Tyler Perry, the mastermind behind the mega-successful movies ad plays like "Madea Goes to Jail" and "Madea's Family Reunion" is gearing up for another TV take-over. Adding another notch in his belt, right behind actor, director, producer, filmmaker, screenwriter, playwright, you can now add talk show host to the list. Debuting on TBS, the "Tyler Perry Show" (shot at the Tyler Perry studios in Atlanta) will treat viewers to interviews with the stars of his latest film "I Can Do Bad All By Myself," including Oscar nominated Taraji P. Henson ( I love her! She's come so far since "Baby Boy").
2 thoughts came to mind when I first heard about this: "Wow, he's on a roll. That's great!" and "Omg, I've had enough of Tyler Perry." Though I've been a fan of his from the beginning, and enjoyed watching his success evolve from plays to movies to TV shows...enough is enough. You know how when your favorite music artist drops a new single and for the first few weeks you can't get enough of it? Then the radio stations play it over and over and OVER until they run it into the ground and you're freaking sick of it? Yeah...that's me right now.
Now I'm not one to hate on anyone else's successes, and I do believe that as a culture, African-Americans need to do more to support one another, but you know what they say about too much of a good thing right? Well excluding "Meet the Browns." I didn't think that was such a good thing.
I'll still check it out. And if you do, let me know what you think!
