This show is garbage. I am shocked people watch this. You'll find better acting in a Kindergarten play.

the "acting" on this show is ATROCIOUS, even from some of the veterans.

I really don't have too much to say I have never watched this show and never will.

The Finale was sloooow moving & didn't leave me at the edge of my seat. Tyler, please hire a writing staff as you can not successfully write/direct/produce for movies, sitcoms & a drama simtaneously. Hire some veteran writers mixed with some new blood...I can't believe that no one shut Candice down with Quincy coming home soon...

When Game of Thrones drops next month, everything else on TV is a race for distant 2nd place. GoT is Unfuckwittable..

Of course the show is breaking records the side whores are winning, book deals, interviews on celebrity websites. It was a time people displayed more self respect. Many can relate to this life style , that's why they tune in weekly , Tyler Perry know exactly who to target. we live in a follow the leader world. When one home wrecker starts talking 50 more want attention. This show will continue to go through the roof the home wrecker association is in full effect!!

I haven't seen this show and probably never will. But I will give props to the play. Not a tp fan by far but the SANGIN , yes SANG IN Chile reduced me to tears . Very moving. I can't call her name, but the lady who played "rose" sung the hell out of "my GOD is able" and an OUTSTANDING performance from a ms Patrice Lovely. Her solo (I call your name : Jesus) is award worthy. She knocks,that one out the park. Gives me chills. And tears. The whole cast was awesome . And the storyline was good. Not w/o flaw but good. It was the pure ,unfiltered talent that made that happen.

As far as the show, like I said I never watched. I wanna support tiki but it look to chessy vs my tastes. Congrats tho.

If this show was on a major television network, it would be cancelled. This show is awful!! I watch just to see can if it can get any worst each week, and it does! TP please hire some writers, and change some of the cast. The only one that is acting is the black mom, Veronica. You have two veteran actors, who act like they can't act. It's because the writing is so poor. You have too much of an ego TP. Release some of your duties so you can produce quality shows and movies, not quantity.

@9:20 would you believe he is writing a Syfy movie with J.J. Abrams? I'm quite sure Abrams is doing the writing. Tyler is trying to wear too many hats. I've said this a long time ago about this show. It has so many in discrepancies in it. I actually like it but some of the scenarios are off and unbelievable. I mean as coniving as Candace is....why in the world would she agree to meet Jim in the park. I mean he talked about her bad and then all of a sudden he claims he loves her and wants to met with her in a dark lonely park? I mean some red flags should have been noticed. Who arrest a person and doesn't tell them what they are arresting them for? I can go on and on but seriously he needs to swallow his pride and get some extra help.

@1127
Exactly what I said! Candice was giving off threats, told his wife she was pregnant then all of a suddent agrees to meet him? The writing is kind of terrible but the actors are doing the best that they can. Candice mom is the one who gets on my nerves the most... she is very holier than thou and overdramatic.

@12:28 a lot of people say they are tired of Hannah. I mean she told Tony to go to hell and I was like is that what a person always talking about they know Jesus does? And treating her daughter like crap? I still can't believe that he wrote a judge giving (the father who's never been in Benny's life or on the birth certificate) power of attorney. I mean they should have told the judge that he wanted the boy kidneys.....I don't think no judge would give him that after that statement. I mean did tony ever do a test to see if he was a match? This show is all over the place.

This show is my guilty pleasure and I am here for it. TP has a huge audience and I must confess I love most of his work and I can take my children to see his movies as well. TP has created his own lane and I for one am not mad at him.

i commend his success, but the other side of is TP produces garbage. i've been saying for years it's time to hire a writing staff, as ALL prime time shows do. i can see if his writing was superb, but his shit is so elementary its comical. when i saw him sitting in the audience at the oscars, i laughed. because dude was sitting there like he arrived and actually belonged. you are the laughing stock of the industry and ur peers have no respect for you. at all.

i stopped by my moms house one day and she was watching this show. i was at a loss for words. so to my point of commending him, he has a strong following that's loyal to his product line. i can not take anything away from him for that. but the product and its quality are garbage.

Horrible acting, script , lighting and wigs. But good for the cast and crew. Better than my fucked up boring office job.

Iwhy is it the only time this show is mention when they want us to believe it's broken viewers records for watching the show. I saw it once. It was boring!

I watch it but the acting is terrible. I agree TP needs to hire writers because some of the situations are unrealistic but I guess I can say the same about daytime soaps as well just that they have better writers so the acting is projected better. You're right who is going to meet at the park? I saw the writing on the wall with that scene. This is the only thing I watch from TP because the other stuff I just can't deal with it.

I only use my tv for DVDs and Netflix.
I booted cable tv months ago and I don't miss it one bit.
It's offered free in my building but I refuse to submit to the wicked CrackBox. There is simply nothing on worthwhile that I can't get from the Internet without all the tedious commercials.
I read much more because of it...

Different strokes for different folks. I personally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show. It keeps you on edge and Tyler Perry is good at intertwining the characters. Stop with all of the hate! If you don't like it, don't watch... K I M (Keep It Moving)!
