    okay grab the tissues I am still crying. what a another great show. Please keep them coming.

    • Stephanie says:

      Girl I’m with you on that. When he pulls her in the house after taking out the trash. what happens.when does the next epsoide start.

    • HLA says:

      i thought that it was only Thrusdays I keep checking everyday. I can’t wait to see it. I’ll be waiting.

    • MVT says:

      OMG, this needs to last longer than 20 min and it should come on everyday. It drives me crazy waiting for the next episode. I just knew that girl would endup preganant when Ocean feel asleep in the bathroom and told her she was glowing. Anyway I really think that Billy Dee is still handsome but he and Trina could use a little more practice with certain scenes they play. Also, I thought Lupe would have been the one to not see Friday and Ocean and the guy could raise the children together. lol Please let Peggy’s man come back!

    • Keshia says:

      Hey guys,where are the new episodes??????? I’ve seen “Friday” about three weeks ago. Where are the rest? Did anyone hear anything about the upcoming episodes yet? Please let me know.

    • Stephanie says:

      How can Ocean be so blind and not know that uncle Bo, were trying to tell her something about Trina.

    • Pamela Scott says:

      I loved this and I can’t wait for it to come back you can’t leave us hanging like this..

    • singlemommadreamsbig says:

      I have just finished watching every episode of D.O.S.W. and with each show I am empowered in my own life to “Flex my Me Muscle”. I love this show Please keep it on for me and for all MY Single Mothers Trying to Make a New Way out of No Way….I am so touched by each character and I am anxiously awaiting the next Season.

  2. Kishonda Alexander says:

    Amen Amen love this quote from Ocean “But whatever troubles befall us, I know one thing for true. We are stronger together then we ever are alone…By grace we’ve made it this far and by faith we will keep on making it tomorrow.” Beautiful..thanks to Robert Townsend and the entire cast.

  3. KBeas says:

    This was one of the best shows. Keeping it coming Mr. Townsend. God is the Man!

    • janice Lynde says:

      For Sure!…I feel so blessed to have these ladies, as my friends, and these men and children in my life…God is Good! And I am so Blessed! God Bless you all, and may our show be the audience’s inspiration it is to me…Dessa reminds me of my mom, who passed away, 2 days before our 2nd season…Our angels who speak through God!

      PS…On the lighter note, now that Lupe is well again, it’s time for a new “Make Overh”, (as she said in the 1st season)…Body, Mind, and Spirit!

    • Edwina says:

      I agree Janice—total makeovers for Ocean, Peggy, and Lupe are totally in order. Your lives are being changed and so should your looks. I love how the characters are becoming so confident. This is an amazing series.

  4. Karletta says:

    I am soo happy for Lupe. But her mother has some issues trusting her. Her mother assumes too much. Ocean has no idea what’s about to hit her the next episode. Uncle Bo….. Dang it! Trina…. what a trip and double dang!

  5. Another great episode! I really appreciate the issues this show addresses.

    So glad Ocean did her research and found out how to get the landlord off their backs. Knowledge truly is power.

    Too bad about Trina. I knew that was coming. She needs a lot more help than Ocean can give to overcome her past trauma and low self-esteem. One year cannot erase a lifetime of hurt.

    Uncle Bo…well he needs serious help but he’s not ready. Until then he will continue to self-destruct.

  6. Shauna says:

    I knew Trina was pregnant. I bet you it’s senior’s baby. I knew Ms. Deesa was gonna die and poor uncle just can’t stay off the wagon

  7. Carole says:

    Like many of you I wait anxiously for these episodes. This is one of the best to date. Uncle Bo’s pain and devastation rang so real! I loved seeing Ocean confront the realty man.
    You just hope and pray for Ocean, Trina and Peggy to stay blessed and safe in a world that tests their faith everyday.
    I feel inspired from this episode.

  8. Even though I am in tears I ‘m so greatful to have this show I can watch every thursday. Mr. Townsend and writers keep up the great story lines and how to get the help we need. The Actors were superb in their roles. Thanks for the extra time, we need more, Robert work on that. love as always

  9. Ramona says:

    I truly love this show. It is a divine blessing to have such a tool as this catering to single parents. Keep up the wonderful work!

  10. Bizee says:

    Great episode!! I look so forward to Thursdays so I can watch. Poor Uncle Bo– I know that feeling of devastation. You think you’re there for your teen, and you do all you can, but sometimes…

  11. SouthernGirl59 says:

    Another phenomenal season! I hate that the season has ended! I love this show! I tell everyone I know about it!

  12. Kay says:

    Every episode gets more and more intense…. Keep it going.

  13. mary s. says:

    You are blessed Mr. Townsend, God has given you the gift of writing. May He continue to bless you. Another great episode. Thanks.

  14. mary s. says:

    I am asking all the viewers of ‘Diary’ to please vote for the show at
    it has moved from 3rd place to 4th…

  15. mary s. says:

    Vote for ‘Diary’ 2011 Indie Soap of the Year at

    awards show is on Feb 21, 2011

  16. Ranaye says:

    I was so disappointed that Lupe’s mom did not join in the celebration to witness all of the wonderful changes she is making in her life. Glad to see Sammy coming around and I hope Trina can find her way and release her past

  17. I just lost a great friend to terminal Cancer Saturday 1/15. Her funeral is tomorrow 1/21. My God My God My God.

  18. Lynn says:

    Why can’t she see what’s going on? It’s was so obvious that Trina was trying to hide something. I would of picked up on it.

    • Nai says:

      Denial! She doesn’t WANT to see it. Seeing that would mean that she has to accept more responsibility for what she wasn’t aware of in her own house. I hope that Ocean gets some help of her own soon! The therapist was right, Sammy is not going to get well until the WHOLE family gets well!

  19. Laundon Michelle says:

    This was amazing… I am now caught up with all of the episodes and I can’t to see what happens next…

  20. BRB says:

    Love it — Just watched this episode with my tissue box.. Then posted on facebook the link. This was one of the best episodes. So true to life.
    Mr Townsend keep them coming. I’m telling everyone I know to watch .

  21. M.E. Brown says:

  23. Jsacto says:

    Okay. Can we say OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK for next season. Please, please, please, get with Ms. Winfrey and make this happen. This is the best yet.

  24. Nina says:

    When I was catching up on the shows the short time was not a problem, But now that im caught up i really need these shows to be longer, Another great inspiring show.

    • SouthernGirl59 says:

      The length of these shows are equivalent to about a 30 min show. This show doesn’t have commercials. GH, OLTL, etc are on for an hour but the actual show is only 38min in length.

  25. wanda j says:

    this show is truly a blessing, this episode really touched me I cried and I had to watch it over again. to MR Townsend and the cast ABSOLUTELY SUPERB ….

  26. Kimberly W. says:

  27. Cee says:

    This is one of the best shows that I have ever seen! I am not one to usually comment on posts, but I just had to let the writers, directors, producers, and actors know that you are doing an AMAZING job. This show is a blessing and inspiration to many people, especially because it provides resources for people going through similar problems. Bravo to you all!

  28. Shanita says:

    This show not only inspire and encouarge, but it educates you too. Keep up the good work to all who are responsible for making it happen. Thanks

  29. Kathe says:

  31. Vicki says:

    Mr. Townsend,

    You truly have come a long way as far as writing and producting. You have selected a great cast for this drama and they all are great and I love the quote from Ocean on this episode. Please keep it coming my God truly bless you all.

    • SouthernGirl59 says:

      Cheryl West is the writer. Robert Townsend directs the web series.

    • Stephanie says:

  32. Vicki says:

    You have come a long way as far as directing and writing. This episode was AWESOME and I truly love the quote from Ocean. All I can say I pray that God continue to guide you and your cast. You really pick out some great actors and actress..

  33. Dell says:

    When I view the weekly episodes, on Thursday I am reminded of all the struggles that women encounter. Not to mention that your are a single mother with life and family responsibilities, you can lose sight of the most purest gifts. Your life and all the blessings that often are disguised through circumstances missed opportunities and the demise of our loved ones. Thank you Mr. Townsend for sharing your many talents.

  34. Ilia Powell says:

    19:41. Now that’s what I’m talkin about! This was a GREAT WEBISODE!!! The cast and the script were excellent. Hate to see Ida P Hall go, she was fantastic. Haven’t enjoyed Diahnn Carroll so much since “Claudine.” Mr. Townsend, keep up this noble endeavor…..

  35. Lisa says:

    I love this series and It would be highly appreciated on television as well. These episodes are so enriching to my mind, body, and soul. Thanks again and you all are highly blessed by God and by my support in continuing to watch your show. Positive and enlighting; the Real Reality TV.

  36. Jackie says:

    They just don’t listen.

  37. Amazing. Thank you so much for this awesome program.

  38. S. Adkins says:

    About to vote now. Great show everyone -Ms. West – Mr. Townsend – Keep it coming!…..The Cast – You are simply amazing!……Will be waiting for the next season. Stay blessed :)

  39. G says:

    Ms. West is a beautiful writer. I have so enjoyed watching this little show grow. Can’t wait until next season!

  40. chelsi says:

    Im mad that Ocean still didn’t know that Trina is pregnant and it’s been two episodes, and she still so naive. But I still love the show, it should really be on tv! Keep it coming Mr. Townsend.!!

    • Theresa says:

      Ocean is so overwhelm with keeping everyone above the water that the pregancy would be another weight for her. She has given Trina all she could give her to help her move forward not Trina is going to have to grow up over night.

  41. Tee says:

    Wow!! another great episode.

  42. SouthernGirl59 says:

    Much love to Cheryl West who writes Diary of a Single Mom!

  53. Theresa says:

    96 Lafayatte Street
    for tickets and more info go to:

    We single moms need a break or vacation too and what a way to do it than enjoying Leon and the Peoples.

    • Mrs. Ce Ce Wright says:

      Is this Leon w/ his reggae/soul band?
      I would love too see them, I know he is probably sexy on stage.
      I wish I lived closer to New York, I would so be there. All of you that are gonna be there, I’m so jealous!!!!

  60. Thoughts says:

    Ahh, Just checked the schedule and last week’s episode was the last for this season. So sad. When does the next season start?
    Looking forward to see how all this plays out.

  61. Forgiveness says:

    You have blessed me with this series and I thank you, looking forward to next season.

  62. Sheryl B says:

    Looks like some of us were wrong about Peter. Uncle Bo’s really gone and done it. Great news for Lupe, thank God. Now what’s this about the last ep of the season?What you talkin’ bout Willis. Say it isn’t so!! What am I going to do now ???

  63. AaronT3 says:

    Wow!!! Good one .. never knew how much one little bow could mean… Good one guys, keep up the AWESOME job =-])

  64. Stephanie says:

    Awesome Loving it!!!!!!!!!!!

  65. Mrs. Ce Ce Wright says:

    What an amazing series, love it, love it!!!
    I miss Mr. Fine (LEON)!! The show is too short to get to all the characters. I read that it might be on TV One, is that gonna happen? Cause we need a show like this!! Ocean, Lupe & Peggy, I’m gonna miss you til next season and Mike/Leon you’re my favorite hmmm…(:!!

  66. dashacole says:

    This show is truly healing. It is nice to see a diverse cast playing such positives roles. The characters remind me of what’s important in life, God, and obeying Him. We all have our own struggles and they all have their own solutions; but what’s important is that we refuse to be taken down by circumstance. That’s what makes us (people) one in the same.

  67. Quita says:

    So happy for Lupe and sad at the same time…I hope her relationship with her mother will get better…

    I am ready for another season! When is it???

  68. Normayiie says:

    wow to me this show is powerful..i wish we could have it over here in going to spread the word around about this show..ive just started watching all episodes of season one-three today nd im learning so much..i love this show..i love it ilove it i love it..i cant wait for the next season!!!..when does it start??..i want to watch the first episode of next season the moment it comes out.

  69. Denni says:

    These short episodes are full of drama that everyday people can relate to.

    Excellent story lines and very inspirational. I admire people that persist in improving their own lives and stand against abuse of any kind.

    That will be terrible if the neice is pregnant by Senior. Uncle Bo has to learn to go through pain without self-medicating. Some people over eat some people use drugs, alcohol or shop, etc.

    Drama with a purpose. I love it! Great idea. Very helpful.

    • Odell says:

      That was the first thing I thought when Ocean talked about her gaining weight. This Show really digs deep, the sad thing is we have Predators like that bastard for real.

  70. chantell says:

    Awesome!!!! I sat here and watched all three seasons. I am still in tears. This was my life before I got married. It was like, “when will the trouble end”? “I need a breakthrough now!” But these story lines have encouraged me to not wait on tomorrow, and to take life by the wheel and drive. Be the best I can be now, for me and my family!
    I can’t wait for the next season, please bring it on! :)

  71. 1magine, ATL Ga. says:

    OMG! yall called it, I didn’t see the signs that Trina was pregnant, I guess the pills threw me off. This is devastating news to a mother/aunt like Ocean, with all she’s doing trying desperately to save her family by many times unconsciously sacrificing herself and her family forces their unthoughtful/selfish decisions on her, Trina has pissed me off! with all Ocean is doing she go make a…ok, I will say it dumb ass decision like this! WOW! and where is Trina mom? I mean she could at least come by once in awhile to check on the welfare of her child….typical!

    Uncle Bo: hurt yall, those his baby girls and he feels like he’s there to protect them! Trina has cut him to his core!

    Baby boy: slowly coming out of his shell, My God, how I wish I had a Odessa in my life, I need a earth angel like that RIGHT NOW! her and Lupe, they saved each other..

    See yall soon….

  72. 1magine, ATL Ga. says:

    Some were hinting that this episode was the “Season Finale”, I don’t think so, don’t see anything that hints around to it in the subject/title line.

  73. Odell says:

    I just caught up with all the Episodes. I have to say that Cheryl L. West has really outdone herself with the writing! It got better and better. She is truly gifted, I agree with everyone else this show will do great on OWN, I mean Oprah is always stressing about we having positive images on Tell a Lie to your Vision. This is a great show that doesn’t go overboard with the stereotypes. I have to thank Monique for having Mr. Robert Townsend on her show that’s how I heard about it. Oprah will be a great Home for the show.

  74. mary s. says:

    Yes, Leon and the Peoples will appear at Santos Party House….if you have seen his videos on tube tube u know it will be a blast

  75. Lorine W. Calhoun says:

    Love the series. Can’t belived it is over. Got so use to checking in every Thursdays. No one can stop a good thing. Keep up the good work. The Academy will recongize u. We all love u always,

  76. CARRIE says:

    WoW! Over the last 2 days, I have watched the entire Series of Diary of a Single Mom and I am not only inspired, I am encouraged. I used to be a single mom…….struggling. My son is now 19 and I have been married to a christian man for over 7 years. I am no longer struggling because God gave me the strength to keep moving forward. Robert Townsend, know that your talents are seen and heard. I thank you and God for the indirect gifts that you have shared with me and so many others. Robert, may God continue to bless you as you bless others. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!

  77. branumee says:

    So Sad!!!!!! Was this the last episode of the season? I’ve been checking for a new episode for the last two weeks. SAY IT AINT SO…..LOL

  78. Stephanie says:

    I have been trying all day to see this epp. I’m not sure why,but I can not get it to play. Can someone post what happened detail for detail please? If Mike appeared in this epp, please don’t leave that out.

  79. Sandran says:

    Awesome series – always have my box of tissues handy while watching.

  80. Sandran says:

    Awesome series — keep them coming.

  81. Margo says:

    Woooowwwww!!! What another GREAT production. When did you say this was going to be a TV series or Movie!? Praying for it. Continue to do what you do. Love these webisodes. God Bless!!!

  82. Kendra says:

    This series is amazing. I just sat here and watched the entire 3rd Season. This programming is so much better than the shows they have on t.v. nowadays that have absolutely no substance.

    Robert Townsend it is great to see you back on the scene in a big way!

  83. Shelby says:

    Where’s the next episode? Please don’t tell me this is the end of the season….

  84. SandRose says:

    I’m finally caught up on all three seasons…… Mr. Townsend you’re a class act! Thank you for real TV!

  85. aracelis Ortiz says:

    Hooray for season three !!! Love it. Thank you Mr. Townsend for a GREAT show. !!

  86. Jovania says:

    Diary of a Single Mom is a story that is familar to many. It is so real, and is a story that needs to be seen by many. I thank you for this awesome creation.

  87. Keshia says:

    can someone tell me when the new shows are going to air cause its been a while since the last show “Friday”.

  88. ohsotrue says:

    Mr. Townsend, you can’t continue to have me crying at work, but these are good tears so I will keep crying. ;-D A quote from Ocean, “Sometimes I feel like everyone owns apart of my house but me.” I have lived that moment and know that feeling. Who knew, just when I thought I was the only one to ever feel that way here it is in one sentence. Spoken words with so much meaning.

  89. T says:

    I love this show but recently I haven’t watched it b/c the show keeps pausing and it’s very FRUSTRATING. My internet works fine on other sites. I don’t understand what’s going on.

  90. Synatria says:

    thank you Robert, I love these episodes,they are the best and your creativity is the best

    blessings to you

  91. Lee says:

    When I started watching the first season…I could not stop…I was so glad that there weren’t any interruptions; commercials. I love this show and I keep wanting more…NETWORKS, HERE COMES ANOTHER ONE OF ROBERT TOWNSEND’S GREATS!

  92. Bre says:

    ummm plz give an update about when new shows will start airing..i keep checking back periodically…thanks!:)

  93. Katelyn says:

    Oh my gosh this was my first time ever seeing this and i like really like it. I’m looking forward to seeing it again.


  94. Mone't says:

  95. Mzshel says:

    I am so looking forward to the next season

  96. Veronica says:

  97. Tasha C says:

  98. Tasha C says:

    When are the new shows coming? I’m so glad I found this online, but I’m going through withdrawal :(

  99. mary s. says:

    Congratulations Diary of a single Mom award for Indie Soap of the Year. Congrats to Robert Townsend and Monica Calhoun taking home the win for Oustanding Lead Actress.
    I would like to thank all the stars on the show, for without you Diary would not have won. Congrats and thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  100. Victoria Elbert says:

    Robert, you did it again! Thank you. Diary of a Single Mom is absolutely wonderful! You have a new web-viewing fan! ~vise~

  101. Devonna E. says:

    I love this show! Incredible acting and writing! These 15 minute films are more in depth than most shows on tv. Thank you Mr.Townsend!!!!!!!!!
    I can’t believe I just found out about this show yesterday and that I’ve watched all the episodes within 24hrs. I’m hooked. Leon you still make my heart go {{{{{{{{{{{^^^^^^^((((((( :o ). Looking forward to future episodes.

  102. Edwina says:

    This is a truly amazing series! I am happy that it is on the web, that it has a great cast, and that it is directed by my favorite director. You are providing not only fantastic entertainment, but enlightenment on topics that many of us face today. Thank you Robert Townsend; keep up the great work. I am in awe.

  103. Mr Townsend, let me put it as clearly as I know how, you are a national treasure. Your tireless efforts to communicate the joys and pains we encounter in this life is not loss on this viewer. You have consistently and unashamedly addressed the appropriateness of absolutes as it pertains to the moral dimensions of the human character. God’s grace, mercy and faith take center stage in your projects and are a breath of reality. Moreover, what you continue to do is and will always be an affront to the juggernaut of secular and commercial culture that dominates the airwaves today.

    Right on! Brother Townsend and all who have labored with you on this project, especially Ms. Calhoun

    I am anxious to see more.

    May God richly bless you and yours.

  104. Lynn says:

    This is a good show. It needs to be at least an hour. I hope it can start coming on tv.

    I am hoping and praying that Trina isn’t pregnant by Senior. Ocean can’t take anymore. I think that would absolutely crush her. She does need to let Mike in just a little more. There need to be more men like Mike that aren’t just characters in a tv show.

  105. Lila says:

    I love this series! I watched all 3 in 1 day! Looking forward to new episodes coming soon? I hope….read in an interview that Mr. Townsend was pitching to tvOne for a 1hour episode special, to see if it does well on cable. Please Please Please advertise because I wanna see what ever comes next!

  106. Lisa Washington says:

    Just watched all 3 seasons and LOVE this! Thanks Mr. Townsend for more great stories with meaning, messages and character. Speaking of character, Billy Dee is tearing up the screen with his acting. Nice to see him not so ‘smooth’. If there was any doubt, the man can ACT! I’m hoping Mr. Townsend will be making a guest appearance in season 4. (hopefully coming soon!) I laughed, I cried…I jacked some of the quotes and used them as my Face Book statuses! (and will post links to this show as well.)

    I have heard the news that this show may get picked up by TV One and hope that it does for the exposure, but also worry that the rawness and REALness of the program may get watered down as can happen with broader based TV shows. This show is great as it so don’t let them change it!

    An old fan of Robert Townsend and new fan of this show,


    P.S. Also just learned that RT directed Holiday Heart. LOVED that as well. Looks like you can do no wrong Mr. T. Keep up the good work. I am inspired. :)

    One other comment: I love and appreciate the fact that there are links to resources mentioned in the shows on the side of the screen on this website. A GREAT idea and something that I hope will be incorporated WHEN this show hits the t.v. circuit.

    Peace & Love,

    Oh my goodness I LOVE this show so much! The world needs to see this show. Please bring season 4 soon! I have to show this to all my friends. Especially my teen mom friends. They would be so inspired by Ocean. She is so strong.

  112. Rise' says:

    My sister recently told me about this show and I am soooo glad she did. When she told me that Robert Townsend was involved I just had to see it. I loved this show and watched all three seasons in one day, I just couldn’t turn it off. When does season four begin? I plan to tell everyone that I know about this show. Also, it was good to see all of the actors that I grew up watching. It’s good to know that they still have IT.

  125. LBowman says:

    Great show! Like everyone else, I’m sorry it’s only 12-20 minutes and it appears to be over so soon. Such real life situations and great acting! Love the story lines and great seeing Billy Dee, Richard Roundtree, Diahann Carroll, Monica Calhoun and even Janice Lynde and John Reilly from the soaps. Not familiar with the actress who plays Lupe but she does a wonderful job. Also very nice that Janice Lynde took time to write and send blessings out to the audience. God Bless you also! Keep up the great work Robert and company. Can’t wait for season 4!

  126. Carol Keomanila says:

  138. giagirl says:

    This is truly a great show and I hope to see a lot more of it. Hopefully, it will become a television series.

  139. Sharon says:

    WOW…that’s about all I can say after watching this entire season three. Robert Townsend, we need you back on television and in Hollywood, making sitcoms, movies, documentaries, whatever it will take, to awaken our minds and hearts. The cast was terrific! God bless you for a job well done!

  140. sja says:

    When will the 4th season air! I can’t wait! I love this show. There isn’t anything on t.v.comparable to it. Keep up the good work.

  141. Ijones says:

    I can’t wait until season 4. This show had me so addicted. Its a shame they we don’t support our own shows enough and if this was on TV it would have been canceled first season. Were busy watching reality TV about rich folks who’s lives are all messed up so they hide hurt behind spending money. You’ve done a great job writing this show.

  142. Philip Suggs says:

    Diary of a Single Mom is definitely a work of art. The story line and the characters are all gripping and intriguing. I can only hope that more is available. In any event, Mr. Townsend, job well done!

  143. News info…

    I was reading the news and I saw this really interesting info…

  144. Carla says:

    WOW! Diary of a Single Mom! I felt this show was speaking to and about me on so many levels. I’ve spent the last 2 days watching all 3 seasons.

    Mr. Townsend, I commend and appreciate YOU! Keep up the good work and I really hope that there is a Season 4.

    Blessings Always,


  145. Jay says:

    What I find disappointing about this show is that there is no season four. I have spread the news about this series to more than a few of my friends, both make and female, in attempt to shed some light on this series. This story says volumes, and needs to be heard. If only Tyler Perry productions could be as good.

  146. Melissa says:

    Watching diary of a single mom has changed my outlook on life. Awesome, i am thankful for my friend that sent me the link, i cant waite to see the new episodes

  147. ToRealLanigan says:

    I really hpe this comes on again i really like this show an i just got done watching all the seasons in one day i couldnt stop watching them there just so addicting and once you start you cant stop

  148. kishia says:

    Wonderful show! This show is better than any reality show on tv. This show tells how real life really is. It portrays the good and the ugly. It really brings back good tv show. Mr. Townsend your idea and directing have proved you to be one of the better black directors.

  149. claressa davis says:

    Omg just finish every episode why haven’t this made it to Television< call Oprah now, shes needs this on OWN. Mr Townsend you have got a hit show, I am so hooked please tell me there are more episodes to come the cast oh I just love them, looking forward to seeing more, and thanks too my son Ben for e-mailing me this site thumbs UP alright alright alright MR Townsend

  150. [...] to watch in the form of WebTV.  To my surprise and joy, I did.  I stumbled upon shows like Diary of a Single Mom, 12 Steps to Recovery, Truth Unspoken, and The Mis-adventures of Awkward Black Girl.  These shows [...]

  151. Love this show. I just started watching it last night and I could not “out it down.” I stayed up all night watching each and every show. What a POWERFUL series. The writing, acting and story lines are nothing short of amazing. Please advise,.when is season four going to begin?? I so love this show and I am hooked!! Thank YOU all for reflecting the truth about the life of a single mother..I feel stronger because of this show and I pray you are bringing it back …………PLEASE:)

  152. Cassandra says:

    Oh my goodness, I just sat here and watched all three seasons. Finally a series that speaks to our everyday struggles as single moms, as well as giving solutions, hope and even some patience. When will Season four start and will Robert Townsend get this series picked up on cable. Or better yet, can I get the seasons on dvd.

  153. BBlk2 says:

    I just found this show from watching the movie on Netflix. I have sat here and watched all three seasons in 2 days!!!! This story was so powerful and on the dime about the struggles that women have every day. I can’t wait for season 4 because this story needs to continue. Thank you Robert Townsend for a true & well put together story!!!

  154. Tracy says:

    I am really so speechless because as a single mother it seems like your life is a mini-series. Mr Townsend I hope you continue the show this has given me something to look forward to with such positive energy. The cast is great!

  155. Kae says:

    This show is great!!! But, as with all things Townsend there’s no follow thru…what’s up?? It always seems to me that anything Townsed starts, he puts tons of energy into at first, then suddenly stops!!! I’d love for Oprah to pick this up, her network could use a good drama!!!

  156. LaTosha says:

    Please God let there be more. This was a wonderful show and it seems that it is over. The eposides are so full of true life, drama, hope, struggle, etc. Robert you did your thing with this show I truly hope that it can continue.

  157. Candis says:

    I just found out about this show 2 weeks ago…but I have completed all 3 seasons. I really enjoyed this show. The stories are so touching and real. I hope this is not the end of this programming. There is so much more you can do with these characters. I love Monica Calhoun! She is a very good actress. Please let me know when season 4 will be on. Thank you for the beautiful portrayal of single moms trying to make it in a world when the world is constantly trying to pull them under!

  158. Erika says:

    I was looking up websites that help single mothers and I came across the show. I watched all 3 seasons in two days. Would have been one day but I am a single mom so I had to stop last night and take care of my children. This show has inspired me in so many ways. I am going through the roughest time in my life. This series has given me the strength to keep moving on. Thank You Mr.Townsend for showing the world what we single mother’s go through. I am starting a single mother’s group in my town so we can help one another. Single mom’s start a group in your town we need to pull together. God would want it that way. Keep your heads up!

  160. LJ Hall says:

    I love this show. I need more. Great show

  161. Kendra J says:

    God always sends me something to learn from when I need it the most and this show was it. I watched all three seasons today and I have a new outlook because I have been going through a rough moment in my life and this show has made me remember that a storm doesn’t last forever. I hope a new season comes out and I hope that this can reach all the single mothers out there that may want to give up but they don’t.

  162. Angie says:

    I was hoping this show came back. I absolutely loved it!!!!

  163. Pia says:

    I hate when I start watching a show, get hooked, and then they leave me hanging lol. Please bring this show back!!! Such a good series with a good message. I see people campaigning for Oprah to put this on her network…. but I’d like to see it on tvone or that Gospel network that has a lot of uplifting programs.
