    “prolific writer, director, producer Tyler Perry”

    Look, I enjoy H&HN…but really? Talk about “creative license.”

    Tyler Perry is prolific and “The Have and The Have Nots” proves it. I’m glad I gave this show a chance because it is proving to be television excellence.

  • Jared

    The Haves and The Have Nots is one of the most dramatic shows I have ever seen. So much over the top drama that it’s ridiculous and addicting. I’m really not surprised this series continues to grow week after week. Happy to hear OWN added additional episodes.

    THATHN has proven to be a compelling show to watch. Particularly the storyline regarding breast cancer which my own wife is battling with. Some of the characters can be over the top like Wyatt but I can overlook some of the shows shortcomings & hopefully get even better over time.
