    Tyler, I have been a fan of yours for years. I watch For Better or Worse every Wed. night, and love it. If it has your name on it, I'm there . Love you. Doris ( an old white lady ) Is that ok to say?

    I love this show. The actors/actresses are phenomenal. I appreciate the good role model qualities and the levels of self-control these characters demonstrate as the plot thickens. Leslie hasn't mentioned her run-in with Keisha at the lawyers office to Angela. Marcus is trying to mind his own business. The integrity of these people are apparent. Jennifer always snaps us back to reality. She is the kind of friend we all should have, including Angela and Leslie. Joseph the humbled ex-boyfriend, Richard the naïve CEO, and Keisha the typical gold digger. Todd our physical comedian, "Cat-like reflexes dog", takes the seriousness out keeping us laughing to the end. Even with Angela's sassy ways I would still rate the show as Christian friendly. Thank you TP for another great show. Love Love

    I know this is supposed to be entertainment but Keisha's character is so over the top that it is no longer entertaining. Yes...I know that there are women out there that does this type of stuff but character is a little over the top. It also feels as if she is evolving into the main character. I would rather not see that much of her. Love Marcus and Angela. Todd is ridiculous and makes me want to turn the channel (as well as Keisha). Please find Jennifer a man. It's clear to see that Leslie is still in love with Joseph. If she does not work things out with Chris then don't let her get with Joseph right away, he should have to earn her love, make him work hard to get her back.

      I keep watching the show hoping it will get better but is keeps getting worse. I am sorry to say but the acting and the script are just plain horrible. I want to love this show so bad but I can not get past the ridiculousness.

    Love the show, but really tired of Keisha and her drama. But she do act like some of the women nowadays all that DRAMA. Please write something different next week that doesn't involve Richard and Keisha.

  • PJ

    What is happening with the writing the past few weeks?! The story lines, acting...it's awful. I want to continue watching, but this is painful.

    I love Tyler Perry and what he represents. I'm a big fan, but this show is driving me bananas. I keep watching the show and hoping things will get better, but tonight's show is the final straw. Keisha's antics in episode 3 14 are ridiculous. It is too much. Please get rid of Joseph, Leslie, Keisha and Richard. I hate these characters. They are ruining the show. I think the idea of the show is good. I love Angela and Marcus. I even like Jennifer's character, but I almost hate the other characters. It gets worse for me by the week. I'm done. I still love you TP! I just don't like this show.

    This thing with Keisha is really getting out of control. It's getting to the point where it isn't even funny anymore and is getting unbearable to watch. Please do something with Todd.

    I have been watching this show since it started and have always thought it was a little too silly for me but I have kept watching it. This new season is a little more than I can bear so I have deleted it from my weekly recordings. Angela's character has drastically changed. She's gone from one extreme to the next as far as her relationship with Marcus. She went from being loud and not trusting a bone in his body to being overly whiny and sappy. Is there no happy medium? Leslie's character has become confused and indecisive and Todd is just totally ridiculous. He used to be funny but now he is just irritating. All the other characters seem to have remained the same. I enjoy most of Tyler Perry's work but I guess I am at a point in my life where I cannot deal with the extreme silliness. I started with House of Payne and The Browns. But after a while, they got to be too much and I had to stop watching.

    Love your shows so much! EACH AND EVERYONE! Its definitely hard to pick a favorite. God Bless you.

    Tyler, I enjoy your work and as well as the storyline in FBOW. I think the show would be better off not portrayed as a comedy and agree with the comments to kill the laugh track. I can watch an entire show without laughing. I strongly recommend you either get rid of Jennifer and Todd or re-write their story lines. Since I record the shows, I fast forward the parts with Jennifer and Todd. These segments are too long and not funny at all. I enjoy the relationships and situations created with Marcus and Angela, Joseph and Leslie/Chris, and Keisha and Richard. In regards to Keisha's role, there are women out there that live up to that reputation. No it's not flattering but it is reality. For too long us brothers have beat the drum that you paint us all as dogs. That too is not flattering but in many instances that is a reality too. So I am fine with equal time.

  • mel

    The last few episodes been terrible . I don't want to be negative but the show is going in the wrong direction. I don't understand why they trying so hard to make this sitcom a comedy it's over kill with that awful laugh track. Every time someone speak there goes the laugh track smh I thought the Leslie/Chris/Joseph story line was great but they killed before it really started. now for better imo has become unwatchable..
