In a memo to Full Force, Jubba Seyyid TV One’s Sr. Dir. Programming and Production confirmed that fact:
“Hey Fellas, You did it!! The final numbers from your episode are in. The Full Force ‘Unsung’ episode is now the highest rated episode in TV One History. Congratulations gentlemen. You said your show would do it … and it did.”
And being Mr Congeniality, Full Force’s Bow Legged Lou took to Facebook to spread the word and send shout outs and thanks to all those responsible for their history making episode:
