Rating the Ratings: It wasn't quite The Game's breakthrough first season on BET, but The Game has re-established itself as one of cable's top draws after a couple seasons of major slippage. Why just a B+ for such a positive season? It has to do with how the series' last season went down. That season had a very weak first half but then rallied to a 1.3 average in the second half of the season. Since I rewarded the show's second half momentum in the last update (giving a B for a season that was -18% overall), I'm nicking this season since the +13% is not perfectly representative of the show's immediate momentum; it was only even with the most recent run. Grade: B+.
Here's the now updated War of 18-49 post for The Game.
