Don’t Sleep! Hosted By T.J. Holmes Is Upgraded To A Hour-Long Weekly Show On BET



The viewers (and a lot of salivating women) will now have the pleasure of seeing one of their favorite political hosts for a full hour every week.

DON’T SLEEP! hosted by T.J. Holmes has now expanded to a one hour weekly format allowing for a more in depth conversation on the issues and events affecting the African-American community…

DON’T SLEEP! is now featured on Wednesday nights at 11:00 p.m.

Award-winning journalist and host T. J. Holmes offered his thoughts on the new change:

 “I am excited to have more time to delve into the topics that affect our community, content that will ignite, inspire, educate and empower us as a passionate collective and community. The election proved people of color are a coveted segment within society with voices that deserve and require platforms and time to be heard so resolve and solutions can be implemented towards greater change.”

“We are very proud of the show, and the platform it has provided for the nations’ brightest thought leaders,” said Stephen G. Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials at BET Networks. “We love the passion of DON’T SLEEP!’s dedicated audience and hope that the weekly appointment viewing of the show will grow that audience.”
