Tyler Perry Chose Helping Oprah Over Getting His Own Network

What do friends do for friends? They give up having their own television networks to work with each other of course.

As we all know Oprah established the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) on January 1, 2011 and it came off to a rocky start. First the beloved network was shown on so few cable companies, Oprah herself couldn't watch. After that was fixed, the television shows needed work. How many of us young folks wanted to tune in? There was nothing entertaining for us to watch. Finally Oprah started getting it right as other familiar names joined in helping her. Tyler Perry is one of those familiar names.

As a friend Tyler Perry joined in helping save OWN. He did exclusive interviews and his shows that once took over Wednesday nights on TBS have moved to Wednesday nights on OWN, and Tuesday nights too. Well, it's not the same exact shows but you get it. Tyler helped save the network. Initially he was in the works of getting his own network, but he stopped because Oprah is his friend.
