BET's 'Being Mary Jane' 2-Hour Season Finale Draws A Strong 5.8 Million Viewers

The 2-hour season finale of BET’s freshman prime-time drama series Being Mary Jane, was Tuesday’s top cable TV original with a 1.6/18-49 rating, drawing 2.6 million viewers during the first hour (9pm-10pm), and 3.2 million viewers during the second hour (10pm – 11pm), for a total of 5.8 million viewers, Live+SD

Live+SD means, simply, the people who watch the program live, as it airs, plus the people who watch via DVR within the “same day,” or between when the show actually airs and 3am EST (midnight PST), which is the time when the numbers get sent to Nielsen for processing.
In comparison, the BET original movie (pilot) for Being Mary Jane, which aired last summer, drew 4 million viewers

Needless to say, the series, which is officially a hit for BET, is returning for a second season.
