Earlier this week, Tyler Perry posted the above photo on his Instagram account announcing the arrival of his new talk show, Tyler: The Tyler Perry Show,  with the following caption: “Look what I’m working on. Coming on next Tuesday after The Haves And The Have Nots, only on OWN.”

Last year, we reported that the famed director-actor-producer was working on a cartoon series and a talk show, which he described to the Huffington Post as a mashup  between Dr. Phil  and Andi Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

This new endeavor would be Perry’s fifth program on Oprah Winfrey’s network.  OWN already airs the hugely popular The Have and The Have Nots  and Love Thy Neighbor.  For Better or Worse  and the forthcomng Single Mom’s Club, which is based on the upcoming movie of the same name, round out the other two series.

No word yet on potential guests or show themes but like you, I will be glued to my television when the show airs Tuesday, Feb. 25.

In the meantime, check out a clip of Perry in action when he hosted a talk show “special” promoting Why Did I Get Married Too  featuring singer-actress, Janet Jackson.
