TV show description:      
A spin-off of Hot in Cleveland, this sitcom revolves around Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (Cedric the Entertainer). He lives the high life in Las Vegas, placing at the top of the music charts, when he gets “the calling.”

As a result, he decides to relocate to St. Louis with his family to become a preacher in the church of his former minister father, Barton Moses Ballentine (John Beasley). Making the change isn’t as smooth as he expected and must deal with the ups and downs of his church and family life.

Boyce’s wife Lolli (Niecy Nash) — now a beauty salon owner — and daughter Lyric (Jazz Raycole) aren’t exactly thrilled about giving up their fabulous superstar life for a new humble one. Fletcher Emmanuel “Stamps” Ballentine (Wesley Jonathan) is Boyce’s carefree and womanizing younger brother.

    Please keep the show. We all need a laugh. This show is a good concept and lets people realize that people of the ministry and their famiies are human. They experience problems just like the rest of us. The issues are handled with care and lots of humor. Morales are also learned from the show.

    Cancel the show. I am Christian. Although none of us are perfect, we dare not find the antics on this show “acceptable” (i.e. strippers in the church). It is offensive.

    With all the horrible reality show mess all over the air, we NEED to KEEP this show on the air! Watch it before you make a judgement to cancel it! He’s so St. Louis!!!

    Please cancel this show ANd The Exes. At one time tvland could be trusted to show clean wholesome programs but not anymore. I certainly won’t support their advertisers.

    I am not sure…the plot is okay but not very funny unclear if this could change over time not totally ready to dump it. However if I see it….I see it if I don’t that is okay too. I am not going out of my way to watch it
