BET's 'Being Mary Jane' slides again in second week

BET's first original scripted drama, "Being Mary Jane," may be a solid performer for the network, but its initial ratings have not been encouraging.

The second episode of the series, which stars Gabrielle Union as a successful cable news personality with a messy personal and family life, attracted 2.8 million viewers Tuesday, according to Nielsen -- a drop of more than 15% from the premiere episode, which drew 3.3 million viewers.

The debut installment had already dropped from the more than 4 million viewers who tuned in to the show's movie-length pilot, which aired last May.

The series was created by Mara Brock Akil ("The Game") and is directed by her husband Salim Akil.
