TBS Wants More “For Better or Worse”

Tyler Perry’s latest TBS creation “For Better or Worse,” will be coming back to the network this summer. After airing 10 “test episodes” last season, the show finished up its run as the #1 basic cable sitcom of 2011, drawing an estimate 1.6 million viewers per episode.

With an undeniable hit on their hands, TBS has made the rare move or ordering another 35 episodes of the show, insuring that it will be on the air for the next three seasons.

Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse follows the ups-and-downs of marriage and dating. The show centers on Angela Williams (Smith), the owner of a successful beauty salon, and her husband of 13 years, Marcus (White). Marcus is a former professional football player who has recently partnered with Richard Ellington (Faulcon) and Joseph Jetson (Olive) on a new sports news program called C-Sports Now.

Marcus’s business relationship with Richard and Joseph is complicated, however, by the fact that Richard is dating Keisha (Haynes), Marcus’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his teenage daughter. In addition, Joseph’s girlfriend, successful real estate agent Leslie (Stewart), is Angela’s best friend, which sometimes makes it difficult for the couples to keep their business and private lives from mingling.

In addition to its episode order for Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse, TBS recently announced that this summer, the network will premiere the new sitcoms Men at Work, starring Danny Masterson, James Lesure, Michael Cassidy and Adam Busch, and Sullivan and Son, starring comedian Steve Byrne. Also this year, TBS will launch The Wedding Band, a new comedy series starring Brian Austin Green, Harold Perrineau, Peter Cambor and Derek Miller, Melora Hardin, Jenny Wade and Kathryn Fiore.
