Get Up On This: BET’s ‘Being Mary Jane’ Starring Gabrielle Union Exceeds Expectations

Being Mary Jane proved a winner for BET last night. The show’s 90-minute premiere Tuesday was the highest-rated show on cable and the second  highest-rated program on TV with a 2.0 rating. Only NBC’s America’s Got Talent did better in adults 18-49 last night with its 2.3 rating.

This is a story to which millions of modern women will both relate and respond. Mary Jane Paul is a one-woman machine: a successful TV news anchor, and an entirely self-sufficient powerhouse who remains devoted to a family that doesn’t share her motivation.

Intense drama and unforgettable moments unfold as Mary Jane juggles her life, her relationships, her work and commitments to her family.

Being Mary Jane stars Gabrielle Union, Omari Hardwick and Lisa Vidal.
