'The Game' Season Premiere Huge for BET

The CW must be kicking themselves.

The Game, which debuted on its new home on BET, returned for its fourth season with huge numbers for the cable net, drawing 7.7 million viewers Tuesday at 10 p.m.

This makes it the best showing for the series on cable and broadcast ever, and BET's most-watched telecast.

The comedy, created by Mara Brock Akil, was canceled by the CW after three seasons in May 2009, averaging 2.1 million. BET picked it up last year.

New series Let's Stay Together debuted to 4.4 million viewers at 11 p.m.
