    OK, from what I've heard and from what I've seen on my visits to the US, BET isn't exactly the dog's bollocks, the bee's knees or the cat's meouw, so, um...

    Question: Why don't they provide "quality, Black cultural content" to their home market the way they say they intend to bring it "to communities around the world?"

    "Hell Date" is crap with any accent. Personally I am a fan of British progamming, but I'm always amazed by how well received some of the worst American shows are in the U.K. Jerry Springer was very popular back in the day. Eeeeeesh!
