The New Normal NBC’s controversial new drama airs tonight with its season premiere. Before the show even premiered a watchdog group blasted it for exposing families to, “the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage.” Nevertheless, the show promises not to be too preachy or political and I am looking forward to seeing it.
The New Normal is a drama filled comedy following the experiences of a gay couple – Bryan and David as they attempt to start a family via down-on-her-luck surrogate Goldie. The rest of the non traditional family includes Bryan’s smart-mouthed assistant Rocky, Goldie’s 8-year-old daughter Shania and her homophobic, racist grandmother Jane whom is called, “the world’s worst in-law.” The mix of personalities might not match everyone’s family portrait but the show is about everyone’s house.
On tonight’s show Shania is working to adapt to her new surroundings and, much to the delight of Bryan, begins impersonating Little Edie from ‘Grey Gardens.’ Later, David and Bryan reminisce about the first time they met and decide to have a night on the town like they did when they were younger.
Elsewhere, Jane finds something disturbing in the boys’ room and enlists Goldie’s (Georgia King) ex-husband Clay to try and woo her granddaughter back to Ohio. Elsewhere, Rocky mistakenly suspects Shania of misbehaving.
Tonight’s season premiere looks like it is going to be great and you won’t want to miss it, so be sure to tune in for our live coverage of NBC’s The New Normal at 9:30 PM EST!
