    I Love for Better or for Worse! With that said the writing since it has been on OWN is not the same caliber as it was last season. I agree with everything that Nessa from Severna Park MD said in her post. Please take this criticism for what it is, this show has the potential to be a good comedy. Love your work, and may God continue to bless you!C

    May GOD bless you to continue doing such a great job in keeping us entertain. Do you have a date as to when season two of THE HAVES AND THE HAVES NOT will begin the new season? I know you will let us know as soon as possible. I am so happy. Waiting patiently.

      I thought your email said the new season of "the haves" was coming on last week. I did not see it, my dvr did not tape it; did I miss something? I can't miss not one episode. Great job as usual.

    Last season I loved for better or worse. This season I find myself fast forwarding thru the show. To much time on that annoying friend the guy and the girl. Also I like Keisha but she is gaining soooo much weight tone down those tight sexy dresses. That first episode I just couldn't get with it. I was soooo annoyed. She is blowing up! Please let Joseph and Leslie reunite. Where is MJ? Love me some Tyler Perry

    You ever acknowledge anything that I have ever inquired about. I thought you were better than that

    I love For Better Or Worse, but I don't like Chris and Keisha together. I love Joseph and Keisha together and I do assume that you will be putting those to back together? I sure do hope so, they are great for each other. Their one of my favorite TV couples. Come on Mr. Perry, put them back together soon, real soon.

    Could you please show a rerun of the premiere of September 18th I missed it. Thanks

    Most of the characters have well developed stories behind them. I particularly enjoy Angela and Marcus' characters and their relationship dynamics.The problem I have is the writing and the flow of the show. There is way too much time spent repeating one liners and cliches'. Relying on telling a person to "shut up" on every other line just seems like a waste of writing. The characters are often dragging on a point longer than necessary and too many laugh tracks are inserted. I love most if not all of what Tyler Perry does. I was a huge fan of House of Payne. It too started off with a lot of over acting and dragged out scenes. It eventually become a very stellar comedy that I miss quite a bit. I recommend the writing be tightened up the comedy be more unique and creative, and the scenes flow smoother and faster. This show has some great story lines and amazing chance for continued success but it needs to be better written and executed to continue to get my support. Thank you Tyler for all you have done and are doing. I hope this comment is beneficial.

    Where is little MJ? Is he still on the show?

  • Jeannettia Smith Phoenix,Az

    Tyler it would be intriguing for you and Shondra Grimes to team up and create something that would blow them out of the water and catapult you two straight to the Oscars

    The volume on the laugh track needs to be turned down about half way, it's too loud. That may be way everyone is complaining about it. Todd is now a little too much....he's irritating!!!! Please let Leslie & Joseph reunite!

  • Doris Southern California

    The new episode that just started September 2013 is not that great my husband and I use to look forward to a date night on fridays watching it together now it's boring !! But most and foremost you need to get rid of is that laugh track it's making the show even worse we can't even watch the show without focusing on that laugh track !! AWFUL !!! But the love the show "The Haves and the Haves Not's" awesome show !!

  • Britt

    Can you please get rid of that Audience laughing in the background. It's ruining the show.
