Similar to FOX’s ‘Empire’ after it, Tyler Perry‘s ‘The Haves & the Have Nots’ has experienced an unprecedented and continuous ride upward since its debut on the Oprah Winfrey’s OWN. And, if the response to last night’s season premiere is any indication, that ride will not be slowing any time soon.
Fans apparently couldn’t wait to get their eyes and ears back on the delectable soap opera as its return to screens not only clocked the highest viewership in the series’ tenure, but in the network’s history overall.
Via press release:
