019

        Your user name is very DISRESPECTFUL. I am the ONLY Jasmine on TGJ that was BORN a woman and I am a long time commenter. Thus, the name ‘Jasmine’ is mine and mine alone on TGJ. I know who you are. You need to show me some respect. As Birdman said, put some ‘RESPEK’ on my name b|tch!

        I may not always make comments u agree with but long time commenters have LITERALLY witnessed my personal growth on this board. I have grown from a
        bigoted’ woman to a worldly woman making friends and acquaintances all over the globe with my truth, honesty, sophistication, eagerness to learn, eagerness to accept, and eagerness to love.

        You are like a lost pit bull with nothing to bite or chew on! I am NOT a ‘hermaphrodite’. I am all woman and I know u are jealous. Like I said, I know who u are. U belong here in Cali with me. I could teach you the ropes and teach you how to be a millionaire within a month’s time if only your negative mind could be open for once. You could be one of my Judys and everyone knows Jasmine will take care of you. I am all about positivity, honesty, humbleness, and money bags. Right now, you are too set on being a BULLY instead of fulfilling your potential.

        Coming for me gets you nowhere. Coming for the world gets your everywhere. REMEMBER that!

        When u are ready to be mature and be cool with Jasmine let mama know!

    Lmao they about to create the slowest streaming service. All the episodes are going to be lagging, every release will be delayed and all of it will be d list actors and actresses. This will be the Tidal of streaming services because no one will have it except a small few

    • Casual June 11, 2019

      This.

  8. Danyboo June 10, 2019

    Tyler Perry??? Why???

  9. Lana Del Fan June 10, 2019

    What else are they gonna stream besides Baby Boy and Madeas Family Reunuon?

  10. It’s a shame June 10, 2019

    I’m here for it. More black money. It may not be black owned but it’s daln sure black operates and gives a platform to BLACK-ness.

  11. MusicBoss101 June 11, 2019

    They need to focus on having enough original content and not just reruns of other networks syndicated shows on their own channel first and foremost. Like who watches BET anymore. Even mtv and vh1 are bigger staples for appointment tv than bet is. I don’t even know five current shows on air there. Maybe not even 3 I could name.
