Anyone here planning on watching "The New Normal"? It's the new NBC show that portrays a gay couple wanting to have a child, and will premiere Tuesady. Already one affiliate station is refusing to air the series, claiming the language and stereotypes are offensive.

Given that the show's creator is Ryan Murphy (Glee), I'm pretty sure that it's going to be amazing. Love this Ellen Barkin interview about the show with Matt Lauer! http://theclicker.today.com/_news/2012/09/07/13726469-ellen-barkin-says-gay-storyline-is-why-new-show-is-facing-censorship?lite

I missed the pilot show the other night, but I just caught it online. I love it... Go, Ryan Murphy!
