Reports are circulating all over the internet that Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry will not be returning to their starring roles on BET hit series, The Game.  Word is that both were fired from the show by the show’s producers. 
Both Tia and Pooch took to Twitter to announce the news.
Here is what Tia wrote:
"Just wanted to let all my fans know that I will not be returning to The Game for season 6. It was an incredible run and I had lots of fun along the way. I am looking forward to my upcoming projects...the release of my book #OhBaby [today!]."
"Me and BET got love for each other… They are wrkin it out. I’m on a new showtime show “Ray Donovan” showtime said I can still do The Game…”
It’s just weird that a show would choose to write the main characters off.  I mean don’t get me wrong, the show has definitely gone downhill since its transition to BET.  It’s definitely not the same show.  I don’t know if it’s the fact that it’s on BET or the quality of writers is just not the same as it was when the show was on the CW.
Many of the people who fought to have this show moved to BET have been severely disappointed by the reincarnation on BET.  It definitely has not lived up to expectations, and I’m of the right mind to say just cancel the show already.
The damage has been done.  I’ll miss Tasha Mack and Jason Pitts, but the show is ruined for me.  This dismissal of Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry is just the final nail in an already finished coffin. 
This now offers a better understanding to the direction the show has taken as of late.  Melanie’s sudden need to do an internship at Johns Hopkins now makes sense since the characters are now being written off the show.
And here is what Pooch wrote on his Twitter feed:
