Tired of waiting for a proposal from Joseph, Leslie has moved on to bigger and better things while staying focused on her career and her undying friendship with Angela. Keisha, Marcus’ ex- continues to cause a world of trouble for the group of friends and colleagues. And Jennifer and Todd are still as crazy as ever.

    I am a big fan of For Better or Worse. I am disappointed that the OWN channel does not allow their programs to air on the On Demand feature. When people work, we can't stay up all times of the night to watch the shows when they replay (also some people work days and evenings). I must admit to get the full effect, you have to watch more than once. Good luck with the new season!

    Hi Tyler, I trust you are doing well. I just watched a video clip about you in Potter's House and your $ 1 million donation for the youth program. The bible says when you do good to the left hand, the right hand should not know about it. I personally know that you are anointed, and God have blessed you with many gifts. Please let God continue to define you, because many would like to destroy you if they truly know who you are. I also know that Pastor TD Jakes is a father in the Lord to you. Please pray for him in private as well as giving your donations. I am saddened to read many negative comments about you and the Pastor. Much love from Ottawa. I hope to see you soon. Shalom.

    I was so thrilled to see FBOW back on for season 3...Now lets see if Leslie really goes through with marrying Chris...not sure yet.. I must say Keisha killed the 2 new episodes for me.. did not enjoy as much as I would have liked to... almost could not continue watching with her over the top attitude...both shows were to much about her..and not Leslie & Chris...

    Wish I could see the new episode online. I can go to the library and watch it on the computer. plus i work nights so i can not watch the show. I use to have cable but no longer could afford it. :(

  • Erica Chicago

    Still loving the show.Bring "House of Payne" to OWN,too.

  • Camellia Jonesboro, GA

    Watched the Season 3 premiere of FBOW and I enjoyed it. I'm glad Leslie came to her senses and married Chris. :) But I agree, Keisha has got to go! She is too much of a trouble-maker and I don't like the fact that her character is made into a gold-digger.

    Great show and i'm so sorry i am going to miss this season. I switched from comcast(due to its high prices to Fios). FIOS is no better... You pay for a package, but you have to subscribe to OWN. For cable prices now a days I feel this station should be part of the package. DISGUSTED WITH CABLE...

      Don't get rid of her Dru, just yet. The scene at the church was alot but when Angela busted her out at the hospital about the daughter NOT being Marcus' child I must admit, I didn't feel sorry for her. Probably because of how she behaved at the church and when she first arrived at the hospital. I bet Mr. Perry did this to her to humble her, we will see the old meddling Keisha soon I hope.

    • Dru #1878747

      Okay Bee, i hope things change because she was tap dancing on my last nerve. We'll see what Mr. Perry has in store for her.

    This show sucks. The timing is all off it's like watching a high school play. Horrible the laugh tracks is just over the top. The show should be call for worser not better, if there is even such a word.

      Tyler I support you and most blacks. But I have to be honest. This show is HORRIBLE!!! They are all over acting! The first 2 episodes of this season were completely insensitive to the fact that there was an injury and a man left standing at the alter. There was too much untimely laughing and Keisha...yeah...too much. Bring Meet the Browns and House of Payne. Those were great shows!!!

  • KJ Atlanta

    I really love the show. But unfortunately, I will not be able to enjoy it at this time. I am currently in the hospital and OWN does not make your shows available on demand or on it's website. Since I will be here for at least a couple of months, due to complications during my pregnancy, I will probably miss the season. :( I hope it is great!

  • AJ DC/MD

    I really want to like this show. I watched the marathon and the season premier today. It has great bones but it is too much. Too over the top. They need to pull back a bit. It can be a good comedy show without the constant slap happy one liners. Jennifer, and the intern definitely are just over board. Just my take.

  • gloria new york

    I am glad that For Better or Worse is returning. I really loved that show. Can't wait to watch the first show. Will Whitney Houston daughter Bobbi be returning? And I would like for the House of Pain to return. Love Curtis. But can you PLEASE do something about Meranda.
