Meet the Browns follows the misadventures of Tyler Perry’s beloved Leroy Brown. When Brown’s father, Pop Brown, dies and leaves Brown his old house, Brown discovers a letter asking him to “Take care of the old--” Brown later discovers that there was a second page that finished that sentence: “--Thunderbird in the garage”. By then it’s too late, he’s already opened “Brown Meadows”, a home for seniors.

Thinking he’s carrying out his daddy’s wishes, Brown enlists the help of Cora (his daughter), Will (his nephew), and Will’s wife, Sasha, a nurse. Soon, because of a fire at a nearby seniors home, Brown Meadows is filled and Brown is overwhelmed.

His new residents include Miss Daisy (an aging B-movie actress who lives in the past, and the many different characters she played in her career), Colonel Cleophus Jackson (an ex-Marine who won’t give Brown an inch), and Ms. Edna (who’s still very in touch with her sexuality, like “Blanche” in Golden Girls).

Soon, they are joined by the handyman, Jesús, who's studying to be a lawyer and two foster children, Brianna and Joaquin, who have been tossed around from home to home. Brianna and Joaquin finally find refuge in Brown’s house even though it seems to be an odd match. Finally, the gorgeous and not-too-smart London Sheraton (a very spoiled celebrity/heiress) is brought to Brown Meadows to serve her community service for a DUI conviction.

With a lot of laughter and some lessons about life, Brown and the residents of Brown Meadows learn to live with and love each other.

    I was sitting at home bored the other evening flipping channels and I came across Tyler Perry's "Meet the Browns" television sitcom. With nothing else to watch I decided to give the show a try, the worst mistake of my life. The show was terrible. I couldn't decide which was worse the very annoying laugh track that seemed to go off every 5 seconds at what was supposed to be humor or the idiot dressed in very tightly fitting clothes who seems to be slightly retarded. How can such a great writer in Tyler Perry who has found success in making us laugh and opening our eyes to the struggles of everyday life with his great stage plays and movies fall so far off base with this terrible television show. At this point in his career I'm sure he has people who write and direct some of his productions for him, I would hate to believe that he writes the material for "Meet the Browns." This show is an embarrassment and a dark cloud over all of the successful things that he has produced thus far in his career. With there being a major shortage of African-American sitcoms on television now days its very sad that "Meet the Browns" is all we have to represent us to the world. When I hear the name of that show all I can think about is the seemingly out of shape black man, dressed up in skin tight clothing, with a very high pitched voice who doesn't seem to have any kind of education. Sure, you may say, "stop trippin' that its just a television show," but to some its symbolic of how far the black man has fallen from prominence. They laugh at us, saying that they have us right where they want us. Don't get me wrong, I know that it didn't began with this show and I know it doesn't end with this show. There is enough blame to go around 1000 times over and honestly I think the blame game has gotten old, I think it's time for the change game. It's time to turn our backs on negative media and I mean that for everyone. Any rapper, singer entertainer or athlete that promotes Black Hate we should stop supporting. Lets stop listening to and buying music and movies that promote hatred of our people and especially our women by calling them B's and H's or saying that we should use and play them or media that promotes them as being only sexual objects and not the Queens that they truly are. Its time we become more conscience of this hate media that we've been supporting for years now. Lets demand change from the radio and television stations and tell them we don't want to hear it or see it any longer. Lets start standing for something instead of nothing, regain our voice that has be silent for almost 4 decades now. We need our Women to be Ladies and we men must treat them as such and we need our Men to be Men and start acting as such. Once we end the division we can then stop being conquered

    Please bring back Meet the Browns. I watch this show including repeats over all the other shows. Sometimes I just want to laugh without a sermon that is so apparent when an episode begins. Let's have fun again. You have other shows for that, we just want to laugh and the Mann's a a beautiful couple. Watch someone else pick them up from you if you don't push back.

    Hello Mr. Perry I just want to let you know that the show Meet the Browns is a wonderful show, and at the same time the show has open doors for topics at the High School I work at. I can take a clip from a show dealing with drugs and education and compare it the the real life of some of my students. You have been a wonderful blessing to me and I understand were you are going when you are writing each show. I ask that you keep doing what God has called you to do. P.S. PLEASE BRING BACK THE BROWNS!!! I notice that when you can look at the world from the youth and see what they have to go through as young men and woman all you can say is God have you way in me, to show the students that their is a difference in how you can live you life.
