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.

    Im totally disappointed in Tyler Perry for the way he ended the House of Pain. How could you end the only African-American show with a horrible ending. We already have very little to look forward too as it is on tv. Be real, you could have given us fans some hope and a positive outlook on troubled relationship. You did good by CJ and Jannine. Why not Calvin and Miranda. Dont they deserve happiness. You have lost a true fan!!!

    I was so upset to set the House of Payne series end the way it did. It just seemed like the creativity ran out and the writers did not know what eles to do. I understand about wanting it to be as realistic as possible, but having it end with Marianda walking out on Calvin was just disappointing!!!

      I agree. I was shocked by the ending and keep checking to make sure it is actually over.

    Please, Please, Please, Bring back House of Payne. I noticed the way you ended the show there is a chance you can bring it back. I work 2nd shift but make sure my dvr is set to tape every show. I know you are very, very busy (see you in Cleveland on Nov 15) but I still hope and pray you will bring the family back. Yes, For Better or Worse is good, but doesn't compare to the reality that you showed on House of Payne.

    Idk. I read somewhere that he might bring it back at one point. Hopefully he will because he knows how upset everyone is about the ending. It was a horrible way to end a series of an amazing show.

    What?!!!! The Show has ended?!!!! I obviously missed the memo cus this is me anxiously waiting for the next season, then I come of the TP site and read the comments :-( Why, why why?!!! :-( ok.. i'm being dramatic... but seriously this is (or was) a really good show with story lines people can actually relate with. why would u end it? what is it all the really good black tv series having wack endings, and just leaving viewers in unbearable suspense (gush I'm being really OTT aren't I?lol) but seriously... Mohesha, Steve harvey show, Girlfriends, and now this one? why don't they end like FRIENDS did eh? now that was an ending worth celebrating! u guys shouldn't just get people sucked in and just leave them hanging... not fair... Now the logical side of me: - If it's something that had to be done, fair enough ... business is business... lol

    I didnt have cable for a number of years in the middle of the show's existance. When i finally got my cable back I DVRed it and realized i had about 70 episodes to catch up on. I lost my job and suddenly had the time. It was such a shock to find out the show ended.

    I have nothing to do on Friday nights now. They were dedicated to House of Payne. I can't believe to did us like that!!! We need another season, we need closure. You can't end the entire show like that... What's going to happen to the kids? You can do another season with Calvin & Miranda struggles as seperated parents.

  • Kahlil White

    Bring bacK House Of Payne!!!please

  • Michelynne Virginia

    I thought I missed the series finale and I went to the TBS website and there was episodes that I have before. I wanted to know what happened with Calvin and Miranda, just like Meet the Browns I thought the last episode would have been with the family moving on to different things. My Friday fun is no more. Please bring them back.
