The New Normal: Will You Join This Family?
NBC’s The New Normal officially debuted Monday night and instantly made its mission clear: to prove that something some might see as “abnormal” is actually — wait for it — “the new normal.” And now that you’ve had a chance to process the
surprise greatness of Real Housewife NeNe Leakes‘ comedic timing, we want to know if you’ll be adopting the series as your own this season.
A brief refresher: From Glee/American Horror Story mastermind Ryan Murphy and former Chuck EP Ali Adler, the Peacock Network’s latest comedy offering centers on Goldie (played by Georgia King), a young, single mom who hits the road in search of a new life with her wise-beyond-her-years daughter. Once partially settled in on the West Coast, the bubbly blonde agrees to become a surrogate mother for a same-sex couple (Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha) — though not without much objection from her bigot of a grandma (Ellen Barkin). (The series returns Tuesday night with another episode in its regular time slot at 9:30/8:30c.)
