Olympics Viewers to Get Taste of ‘New Normal’


Ryan Murphy’s foray onto NBC will begin earlier than “The New Normal’s” offish premiere date as the b’cast net will air a two-minute sneak peek of the laffer tonight during Olympics coverage.

“New Normal” has already lit up controversy for its storyline about a gay couple seeking to have a child. One Million Moms, an org created by the American Family Association, has encouraged viewers to boycott the skein, dubbing it “harmful to society.” During the TCA sesh for “New Normal,” Murphy and the show’s cast laughed off the criticism, with Murphy stating, “I find it to be interesting that they would take a position before they’ve seen it.”

Sneak peek will air around 11:17pm tonight after the Olympics Women’s BMX Finals. Above is NBC’s original preview for “The New Normal,” which bows on NBC on Tuesday, September 11 at 9:30pm.
