The Mo'Nique Show Is Gone- But For How Long?

Comedy News

As we reported a couple of days ago, Black Entertainment Television decided to not bring The Mo’Nique Show back for the new fall season. We learned that the network decided to put an hiatus on the show, while not officially cancelling the show but “leaving the door open to any new opportunities” as said by a BET Exec who would not go on record.

Now, what does that mean you ask? We are not sure either, but we do know that there were issues with the cost of the show and there were other concerns about the show’s direction but not as bad as what was reported.

Anyway, in the last few hours we discovered that the show may not be on hiatus too long after all. We have discovered that there are several networks who have quietly stepped up to pick up the show and we are thinking that the show may land on another VIACOM channel (the parent company that owns BET). No official word of this yet but we are thinking that it may just land on VH1, especially after the surprise of the successful urban programming that they have with The Basketball Wives and  Single Ladies. Let’s not forget that VH1 is also launching another Basketball Wives- Los Angeles Edition, which is already in pre-production now.

At the end of the day, it’s all about viewers, and VH1 is steadily earning more and more urban viewers and we hear that they are quietly packaging more urban driven shows. SO there will be no surprise if The Mo’Nique Show lands there.

Anyway, here is our video edition of the Humor Mill New Break with our host comedian Stevie Mack as he gives you the latest news about The Mo’Nique Show and all of our latest news!

    That’s foolishness, Monique’s show was the only show I watched consistently on BET

  2. what da hell

    The show HAS NO RATINGS!!!!! It doesn’t get even a million viewers nightly, The person that said its the only show they watch consistently… its you and 499k other people. That’s not enough from a business perspective. Plus the show makes me want to eat watermelon, fry chicken and learn to tap dance while reading scriptures! It’s coon-foonery and I wouldn’t have it on if I was in a coma… It would actually wake me up or flatline me!!! Good Bye Good Riddens! Give Chris SPencer A SHOT HE’s classier , He’s funnier and I think a few white people might actually watch him too.

    Well first of all you’re probably telling a lie you don’t have any idea no more than I do how many viewers Mo’nique & her show got because I don’t even know but I do know it was a good piece! The show shouldn’t have ever been taken off of bet in the first place it made them money she won awards for it how more successful can it get! The show will be back trust me and she will knock everyone else out of the park because that was the only show THE ONLY SHOW! That had me rolling constantly and I actually went to bed feeling good.
