Loop21.com—After last year’s premiere where a record 7.7 million people tuned in, the largest ever for a cable TV sitcom season debut, The Game returns for it’s fifth season tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT on BET. The drama-filled series centers on the stars of a fictional football team, the San Diego Sabers, but the field is only the backdrop. The real focus of The Game revolves around the personal relationships between the players and the women in their lives. The cover-your-mouth drama continues this season with 22 episodes as Melanie Barnett-Davis copes with her husband Derwin discovering an alleged abortion while Malik Wright discovers his intoxicated ex-girlfriend Jenna at his front door.
There’s also a new yet recognizable face on this season’s cast, R&B singer Brandy Norwood, who plays sassy bartender Chardonnay. She has her eye on newly single Jason Pitts, who divorced his wife Kelly in Season Three. Other familiar faces you might see around San Diego include Dallas Mavericks’ Shawn Marion, Grammy Award winner Estelle, former Victoria Secret model Selita Ebanks, and Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Nene Leakes.
