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 am so sorry House of Payne has ended. This show was great it touched on every topic concerning African Americans. One minute we were crying the next we were laughing, sometimes you have to laugh to keep the pain hidden. Tyler we absolutely loved this show. To see a middle class family going through life realistically. Wow!!! We are truly going to miss this show.

    Mr. Perry, I love your work. I am truly blessed that GOD has used you as a vessel to get messages across. Rather it be religion, Life lessons, or just how to.. but I strongly agree with the ending of House of Payne. I know the show is in syndication, but theirs nothing like seeing the new shows airing. I sincerely hope and plead that House of Payne returns. I understand that all things change and that pretty much nothing lasts forever, but I feel a strong family connection and I make sure that I am infront of the TV minutes leading up to HOP airing (Dont want to miss a minute of it!) Im watching For Better or Worse because I am a fan of your's and Tarsha Smith. Also, Im feeling Bobbi Kristina's Character. Its growing on me. House of Payne was more than just a show to me. My Mom passed away October 2009 and before her passing I would go to her house and watch the show with her when it aired on Wed. nights. So the sitcom will be truly missed. But, Im hoping that it will be picked back up and began rolling again with even more of a punch and things that we can relate to. Much Love Mr. Perry and GOD Bless.

    I looked forward to this show, and set my DVR to tape it when I am un-able to watch it physically, It is always on my mind, and I looked forward to a Friday night with the Paynes. The show presents a real positve image, that is needed in the society we live in. You want to see people like yourself overcoming the everyday challenges of life successfully. The stuation with Janine and C.J. is remarkable, it shows an African-American male, strong and holding down the fort, while his wife struggles with chemical dependence. His love and the love of the family arrangement helps him and her overcome a realistic obstacle, and they get to a point where they work together and are blessed with twin children. Never before have we had a show that deals with all areas of family life, Cosby was great, but this show has something special. Miranda was from the Cosby show. Her and Calvins situation is unique also. It shows black men sticking and staying. Curtis and Mrs. Ella the patriarch and matriarch of the family, there could not have been to beter people to play their roles. This is shocking to me, and I am dis-appointed. Why take away something that we need. The acting on the show, I thought was getting better and better. Janine, God has blessed you with remarkable acting skills along with your husband C.J. who has been around since Jason's Lyric. I hae so much more to relate, but cancelling the Paynes I surely hate.

    My dad and i watch the show ever friday. Im only 13 but i have become attached pver the years. Im very sad with the show ending but i am even more sad that it ended the way thy is did and that miranda had wanted a dovorce twice! I hop this was just a joke about it ending and i really hope it will return in the fall.

    Surely Tyler is playing a joke on us folks, you remember the man said the last show ever! - Who says that at a Series finale, it is a Series Finale that's what it means no more shows. I must believe that was an indication to more to come, just read between the lines, hey Tyler that would make for a great other show. Reading between the lines. ha ha ha. We'll be right here waiting for House of Paynes to return and/or a spin off of CJ, Calvin, Janine and Miranda. God bless and be with you, you are not that cruel. If we need to do something let us no what we need to do.

    Can't believe the show is canceled. What makes worse is I missed then last shows of the season! I guess the show is out of production by now and the actors are on to other jobs, so I know it would be impossible to recreate. If I were to cancel a show the "Browns"would have went!

  • Lynn Atlanta,GA

    Do you think you really made the right decision? I think not!!

  • Ericka Spires High Point, North Carolina

    Taking the show off has left void. This is a show even my grand kids liked. Sorry to see it go!

  • Mary Anderson Greensboro, N.C.

    Unlike most of the the shows on TV today this was one show that was funny without being taking humor to a another level. The shows had great story lines and lots of meaning. I am very sorry to see it go off. While I like the other show-it is not really the same type of family show as the Paynes. I don't think the best choice was made by replacing one with the other.

    My husband and I have just caught up on episodes from our DVR and were SHOCKED to hear the announcer say "LAST EPISODE EVER" then we watch the show and were even more SHOCKED at how it ended. This can't be right....surely Tyler Perry and TBS are playing a game and this isnt right. We can't end this series and then to end it the way you did is NOT okay. I'm sitting here feeling cheated and very incomplete. PLEASE PLEASE bring this show back. I just dont understand why it ended.....Please explain....someone....please.

    I am very upset that House of Payne is going off the air. My kids and I love this show. I even got my husband to pull away from PS3 to watch it. This is the only T.V. show I can get him to sit and watch with me without being tempted to turn on a game and now it's cancelled. I really loved Miranda and Janine and hoped to seeing more of the babies grow up to replace the other kids, but I miss them too and have followed them over to Disney. This is very disappointing as I've been a big fan of Allen since he started on the Cosby's and to see him and Keisha reunite again on the big screen feels like family to me with a little extra flavor from Curtis and Ella. Also, Claretha and Floyd was the flare the show needed from a time of two as the best friends. This was a great script and now I am wondering when will I see all my favorite cast again. Tyler can you move to another network maybe OWN will take us.
