    Hi Tyler, How are you? I would just like to say I love your show For Better Or Worse, And I hope that you have a season 4 in 2014, You can't just leave me hanging like this LOL!!.. The suspense on Leslie and Joseph hopefully saving her is going to keep me In limbo until next year, and Richard and Keisha I hope he gets a divorce and she gets NOTHING!! And poor Jennifer when are you gonna bring her man In the picture, And Todd a female he Is so annoying, he's worse than an old lady In the window watching her neighbors houses/apts. and talking phone telling all their business LOL, cause he know everybody's business. Anyway I love you Tyler you are an amazing actor, writer and producer. Maybe one day I will get my wish and meet you, cause I am pretty comedic myself.

    Mr. Perry. I thank you for all your contributions to the Arts. they all relate so much to our everyday life. Some are so tense that they are to hard to view. They remind us of our true lives, ones we don't want to remember or admit, "For Better or Worse" reminds me of so many characters that have been in my life. My favorite character is "Tod". He brings a quality of humor which is rare and I feel he ties the the 3 characters together. The beauty salon and all are very representative of Black culture. "Leslie" is one beautiful lady and a good actor also. And of course Angie ties all the ladies together. Please do not leave this series vacant for too long. Thanks for all your work. John

    I love this show! I think you have done an excellent job. Every character on the show exsist in the African American community and it's nice to see them all come together in a comedy.

    Used to love the show waited so long to see it again. Seems like just a filler now and the last show left me not wanting to come back just disappointed. Love your work Tyler but sad in this.

      Good-bye!! What show should they be on? This show has aproximately 10 people in the cast. The whole show is not bad because of 2 people that you are not interested in.

    • Tanya Sacramento, CA #1899609

      The last message was for "Just Me". Sorry!

  • Just Me Los Angeles, California

    This is the last season for me. I no longer like the show because of Jennifer and Todd. Good-bye Tyler Perry until you can rewrite this show and put Jennifer and Todd on the back burner way way back on the burner. I'M DONE BYE

  • Mzbruce US

    I ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ the show and can't wait until the next season

  • Bryant United States

    I'm not sure about all of the negative comments but, this show is OFF THE HOOK! Mr. Perry this is a must see and I can't wait until the new season starts! Everytime my wife and I look at a new episode of "For Better or Worse" and "The Haves and Have Nots" we say the same thing - "Tyler Perry makes me sick! why does he have to be soo good at what he does". To all the negative commenters...the ratings speak for themselves. You don't get 3 seasons because Oprah likes you...Mr. Perry put in the work and I am greatly appreciative for the image of the Black American he promotes. While I may not agree with EVERYTHING I do believe that his writing is what we need.

    It's finally over!!!! The season is over, no more commercials, re-runs, and (we hope) no more shows!!! Thank you thank you thank you! I didn't watch the program but the commercials were killing me. My biggest question is why did it take so long?

    • Gene #1899145

      Bad news! "Haves and Have Nots" is coming back to TV. Really??? Now I have to watch those stupid commercials. I think I'm going to have to give up on OWN. There are plenty of other channels but I was really rooting for Oprah.

    • Melisa #1900720

      That's marketing :-) we need to come up with technology. We all need to work together WE CAN DO IT!!!!!

    • Melisa #1900801

      YEA! That's what I'm talking about Alex ,Tonia, mst, Lynahq Your doing seems we can't give up on them they have good things coming Jennifer and Todd Will surprise there selves. To Many Commercials?? GOD BLESS YOU

    I am a person who is all in for African American shows, however, sometimes I find it hard to enjoy this show. This is why, too many laugh tracks which stalls the actors (seems like they pause for the laughter) , some scenes are too long. I know it is a comedy, but I think the flow could be so much better. I love Tyler Perry and all of his projects, but this one could use a little tweaking. I don't want the show to end, just improve. I'm not a film critic, just a very observant viewer.

    • Alex Ohio #1898637

      Tonia! This is what I have been saying for a while! The scenes drag out too long because of this. I don't remember the first two seasons being like that. And where's MJ???

    • Neva #1900183

      I'm with Tonia. The show has taken a wrong turn. I agree that some scenes are awkward and too long. Also Jennifer became a 'dummy' this season. Her character used to balance out the cast, but now she seems like a pet project for the mean girls. Todd's character also needs to change. And while I don't want to put anyone out of a job, but does it seem like the Joseph character would be better played by someone else...maybe Coby Bell?...

  • megan oklahoma

    I was wondering when for better or worse is going to be available to buy on dvd

  • Mst

    Richard should use the bank ATM video camera and get Keisha for ADULTRY!!!

  • Kim Virginia
