At this point it would be safe to say Oprah has found her golden ticket in Tyler Perry and she will be damned if she lets him go. Ever.

Yesterday, Tyler posted the pic above on Twitter, along with this major television announcement:

Apparently, the writer/director/producer/playwright/actor will now be adding talk show host to his long list of titles, thanks to his major success on the Oprah Winfrey Network during the past year. Actually, it wasn’t even a full year ago that we announced Oprah and Tyler’s first television projects on OWN: The Haves and The Have Nots and Love Thy NeighborThe Haves and The Have Nots debuted May 28, 2013 and became OWN’s highest-rated series debut ever, which led to the network doubling the series, and ending season 1 as the most-watched scripted telecast on OWN ever with 2 million viewers. Love Thy Neighbor fell right behind in second place in terms of debut viewership, which is why we weren’t totally surprised when Oprah announced a third series from TP: “Single Mom’s Club,” based on the feature film by the same name hitting theaters in March.

This talk show, though, is an entirely different beast and we’re kinda shocked it’s happening so soon. But when you have a cash cow like Tyler Perry finally making your network profitable three years into its existence, I’m sure you want to milk it for all it’s worth.

What do you think about the Tyler Perry Show concept? Any speculation on what type of show it’ll be?
