    I love the show. If it was not for the soul man show I wouldn’t watch tvland channel cause their other shows are boring and not funny.

    I’m really glad “The Soul Man” is being renewed for a third season. I think the show is funny and that Cedric and Niecy make a great pair. I watch TV land a lot, and this is definitely one of my shows.

    What a waste of such great talents. Niecy and Cedric are doing their best keeping viewers interested despite substandard scripts. Most of the episodes I have watched are so banal/ predictable. Please somebody kick the writers’ lethargic asses and get them alert and oriented before network brass pull the plug.

    I agree that SOUL MAN and HAPPILY DIVORCED are the same as ratings wise
    I like Fran Dreschler alot but how many time can she make sitcoms based on her life (The sitcom berofre this one and after the nanny was based on her life ) and also she carry her cast mates form show to show
    I am waiting for an oringinal concept from her I knw she can do it
    DOUL MAN IS A GOOD AHOW I AM GLAD THEY KEPT IT

    I like The Soul Man and I am happy it got renewed but Happily Divorced had about the same or a little better ratings and it got canceled. That doesn’t make sense?

    THEY RENEW THE WORST SHOW ON THE TV LAND LINE UP AND CANCEL “HAPPILY DIVORCED”…WOW… “SOUL MAN” HAS A GOOD CAST BUT IS THE WORST SHOW…
