Summary and storyline
Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse is an American dramedy series that follows the zany and sometimes tumultuous relationship of Marcus and Angela Williams as they deal with the challenges of married life. Written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, the series first debuted on April 26, 2011 on TBS, but has been airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) since the third season. The current ninth season kicked off on September 30, 2016.
Based on Perry’s 2007 film Why Did I get Married? and its sequel Why Did I Get Married Too?, the hilarious series revolves around a lovesick married couple, their extended family and friends. Marcus “MJ” Williams Jr. is a football player turned sports commentator. His wife Angela is the edgy and outspoken owner of a hair salon and hair care products. The sitcom has generated mixed reviews during its six season run. Despite a solid opening season, which drew a whopping 3.33 million viewers, the show has steadily dipped in ratings since, but still enjoys popularity with the audience.
Current season, ratings and renewal prospects
Season nine premiere features Keisha intercepting the present sent by Richard to his new romantic interest, and Leslie and Angela hoping to rebuild their friendship with Jennifer. The tight group of friends explores the joys and troubles of marriage, friendships and life in general. Seasons 4 through 6 were disappointing ratings-wise, but the dramedy series made enough of a comeback in the seventh season to be picked up for a renewal. The show`s 7th season was, in fact, the #1 original series across networks in African American women and #2 in total viewers in the African American demo. In 2013 For Better or Worse won a Top Television Series award at the ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards. Season 8 premiered to 724,000 viewers, and the current ninth installment debuted with two back-to-back premiere episodes, drawing 690,000 live viewers. The review aggregator websites have not been particularly kind to the series, with Rotten Tomatoes rating it at 50% and IMDb granting it a 4.2/10 score, while viewers are mostly satisfied, but not amazed by this project. We have yet to see how the remaining episodes fare ratings-wise, and will inform you as soon as either a renewal or a cancelation decision is revealed.
