    Take Out that awful laugh track

    The show has too many fake laughs. The script is predictable and boring, just like Have and Have Nots.

  • ABW

    Please do not kill the Leslie and Chris story. I am so tired of Joseph. Help him grow up without Leslie.

      I am so with you ABW. Joseph does need to grow up. I am hoping IF Chris and Leslie don't work out it won't have anything to do with Joseph. I also want them (Leslie and Chris) to at least last the whole season.

    My only problem with the show is that awful laugh track. The first season of For better was great I viewed the show as a drama sitcom and luv every minute of it.. Just removethe laugh track please... I really like Leslie with Chris but it looks like she's. Going going to back to Joseph. :(

    I absolutely love Todd. He adds a different kind of funny. He makes me laugh so hard. Please leave him in the show

    • Beejcee Missouri #1880386

      I like Todd also. He was introduced to us as an intern to the guys as a favor to Todd's dad who gave them the loan to start the business. So he is young and I can tolerate his silliness. I don't like Todd and Jennifer's humor together. She is too old to behave the way she does, maybe Todd's interaction should be with Jennifer's daughter being they are probably playing around the same age. Not sure about everyone else but my problems with the Todd character all center around his interaction with Jennifer.

    Please please please reduce "Todd's" role on this show. He gets way too much camera time and he's not funny. It minimizes the concept that the show was founded on as he's a single man butting into married couple's private affairs. This would never happen amongst black couples today. I'm watching an episode now and here he is again...sigh...annoying. I hope it gets better as I eventually began to look forward to the TBS episodes. Believed it had to get better with OWN. But if Todd's role continues, I'll be forced to back burner FBOFW.

    I love this show but the laugh track sucks. Can you do this show and any sitcom without the laugh track? It actually disrupts the comedy.

  • Calalily Tennessee

    So disappointed in the new shows. The bad language is sickening and is ruining the show. The boring scenes that go on and on with the characters Todd, the guys and Keisha. It appears you are trying to take up time and it is so annoying that I had to speed up most of it. Always liked this show but if this is what it is going to be about, then I won't be watching.

  • Beejcee Missouri

    Sure got that right! You and De Young. Todd I can tolerate to a point because he has been introduced to us as an intern, so he is young and silly and has room to grow. But Jennifer on the other hand has 2 children and one of them a young adult in college. She needs to chill! Keisha on the other hand is going to come back a bit humbled I hope since Angela busted her to Richard about the daughter.

    I am a huge fan of your work, however, I am very disappointed with the Todd and Jennifer characters on For Better or Worse. They are overkill! I want you to be a continued success but I am concerned with how their characters are written in the script. You are far far better than "slapstick comedy" and cheap laughs and that is what their characters have become. Please continue to be true to your talent of keeping it real. Keshia's story lines don't bother me because if you have ever worked or been exposed to family law "Gold Diggers" are alive and well and your stories about Keshia are spot on! However, Jennifer and Todd are annoying. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need ideas!

    The audience laugh track is VERY MUCH ANNOYINGLY STAGED. Please change it or get rid of it! It makes the production appear to be LOW BUDGET and UNPROFESSIONAL' Please attend to this issue ASAP!!!
