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.
