    I saw this show for the first time today and I was soooo disappointed. TP I KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER THEN WORSE.

    Okay the laughing after every pause is down right annoying. Please stop that and let them act. You have a great cast just to many pauses and way to much laughing. I really am disappointed as the show needs to have more fluent lines and less pauses. I am hoping the show can get better.

    I am so disappointed in Leslie -- how stupid is she. This is not a good story line -- how could she treat someone so badly and go against her vows. And she believes that it's ok. She was stomped on and I thought that story line was a bust -- then she finds someone so great and what does she do. And as for Angela and her other friend -- how should they re-act? They try to talk to her and what does she do -- talk about Joseph...Wow how sick -- it's not funny to me. Tyler -- you need to fix this one -- it's sick....

    TP....Do you have to have so many laugh tracks? Trust we will know when to laugh

    I was really happy to see the direction you were going with the marriage of Chris and Lesley, and now you have rip that rug right from under our feet and made a woman who seemed to be fed up with waiting for a man to love her and marry a man of all our dreams. Now she looks week and pitiful for a man who didn't want to commit to her until she was not available to him anymore. I know its TV but this is where we escape from the real world and we want to see the Cinderella happy life. I'm not going to give up watching for now (but its so hard) with the hope that you will reconsider that story line.

      I agree with you on the Leslie/Chris/Joseph storyline. I have my TV set to automatically record the show and after Wednesday's episode I stopped the automatic recording. I will check out the next show to see if I will continue watching. As I stated previously, Joseph didn't even tell his mother about Leslie until she came to visit so why she would want him back is beyond me, but since you never showed the actual wedding that was my insight that she wasn't going to stay married.

      It seems as if she is being written as a weakling on purpose...I just can't get with it!

  • Mattie Roddy

    I don't understand the current story line of for better or worse. Leslie lived with a man that did not want to marry her and disrespected her. Found someone who did and couldn't commit to someone who respected her. Implied is some silly black woman who thinks that a man who treated her bad is better than one that cared for her. So many missed opportunities.

      I agree with all other comments! When the show was on tbs it was more meaningful. Now the acting is so silly and choppy. Too much of not getting to the point. Leslie walking into the salon not saying anything, and Jennifer and Angela going back in forth over nothing, and Marcus and Richard's friend at work is just over the top silly! And Joseph is pitiful,too! Sorry TP, but you've put better stuff out there for entertainment purposes. I'm probably gonna stop using up my recording space with such silliness on Wednesdays and watch L & O special victims or modern family!

      Tyler Perry you have got to do some work on the show this season. All the bickering back and forth is super annoying. The guys at work are the worse, especially the young intern and his involvement is so not realistic. The jokes are not funny at all and it takes way to long to get to the point. The story lines need a boost. The season when Bobbi Christina was on was actually the best season to date. I love the concept of the show so do not want to loose the show, but please tweak it as I know you can easily do.

  • parker Florida

    I really love tyler 's work but this show is so unreal and I know longer want to watch it. Joseph is a wimp and stupid. Leslie don't know what is want, angela and jen needs some acting lessons. so I decide not to watch it anymore.

  • preston florida

    i truly love tyler's work, i really think he has a good eye for movies and tv, but this show is too far unreal than real. let me explain, i know angela was a chemistry major and when she could not get hired in corporate america, she created her own hair product line( hence how she got a successful salon), but no stylist in america does her clients hair in 6 inch heels and wear the best clothing, plus Tasha's acting is not the same i am used too seeing. she is one of the best hood actresses i have ever seen, but this role is not for her. jennifer is the main reason to watch the show---she is hilarious and down to earth, plus todd is really good as a antagonist. the station head is really not beliveable and keisha is really overacted, but the biggest downfall to me was when marcus found out keisha's daughter was not his----there is no black man in america that would have reacted that calmly.

  • Duke Phoenix, AZ

    This show has the absolute worse dialog. The writers should be shot. I feel like I'm watching a show written for 3rd graders. Is this really the type of show Oprah wants on her network?

  • Cassey Los Angeles CA

    You are overdoing Angela's jokes. You are making her humor annoying, know when enough is enough. Cut out some of the bickering and get to the freaking point. The jokes have to be hilarious to be carried out for as long as you all do and they are just not that funny. The only show that I know that has ever been that funny is Martin and this show doe snot even come close. Know when to stop, please. The show is really good but it wont last long if you continue to make it annoying. FYI Marcus, Leslie, the boy that works in the office as an assistant and the girl that works at the front desk as an assistant are the only characters that are naturally funny. The other characters come across as annoying when they go on too long about the same stupid subject or joke. Keyshia, Angie, Joseph seriously annoying as SH*****T

  • Cassy Los Angeles CA

    Tyler, I like the plot of the show. But I can no longer watch the show any longer. It is so annoying. You all elaborate on the jokes for way too long, the extra back and forth is excessive and makes you just want to turn the TV off. With your amount of experience, I would think you would know the right amount of balance and how far to carry the jokes or the back and forth of conversations. Please hire a professional, experienced writer that knows when the joke has went on too long. The serious and funny conversations go from funny or serious to annnnnnnoying really quick. Its way too much back and forth about one subject and we get the point. You need to balance it. Do you or Opera actually watch the show? Because I'm sure if you did you would make the changes. I'm starting to think you do not write or watch the show. Your previous work seems more professional than this, please get rid of your writer and get a more experienced team. The show has a great plot and I would love to watch but it's really annoying. The conversations go on way too long. TOOOOOOOO LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
