BET (Black Entertainment Television) is a Viacom-owned cable network based in UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC. It was one of the first channels to specialize in programming for African-Americans. The network was launched on January 25, 1980, by its founder, Robert L. Johnson. For years it primarily showcased music videos by black artists (with a strong leaning towards hip-hop and pop-R&B), public interest programs such as Teen Summit, and even had a nightly news broadcast. Nowadays, however, it primarily shows syndicated reruns, B-movies and reality shows, with 106 & Park as its lone music video program. A notable exception is TheGame, which is its highest-rated program and one of the few first-run shows left on the channel. On Sundays, it shows gospel oriented programming such as ''Sunday Best''. Since 2001, it has hosted the BET Awards, to honor black contributions to the media and sports.

Many black leaders, such as Creator/BillCosby, have accused BET of promoting black stereotypes and corrupting the youth, and because of this, it now censors music videos with inappropriate content.
