It debuted on TBS on Friday, the 25th, just after Thanksgiving; anybody watch? I didn't, so no comments from me on Tyler Perry's new TV series For Better Or Worse which is based on his Why Did I Get Married? films (at first plays), and follows the ups-and-downs of married life for Marcus and Angela, characters who originated in the features.

For better or worse

It debuted on TBS on Friday, the 25th, just after Thanksgiving; anybody watch? I didn't, so no comments from me on Tyler Perry's new TV series For Better Or Worse which is based on his Why Did I Get Married? films (at first plays), and follows the ups-and-downs of married life for Marcus and Angela, characters who originated in the features.

In the films, the pair was played by Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith, and both actors also star in the new TV series.

The series is currently on a 5-week audience test, as Tyler Perry notes in the video below, which means that if it does well during its first 5 weeks, TBS will likely order more episodes, and the show stays on the air; and if audiences aren't drawn to it, then, well, it's outta there!

So... who tuned in on Friday night? And if you did, thoughts?

In the 45-minute video below, the cast of the series and Tyler Perry, answer questions from fans about the show, and talk business in general - challenges on being black in Hollywood, Tyler Perry's power and influence and the black millionaires he's created, why Marcus and Angela fight so much, how so-not a *punk* Michael Jai White's character is, how this is Tyler's most mature work, and the best show he's done, how important it is to him to show successful black people on screen, and more...
