The Cast of The Game

With more options to entertain ourselves than any other time in history, it's hard to get audiences to even tune in to a show, let alone rally to keep it on the air. Credit goes to the splendid cast, original lead by Tia Mowry-Hardrict, who earned audience loyalty that gave The Game the biggest comeback story in recent memory. Though the popular series was canceled by the CW after theree seasons, it was soon revived and brought to BET where it lasted six more seasons. The ninth season will, unfortunately, be its last.
