TBS Thursday ordered 70 additional episodes of the Tyler Perry-produced comedy series Meet The Browns.

The series, a spinoff of Perry's popular House Of Payne, averaged 3.4 million viewers through the first eight installments of its initial 10-episode run, including 4.2 million viewers in its Jan. 7 debut.
The series, starring David Mann as lead character Leroy Brown, ranks second only to Fox's American Idol among television's top series in January delivery of African-American viewers, households, adults 18-34, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.

This is the second major episode commitment TBS has made to a Perry-penned series. The network greenlit an unprecedented 100 episodes to House Of Payne in 2006 and added another 26-episode run last year.

"Tyler Perry has once again created a series that resonates with an enormous audience," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. in a statement. "Meet The Browns is a perfect match with House of Payne, giving TBS a great lineup on Wednesday nights for years to come."
