The Game (2006–2012)

Akil's Girlfriends was so popular, it spawned a spin-off. The Game, starring Tia Mowry, aired for three seasons on the CW network before it was canceled, an experience Akil describes as "humbling." But the difficult moment had a Hollywood ending when BET picked up the series, and it shattered ratings records and brought in an even bigger audience than before. With the success of the series, Akil's television legacy was secure.
