Another Tyler Perry TV Series Coming to TBS

Posted: April 26th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Another Tyler Perry TV Series Coming to TBSSubmit Comment
Spike Lee is not going to like this, but TBS has announced that it has ordered 10 episodes of Tyler Perry's new series "For Better or Worse." The dramedy marks the third Perry series to come to TBS, which is also home to "House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns."

The new series follows the ups-and-downs of married life for television anchor Marcus and salon owner Angela, two characters who originated in Perry's "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Why Did I Get Married Too?" films. Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight) and Tasha Smith (Couples Retreat) are set to reprise their roles.

"Tyler Perry's series have been tremendously successful for TBS, helping establish the network as a prime destination for African-American viewers," said Michael Wright, head of programming, for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM).

The national premiere of "Tyler Perry's House of Payne" on TBS in June 2007 drew 5.9 million viewers, at the time basic cable's biggest sitcom audience ever. The show remained basic cable's #1 sitcom until TBS's August 2008 premiere of "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns." For the first quarter of 2011, "House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns" ranked among television's Top 5 primetime sitcoms with African-American adults 18-34 and 18-49.

'...establish the network as a prime destination for African-American viewers.'

1. Seriously... I wish America would stop defining color, race in these demographics (but it won't happen in my lifetime). 'African-American this (a black comedian... Chris Rock? Makes the point that most American blacks have never been to Africa). And distinction of Latino's etc. Is anyone really expecting bigotry, segregation and racism to end if we keep labeling people?

2. If the same person made the comment: '...establish the network as a prime destination for white viewers.' - how would that go over?

3. I notice Leno makes a LOT of Mexican jokes (almost nightly) in his monologue (but not blacks... his own band would lynch him!)... how is that not racist?

4. And having one of the top-rated shows on TBS is like winning the gold medal in the Special Olympics. At the end of the day you're still a:

Another Tyler Perry TV Series Coming to TBS AKA The Blackface Sanctuary

Nice to know FOX isn't the only broadcasting company willing to pick a turd or two out of its own ass.

@Ranger

@Lowryder

Unfortunately, the closest Mandingo will get to a train is pulling a James Frey and claiming he's a direct decendent of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad movement on Who Do You Think You Are ?
