TBS has ordered a third comedy from Tyler Perry, this one based on his ‘Why Did I Get Married?’ films. How long before the T in TBS stands for Tyler Perry?

The show, ‘For Better or For Worse,’ is set to star Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith as their movie characters Marcus and Angela. TBS has yet to announce the rest of the cast. So far, 10 episodes have been ordered.

‘House of Payne,’ which has been on for seven seasons, has been canceled. The show has been on since 2006.

“Tyler Perry’s series have been tremendously successful for TBS, helping establish the network as a prime destination for African-American viewers,” Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and TCM,

said in a statement.

“Given such a remarkable track record, we’re excited for the opportunity to expand our relationship with Tyler Perry and Debmar-Mercury with the new series ‘For Better or Worse,'”

he said.

TBS currently airs Tyler Perry’s ‘House of Payne’ and ‘Meet the Browns,’ but ‘House of Payne’ will end its run soon.

“Even though it will be sad to say goodbye to ‘House of Payne,’ I’m really looking forward to exploring new territory with ‘For Better or Worse,'” Perry said in a statement. “Working on ‘House of Payne’ taught me a lot about what it takes to make a successful television series and I’m looking forward to applying that experience to ‘For Better or Worse.'”

    Why fix something if it’s not broke? Why TBS won’t have two TP sitcoms on? I think it’s a bad decision and I love me some HOUSE OF PAYNE, all I can say is three letters B E T 😉
