Tyler Perry's House of Payne is a comedy series about a multigenerational, working class family who experiences all of life's struggles with faith, love and most importantly humor. Pops, the uncle and head of the household, has his life and home turned upside down when an unexpected event forces his nephew, CJ, played by Allen Payne, and CJ's kids to move into the house, putting three generations under one roof.

This chaotic living situation takes its toll on cranky Pops, who is reluctant to have his routine disturbed. In addition to CJ's family, Pops and Ella's son, Calvin, a wise-cracking college kid with no money, hangs out at home which makes it impossible for Pops to have any peace and quiet. It soon becomes evident just how wide the generation gap is, as the family tries to find a way to coexist through all of life's hilarious ups and downs.

Putting the family back in family comedy, Tyler Perry's House of Payne tackles real life issues with very funny humor.

  • jesse

    I'm sorry but if the ending was miranda walking out on calvin then its a really bad ending worse ending then the sopranos ending because atleast the sopranos you had an idea of what happen here its like what .....what just happen we don't know the reason why she walked out I still like this show and I hope you bring it back .

    Great Directing. I buy, rent, borrow everything you've Shared. Thanks! Great Writing, SINGING, Great acting by everyone. I Hated the way you ended the Show w/ Miranda Leaving. Can we have a happily ever after. It may seem corny but I think we deserve it after admiring all of your works. You're such a great Writer, Producer, Actor, Employer, Talent Scout, Coach,Philanthropist, EXAMPLE Setter. This ending just doesn't do the actors justice or fit in w/ the spirit of past episodes. Can we atleast have an alternate ending since we can't erase the past. Thanks for Entertaining and Employing talented people. I wish Larry Leon Hamlin Could have seen all of your WORK. YOU WENT IN

    please get them all back together I hate that the show ended. especially with Miranda. wanting a divorce, they make a good couple.go Tyler luv ya

      I would be curious to see the outcome of Calvin and Miranda. Some couples turn out to be great friends after divorce, or even they reconcile and move out of town and have them as reoccurring . My marriage got better when we moved away from in-laws. The storyline can go any way if the show is brought back.

    Hey Tyler Perry I along with everyone else would like to see a new season of the house of Payne it's was the best show in America when it was airing I still watch the replays every morning hoping to see something about a new season getting ready to air. P.S. bring back a new season

  • Shameka T. Enid, MS

    Please, please, please bring back House of Payne!!! I really enjoyed the show and can relate to many of the storylines that you presented in the show. Even my four year old daughter LOVES House of Payne!!! Tyler please consider bringing it back!!! PLEASE!!!!!

    I agree with the fans that Tyler should consider bringing back House of Payne and Meet the Browns to the OWN network. I would like Love thy Neighbor a lot better if there was a better supporting cast. Ms. Hattie is extremely funny but the cast are not good actors and actresses. I think that Floyd's character undermines his acting ability. The show needs a different set of characters with chemistry and better story lines to complement Ms. Hattie and Floyd. I also would like to see better story lines on For Better or For Worse. Last year season was a lot better than this year since coming to the OWN network. I love the characters on the show and they have good chemistry, but the story lines are very weak. I love Tyler Perry and Oprah. I want to see more black sitcoms that convey positive messages that will enhance our race.

      I would love to see House of Payne come back on OWN. I thought it was a great show but I Tyler Perry needs to hire a writing team or even hire some consultants, maybe he could put David and Tamela Mann on as consultants. Tyler is a great writer and had great episodes but more reality needed to be added in to the comedy. For example; Janine being a recovered addict. He could have had added in the things needed to stay clean. Some real drug addicts have to go to meetings for the rest of their lives maintain sobriety. My wife and I have a blended family. They did not have to be so much drama with Calvin and Miranda. My wife and I may have had some moments with baby mama or daddy but we have way more good moments than bad.

    I Love Love house of payne Please bring it back!!!!!!!!!

  • Keya Va

    House of Payne and Meet the browns are the BEST two shows. I was trying to get into Love Thy neighbor because love Hattie BUT just like most of the characters that go from the play stage to the television they aren't as funny anymore. The needed stronger characters to match Hattie's style, her daughter was weak and grandson was wimpy not likely to ever be funny. House of Payne was a REAL family and so was meet the browns. Brown was the exception he stayed funny even on television. Please bring BOTH house of Payne and Meet the browns back, bring them to OWN!!!...and we can all do without for better or for worst, Angela can pop in and out of a few episodes on another show but to hear her for 30 min on her own series (turns channel) lol ;)

  • tae winterville, nc
