Preliminary overnight ratings for Brandy’s new comedy Zoe Ever After are looking pretty good. The BET original series pulled in just over a million viewers and garnered a 1.0 in demo. Those numbers would ordinarily render a network show dead on arrival, but in cable land, especially BET, those numbers are actually worth celebrating.
It should also be noted that BET made the first episode of Zoe Ever After available for viewing online just days before its premiere. I wondered why the network would do that, as most likely it would affect the show’s premiere numbers. But based on what it takes to be renewed on BET, I can only assume they knew what they were doing.
