The Tyler Perry sitcom will end its run after four years.
April 26, 2011
TBS has announced the cancellation of one Tyler Perry series just as another is set to begin. A press release for the upcoming dramedy For Better or Worse also states that House of Payne will end its successful run after four years.
"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," said Perry. "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."
House of Payne premiered on the network in June 2007 to what was, at the time, basic cable's biggest sitcom audience ever. It continued to remain popular throughout its run, ranking in television's Top 5 primetime sitcoms with African-American adults 18-34 and 18-49 as recently as the first quarter of this year.
No end date has been announced yet for the series finale.

I can't believe House Of Payne is cancelled. As for as I am concerned, The new show For Better or Worse could have been cut. House of Payne is a average, black family show.Please , leave us with some hope on family shows. BRING HOUSE OF PAYNE BACK.............

Sad to see the House of Payne go. It was the best of the three shows. Why did I get married borderlines boring. It is a shame that black married couples are portrayed in such a derogatory way to be laughed at.

I really got to see Tyler Perry's true profession by watching House of Payne. It was extremely addicting & hilarious. I can't believe they are moving on w/For better or worse. I have watched in several times & it doesn't come close to the actors & humor on "House of Payne". Please bring it back. It's the best Tyler Perry work ever!
