Description:

From prolific, writer, director, producer Tyler Perry, The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama that follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.

From the outside, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double-life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family’s status. Their son Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jacyln Betham), a struggling law student, tries harder to live up to her parents’ expectations, but unknowingly has befriended a scurrilous young woman, Candace Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family. Despite having no money, she has found other types of wealth through religion and virtue. She prides herself on her dutiful son Benny (Tyler Lepley), the glue who helps keep the family together. Hanna does have one dark secret, however, her estranged daughter Candace (Tika Sumpter)—a manipulative opportunist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Other characters in the series include the Cryer’s chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and son Wyatt’s rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

    Tyler...Oh My GOD! last night was CRAZY! Tyler...why didn't Hanna call 911? She could have saved her money. I was wondering when or if Candy was ever going to find out that Jeffrey knew who hit her brother and almost killed his FINE ASS...Ooops...LOL, but now his "Cougar"-Veronica is locked up and he is not going to have his "lawyer- in -a -pocket" to help him out anymore...LOL And Candy Cane has broken Warlock's heart...wait til her finds out her a** is still LYING...she had 7 Mil. NOT 4 Mil when she paid hin $400,000.00 ...Boy oh Boy. Her mother said it right! She CAN'T tell the truth about NOTHIN! He is going to have to Pimp her out to get his money. WHAT A GREAT EPISODE. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK...LOVE YA!

      She got $7 mil from Jim, but she told War she only had $400k and she gave HIM $150k! If you can, go back and listen to their conversation again. That's why he feels so cheated!!! And out of that 7, she spent over 3 mil on the houses and Benny's business; OSCAR took the remaining $4mil she had, plus her own $50k she had in the bank and left her w/ZERO!! I'm glad he's back so he can get his real payback from her! I think War loves Candy too much to actually kill her, but I guess we'll see! Candace needs to tell him everything, so when Oscar shows up again, War can handle it!!! And I agree, Hannah should have called 911; waiting on a bus???? REALLY?? She's unbelievable!!

    Jeffrey protected Candace twice and went through h*** trying to protect her and he does deserve credit and he need his breaks. He even needs to get away from it all and have a vacation or move away. But for him to turn against her and blame her for every disaster in his life is very betraying. He can't blame her for everything. Yes, Candace does have her faults,but she has innocents as well as guilts. She allowed him to stay with her and Amanda in their apartment when his mom kick him out. And she didn't charge or pimp him out. Candace stood up for Jeffrey even when Jeffrey wasn't around his parents, and she told David to grow some balls and defend his son in front of his wife. She told David to call Jeffrey and check on his son when she sense that his life was endanger. She even stood up for him twice in front of Veronica: one time in the Sarandon hotel and the other at Jeffrey's apartment. She is the one who told Jeffrey to stand up to Veronica many times. She offer him money when he didn't have any money and his mom canceled all his credit cards, although he didn't accept it. She even encourage him a whole lot when he was down and out. She help him get out of having sex with Melissa at the Sarandon hotel and expose Melissa for her motives of pregnancy. Candace even help Jeffrey find out if Melissa is pregnant. She even offer Jeffrey a room in her house because Melissa was now living in Jeffrey's apartment until he got on his feet. I like the way Jeffrey is standing up to his mama, and not forget the way his mama treated him. But he doesn't need forget the positive things Candace did for him and her testimony of struggling to survive. If Jeffrey don't like her bad decisions why don't he go out his way to help her make good decisions that will help her live her big dreams?

      I am starting to believe that Jeffrey has more of his mother's traits in him than David's. I know Veronica has been horrible to him, but he is expressing pure hatred towards her & is seeking revenge against her. That is the way Veronica behaves towards those she feels have betrayed her. Me thinks Jeffrey is no choir boy.

      Veronica feels betrayed because Jeffrey came out of the closet and told her that he is gay. Whether anyone agree or disagree with his decision, every parent must face the reality that children have to grow up and live a life of their own otherwise they are not living true adulthood. Yes there are consequences for decisions but parents can't control their children when they become adults otherwise the parent mind as well be charged for false imprisonment or their adult child may choose to get a restraining order against them. Veronica must realize she can only control Veronica and nobody else.

    This season is a bit boring. Last season was ROCKING and even ended with the POWER!!! I agree about the communication between the characters so many wasted WORDS. Okay, we get it MOVE ON. To wait all week to see a show with so many commercial breaks equaling to 25 minutes of air time I expect to see something. How many times did Candance repeat to Jeffery the same words to Jeffrey hitting him in the chest and in the back. Hinting to him that he is involved. How many days have this KILLER been waiting in Veronica house? How many days have they been in JAIL? Is this just one day? One Hour? This is like the longest day of their lives... How many days Quincy dead in the floor? Candance went to sleep with the body in the floor? No one seems phased this body in the floor but Jeffrey. Now benny moving the body. the hold cast will soon be in JAIL but Hannah. Hannah gets the little boy out the bed with fever all over him. And he got dressed and they went out to take a taxi. Ahhhhh...No bathroom, wash his face... sweat pouring down his face... uhhhh toothbrush?? Anyway I love you Tyler just some criticism

    I'm like so many, totally hooked on this show! My reason for comments today is regarding program information on TWC for OWN. It airs on channel 1355 for HD or channel 173 non-HD in my city. Felt like 'twilight zone' moment last night and last week! Since when did H&HN start showing [HD1355]@ 6:00PM Pacific Time? Additionally the information for NEXT week's show read out last night; advising the 'original air-date' was 1-19-2016!! The same scenerio occurred last week. There's too many screw ups who else should I question? I know for sure, last season previous air time for your show had been 9:00PM - But on Direct TV on @ 6:00PM [would watch early over a family member's house] Is the dilemma my switching over from OWN 173 to HD1355 - I don't believe that OWN originally aired in HD in our area or possibly TWC didn't advise of HD channel after acquired by OWN. Final comment we've had HDTV since 2007

      I have DISH and I watch it @6 Pacific, but it comes on again @9 also in case I miss it earlier; in between 6 & 9, they show repeat episodes for those who didn't get to see them before.

    Oh my goodness! Thank you for my Tuesday night show! I hope Jeffery figure it out, Wyatt is playing him for his benefit. Candace should give Jeffery what he want, Oscar should get his and hopefully War give it to him! I love Benny, way to be there for your sister!

    Mr. Perry: The cast and the show is awesome! You should think about changing the minutes from 60 to 90. I am so addicted to this show! All I will say is Veronica is the truth! Not to take anything from the rest of the cast because they are great as well. Please keep up the good work!

    D*** Hannah!! If she weren't so pig headed and had stayed @Benny's none of this would be happening! She makes me sick! That baby's gonna get taken from her and put in foster care! As for that Quita, I hope she gets run over or hurt; who does she think she is?? It's about time Candace found out about Wyatt hitting Benny and the little girl; and since Jeffrey has shown his true colors and is such a chicken, I hope she implicates him in Q's murder; and he has the nerve to blame everything on her! Yeah, she's a liar and a schemer, but if he weren't such a p-nk and knew how to man up to Veronica, and weren't such a fool for Wyatt, he wouldn't need anyone's help! Candace still has to deal w/Warlock, and now we have 'Oscar' back on the scene...this should be good! Candace has yet to deal w/Oscar and the $$ he stole from her account! Things are getting really messy now; this is a bomb shell season!! LOVE IT!

      Are you kidding? Candace stole the money from the Cryers? She is not owed anything. She is really the cause for Amanda's death. Making Jeffrey stand up for who he is one thing but to go against His mother is another. The street people need to go, that part is too ghetto!! Every character has done something to warrant bad to happen to them. Definitely not for Candace to have the money--No way!!!

    Loved last season and this season began well but now it is just tooooooo drug out. Get on with the story will you. No one with that much money and connection would be denied a simple phone call for this long. Time to release who ever and move on. Also, I don't know how Candace can possibly dispose of that dead body after it has laid there that length of time. Really? Love the show but please don't lose your objective here.
