TBS Orders 35 New Episodes Of Tyler Perry's "For Better or Worse" (The #1 Show On TV Among Black Adults)

TBS has ordered 35 new episodes of Tyler Perry’s latest sitcom, For Better Or Worse, the ensemble comedy based on characters from his Why Did I Get Married? flicks, starring Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White.

I’m not certain how many additional seasons that will be; the series premiered in November with a 10-episode season. But TBS doesn’t say exactly how this new order of 35 episodes will be spread out.

Regardless, another season (at least) of the show is coming, beginning this summer.

Some stats worth noting according to Deadline: For Better Or Worse ranked as basic cable’s No.1 sitcom of 2011, AND the No.1 show on all of television amongst African-American adults.

I’ll let that sit with you for a minute :)

So as much as many of us we’re not watching, obviously a lot of us are! I’m not, but somebody certainly is.

The TP money machine keeps on churning…
