"I want to thank my cast — Milo [Ventimiglia], Mandy [Moore], Justin [Hartley], Chrissy [Metz] — you are the best white TV family that I brother has ever had," Brown said. "Better than Mr. Drummond, better than them white folks that raised Webster. I love you," he added, referring to the '70s and '80s series Diff'rent Strokes and Webster.
