Friends and Family Hustle

T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle debuted on Oct. 22 to strong ratings for the VH1 spinoff. But the show's ratings fell off as viewers slowly tune out.

The reality TV series features Tip "T.I." Harris, 39, his estranged wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 42, and their 7 children.

Also featured on the show are Tiny's friends, singers Monica Brown, center, reality TV star Toya Wright, right, and LeToya Luckett (pictured top left).

According to TV by the Numbers, 'Friends and Family Hustle' was neck and neck with Bravo's "Real Housewives of Orange County" with each grabbing 1.3 million viewers and 0.6 and 0.5 respectively in the all-important 18-49 age demographic.

But Family Hustle's ratings dipped to 1.2 million viewers on Monday, while RHOOC climbed a percentage point to 0.6 with 1.4 million viewers.

    Shiiit; did I start ??!

  • hottlanta

    Never seen the show a day in my life.

  • Ms..N

    Here comes T.I cheating rumors in to get the ratings up!! Lol

    Question: Did you stop watching T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle and, if so, why?
    It just kind of irked me. I dont have the time to watch all this staged for TV foolishness. Either you are scripted or you arent. I caught up on Greenleaf and I am awaiting on the arrival of several books so I will busy.

  • SayWhatNow?

    Greenleaf is sooooo damn good! I can't wait until tonight! Oh and I wish LeToya wore her hair like her characters hair on Greenleaf, in real life.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I feel it's too many people to focus on in the cast. They need to get rid of one cast member in particular. I swear she's like watching paint dry.

    I love Letoya she is a reality show dream.

  • Trey

    I watched Outlaw King on Netflix because I wanted to see good acting....

  • Bossy704

    I saw the one with all the children and it was necessary to portray positive, relevant images of black families. As far as these other folks - sing me a song, play the piano...something creative not about your clothes. Thanks.

  • Yoni7

    I haven't seen one episode of it. On the RARE time that I had to come home and watch TV, I opted to do sight words with my Grand-Sun instead.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Never watched it. I saw a clip a little white ago of Tiny and TI standing in the kitchen talking about his most recent public exploits. Although, I understand that Tiny is grown and she is choosing to stay with his azz, I'm still not about to watch him manipulate and emotionally abuse her. Nope. Not with the shyts.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I think its because viewers are over-saturated with the Atlanta lifestyle and these particular women...the ladies on this show are literally always on explore pages on get tired of seeing the same old faces especially if you see them modeling fashion nova-esque clothes on your IG timeline all damn day...

  • WutizstillHERE!


  • MsSapphire9800

    Why waste your relaxing time watching a serial cheater, a forgiven wife and her scripted friends. When can watch the news ---go to bed..wake up...go to work and read about it on blogs.

  • Yoni7

    Girl I haven't been on IG in about three weeks. Iz tiyah'd.

  • Yoni7

    Sis! Sis! SIIIIISSSSS!!!! That post is down yonder. LOL

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Its so redundant now I try not to go on there especially at night and the competing sites post the same videos...or if you want to see an airbrushed woman bending substance whatsoever just shallow gratification smh...

  • ohdearme

    Never watched, won't watch. The End.

  • Yoni7

    I tend to miss the stuff that everybody else see's. I'll just keep coming here daily (because I'm at work) for my fixes.

  • Faithz

    Monica look like cash money in that
    blond hair, plaid outfit.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm surprised Monica is even on this show. As big a star as she's been in the past, this show seems a little beneath her, to be honest.

  • Hill Candy

    Or pushing the "Flattummy" tea that they supposedly use. SMH

  • CrunchyBlack1

    If these celebs limited their social media presence. They'd build an air of mystery and people would want to see behind the veil, so to speak.

    Let Jordan do some special, series or speaking engagement.. it'd do numbers.

  • Kimberly

    I watch it, but they need more of LeToya Luckett and her new hubby and less of T.I. and Tiny, IMO.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Ive deactivated my Facebook again. So when you can if you can tell me if you can see me, I would appreciate it lmao. My damn ex done started trying to contact me and I dont need that negative energy messing up MY holiday blessings lol

  • FukkFolks2018

    About the hair. SAME FEELING and wish

  • bran

    Classical narc and co-dependent crap. When homegirl jumped on the radio show for a morning interview after she saw him and "Hoopz" together, I knew she was not going anywhere anytime soon. Not judging because I have been there but that said, it make me sad to see it from the outside looking in. Very draining to watch.

  • Trace da Ace

    I never watched is on my Tvo listings...I will get to it on a very slow day...

  • Dowoop

    I've been binge watching The Blacklist the past couple of weeks.

  • Coffy

    I will never watch anything with him in it and she is an embarrassment as a woman.

  • Kimocha

    Yea... I only watched the first episode and decided I wasn't gonna be watching it anymore... I just can't stand T.I.!... Maybe if he wasn't in it I would continue to watch... but they show him too much... So I change the channel.

  • Reina1718

    They need to take T.I. off the show, everyone else is fine.

  • Reina1718


  • Sassie

    Monica STAY hiding those little stick legs, don't she, LOL....anyway, I never watched cuz T.I and his speech and antics just rub me ALL the wrong way. I like Tiny though.

  • Y me?

    They look cute in the wild n out sweaters

  • Sassie

    I think that's what it is for me, too. I can't stand arrogant trifling ass T.I.

  • Sassie

    But u hit it on the head.....Monica was a bigger star in the PAST. She's not doing much nowadays other than modeling on Instagram and doing her mortician thing.

  • Yoni7

    Whaaaaa????? I ain't been on FB eitha'. I'm in stalking rehab. It's been a whole 48+ hours. LOL #growth

  • Skylar1

    Monica stay fly, pretty. been liking her since college..

  • Yoni7

    Cash money the group?

  • Tomi Ware

    That was my first time ever watching the show. Now I see what social media is referring to when speaking about T.I....... he does seem a little arrogant and not humbling enough about his indiscretions ? I do hope it's different behind closed doors because they do have children and they seem to have a great friendship.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    hmmm... somebody need some fish guts in their mailbox ????? (a steak will just freeze and they'll just tho it on the grill & eat it)

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    here's what i want to know regarding Monica....
    all those producers in the ATL and nobody's working with her on getting new music out? i don't get it. she should at least put out a holiday project. why is no one marketing this talent?

  • Sassie

    Ride or Die = STUPID

  • Karen Brady

    :-). Was this shade? I can be slow at times.

  • Karen Brady

  • Navybeans95

    I just don't care anymore..these people are usually toxic and I don't like to waste my time on watching reality TV or their music...they only care about themselves without morals or direction...

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Never watched it. I cant tiny’s vc speaking vc

    Monica needs to keep dark hair!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Folks getting tired of all this deep fried ghetto crap

  • Yoni7

    From me? No. I was really trying to find out what she meant. I love Monica.

  • Ajavee


  • stav

    No need or desire to watch this mess!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Yes a Xmas record would be spot on for her... but she is a has been and considered ancient by industry standards

  • Tlowe89

    So I had an epiphany a few weeks ago while I was getting my hair done by a friend. We both watch greenleaf, and sorry I never knew that was Leyota Luckett playing the other pastor sister, until her name showed in the opening credits

    Then I said what one got darn minute!!!! So she’s on T.I. and Tiny family and friends and she’s also on greenleaf with T.I. mistress.

    Nahhh man.

    And then I heard someone say that one the 1st episode of family and friends T.I said Tiny wouldn’t have been as upset out the video leaking of him touching that girl on the butt if it hadn’t gone public....

    So basically in a nutshell I think that girl on greenleaf that he was in the video with is probably one of their fun buddies they most likely swing with. And Tiny got upset that he’s out in public flaunting their lifestyle or maybe they have rules such as don’t be taking “our” hoes on dates or outings.

  • Ajavee

    Exactly why you have to die LOL I don't get it nor do I want to get it.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Deep DEEEP FRIED GHETTO CRAP...& They try to be so sophisticated! LOL!!

  • sherri2016

    I’ve never watched any of it no plans too either

  • Strip Club Veteran

    It’s getting old, folks. No one wants to see this scripted bullshit tv.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    All of what you said + the need to make quick $$ for material wealth and attention!

  • City girl

    Yeah Mo is working on her album. She has stated it many times on her Instagram, and has shown clips of her in the studio working with producers. I'm definitely looking forward.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Well T.I.'s dismissive demeanor ain't winning no fan's. Plus people really just like to see how the kids are doing in addition to watching as they grow up into pre-adulthood. This was one of the endearing elements that kept people watching.

  • City girl

    Stick legs? Those gorgeous legs on Monica are modelist.

  • Navybeans95

    Exactly...entertainment has gone too far...I found my

  • No Love Lost

    And working on her album, booking shows, tending to her charity, being an entrepreneur with her clothing line, a mother, and a wife.

  • WhoYouTalkingAbout

    I coudnt even get through the 1st episode... Im good on this one..

  • No Love Lost

    I don't feel it's beneath her. Ti and Tiny are family to her, and it's called family hustle. So I definitely get it. Also besides the show, she has a lot of other things going on, contrary to what these jealous female's are saying.

  • Kimocha

    Yea he is beyond arrogant..

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    well this is good to know! she has a tremendous gift, and i'm here for it.
    thanks for the update!

  • TransMichelle

    Is anybody surprised by this? Dam

  • City girl

    Definitely no problem. Also you're one of my favorite commenters on this blog. I just love your commentary and how you keep your foot on the necks of these trolls. Love it ?

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Its the same ole isht in black communities and black families...and its getting tiresome that these same tired celebrities keep doing the same thing. What's really interesting on this tired azz show anyway? Marriages aren't working, people are separated, baby mamas with different kids by different girlfriends, green wigs, purple pink hair...husbands are not with any of these women. .....We see this isht everyday in real life. We want something more.

  • Connie

    My sweetheart Major is not even on it

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Lol! well thank you.... i do what i can, ROFL!
    (i can at least keep my foot on their virtual necks because they're definitely trying to keep theirs on our literal necks. i do what i can on both fronts just to remind them that I am the 'new south' ...they gotta learn, Lol)

  • rayne215

    its no reason why they need a show.

  • City girl

    ?Love it ?

  • Nik

    I'm reading An American Marriage. It is goodT!

  • SpiceGirl

    Pahahahaha....To answer your question...No...No I have not started ONE show

  • kgirl33

    Is that you Monica!? Lol

  • SumthinSweeter

    ikr :(

  • Angel Harper

    It seems fake. It's scripted and that's why I lost interest.

  • Peace

    Drop the friends. Too much .The kids have grown and the Harris family are entertaining on their own .
    Bad idea to put friends own. They can get they own show.

  • Ree

    It's boring....I love Monica, Toya and LeToya, however, they really serve no purpose on the show. TI and Tiny should just focus on repairing their marriage...out of the eyes of the public. Keep the healing process for themselves.

  • Logan Roberts

    I catch it on my days off sometimes on YouTube when I remember ?

  • kekeb

    I like this show. People are so use to seeing fabricated drama that they can't enjoy ACTUAL reality tv

  • Harley

    I never started and never will

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I can see that happening. I stopped caring after he made Tiny quit their other show...


    Entertainment industry is rough for music artists they haven’t figured out the way in the new market. So they are all trying to get reality tv deals plus when the money low tv money is consistent.

  • AListDiva29

    Monica is naturally pretty, but is starting to look like a drag queen with the overly done makeup and different hair every day!

  • Soon2BWife

    Loose TI and ratings with go up.

  • Chapter29Chick

    & the little girl baby looks just like him 2 me

  • Chapter29Chick

    Same here ???, i have 2 be in the mood for hot mess 2 tune in

  • Chapter29Chick

    Put a show on the tube that brings positivity to the black community, if these people who r consumed with their cash money lives decide to go out and serve the community and stop the ballshat then ill watch

  • Fodderwing

    I’m right there with u on that! Tiny needs to wisen up! Girl could snatch that bag all for her own. Imagine the power move she could make by straight up finally divorcing Tip...and using that as the platform for her new show. All about her rising above the bs and showing women how powerful self esteem in action truly is! Tiny...check mate on the game!

  • Melly

    It’s fake


    stop supporting these black reality shows... they are straight poison!
    every last one of them. they all put us in a negative light... stop supporting these show...

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    The cast is an Odd pairing.. Too many story lines to keep up with.

  • James Hudson

    It’s Played Out. Period point blank.

  • No Love Lost

    I'm just informing these hating @** birds who like to spread negativity.
