WE tv 'Super Serving' Urban Audiences with Introduction of Mary Mary 

For the corporate executives at WE tv, bringing Mary Mary to the small screen to star in their own reality show, has nothing to do with ministry. This is no surprise.. Television is all about getting ratings up to rake ad dollars in. That’s why on Thursdays beginning March 29, only the two fly gospel chicks being featured on the reality tv series can ensure that Jesus is well-represented.

Last Fall, the network told The Hollywood Reporter that featuring the two gospel singers is a part of an overall larger strategy to “super serve” their growing urban audience.

Mary Mary is a great fit for WE tv,” said Kim Martin, president & general manager of WE tv. “Erica and Tina are modern women balancing careers and family and doing it in the spotlight. Their issues are the same as so many women today, and this show will capture the entertaining ups and downs of life that they face on a daily basis.”

The show comes on the heels of the second season run of Braxton Family Values.

I'm still not sold on the idea of Christians doing reality TV. I'm not really feeling that to be honest, but hey. We'll see.

I don't watch reality TV. I don't care who's on it. Point blank period.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEve

I like these ladies well enough but I don't thing this was a good move for their career IMO

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterT. Davis

I don't know about this one. I was listening to the radio and a debate was going on about whether gospel ladies should enter into the reality TV fray. I can't be sure this is a wise choice. I just don't know about that.

I don't know about this. I don't think anyone will know until we have had a chance to see it.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterOrian

I'm reading some of the comments and I think we have to give it a chance first. There's no way of knowing what will be in it without seeng it.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDacia

I don't do reality tv.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDD

From the preview clip I saw it looks like a lot of drama and arguing. What was that about?

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRay

When I first heard it I was thinking WHAT?! But now I want to give it at least one watch to see.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterButterfly Mommy

Ooooh Eve, that sound a little "Tamar-ish" (point blank period.!). Sure you're not watching reality TV?!! LOL!

I plan to watch it.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTomeka

@"Sure you're not watching?" LOL! "BOOM!" *Twists lips* Too funny

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLola

Mary Mary has been catching flack for I don't know how long about almost everything they do. This is not going to be any different. I think they will be a great addition to the reality tv line up. At least they are showing a positive example of black families. I think we can at least get happy about that. I'll be tuning in to support the lovely ladies.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLady J

I will be watching it.

I'm sure it will be a very far cry from the average reality shows that put women in a bad light.
