YBF EXCLUSIVE: "The Game" Is Getting Sidelined?!

We're hearing rumblings from a certain actress from "The Game" that the show is very likely about to get sidelined. A very reliable source who has appeared in numerous episodes on the show reveals to TheYBF.com that the CW network may be in the process of axing its entire comedy division.  And that means "The Game" and "Everybody Hates Chris" are on the chopping block.  Here's the e-mail we received:
The Game's last shooting day is Tuesday [2/3]. Buzz around the set is that they don't know if they are coming back. I am hearing rumours about CW cutting the comedy division. [spoiler removed], so they wrapped that storyline if they don't come back. CW cut their budget so there are no wrap parties for their shows this year.
Damn.  First "Girlfriends" gets no wrap party love, now "The Game" and others won't either.  Rough times.  We all pretty much knew this was coming, though, as soon as they moved the show to the kill slot, b.k.a. Friday night.  Oh wells.  It was good while it lasted.... UPDATE: BET sent out a press release saying that they have acquired the rights to "The Game" from the CW and the show will join BET's lineup this month.  No word on if it's new shows or syndication:
"We're excited that THE GAME is joining our line-up," said Barbara Zaneri, Executive Vice President, Programming, Strategy, Scheduling & Acquisitions, BET Networks. "As the #1 rated show amongst African American viewers in broadcast television last season, it's a series that resonates with our audience, and we're thrilled with the long list of fresh stars associated with the series."

So it looks like CW is cutting the entire division. Why else would they get rid of a #1 show?

I love "THE GAME" something

I love "THE GAME" something terrible. We know BET wouldn't do the show any justice. When shows like THE GAME, and EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS are on the line, I wonder what benefits we have by having TVOne. If TVOne had the capital, they should barter a deal with the production companies to air the shows without any issues. TVOne is known for showing all a number of Black Sitcoms, a current sitcom, can generate viewership and boost their ratings.

CW is a product of RACIST

CW is a product of RACIST CBS. CBS has always been a racist network .When you look at the MONDAY night line up oin both CW and CBS not matter if it daytim or nightime shows they have an all white line up on CBS and CW .Tyra is the only token negro on the network.An if you count the blacks on hand on CBS on the soaps and night time show its not that many of them. Its 2 blacks per show on CBS prime time. An don't get me started on the daytime soaps with one black family too a show. I just can't believe that people are letting CBS and CW get away with this. Why isn't the big power players in Hollywood that are black stepping up.This mess wouldn't of happened back in the day . Black folk don't protest things that are worng no more. An when we don't do that the white man take snote of that keeps on doing that reverse racism on the job, on tv and etc. We so busy getting ARAB money that we aren't paying attention too the new AGE RACISM. Have we forgot what our parents , great grandparents went through.Don't get comfortable thinking that RACSIM is gone its alive but coming at you in a different way. PEOPLE.WAKE UP and keep fighting the POWER .Stop looking away and at RAYJ REALITY SHOW .Quit being spoonfed nonsense TV. I am sick of these lames ass white shows like Gossip Girl,90210 the new class, TopModel (has gotten lame since Dani Evan And Eva Pigford won its not good tv no more it realy never was .I was just a fool too watch it) , One TreeHill, etc. They want too eliminate good Tv for people 25- and up whom don't like OMG , TTYL, LOL, textr message The Hills type show.WERE is the ADULT comdey that my sister and I had in our 20's and 30's >They had shows like Martin,Living Single, SteveHArvey, Jamie Foxx , then we had Girlfriends then they took that away. I'm just tired of FOOL REality SHows like RAy J,I love Money ,REAL CHANCE at Love shows. Sick of black folk actring like BAfoons COONSfor the TV. I've ranted and spoke on it let me finish my pay roll data One Love An Them Damn WHITE DEVILS in the REPUBLICAN PARTY better sign the got DAMNED 900 Billion Dollar Stimulus package.Stop Playing with OUR DAMN MONEY and JOB you WHite DEVILS

I love this show, but the direction it was taking with the whole gay movement has turned me OFF........I have nothing wrong with gays or bi-sexuals. But as a semi sports fan, and manfanatic. I just dont want to watch that on my favorite show, and the TV networks is consitently pushing that crap into our homes every and our lives more and more everyday.

The CW is chessing me, first Veronica Mars gets canned with no season finally and now the this folishness...No good shows left to watch all the comedy shows are gone. Just stupid reality shows and "comedies" with one gay character. BET will just play the same old episodes over and over again..wow they splurged and bought another show its a miracle.

I hope BET does pick it up with new shows in the lineup... It's getting out of hand

[quote comment="409182"]Whatever happened with that channel Master P was going to start? I swear these Black millionaires need to invest in a channel so we can have our shows on there and not worry about it not getting supposed ratings.[/quote] Oh yeah, that's right. Master p did announce a few months ago he's creating a new network "Better Black Television". He may still be in the beginning stages of creating the network, but putting these shows on his channel is a good idea.

Well got damn, why am I not

Well got damn, why am I not surprised? I had a feeling they were going to find a way to cancel The Game and EHC, which is why they moved them to Fridays and that happens to be the worst day for ratings. This the same thing Fox did to the Bernie Mac show and how they moved Girlfriends to Sunday evenings before cancelling it. This is so messed up. The Game was the only sitcom I really looked forward to every week, and not just because it was an all black cast, but because the plots were interesting and entertaining. Man this really sucks! It makes sense now why the actor who plays the Malik character did that interview with Bossip a few days ago about how TV execs are trying to wipe black shows. He's certainly correct, and sad because now there's more out of work black actors. It's hard enough for them to find work as it is. Look at Vivica, she's resorted to endorsing a damn pyshic hotline. SMH.

Its sad that racism is still rearing its ugly head so boldy when we seemed to be making strides towards equality. With these budgets cuts you'd think they would get rid of the shows that are more....aww hell i'll just say this.....boring ass, pointless shows geared towards white folks, but no the 1st to go are the BLACK shows!!! pretty soon there wont be any black shows on major networks other than tv1 and Bet...

CW is going down the hole as

CW is going down the hole as a network. They made their target audience far too small -- tweens! Sure they have a couple of show for Urban audiences, but for the most part they are only interested in the Gossip Girl crowd. They attract so few viewers that the network will probably cease to exist before the new fall lineup gets underway.
