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.

    Hello Family, Please think clearly before we speak out negatively on how Tyler ended the show. We must stand with him. This was not an easy ending to absorb. But, realistically is life easy. No the reality is life is hard and we have to accept the things we do not want to believe. We say that Tyler listens to God when he writes theses shows and movies. If we truly believe he hears God we have to know he ended the show in the correct fashion. Tyler fashioned the House of Payne as true life situations with Ella serving God - Curtis being sometimes in sometimes out & CJ dealing with his deceiving wife having to forgive -Janine facing her drug addiction - to every character of the show. Please understand I am sadden about Miranda and Calvin because they were real life to us all. But in real life it doesn't always end peachy creamy as we would like. Sometimes divorce comes into play. Please remember to support our brother Tyler Perry don't allow bitterness and anger overtake you. You see all Satan wants is a foot in the door. We don't want to get angry and void all the VICTORIES, EFFORTS AND TRUTH which has already been expressed through the making of House Of Payne. Look at all the doors God has used Tyler to open for his people of all races. Especially our Black people. Tyler is such as inspiration to us all. Remember who he serves and who he is glorifying with his work. He is serving our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He is a Son of the most high our FATHER GOD. Thank you Father for the GIFT of our brother TYLER PERRY. Keep working through him keep his family and friends, Stay the hand of the enemy against him and allow your precious Spirit to cover him. In Jesus mighty name show yourself strong Father. For your name sake. Bless Lord. Amen and Amen. Your sister in Christ Monique Whitehead we love you Tyler.

    Tyler Perry to be honest i ust got into house of payne last year. I really like meet the browns and because the shows would always come on together i began to watch them. Then i truly started to like this show more than Meet the Browns which I was surprised at. I was really surprised when you took Meet the Browns off the air but at least I still had House Of Payne. And ever since after Calvin and Miranda got married the plot kept getting better and better. I truly love the couples in particular, Cj and Janine and Calvin and Miranda. I really felt like this issues were truly real and you felt for the characters especially every time we saw Calvin cry lol. Even Jasmine and Malik's issues were up to date with real life issues. I was disappointed with it ending last friday and even more upset on how it ended. I know everything at some point must come to an end but please not yet I really enjoy this show and i would like to see a better finale. I don't really watch for better or for worse so i don't know what i'll really have to watch on friday's. Anyways please bring it back even if it is only for one more season PLEASE.

    I must say that I am sooooooooooooooo disappointed that 1. this show was cancelled and 2. the way it ended. REALLY??? I wanted to jump through the screen on Miranda but to see her walk out that door and walk away from her marriage and to know that's it! We don't get to see how that situation is resolved at all? Yea I know I need to get a life (like really), because clearly I am too caught up in this show but I just need some resolution Mr. Perry so I can have peace. Now what can we do to fix this?

    Please say it is not true. Please do not cancel House of Paynes. We cannot lose another show that we enjoy to watch.

    I just watched the last episode of House of Payne. That can't be it. Even with The Cosby Show, Cliff and Claire left elegantly. It should have been a better ending of such a great run. Wow!

I'm so full right now I can feel every ones heart on this matter, it seems as though we just received our century Cosby family even with a touch of Rudy in there..lol anyway I stumbled into this conversation I was just looking to see new episodes of House of Payne on the internet because I don't have cable then I find out it's gone, my children are gonna be so upset...how did this happen? we were trying to keep the ratings up.

    Mr Perry I agree with the rest of the people. I was shocked that you left HOP ending with Calvin being divorced from Maranda. Meanwhile the rest of the family is at a anniversary dinner. This did not adequately bring closure to the show. Please listen to the viewers and do another show or season. We the viewers deserve better from you.

    O.M.G I can not believe "House of Payne" is over, my husband and I loved that sitcom and the way it ended was not right, in fact we didn't even know it was going off the air, just like "Meet the Browns" well at least we have "For Better or Worst" for now. I agree with everyone bring H.O.P back. I just loved Curtis and Ella. When I learned H.O.P was no more my heart got broke. :(

    I just finished watching the last episode of the show. OMG!!! I can't believe the show ended that way. One of the reasons I love the show so much is how the family always seems to overcome trials and tribulations by putting God first. Such a positive show ended on such a negative note. This ENDING, (to me) does not represent a true Tyler Perry production. Tyler, there must be a reason for such a ending that we are not aware of. I think this show is one of the best series put on TV; however, I feel the disappointment of watching a excellent movie with a terrible ending. I will miss the Payne family :( :( :( I love you guys....
