by Donald Deane, posted Mar 22nd 2010 1:00PM
Michael Jackson died while sister Janet was filming Tyler Perry's upcoming movie 'Why Did I Get Married Too?' And, according to Janet, she channeled her grief over his death into her performance, and found comfort from Perry during this upsetting time, she said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC).

In Perry's movie, Janet plays a successful psychologist whose marriage begins to unravel. Her portrayal, she said, was fueled in no small part by the traumatic news of her brother's passing.

Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009 - Wednesday December 9, 10 pm, Global/ABC

Babs' annual love-in raises the bar a little this year - or is it just that 2009 was a really bizarre year? The short list includes four people I would confidently call lunatics (though some use their crazy for good and others for evil) including Sarah Palin, Adam Lambert, Kate Gosselin and Lady Gaga. Tyler Perry is also on the list and I can't wait to see how Walters handles him. Tyler, if you are reading this, I beg you to do the interview in Madea drag. Brett Favre and Glenn Beck from the world of sports round out the published list. The top three fascinators will be revealed during the broadcast. Who wants to do a pool? My picks are Robert Pattinson, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

Tyler Perry's 'Meet the Browns' Headed to Syndication

Meet the Browns'Meet the Browns' -- meet syndication.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the TBS sitcom -- which already has over 40 episodes under its belt -- will start airing on several of the major networks next fall, including Fox and CBS.

Meanwhile, Variety is also reporting that Fox stations in New York, Dallas, Houston and Washington, D.C. are confirmed, and a total of 70 percent of U.S. households will be meeting the 'Browns' in syndication.

The TV series stems from a play that Tyler Perry first debuted in 2004, which subsequently spawned a feature film. 'Browns' currently airs Wednesday nights at 10PM.

The move is somewhat unprecedented, considering the show (now in its third season) premiered in January. It also marks a rare occurrence, in which a cable series is making a jump to the major networks, and not the other way around.

Are We There Yet? coming to TBS, and bringing Terry Crews with it

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 15th 2009 5:04PM
Terry CrewsTBS started the 100-episode order with the Tyler Perry family of sitcoms. And now they're at it again with a similar offer on the table for a television adaptation of Ice Cube's film Are We There Yet? Even better, they've nabbed Everybody Hates Chris' Terry Crews to play Nick, the role Ice Cube played in the film and its sequel.

Crews was always the funniest character on Everybody Hates Chris, and seeing him as the fish out of water marrying into an instant family should give him plenty of opportunity for laughs. It's nice to see that shows featuring predominantly African American casts are still being developed somewhere since they've left network television completely now with the cancellation of The CW's comedies.

Breaking news - Oprah and Tyler Perry are crazy rich! - VIDEO

by Eliot Glazer, posted Mar 9th 2009 6:01PM
oprah tyler perry money cars rich mogul madea gayle kingBless Oprah Winfrey's soul for all the good work she does in the name of bettering humanity. She gets people to read, she gives poor kids scholarships, she reaches out to victims of environmental disaster, and, of course, there was that time she gave a new car to everyone in her audience. She's a money fairy out to save the world, and we applaud her for it.

But then there are times when Oprah's weird side comes out, when that unique connection she so strongly maintains with her audience - both in the studio and viewers at home - is broken in favor of reminders that, oh yeah, Planet Oprah might not be such a crazy notion. The lady probably uses $100 bills to clean her teeth. And, in case you'd forgotten, she and buddies Gayle King and Tyler Perry will remind you, as they did while palling around on Friday's show, on which Oprah retold a super-nauseating story about Perry giving her the most incredibly unnecessary gift a media mogul could ever not hope for.

Perry will serve as an executive producer, writer, and director. He might possibly appear in future episodes in a guest role.
