BET unveils new lineup, featuring T.J. Holmes on late-night show

This seems like some really good shows coming to BET! I wonder what made them decide to put some real programs on with some substance. I very seldom watch BET now unless it is for an awards show. I was really upset when they cancelled The Monique Show!! Good luck T.J., I hope they give you a real shot at success.

BET unveiled its programming plans for the new season on Wednesday in New York, a slate that includes a scripted comedy about how hard it is to break into the entertainment industry when you’re a Wayans family member; a “house husbands” spoof of Bravo’s “Housewives” franchise; an “America’s Most Wanted”-ish reality series starring Judge Greg Mathis; and a late-night show starring T.J. Holmes.

 A former CNN anchor reporter, Holmes will deliver “smart, biting social commentary on significant issues important to African Americans” that “mainstream media tends to disregard,” BET said Wednesday of its new late-night strip, “Don’t Sleep!” The show will include correspondents and live music.

“House Husbands” is a semi-scripted skewering of all things “Housewives,” based on Kevin Hart’s “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” sketches that the network unveiled during the 2011 BET Awards. Hart will star and exec-produce. “Second Generation Wayans” is a fully scripted comedy series exec-produced by Marlon Wayans, and starring Craig Wayans, Damien Dante Wayans and George O. Gore II (the guy who played Big Head Junior in Damon Wayans’s sitcom “My Wife & Kids”). The guys “struggle” to make it in Hollywood while suffering from being members of “America’s first family of comedy” — as opposed to the rest of you who are trying to make it in Hollywood while blissfully free of “celebrity relatives.”
