Following the well rated season premiere (to the tune of 1.1 million viewers), Haddon spoke with Praise 102.5 Atlanta and not only responded to Bishop T.D. Jakes, who called the show junk, but said that there simply is “a lot of mess on TV.”
“This is an opportunity for us to produce more shows and really stop talking about it, but be about it. We got a lot of mess on TV. Here is one hour of just good, clean television,” said Haddon. “It may be challenging to religious people, but it’s definitely going to catch the attention of people that need to see it and by the end of the season they’re going to get it.”
According to Haddon, viewers should walk away with a message of hope, redemption and humanity each episode.
“I personally don’t see a problem with anybody driving a Bentley as long as they’re doing the work that God has called them to do,” Haddon went on to say before adding that Oxygen used the cars and homes as bait to get people to watch because preachers just aren’t interesting enough. “It got people talking… People that would never talk about it or haven’t talked about God in a long time. I can give you many testimonies of people that are connecting.”
