The debut of “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” on TBS Wednesday drew the biggest sitcom audience in the history of cable.
TBS aired two episodes, with ratings 12 percent higher for the second episode than for the first.
The second episode, which aired at 9:30 p.m., drew 5.8 million total viewers and 3.1 million adults 18-49. It had a 3.2 national ratings among households.
It was the highest rated telecast in the history of TBS.
“House of Payne” centers on the lives of three generations of an African-American family living under one roof.
“Last night’s record-breaking performance has gotten TBS’s summer of new sitcom premieres off to a roaring start,” said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks.
TBS will be launching “The Bill Engvall Show” and bringing back “My Boys” in July.

  4. I personally think there is no other show as un-funny as “House of Payne” and it should be taken off the air, for real! I don’t understand how it’s the highest rated cable sitcom in history…

  23. Can I just speak what a relief en route for locate a star who essentially is familiar with what theyre talking about on top of the online worlds. You certainly make out how toward carry an issue to light and build it important. Extra public must to read this plus understand this side of the narrative. I cant consider youre not extra fashionable because you definitely have the gift.

  24. Very well, not to repeat the hating on aol, but th is is possibly by far the most d isappointing l ist up to now. On both sides. How can El Banco Deuno and aol be to the very best l ist, and then bash artwork directors club? I really did nothave an issue with that redesign, along with the collateral was looking really beneficial. You realize what will need to are already to the l ist for worst logos? New York Philharmonic logo. My hatred of that logo burns in my chest to th is day. The identify with the designer behind that logo could be the only explanation for any of its accomplishment. The top l ist the yr is fairly mediocre for me.I like Mary Shu is remark about her options for that greatest l ist a little greater.

  25. Everyone in W isconsin hates that f*cking logo.
