The new TV season may still be weeks away but NBC is giving fans a chance to watch the premiere episode of the new comedy The New Normal. That is right you can see the premiere in its entirety right here, sweet!
I am sure by know you are all well aware of the NBC sitcom The New Normal, starring the very talented Ellen Barkin. It has been making headlines the past couple of weeks ever since a Utah TV station declined to air the show because it features a gay couple trying to have a baby. The group One Million Moms also took aim at the show because of the illusion it gives as to what a normal family is today. Personally I think all the controversy is crap and the Utah station and the One Million Moms groups shuld shut up but that is a topic for another day.
In what I think is a great way to show viewers what the show is really about NBC has made it available early online. Now some of you may recall the peacock network actually aired the pilot during the Olympics. I for one don’t recall this because well I focused on the Olympics however I have watched it below, a couple of times actually. That being said I think The New Normal is fabulous and for those of you out there thinking it is a Modern Family rip off, trust me when I say it so is not. I am huge Modern Family fan and I loved this new show. I think that comedies like The New Normal are necessary today and not because of the content but because people need a good laugh. Seriously the entire controversy aside the show is freaking funny, so set your judgments aside and watch the entire premiere below. Then be sure to share with me your thoughts on the pilot episode.
