‘How High 2’s 4/20 Premiere Draws Ratings Highs For MTV
The 420 Day premiere of How High 2 was clearly a high for MTV. The movie sequel to the stoner classic drew a 0.64 rating in P18-49 and 801,000 total viewers in Live+same day, giving MTV its highest-rated Saturday in six years, according to the network and Nielsen.

The solid numbers came on the heels of MTV’s seventh consecutive quarter of ratings growth. The movie, which aired at 9 Pm Et/Pt April 20, outperformed the time period average by 133% and dominated social media throughout the weekend as the No. 1 most social non-sports program.

To capitalize on 420 (Weed Day), MTV’s Too High to Watch How High 2 stunt — hosted by cast members DC Young Fly and DeRay Davis — aired throughout the day with games, trivia and sneaks inside a marathon of all three films in the Friday franchise and the original How High movie from 18 years ago that starred Method Man and Redman.

‘How High 2’ Updates Stoner Classic With New Gen Stars Lil Yachty and D.C. Young Fly
The 2001 comedy “How High” is a classic of the stoner genre. Starring rappers Method Man and Redman as Silas and Jamal, they play average students who turn Ivy League. After smoking a special strain of marijuana, the two ace their college entrance exams and wind up at Harvard. Taking the college life in stride, when their supply of supernatural grade marijuana runs dry, the true hijinks begin.

Eighteen years — or a full generation — later, the franchise is being revived by Universal 1440 Entertainment, which naturally chose April 20 for its premiere on MTV. The hip-hop centric plot centers around best buds Roger, played by Lil Yachty, and Calvin, played by D.C. Young Fly, Atlanta “potrepreneurs” who go on “a magical weed-filled journey to fund their on-demand munchies delivery start-up.”

‘Rel’ Review: Oversimplified Fox Sitcom Still Has Plenty of Room to Capitalize on Lil Rel Howery’s Talents

‘Rel’ Review: Oversimplified Fox Sitcom Still Has Plenty of Room to Capitalize on Lil Rel Howery’s Talents
If Lil Rel Howery’s last series “The Carmichael Show” was about a family trying to break free from the usual sitcom mold, “Rel” finds a group of people being thrust into one. Once the on-screen goofy foil for a brother who mostly had his life together, now Howery is starring in a show of his own as the character all the other people in his orbit are bouncing off. “Rel” has the germ of something subversive at its core, but the opening episode finds the show attacking a basic comedic premise with workmanlike passability.

Howery plays Rel, a down-on-his-luck divorcee, trying to rebuild his life after his wife leaves him, taking their children with her. “Rel” wastes no time dunking its title character into the requisite sitcom rebound cycle, using this pilot episode to get him back into the dating pool. And wouldn’t you know it, the first
