Show Summary

The Game stars Tia Mowry as Melanie Barnett, a young, intelligent medical student, who is also the girlfriend of an eager rookie football player, Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall). Melanie decides to pass on her chance at attending Johns Hopkins Medical School to be with Derwin after he is recently chosen to play for the San Diego Sabres as the new third-string wide receiver. As Melanie tries to adjust to her new lifestyle, she meets Tasha Mack (Wendy Raquel Robinson), single mother and manager of Malik Wright (Hosea Chanzes) who is a charming star quarterback for the San Diego Sabres and Kelly Pitts (Brittany Daniel), the satisfying wife of Jason Pitts (Coby Bell) who is a thrifty star player for the San Diego Sabres. With the help of Tasha and Kelly, Melanie learns how the game is played amongst the women behind the athletes. The Game originally aired on the CW before BET Networks picked it up in 2010.


    The CW's Upcoming "Brand Refresh": 5 Past Mistakes the Network Should Learn From

    As the network prepares for a minor re-launch, we thought it might be instructive (and honestly, a bit amusing) to look back on some of its biggest missteps, so that it might learn from them in the future.

    • Love This Show

      Was glad when ding-dong and Melani left the show. One can only take so much of them breaking up and getting back together, breaking up, making up, breaking up, making up... Chardonnay is my girl! She keeps it so real on that show. If you find yourself not liking her, you don't like the truth about life. Can't say much about kiera and blue. Love Tosha Mac, she is too funny and truly carried the show from the beginning. Can't wait to watch tonight. By the way, Brandy is excellent as Roxy Hart in the broadway musical "Chicago" . I hope she turns it out this last season.moreless
    • Used to Love This Show

      I don't know if the final season should even be aired on National TV. The last season was pitiful. I used to love this show. I don't know if they have different writers or what, but if they do, they need to be fired. I have not decided if I will watch this final season or not.
    • Disappointed

      So they decide to cancel the show after season 9 but didnt even care to write anything decent for season 8? Makes me question even watching the last season, too bad I'm loyal cuz this is wack & I'm very disappointed!!
    • Still an optimistic fan!

      No matter what all the naysayers think and believe, I'm still very much a fan of the show, past and current actors included. The story line has seen a tremendous overhaul with writers going in a direction that doesn't seem to be very well received by a large viewership , but let's try to continue to support BET and the remaining actors. Truthfully, I liked Kelly's presence on the show and was utterly devastated when the only one permanent Caucasian of the cast was removed for whatever reason. I hope she will continue to make guests appearances and ultimately return as a full-time cast member. I realize Chardonnay was deeply hurt by Jason's marriage rebuttal, but I'm not in favor of her literally trying to vindictively make him suffer so much financially. Let's just be real, they were married in Tijuana both in an alcoholic stupor. So neither should have had high expectations for the marriage lasting or having unrealistic expectations for a fairytale outcome. Regardless of which one was actually wealthy or not. I was hoping for a more amicable solution and dissolution of the marriage without the vindictiveness. Needless to say, I will continue to watch and support the show and BET network. As we've all seen and is very much so evident in the ratings, there is MASSIVE influence by African American viewership! That alone should make us more proactive in our support of the ever growing shows that cater to primarily ethnic audiences or rely heavily on our support for any hopes of success. Just to name a few: Scandal, Being Mary Jane, How To Get Away With Murder, Black-ish, Extant, etc. This does NOT include any of the ratchet reality shows as basically the drama in those will sell itself! Not proud of the fact that RHOA, Love & Hip Hop franchise, Basketball Wives, R&B Divas ATL and LA, SWV Reunited, and Mary Mary are all the ones that I can think of right off hand that capitalize on bringing so much negativity and downright shameful behavior, it's often offensive. Although I'm personally guilty of watching a few of those listed, I'm saddened that I'm merely supporting ratchet, drama-filled tv as a trade off for what should be black, women, and entrepreneurial empowerment. If at any point those shows were originally designed to promote that, that focus has long since been lost and simply fallen by the wayside!moreless
    • It's an all right show

      The Game was the second spin-off series I watched before I knew the parent show, the first is Angel. The show was okay, though I have only see some of it on tv and online. Now I don't mean to compare to things to another, but The Game is kinda like Futurama. I know Futurama is a cartoon and The Game is a live action show, but here are some hints on how these shows are alike (in my opinion): 1] the main characters are somewhat in their 20's, 2] both of them have been cancelled after 3 or 4 seasons, 3] the two returned a few years later but on a different network and 4] both are being cancelled again. That's all I can say about it. ANYWAYS, the show was good, but it changed quickly.moreless
