"Second Generation Wayans" has been added to BET's lineup

BET has added four new shows to its lineup, ranging from the quirky Wayans family to uncovering the mysteries behind homicides, Deadline was the first to reveal.

Deadline also exclusively reported that the network has picked up "The Game" for a sixth season and "Let's Stay Together" for a third. For more on the renewals, click over to Deadline.

As for the new shows, according to The Hollywood Reporter, BET has added "Second Generation Wayans" to its lineup. The comedy is based on the nephews of Shawn and Marlon Wayans, who appeared on "In Living Color" and starred on The WB's "The Wayans Brothers" from 1995-1999. "Second Generation Wayans" follows actors Craig Wayans, Damien Dante Wayans, and George O. Gore II as they attempt to carve out their own paths in Hollywood.

"The Mathis Project" is a docu-series that will center on neighborhoods with unsolved homicides. Judge Greg Mathis will attempt to get members of the community to open up about what they know, and ultimately work to bring justice to families who lost a loved one.

On a lighter note, "House Husbands" will make a series out of the wildly successful skit performed at the 2011 BET Awards, which focuses on the unbearable aspects of being a celebrity's husband. Kevin Hart will star in the comedy, which spoofs every "Housewives" show on TV.

As for late night TV, former CNN anchor T.J. Holmes has the right idea. In the spirit of Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert and Bill Maher, "Don't Sleep With T.J. Holmes" will cover issues that affect the public and provide an entertaining musical performance or two.
