The cast of BET's "The Game" celebrated the show's 100th episode and season six debut last night in NY.  TheYBF.com was on the scene, and we've got deets and pics from inside the premiere party.  Plus, watch the cast drop by "106 & Park"...

 

Last night, the cast of BET's hit scripted series, "The Game" host a swanky premiere party in New York City at the swanky Soho House.  The party celebrated last night's 100th episode which also doubled at the show's sixth season opener.

The show's hilarious scene-stealer, Wendy Raquel Robinson, looked good in a blue cut-out sleeve jumper.  She thanked the attendees for their support of "The Game" over the years.  And Wendy, who runs a performing arts school called "Amazing Grace Conservatory," revealed at the party that her production company is working on a African-American centered remake of Alice in Wonderland.

And Brandy posed with her sexy new co-star Jay Ellis.  Jay gave a teary speech of gratitude to the audience where he thanked the fans for allowing him to nab this job for the last 8 months.

And Brandy (who also posed with former co-star Tika Sumpter), thanked the fans and spoke excitedly about the evolution of her "Chardonnay" character.  She'll be establishing a new bond with "Tasha Mack" this season.  And hopefully her character will learn some style sense.

The party was also attended by series regular Hosea Chanchez and BET's CEO Debra Lee.  

 

And earlier in the day....

The cast (Barry Floyd, Hosea, Lauren, Jay and Brandy) stopped by the set of "106 & Park" to talk about the changes their characters go through this year.

Watch the cast on "106 & Park" here:

Based off the premiere, we're not sure if this is still a comedy....and it seemed like one long infomercial for Instagram and Twitter.  But we're going to keep watching....

I WILL STAY TUNED

My goodness, that Lauren

My goodness, that Lauren person is a terrible actor. Well, so is the new guy. I will try a couple more episodes but it was a bit tedious and hard to watch when Derwin, Tasha or that yellow guy (sorry, can't remember his name at the moment) wasn't in the room...

Tika is beautiful but she should never pull her hair back like that. Brandy is beautiful and glowing...I wish her all the best. LL is gorgeous.

I watched last night (along with Twitter lol), and I was happy to see the good feedback that I saw. Of course The Game isnt the same as before, but I will keep watching. Derwin did his thing last night, and I was superrr sad to see him leave. Dont want the new guy taking his place lol But Im hoping him and Lauren bring it, because Im watching. Is Ciara's role permanent, recurring??

I am LOVING the fab-ness that Brandy is bringing to the table these days. She has a glow of happiness about her and its transcending through her looks, especially her hair. Lauren London looks nice and I think she is a pretty young lady, but I wasn't impressed in the least with her acting skills. I swear every time she opens her mouth I can't get New New (the character she played in ATL) out of my head. I haven't watched the season opener in its entirety but I like the way Tasha Mack keeps the humor and realness there. It was sad to see Derwin leave, but I'm hoping these writers going to beef it up and hold the interest of its fans through Lauren and Jay as the new 'it' couple.

I hope 106&Park gets cancelled too, the 4 hosts thing is stupid and the show sucks now

I hope this is the last

I hope this is the last season of the game. Whenever I think BET has a good idea such as bringing The Game back they go ad coon and ratchet it up and it becomes a disaster. Last night was the best I have ever seen of Pooch Hall, he was spectacular...BET is the one's who made Derwin and Melanie fade but Malik stay in rehab and is a hoe 8 seasons in. The show used to have real storylines, now its Diary of a Bunch of Sluts. Do better BET

Brandy does look really

Brandy does look really pretty. I hope she talked to her little brother about some of his foolishness as of late. But now on to the real topic. Lil Bow Wow and his complete and total wackness. His little shirt and his tapered jeans. I'm sure this must be the look and all the rage in Hollywood...but he is just...ugh

I just posted a comment and it went through just fine. Why now must my comment by scrutinized when I DIDN'T WRITE ANYTHING THAT WAS OFFENSIVE! THIS SITE IS STARTING TO ANNOY THE HECK OUT OF ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry to read the

I'm sorry to read the comments about the premier being whack! I taped it and will watch it tonight. I was already on the fence about the new character setup, but I have to see this for myself. awwwww.
Happy Lady's picture

That's my boy, T-T!!!

That's my boy, T-T!!! Someone said in the other post that Lauren had cheek implants. It doesn't look like that at all. She has dimples and that will make a person's cheeks stand out more. Also, my cheekbones are like that and I don't have implants. I don't think Lauren's cheeks are that pronounced to make a person think they're fake. smh!

The show was great first

The show was great first three seasons,now it sucks and should end quickly

This show is awful!! Mel,

This show is awful!! Mel, Kelly and Tasha drinking wine and being funny was the highlight of the show. Brandy is cool, but they messed up with Lil' Wayne's baby mama (Laura London) and 50 Cent's leftovers (Ciara). Without Derwin, Mel and Kelly, you have a BET ratchet comedy!! No humor at all!! And how many seasons is Malik going to be in rehab?? Geeeshhhh!!

I DVR'd, but hadn't watched

I DVR'd, but hadn't watched yet. I'm trying to stay loyal to this show, but you make some very valid points on the downward direction it's taken.

These people suck as actors

These people suck as actors and since we want BLACK TV SHOWS sooooo bad, we put up with lackluster performances and bad writing just so "WE" can have something to watch. #NOTinterested

The Game's cast members look

The Game's cast members look great on 106 & Park. No matter how pretty she is, every time I see Lauren London I envision her in bed with Lil Wayne, and I start itchin'. In bed...with a 5 ft tall roach...ewww...she can't act either but maybe she'll get better. Last night's premiere did have some good scenes though--when Derwin was drafted and Jason walked him thru the cameras and talked him down I was moved. It seemed VERY real to me. And when the new guy thought Malik's mom was the hotel maid-and she called him Blues Clues I was LMAO. Not to mention Brandy's lil outfits; typical attire of a hood chick who finally has more than $10 in the bank. Things can get interesting--I'll be tuning in.

Me tooooooo. I only see Lil

Me tooooooo. I only see Lil Wayne when I see New-New. I just cant get past it!!! *shudders*

I get the feeling that LL isnt really that comfortable with her new mommy weight.

She does have a few extra

She does have a few extra grams on her, but why do you say, shuga?
MrsCPA's picture

because she poses like I used

because she poses like I used to pose right after I gave birth and I was self conscious about my new body. Even in the Game promo ad you see her with her hands covering her mid section.

Ok, I gotcha. And must I say

Ok, I gotcha. And must I say that outfit she wore to Wendy yesterday made her look like she had a nice-sized pooch. Doesn't look so much here.
MrsCPA's picture

I was totally NOT into the

I was totally NOT into the last season of The Game. The show had went downhill. BUT I must say the premiere got my interest all over again. It appears to be some really great storylines that I hope BET will capitalize on. Like with any show, it goes thru changes and it was time for Derwin and Melanie to move on. They had become dull with no real purpose. Kelly lost her way and her character made her exit not soon enough and to be honest, they can replace Jason. This show has my interest---hopefully they can keep it.
BooLuv's picture

That new guy is so

That new guy is so unappealing, I don't give a damn how many abs he got and plus he can't act. They actually got rid of Pooch (who did an amazing job last night) for this shithead. Lauren is cute, but that's where it ends.....she can't act for shit either and their chemistry is no where in the league of Derwin and Girl Melanie. They could've left Ciara's bad acting ass out as well......and why in the hell did they have her ass walking down the hall like that.....so f---king stupid. Clearly they're trying to appeal to a younger and more ratchet audience. Their writing has gone to the dogs. Rick Fox looked sexy as hell though....he most definitely can get it. THE END!!!!!

I agree with everything you

I agree with everything you said from the first word to the last. The show sucks.

Last quarter for 106 &

Last quarter for 106 & Park... that show is dry too

Yeah, I have to agree with

Yeah, I have to agree with Natkia3. Game over! It was SOOOO sad to see Ding Dong leave. Man, if you've been a fan since Pooch became Derwin, and now to see that he and Melanie (who were the nucleus of the damn show) have been put out to pasture is sad. The show has definitely lost it! I'm sure this will be the last season of The Game. P.S. Pooch acted his arse off too. Love him.
