Cast: Russell Harrise, Kolby Harrise, Brandon Smith, Kristina Smith, Anthony Thompson, LaToya Thompson.
Official Description: Detroit is on the rise and so are the people. It’s a city where Black culture is strong. Three couples and longtime family friends want to show the world that Detroit is more than just grit, abandoned factories and 8 Mile Road. This reemerging city is all about family, friendship, business, excellence and of course, love and marriage. Love & Marriage Detroit will center on a group of African American families with deep ties to Detroit who have decided to stay in the city and prove they can provide the best lives possible for their families in this community on a comeback. Russell and Kolby Harris, Brandon and Kristina Bowman Smith, and Anthony and Dr. LaToya Thompson will star in the series. In the premiere season, secrets and past deeds haunt the couples as relationship cracks are exposed, and issues surrounding faith, resentment and broken lines of communication are tackled head on.
Understanding TV ratings
All ratings posted are live-plus-same-day numbers provided by Nielsen.
“A Nielsen rating goes by percentage. In regards to a national television show, such as something on NBC, if a program receives a Nielsen rating of 15, it means that 15 percent of the public participating in the ratings service watched the television show. This means the other 85 percent either watched something else or didn’t watch television at all.”
