Love the show
Awful show. Terrible script with even worse acting. All of season 1 could have been summed up in 2 hours. Very disappointing, I usually like Tyler Perry’s stuff. Not this time.
I love “Too Close to Home.” Please don’t take it off tv. I look forward to watching this show every Tuesday night.
I Love the show “Too Close to Home”. Please don’t take it off the air. If you think you need to change something about the show change it. Don’t take it off tv though.
Where are they finding these actors for Too Close to Home?! The concept of the show is great but the actors are TERRIBLE!
I do wish you showed more of DC and the white house. Get out of the trailer park more.
season 2 is starting slow and weak. storyline was better with White House and need less trailer park. Adding weak black trailer park characters…big mistake. Not interesting or likable. I`ve already lost interest in Season 2.
I liked the show was disappointed when it was finished. Hope you bring it back.
How are these ratings accurate when this horrible show was renewed and they claimed to have 4.2 million viewers. TLC has to be lying on that.
Allen from Torrance CA. I really have to tell you my opinion on this show ” Too close to home” I’m a little disappointed about how this is put together. The characters are so dramatic and the scenes are drawn out too long. The dramatic music needs to be dropped, it is distracting, and it never stops. It doesn’t feel realistic, I know it’s just a shoe but few things needs to be changed. The gay guy Dex acts way to gay and flirty and it seems overboard, Annie is a good actress and so is her older sister. The… Read more »
I enjoy the show to some extent but find it very slow. For one.. the White House was only in 1 episode and we haven’t seen any more. It is all about what is happening in Happy, Al not about the scandal. Where is the media following Anna? The acting… where do I start, it sucks! I like Brody’s character but his acting sucks. He has no emotions. The only real actor I feel is sincere is Bonnie. I do like Shelby’s character as well.. but the show seems to be more about what is happening in the trailer park… Read more »
Great show, the acting is amazing, intense story line that hits sone real issues
This show is slow and boring. Has a chance at a good juicy storyline, but crappy execution. They’ve done 4 shows, and it all could have been done in an hour. Don’t know if I’ll continue…I wouldn’t make a point of watching this right on Mondays, been watching on Demand. If I miss an episode, I won’t miss much.
This is an example a overworked and untalented writer. The plot is like every other show you made. OK I we all have seen this before and why do all women have to be betrayed so pooly. The acting is the worse. And why would anyone believe this is the white house with that cheap furniture. Scrap this please it’s horrible
Boy this is terrible acting. I thought I had seen the worst, but no. This show destroys them all. They could have just stood there reading from the script.
this will be the top show on TLC
