Nov 16, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The Tyler Perry TBS sitcom "Meet the Browns" is headed to first-run syndication in the fall, after clearing stations covering 70 percent of the country, Variety reports.

Creative syndicator Debmar-Mercury, the company which has helped craft the Tyler Perry deals with TBS, has sold the show to the Fox-owned stations in New York, Dallas, Houston and Washington, D.C., the article says.

Furthermore, according to the report, "In addition to ‘Meet the Browns,’ Debmar is poised to launch two more series that will bow on cable and, if successful, move quickly into firstrun: ‘Are We There Yet,’ featuring Ice Cube, for TBS; and an untitled project starring Jon Heder that will bow on Comedy Central."

  1. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
