Why did the game tv show go off air so soon?


After The Game was canceled by the CW in May 2009, BET struck a deal with Paramount to develop new episodes of the series. At the April 2010 upfronts, BET announced its renewal, with new episodes to air in the fourth quarter of the 2010 season.

Entertainment, former majority owner of The WB Television Network. The "CW" name is derived from the first letters of the names of these corporations (CBS and Warner Bros.).

The network made its debut after its two predecessors, UPN and The WB, respectively ceased independent operations on September 15 and September 17, 2006. The CW's first two nights of programming – on September 18 and 19, 2006 – consisted of reruns and launch-related specials. The CW marked its formal launch date on September 20, 2006, with a two-hour season premiere of America's Next Top Model. The network's programming lineup is intended to appeal to people ranging in age from 18 to 34-years-old. The network currently runs programming six days a week: Monday through Fridays in the afternoon and in primetime, along with a Saturday morning children's programming block produced by Saban Brands called Vortexx.

Although sitcoms with primarily black characters had been present since the earliest days of network television (and indeed predate network television, as popular radio sitcoms included Beulah and Amos 'n' Andy), this genre rose to prominence in the 1990s.
