BET’s ‘Hip Hop Awards’ Show Drops Big In Ratings

BET's 'Hip Hop Awards' Show Drops Big In Ratings

Despite the heavily reported backstage fight between Young Jeezy and Rick Ross (and will somebody PLEASE tell him to stop pulling up his shirt) the ratings for BET's Hip-Hop Awards show on Tuesday night took a serious drop in ratings and viewership.

This Tuesday's show was down 1 million viewers from last year's show, pulling in just slightly over 3 million viewers, as compared to 4.1 millions viewers a year ago.

As a result, the network's new reality show, Keyshia and Dainel: Family First, got lower ratings and viewership than the sit-com Reed Between the Lines, which premiered after last year's awards show, though by a slimmer margin – 3.3 million viewers for Reed, compared to 2.9 million for Keyshia and Daniel.
