*BET has set a return date for The Game.
The record breaking sitcom will launch its fifth season on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2012 at 10 p.m., the cable network announced late Tuesday. Tia Mowry Hardrict leads the cast playing the wife of a professional football player (Pooch Hall).
“The Game” debuted on its new home for its fourth season with huge numbers for BET in January, drawing 7.7 million viewers. This makes it the best showing for the series on cable and broadcast ever, and BET’s most-watched telecast.
The comedy, created by Mara Brock Akil, was canceled by the CW after three seasons in May 2009, when it was averaging 2 million viewers. BET picked it up in 2010.
