Despite the ongoing success of Starz’ long-running hit Power and the positive response to its two recent spinoffs, Power Book II: Ghost, and Power Book III: Raising Kanan, it appears that mainstream TV media isn’t paying much attention to the shows that are looping in millions of Black viewers every Sunday night.
Sacha Penn, executive producer and showrunner of Raising Kanan recently called out the mainstream entertainment media for their lack of attention to his show. Despite being one of the Network’s most-viewed programs, just behind Outlander and its predecessor Ghost, very few entertainment-focused publications have included episode reviews in their content.

“As Raising Kanan‘s first season ends and BMF’s season begins, I feel compelled to point out that, other than the NY Post and New York Magazine, not a single mainstream media publication has reviewed either series,” he wrote on a September 26 Instagram post. “Not the New York Times, The Washington Post, The L.A. Times…across the country. Not even trade publications like The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.”
