BET: Pooch Hall Is Leaving "The Game" For Showtime Network Role, Hopes He & Tia Will Return For Guest Appearances

​ ​ ​ ​

With Tia Mowry announcing this week she will not be returning for season 6 of "The Game," and reports saying Pooch Hall will not either, BET networks has issued a statement explaining the situation.  Deets inside..

BET, the home network of "The Game," said in a statement today that Pooch isn’t returning because of his “involvement on a new project.”   That new project is the Showtime pilot “Ray Donovan.”

The network went on to say it “is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline” and hopes Hall and Mowry “will make several guest appearances.”

Still calling B.S. on this ish.  Why?  Because Coby Bell--who plays the major role of Jason Pitts--has also played a mid-level role on USA network's "Burn Notice" for the past few years now.  All while still working on "The Game."  So it is possible.  Not to mention many of the non-lead actors like Meagan Good, Brandy and others have several different projects outside of the show. 

Everybody just needs to keep it 100 about what really went down.   And as for the show continuing without the main two characters--just not seeing it.

Oh wells.  It was fun while it lasted.

Deuces.

OK people! Let me bring it

OK people! Let me bring it again today 4 U. 1st of all Pooch and Tia both have spouses,kids,and family based in Cali and the GAME is now filmed in the ATL! 2ndly BET has made a killing from this show so the lead characters and others should be paid as promised 3rdly the past 2 seasons of the GAME have been straight hood ex. B4 Derwin loved playing ball and Girl Melanie never cared about the money Derwin made as long as they were together so why make him and her materialistic,Tasha Mack did not want to be labled a teen mom turned grown hood rat which was why she opened her own mgmt. comp. and be independent of her son's fame and we have seen none of that on BET! BET writers have resorted her back to nothing sleeping with male hookers and dating an ex-con from the hood named POOKIE and then have Jason with a girl named chardonnay (come on people we can do better with the names here) and HOORAY 4 u Pooch to have the wisdom to leave a failing show with some dignity! Ok friends i will comment again when TASHA,MALIK N JASON leave the show which will be in a couple of weeks LOL

I think what really bothers

I think what really bothers me the most is how much effort the fans put in to keep the show going, and now that its going, all of a sudden the main actors have to leave?! I agree, we're not getting the full value reason as to why this went down.

Coby Bell's character has not

Coby Bell's character has not been on every episode this season due to his involment with the other show so yes it can be done however his time on screen has been greatly reduced from when The Game was on the CW. Tia has an infant son and husband ... they live in LA, the game films in Atlanta ... since BET is known to be cheap it's probably just not worth it anymore.

The whole point of the show

The whole point of the show was Joan Clayton lil cousin Melanie Barnett aka Med School moving to be with her an who is a baller, this show was better on the CW BET ruined it per usual. BritBrat is like 25, they made Mel who by the reboot should be a fullfledge doctor but turned her into a baller wife with no life. I wish Tia and Pooch best of luck and if theres a silver lining is the world doesnt have to be subjected to one of the most annoying tv baby mama the world has seen in years that Jenae lol

BET sure know how to mess up

BET sure know how to mess up a good thing. Getting rid of Tia and Pooch is like KFC getting rid of chicken. Umm by the way folks Terrance and Rocsi are getting let go because they have been hosts for 7 yrs and are simply too damn to be hosting a predominantley teen show, plus they both going to hollywood to persue acting careers. Have you guys seen thier replacements? They are from Detroit and the girl look like a hoodrat/video model jumpoff.

Its called producers credit.

Its called producers credit. After being a star on a show for many yeats plp want raises and producers credit. Sad to say it bt BET though currently white owned stay acting like mom and pop where they want to keep as much money to themselves while they pay the plp who make them successful nxt to nothing. Its the reason free and aj was let go 8/9 yrs ago and why there will always be a continued rotation of hosts and stars. At least MTV knows to reward the plp who pt money in their pockets

If no one wants to say what

If no one wants to say what really happened, oh well. This is BET we're dealing with ya know. Perhaps the situation got so messy that they just don't want to break it all down; that's their prerogative. They are actors, so clearly they can put on a show quite well and we tune in to watch them do so. #biggerfishtofry

All good things must come to

All good things must come to an end. Honestly The Game this season has been quite disappointing. Melanie and Derwin's roles were becoming rather stale and stagnant. I think they can work on developing the remaining characters and kill that awful auto tune music .. uughh. I'm rooting for The Game and hope they can pull it off.

WOW...it's like we scream, holler and protest to keep this show alive and they just walk away. Nope don't believe it. It hasn't really been that good since they went to BET anyway which is not surprising because BET tends to butcher everything.

One word....FOOLISHNESS!..It's not all that good anyway this season and the little bit of Melanie & Derwin we do see is gonna be gone?? Like Really??!!!

i don't think that it's

i don't think that it's anything other than what they are saying. i think that these are two talented people who see an opportunity for growth and something different and want to venture out and do other things. i also think that they are being realistic about the future of this show and can see that this show and its story line may have run it's course and it's just time to move on to bigger and better things.
