Rap star Lil’ Kim may be in jail, but she’s still a big draw on television.
Black Entertainment Television’s March 9 debut of its new reality series, Lil’ Kim: Countdown to Lockdown, garnered a 1.7 Nielsen Media Research household rating -- a record performance for a BET series debut, according to the network.
The six-part series -- which tracks the final 14 days of freedom for the hip-hop diva before she entered prison on a perjury conviction -- was also the highest-rated cable original series among black households thus far in 2006, according to the network.
