9. The Paynes (2018 – )

The spinoff to House of Payne is by no means perfect, but then very few modern American sitcoms are these days.

8. Iyanla: Fix My Life (2012 – )

It’s the sort of show that was designed to be watched at about 2pm with a big bag of bon-bons while you should be doing something much more urgent and important.

7. Oprah: Where Are They Now? (2012 – )

If you’re a fan of The Oprah Winfrey Show, this retrospective addition to it is a nice companion piece in which many of the most famous and infamous guests from the 25 years of the show are revisited to see what they’re up to today.

6. Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s (2011 – )

 It offers everything you could ever want (including spotlighting familial drama and the occasional mouth-watering recipe) and is the best guilty pleasure on the network.

5. If Loving You Is Wrong (2014 – )

One of Tyler Perry’s many shows on this list is as sexy, sleek, and scandalous as it is surprisingly heartfelt. Centered around a middle-class community of friends and couples who seem superficially perfect

4. Our America with Lisa Ling (2011 – )

Provoking discussion and encouraging an open mind, Lisa Ling’s docuseries is immensely underrated as the ex co-host of The View travels America to immerse herself into a variety of different lifestyles, cultures, personalities, and perspectives.

3. Greenleaf (2016 – )

Starring Winfrey alongside the always spectacular Keith David (They Live), religious drama Greenleaf is a soapy delight full of an endless series of salacious scandals that are brimming beneath the facade of a Memphis megachurch. There are love triangles, infidelity, revenge, and heaps of simmering resentments to enjoy.

2. The Haves and Have Nots (2013 – )

There’s something ever-so slightly telenovela to The Haves and the Have Nots that we absolutely adore. Though the drama can be plentiful and extreme, it never feels at odds with the overall tone of this primetime soap opera from Perry (again)

1. Queen Sugar (2016 – )

Centered around an estranged set of siblings who join forces after a family tragedy, the show features slow and purposeful plotting that grants bold emotional depth to the characters and incredible performances
