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

    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.

    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

    Keisha is a mess.

  • geneva baltimore

    It agreat show i like all the charcters some of this is real life

  • Hope4u2 Richmond,VA

    Trying to locate where I can get the football art in the show behind the desk of Richard. Thanks

  • Just Me Los Angeles

    I love the show but Jennifer and Todd is ruining the show for me. They really need to tune it down for real.

    • Lynnah California #1896648

      That is exactly my feeling a** well, especially Todd. This character is a nuisance and takes away from the others real acting. Jennifer is always frowning and omplaining about something.

    • Lynnah California #1896659

      Sorry I did not mean Jennifer (Jennifer & Keisha roles are probably what keeps this show going) I meant Leslie, although i can definitely stand her over the Todd character. I get so tired of hearing Joseph saying "shut up" to him. My husband just expressed the same thing to me tonight. This could really be a good show like it was at the beginning if you get rid of all the stupid Todd lines and laugh tracks.

  • carolyn reno, nevada

    my husband and I enjoy the show, but we miss House of Payne, we were left hanging, we so enjoyed the characters, but one question........WHEN IS KIESHA GOING TO GET HER COMEUPANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is a horrid being!

    • Lynnah California #1896651

      Now Ms Ella and Curtis Payne were never boring. although Janine needed some acting classes and the little girl Jasmine was waaay to grown for her age.

  • Rere CA

    I was sad that Leslie got an annulment. I wish that she could have stayed married... I don't really like her with Joesph... I don't know... And Keisha... uhhh... she gets on my nerves... I know she has to because that's how she is but.
