Reception and criticism

When the highly publicized series premiere debuted on November 25, 2011, it received an impressive rating of 3.4 million viewers. Its launch has propelled the show to the top of the charts as basic cable's #1 comedy series for the month of November.

However, the freshman sitcom was welcomed to generally mixed reviews from critics.

Boston Herald said "This is more soap than sitcom, an upscale "Dynasty" crossed with "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" with a dash of urban sass. It knocks you back with a bracing dose of its characters' resentments and rages."

Opportunity LOL said "I am curious why Tyler Perry wrote for most characters to be so ostentatiously wealthy as it brings the style a little too close to day-time soap operas. Wait a second, did Tyler Perry convince me to watch a soap opera?"
