0000054015_20090106163458Tyler Perry’s sitcom Meet the Browns is on its way to broadcast television, according to several inside sources. After only 15 months on the air? Yes, indeed.

The syndication company Debmar-Mercury’s deal puts the sitcom in more than 70% of the country for a mid-September debut on major station groups, including Fox, Tribune, CBS and Cox, based on buzz from the Hollywood Reporter.

The series is #1 on TBS among adults under age 49, so its natural that bigger networks want to grab this valuable viewing market.

We actually think House of Payne is the stronger show in terms of writing and characters (as far as characters get with Perry involved anyway) but hey, we’re rooting for its success all the same.
