Inside Move: Goodman show gets ‘Normal’

Gay-dad laffer finally gets name

Fox’s upcoming John Goodman laffer finally has a name.

The Carsey-Werner produced show — which has been known alternately as “Don’t Ask,” “The John Goodman Project” and (at least in some circles) “Butch” — has now been titled “Normal, Ohio.” Goodman will still play Butch, a gay dad who returns home to live with his sister and her kids.

Goodman’s series is not the only new fall comedy to get “Normal”-ized. ABC has a Jon Cryer laffer called “The Trouble With Normal” that was originally titled “People Who Fear People.”
