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.

    I must say that after DVR-ing the House of Payne and settling back to watch the final episodes, I felt cheated. Made me kinda sorry I ever started. Like some other viewers I also relished the fact that Ms. Ella and at times Curtis, CJ and Janine and others were able to offer some truths and hope while we walk through challenges in our own lives. I don't understand your strategy of ending the series like this...the season maybe...because then we are allowed to hope for reconcilliation ... Now it just feels like another mistake...soap opera misunderstandings, death of a marriage, a tragedy. Disappointed and crushed

    Tyler, I love all your movies and I love House of Payne and Meet the Browns. Please don't cancel House of Payne. This is a show that many people loved. I also hate the way you ended the season. You could do another season changing that because you can see a lot of people are disappointed by that. As a fan, I feel let down. Please reconsider bringing House of Payne back. I love the cast and I really hoped Miranda and Calvin would stay together. They were such a cute couple and a good match for each other despite the difficult times in their marriage.

    Tyler, please bring back House of Payne. This show is 10 times better than For Better or Worse. When you ended this show, it felt like my family moved out of town! Please bring it back.

    You and the other writers need to come up with some more of the House of Payne. This show touched a lot of people because you kept it real, with real life things. I didn't like they way it ended.

    What is wrong with the world? How can HOP be cancelled?? That was the funniest, cleanest and most heartwarming show on the tube. Most of the episodes the whole family could watch. Me and my hubby used to plan a little at home date time to watch the HOP episodes on demand or on Fridays. I just cannot believe that the show is over. WE WANT MORE HOP NOW!!!!

    I am a fan of all your movies. I must agree with the others who posted their comment on the cancellation of the House of Payne. There are lots of tv sitcom we can be watching but they do not peek my interest. House of Payne make you laugh (so funny) make you cry and feel sad. This show cover all the basis. There is only a few show that I watch faithful. The House of Payne is my number one show. I am 60 years old and when I am bored I can always look at a house of Payne rerun on On Demand. But now that the show is cancel I am sadden. I hope some tv station pick it up and you continue to write more exciting story lines for House of Payne. Some show should end but not House of Payne. The story line can go on and on. The children are growing up (story line) , Calvin finding a job and changing his life (story line), I don't care if Calvin and Miranda get back together I can see him moving on to something better (you snooze you lose) another story line. Like I say don't stop now. I see many more shows to cone. Please Tyler Perry let your creative juices flow. I know you can.

    God bless the day you were born Mr Tyler. You are a blessing to our generation. I watch all your movies and tv shows and they have changed me so much as an individual. The themes are very solid and what we need in this time and age where everything is going haywire. theres something to always bring us back and remind us of how blessed we are, no matter how rough the road seems. You are a great man, May the Lord bless your works. The best is yet to come for you,thats quite obvious, your path would continually shine on and on. Another thing i pray for is for house of payne to come back with the major cast,including Jasmine. I love that show soo much... I pray tbs brings it back, i believe there is still more to be written thats why i could not believe it ended just like that. I almost cried when i realized it had ended. You got me hooked. Please look into it.....please please please
