I Need Your Help

This message is to all my folks, especially my die-hard folks, the ones I call the “Board Members” - you know who you are :).  By now I’m sure you all know that I have moved my TV shows to OWN and on May 28th and 29th I have a two night premiere. On Tuesday night, my new hot drama THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS starts. I’m telling you, I put it all in this show. I not only want you to watch it but we need you to watch it for several reasons. The biggest reason is this is a fresh group of faces and I am beyond excited to see them get their shot. I make you these promises, this SHOW WILL HOOK YOU!!!  I KNOW IT! Then on Wednesday night, which used to be my original night of TV, I’m going back to it with a brand new show called LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. It stars a bunch of new faces including the two folks I said I would give a sitcom to, Mamma Hattie (Patrice Lovely) and Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr). They are so excited and this show is so funny. So Tuesday get your drama on and Wednesday get your funny on OWN, OK?  

I remember when HOUSE OF PAYNE started how people tried to kill it before it started, but because you watched it and were there, that show went on into the history books with 254 episodes. Thank you for that. You did that through the grace of God. So in less than ten days THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS and LOVE THY NEIGHBOR will start on OWN.  I hope you are planning to watch them. Thank you for helping me help someone else. I wish you could see how excited these cast members are. They have been waiting to see their dreams come true and you know how much I love to be used by God to make that happen.  You’ll see, you’ll see.

And FYI, all of you FOR BETTER OR WORSE fans, it’s coming back with a new season to OWN as well. And all you HOUSE OF PAYNE fans, hold on, I’m trying to work on something..LOL, but we’ve got to launch these new shows first, OK?

Let me know your thoughts.

Many blessings and love to you.

    Tyler I will be watching. Let me say this I hope these shows will not conflict in time with other shows. Also can the shows when you miss them, can you make sure they are available on demand right away. I know uverse has issues they are slow as h*** but comcast seems to be okay with posting shows. I watch and I follow but sometimes I have things that come up and I can't watch but I don't want to miss out on any shows. I'm glad For Better For Worse is coming back I want to know what happen after the accident. There are to much of a gap for shows to return. This is mostly what I watch because I don't watch to many other shows, kind of color struck if you know what I mean. There shows are boring and have no substance. They are very helpful in taking your mind off of what you are going through at least for a hour or so. So thankyou for that. Hopefully since you are on OWN we want have to many short seasons as you had on TBS seem like soon as they start the show was at the finale what is that? LOL I'm just saying.

I will be looking forward to your new releases, and please tell us that you will be doing more movies like Alex Cross. I just loved it, and cannot stop talking about. Even purchased the DVD.
