If you live in the 21st century and have access to the internet, then its almost impossible that you won’t have heard the name Tyler Perry banded about at some point. If you were to look up the word prolific in the dictionary, it is entirely likely that you would see a picture of his face staring back at you – he is the very definition of prolific. The American actor, producer, director, screenwriter, playwright, author, and songwriter has starred in countless films, written numerous stage plays, and created and directed many successful television shows, including Tyler Perry’s House of Payne. He has garnered a host of success for his efforts, and in 2011 was named the highest paid man in entertainment by Forbes magazine, having earned over $130 million USD in one year.

One of his more successful entries in the television market is based on one of his plays The Haves and the Have Nots. The television show is the first scripted show to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), and premiered on Tuesday May 28th 2013, with two back-to-back hour-long episodes. It has gone on to become the channels most popular series, which Variety described as “soapy fun, filled with the typical betrayals, affairs, [and] manipulations” that you would expect from a show of its nature.

So what exactly is this latest Tyler Perry entry about? Well somewhat similar to popular 70’s television show Upstairs Downstairs, the show follows the lives and dynamics between the wealthy Cryer family, the Harrington family, and the hired staff whose job it is to make sure their lives are surrounded in comfort and opulence. The show is all about scandal, and as such fills the screen with characters who are larger than life, like Veronica (Angela Robinson, Law and Order) – a villainous matriarch, who has so far tried to burn her husband alive and blackmailed her son for being homosexual. (Clearly overdue a mother of the year award). The show is also notable for tackling very serious themes such as cancer, drug abuse, rape, suicide, abortion, mental health and religion. Among the serious issues that have been tackled on the program to date have included, and like Veronica, almost all of the main characters are renowned for being devious and otherwise immoral. Beyond the questionable morals of the characters, the show is also notable for being very culturally and socially diverse, and as Angela Robison stated “is one of the only shows on television with a diverse cast that looks like America: Black, White Latino, straight, gay, rich, and poor.”

The show certainly contains enough scandal to be popular among audiences, but it all comes down to how well it’s performed and whether we can expect to see Tyler Perry’s band of sociopathic misfits return to our televisions for a seventh outing. Well, series ratings for the show have been exceptional, with the series setting a ratings record on OWN, with the highest ratings for a series premier and highest overall ratings. It also beat other shows to the top of the ladder on the night it aired, being number one among all cable shows. The second season averaged a 0.93 rating among the 18-49 demographic with 3.12 million viewers tuning in. Impressive stuff. In terms of review feedback, things are not quite so rosy, with the show only managing to reach a 6.1 score on IMDB out of 1856 reviews. However, that isn’t a huge cause for concern as many of Tyler Perry’s films and television shows often get harsh feedback, but still go on to become immensely popular. Add to the fact that OWN has already renewed the show many times, and the storylines show no sign of slowing down, and we think it is fairly safe to assume that the show will make a return in 2017.

Unfortunately there are no current Blu-Ray or DVD copies of The Have and the Have Nots available to buy and no way to legally watch the show online. However, on OWN’s website, the show is stated as airing on Tuesdays at 9.8c, so the best way to catch an episode would be to tune into the channel.  You can access the Oprah Winfrey Network on DirecTv: 279, Dish Network: 189, Verizon FIOS: 645, and AT&T U-verse: 1170 if you are inside the USA. If you aren’t unfortunately there isn’t much you can do in the legal route to catch an episode, except search YouTube until they get pulled down.

Are you excited for another dose of Tyler Perry madness or do you think he is an overpaid creator of nonsense?

Hi, what a show and I like it. this has always been the way America has operated
whether you are white or blacks. whites did it to whites, blacks did it to blacks
and all in between and it is still going on today. Just for example your local,
school boards, government, county, state and the national elections people are
corrupted and the common man and woman are being walked on and ignored
by those in power. Yet they go out in droves to vote for them. It is still about
the have and the have nots . We must rethink what we are doing to ourselves.
those in power will continue to give us crumbs and many will be happy with them.
Go Mr. Perry wake up the common man and woman. Thanks a great show.

Tyler Perry is simply a genius!! I write from Uganda in East Africa to say that The Have s and Have-nots is a story very relevant to our setting. He must have really critically observed real situations!! The actors are simply the right people in the right places. Cna’t wait to watch season 7!!!!

I am really not a TV person, but when I saw the first episode of the HAHN’s I was blown away. I am thankful for so any talented people and the diversity of the cast on the show. Even though I don’t watch TV often Tuesday nights during the airing of the HAHN’s the TV has my undivided attention. I am so looking forwarded to season 7. Tyler and Oprah you guys go together like fine wine and time it keeps getting better. “BRING IT ON”

there’s a lot of “tacky/cheesy” in show but it’s still very entertaining and with every new season, the acting seems to get better. Benny was much better last season and so was Jeffrey. Of course, Hanna is poetry as an actress. Continued success to all of them

WOW!!!!!!!SUPER FANTASTIC SHOW!!!!There is only one thing I hate about it. The longgggg wait in between seasons! And there had better be a new season coming soon. I don’t need anymore withdrawal. I’m ready……. so let’s go. My favorite would have to be Hannah. She seems to be the only one with common sense. Love her values. What a perfect world this would be if there were more people like her.

I love Tyler Perry. He is so talented. The Lord has blessed Him because he was good to His Mother & Aunty. The Bible says; Respect your parents that your days may be lengthy on earth. He did that. I’m very proud to know him spiritually in my heart & I send up prayers that the Lord continually cause prosperity in all that he do, and touch. Same for Oprah Winfrey. God will do it. Keep holding on to Gods unchanging hand cause He’s going to take you both higher & higher. Love to you both!
