Fans ready for the return of 'The Game'

Despite a cancellation, fans figured out how to play "The Game."

After outcry over the former CW series being canceled in 2009, BET decided to bring the show back with new episodes starting tonight. For those unfamiliar with it, "The Game" is a spin-off of another former popular African-American sitcom, "Girlfriends."

Both were created by writer Mara Brock Akil and both were the subject of major disappointment among their fans upon cancellation. The ensemble cast includes former "Sister, Sister" star Tia Mowry, Pooch Hall and Wendy Raquel Robinson.
