Fall TV Tweak: New Normal Sneak Preview Has Grimm Consequences
NBC has slotted a sneak preview of The New Normal, its buzzy comedy cocreated by Glee‘s Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler, for this Monday, Sept. 10 at 10/9c, where it will enjoy a robust lead-in from the two-hour Season 3 premiere of The Voice. (Another rebroadcast of the Go On series premiere will round out the 10 o’clock hour.)
The New Normal will then christen its regular time slot, Tuesdays at 9:30, the following night, with a new episode.
As a result of this New development, the next new episode of Grimm Season 2, which was to fill the supernatural series’ fifth and final Monday window, instead will air Friday, Sept. 28 — representing Grimm‘s official relocation back to Friday with new episodes. (Originally, Grimm was to start unspooling new episodes on Fridays starting a week prior.)
The New Normal courted a smidgen of controversy last month when Salt Lake City’s KSL-TV announced its refusal to air the series about a same-sex couple and their surrogate. (The Ogden-based KUCW-TV has since picked up the new comedy and will air it Saturdays at 10/9c, ahead of Saturday Night Live.)
