The New Normal (NBC)
The New Normal, a new comedy from Glee creator Ryan Murphy, attempts to paint a brand-new picture of the modern American family. Sure, we're introduced to an interesting cast of characters — including the main Oscar and Felix-esque gay couple, David (Justin Bartha) and Brian (Andrew Rannells) — but we fear that the clever and witty writing may get dwarfed by efforts to drive home the message that love is all you need to make a family. We get it, now let us enjoy the show!
The New Normal premieres Tuesday, September 11 at 9:30 ET/PT on NBC.
