The 3rd season of Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse debuts on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network with 2 back-to-back episodes, on Wednesday, September 18 at 9 PM ET/PT. Written, directed, executive produced and created by Tyler Perry, For Better or Worse centers on successful salon owner Angela Williams (Tasha Smith) and her husband of 13 years, former professional football player Marcus (Michael Jai White). Marcus is partnered with Richard Ellington (Kent Faulcon) and Joseph Jetson (Jason Olive) on a new sports news program called "C-Sports Now." Marcus' business relationship with Richard and Joseph is complicated, however, by the fact that Richard is married to Keisha (Kiki Haynes), Marcus's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his teenage daughter. In addition, Joseph's ex-girlfriend, successful real estate agent Leslie Norris (Crystle Stewart), is Angela's best friend.

The 3rd season of Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse debuts on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network with 2 back-to-back episodes, on Wednesday, September 18 at 9 PM ET/PT.


Written, directed, executive produced and created by Tyler Perry, For Better or Worse centers on successful salon owner Angela Williams (Tasha Smith) and her husband of 13 years, former professional football player Marcus (Michael Jai White). Marcus is partnered with Richard Ellington (Kent Faulcon) and Joseph Jetson (Jason Olive) on a new sports news program called "C-Sports Now." Marcus' business relationship with Richard and Joseph is complicated, however, by the fact that Richard is married to Keisha (Kiki Haynes), Marcus's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his teenage daughter. In addition, Joseph's ex-girlfriend, successful real estate agent Leslie Norris (Crystle Stewart), is Angela's best friend.

As I noted in a previous post, an aside... If I ever get the opportunity to interview Oprah Winfrey, one question I would ask, would be whether what her network has become (or at least the direction it seems to be heading towards) is what she had in mind for it, when she first had the idea the launch it, and how much of her original vision for OWN remains. 

I'm genuinely curious, and would love to have been a fly on the wall during meetings/conversations with Discovery brass about how to shape it, soon after the network's launch, through its early well-publicized struggles, to its current incarnation.

There's a riveting, enlightening documentary to be made there, that could educate other would-be TV network owners, and I hope much of this journey has been documented. I'd love to watch that film: OWN: The Making Of A TV Network.

Here's your first look at an OWN promo for the series, featuring Tyler Perry.
