Family Television Review
The comedy show that my family and I enjoy watching is House of Payne, which airs on TBS every Friday at 8pm. “The Paynes are three generations living under one roof.

Although, these actors, and actresses are acting, they are real people and majority are related, such as the main characters, Cassi and Lavan Davis, who are husband and wife in real life. I enjoy watch the way the reveal each message because they all have a valuable lesson that I learn. This television series is a Christian based show, so I think that is the reason I enjoy...
