Bad Sign for First BET Original Drama Series LA Times

The numbers are looking discouraging for BET’s first original scripted drama series. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that “Being Mary Jane” saw a troubling drop in viewership for its second episode.

The episode drew 2.8 million viewers on Tuesday, a decline of more than 15% from its debut episode, which attracted 3.3 million viewers, the story notes.

“The debut installment had already dropped from the more than 4 million viewers who tuned in to the show's movie-length pilot, which aired last May,” the piece adds.

The series stars Gabrielle Union as a successful TV news personality facing challenges in her personal life.
