The Oprah Winfrey-Tyler Perry combo comes packing a major punch on ratings. The two are able to draw massive audiences together and are loved more than nearly any other entertainment duo on the planet. Now, Oprah is going to double down on Tyler’s shows, which are filmed at his amazing studio down in Atlanta.
Both Tyler and Oprah are making more than nearly anyone else in Hollywood. The neat thing about it is that they are making the money because of their ability to capture a black audience. This is a heads up for anyone who thinks that you have to sell things to white people in order to get ahead.
The relationship between Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey just got tighter. Oprah’s network, OWN announced yesterday that it has doubled the order of the Tyler Perry comedy “Love Thy Neighbor,” which airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The additional 26 episodes will bring the total season order to 52 episodes.
The news comes just as the current cycle concluded with its two-episode finale on Wednesday night. The new episodes will premiere January 2014.
“Love Thy Neighbor“ is set in a family-run diner and stars Patrice Lovely as a family matriarch juggling business and family drama. Since its May 29 premiere, the series has averaged more than a million total viewers, scoring a .88 rating among women aged 25-54.
