BET Launching Fall Season with Premiere Evening Oct. 14 [Video]
BET Networks is launching a top-notch Tuesday night for primetime television this fall with a premiere evening of stars featuring Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, T.I. and Queen Latifah on Oct. 14.
The evening includes BET’s first “Hip Hop Awards” pre-show “106 & Park at The Hip Hop Awards” at 7 p.m. That is followed by the debut of the BET “Hip Hop Awards” 2014, hosted by “Uncle Snoop” Dogg, at 8 p.m.
The evening ends with the third-season premiere of Hart’s comedy “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” with back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m.
Then, Dogg and BET present the BET “Hip Hop Awards” 2014, with performances from T.I., Bobby Shmurda and Ty Dolla $ign among others. The BET Hip Hop Awards 2014 were awarded Sept. 20 at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta.
Conscious rapper Common brought social awareness to the show, demonstrating that hip hop is still a voice for all two weeks after his father’s death. Other performances for the show included Birdman, DJ Premier, DJ Mustard, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Vince Staples, Jay Electronica, Migos, YG and Rae Sremmurd. “I Am Hip Hop Icon” Award recipient Doug E. Fresh is also scheduled.
That is followed by Hart making his return for “Real Husbands of Hollywood.” The show’s cast includes Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, Nelly, Cannon and Cynthia Kaye McWilliams. Guest appearances for the first episode include George Lopez, Jackie Long and Carey.
Among the show’s questions: Is “the beef” settled between Hart’s ex-boo, Nadine Velazquez, and his ex-wife, Bridgette (Erica Ash)? Did BFFs Tisha Campbell Martin and Nicole Ari Parker bury the hatchet? Also, Kodjoe makes a last-ditch attempt to prove his singing pipes are all his own.
There is also a reunion for the show on Oct. 14, with “Real Husbands of Hollywood Reunion Special 2: Mitch, Please.” Rosci Diaz is the host.
