Well, yall, it looks as if the folks over at BET are gearing up for another season of brand new shows as well as returning series that just may become some of the most non-entertaining shows since....last season! I'm just playing! One thing I ain't playing about is that Take the Cake. They can get rid of that. Well, no, let me rephrase that: they can replace Toccara with someone else because no one should be subjected to hearing her annoying ass voice night after night. Ugh, God! Who told her she has a voice fit for television? Either she's overacting, being too extra (or whatever you want to call it) or she's just...damn, annoying. Did I tell yall that I had to put my tv on mute while watching/listening to her on the BET awards? Yes, it was that serious. And that's real talk right there. Trust.

Anywhoo, read on to see what's new and what shows are coming back. From the looks of it, BET may have a little sum'em-sum'em for just about everyone. I found more than a couple that yanked my attention.
