The fact that B E T. has been bringing us the who, how, and why of all things television makes me even more eager to rep their success and tell you about two things due that we can't wait to see on the B E T Network/Centric TV. B E T has always provided a creative outlet for African Americans to shin. No faucet of the African American lifestyle is left out of the mix. Entertainment in all forms is what everyone can expect to see when flipping the channel and landing Black Entertainment Television. Music, gospel, dance, acting, and news are all the things that make up culturally relevant programming on B E T.

One of the two things we can not wait to see is The Live B E T Awards Show Experience. Every year some of the hottest artist hit the stage pre-show before the actually ceremony begins. Hot celebs mesh with the Red Carpet and hot designer looks to be seen and heard. The glitz and glam is so exciting to see. Our second can't wait to see is Apollo Live comes to us via Centric TV which can be seen in select areas. Apollo Live is a modern day spin of "Amateur Night" At The Apollo Theater. A talent line up  including special guest and performers who will also grace the stage. It's a view of that new generation classic!

If Centric Programming is not available in your area, check out so that you can take advantage of online video showcasing performances and interviews with popular stars on The Hot 10 Episodes. B E T Fans can be heard chanting "We Got You" while Centric Fans are shouting "What's Good" Both are slogans of their respective stations. Debra Lee, Chairman/CEO reveals the B E T Network Mission "We have a diverse roster of new programming that respects our audience and reflects their lives."

"B E T Networks, is a subsidiary of Viacom Inc. ... is the nations leading provider of quality entertainment, music, news, and public affairs television programming for the African American audience"
