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.

    Please Mr. Perry, HOP has to return. I appreciate your effort with For Better or Worse but it does not have the same family qualities and values as HOP. Even more, to end the show in such a open ended way was unfair to your fans. I have and will continue to support your movies and tv shows but For Better Or Worse is not my cup of tea...I won't be watching. Please Please bring back HOP.

    Please please please bring back a continuation of Calvin and Miranda's story! The House of Payne is one of my favourite sitcoms and it would be great to bring it back! I mean shoot, the last episode had my mouth drop open and my shocked that Miranda shut down the mood and declared a divorce. I really hope you bring it back Tyler...at least another series with Calvin and Miranda or a movie with them and hardships of marriage or a play or something! Can't leave us hangin' lol

    Mr. Perry, Please reconsider your decision on cancelling HOP. You can not leave us hanging like this. What is going to happen to Calvin now? There are so many unanswered questions. Please bring House of Payne back !!!!

    I don't know if anyone reads these,such as Mr. Perry,but the people are speaking to you ... We want HOP back. This was one of the few shows I allowed my son to watch with me(sitcom wise) . If these posts matter,please know this show mattered to us!

    Really, why did the HOP have such an incomplete ending there was no closer for anyone accept Curtis. That show was not suited to be a finale for a show positive, entertaining, and a great representation for the African American family. My suggestion is if you cannot bring it back as a show at least give it a better ending then that I hate that in the last years all of the African American show have had no series finally ( Eve, Half& Half , Moesha) and now for the HOP one the best shoe since the Bill Cosby area to end like this in just no right please bring the show back or redo the ending I know you a great writer and you have a gift from God to make people laugh at ther drama.

    The well was (is) far from dry, with House of Payne... the children (Malik, Jasmine and the twins), Floyd, Claretha, the Firehouse Crew, the Barbershop Crew, Pookie and Peanut, even Mercedes' and her family, all these characters are left incomplete, or as unanswered questions. Mr. Perry, you are in the unique position of being the sole provider of genuine LIVE depictions of African-American life on the small screen (in addition to Stage and Theater releases). The other networks (Aspire/Bounce/BET-Centric) are still peddling reruns from the Seventies and Eighties. Our community (your fan base) deserves much more than reruns of "The Jefferson's," "Good Time's," "Sanford and Son" and/or the "Cosby Show..." Aspire has even resorted to airing reruns of "Julia!" House of Payne and Meet the Brown's were a ray of hope, and in a manner of speaking, those programs demonstrated that our entertainment needs were no longer ignored or overlooked. Mr. Perry, I'm asking you to restore our hope.

      I left one of the networks (TV-One) out in terms of peddling seventies and eighties reruns... even the new programming deals more with the past, than the future... "Unsung." It's up to you Mr. Perry, to lead us out of this entertainment wilderness!

    Dear Mr. Perry, I love the H.O.P. I was very disappointed to learn that we were not going to visit with the Payne family any more. I especially appreciated the restraint to keep the content clean and family oriented. Your blessing to our family was being able to see a family that shared Christian values albeit quite humorous and dealing with some extremely serious issues. The health segments where you had opportunities to encourage breast cancer awareness, HIV aids, addiction and STDs were handled so well and caused us to examine these topics further. Bravo Mr. Perrry for being part of my weekly routine and for bringing a smile to the end of a hectic week. My family will miss the Payne family. Thank you Thank you!

    Dear Mr. Perry, Your series HOP, Meet the Browns and For Better or Worse are shows that my children and I watch together. We look forward to Friday nights for our family time. Your shows deal with real issues our people face on a day to day basis. There are no shows that show our people in a positive light. They have influenced other nationalities in an emormous way. Please reconsider your decision to remove HOP, and bring back Meet the Brown. We turn in on Fridays, plus watch the reruins on cable. But if not Thank you. Much Respect, Nicole

    Please Please bring back HOP! It's my favorite show!! The finale left me in tears.. Can't you have another network pick your show up? You have millions and millions of fans wanting your show to come back! I am begging you to bring the show back!!
