New BET promo shot of the cast of the TV show "The Game."

The Game is returning to television tonight on BET. After it was unceremoniously canceled, fans took to the Internet demanding its return. The protests, zines, homage videos and 2 million Facebook followers fell on deaf ears at the CW, but BET heard the call and decided to answer. BET and the show's creator, Mara Brock-Akil, announced last year that The Game would be returning to TV with the entire core cast, much to the delight of fans.

Facebook is all abuzz with the return of the show, with cities as diverse as Los Angeles, New York, Charlotte and Atlanta hosting The Game watch parties. Fans and critics are wondering how the shift to a different network will impact the show. BET has been critiqued for having low production values in the past. Will that change with this game-changing show? The new season debuts tonight on BET at 10 p.m. EST.
