BET earns their highest ratings ever with the 3rd annual BET awards. With a show highlighted by Michael Jackson and Steve Harvey presenting James Brown with the Lifetime Achievement Award, Stevie Wonder playing 50 Cent on his harmonica, and Monique crackin’ up the crowd, I’m not surprised by BET’s success. This 3rd Annual show was the absolute best one of the trilogy of shows so far. The following is a snippet of a press release from media giant and BET owner Viacom: [quote]HOLLYWOOD (June 26, 2003) – As rave reviews roll in, one important stakeholder for BET has spoken loud and clear about Tuesday night’s 3RD ANNUAL BET AWARDS – the fans. BET shattered the network’s all-time marks for viewership as the awards telecast scored a 4.3 rating, which translates into a whopping 3.2 million households and 5.5 million viewers. Those household and viewer tallies are the best in BET’s 23-year history and surpass the previous all-time best, a 1996 telecast of an exclusive interview with O. J. Simpson following his murder acquittal (3.1 million households; 4.2 million viewers). This year’s salute to African-American greatness in music, sports and acting gets its [b]first encore showings on Tuesday, July 8 and Thursday, July 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.[/b] [/quote] To read the full press release and to leave your views, click over to the MJ CONVERSATIONS forum.
