The Haves and the Have Nots is a primetime cable drama written by Tyler Perry, focusing on the interacting lives of the rich Cryer and Harrington families and the poor Young family. Hanna Young, a struggling maid working for the Cryers, wasn't the best person in the past but is now a woman of faith. But her faith and resolve are tested when she finds out that her promiscuous daughter Candace Young, whom she desperately tries to avoid, has stepped into the lives of Hanna's employer, Jim Cryer, and his family.

Don't compare this program to Scandal!
5 February 2014 | by jwiggins6429See all my reviews

Please stop comparing this show to Scandal…as there is no comparison. This show doesn't have the foundation to reach that level of entertainment. The dialogue is immature…at times it just doesn't connect; it doesn't move one into a place of emotion. The acting for a serious drama is horrible. I watched it last night(2/4/2014) and the scene in the hospital was hilarious. Who walks directly into an operating room??? Why was the security guard just standing there??? I don't care that it is a community hospital that is just not reality. I wouldn't be surprised if Madea made an appearance…in fact, I expect it. Imagine this – during the hospital scene – Madea comes out from the back and checks Ms. Candice – the way only Madea can. That would have been the icing on the cake! As a comedy, I give it an 8; as a drama, a 2 at best.
