WE GOT TO DO
BETTER airs weekdays at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on BET.
"We Got to Do Better" is an entertaining, tongue-in-cheek
examination of the good, the bad and the ugly of Black popular culture.
Utilizing comedy, man-on-the-street interviews, video clips, pictures
and music, “We Got to Do Better” aims to shine a spotlight on
prevalent images in pop culture and examine what role they play in
American lifestyle. “We Got to Do Better” goes where most shows fear
to tread. As host Charlie Murphy guides viewers through shaking booties,
thug life, baby-mama drama and pimped-out high schoolers, “We Got to
Do Better” will explore what these images really mean to all of us.
Cutting edge, original, relevant and irreverent, “We Got to Do
Better” is like the traffic accident you can’t look away from.
Viewers will laugh. They'll cry. They'll think. They'll learn, and
hopefully they'll recognize they've GOT to do better."
