I watched the pilot online and liked it. Ellen Barkin steals the show though.

And since comparisons will be inevitable, I think quality-wise this will kick 'Partners', but as Partners airs on CBS and New Normal is on NBC, Partners will win the ratings war.

Okay, so I watched the pilot and enjoyed it. I definitely agree that Barkin steals the show.

NBC’s "The New Normal" won’t air on KSL this fall. The prospect of two gay men having a baby proved too much for the LDS Church-owned station.
RIDICULOUS.

I thought it was absolutely hilarious. I felt connected to the characters. I love it. I just worry because it's Ryan Murphy .... can it sustain several seasons?

Ellen Barkin stole the show but it's a mad talented cast.

Loved the show! Ellen Barkin was def the MVP of the episode.

I have faith that Ali Adler (Chuck) will be able to keep the show fresh when Murphy burns out in the second season.

I watched and putting it on DVR.. I thought it was hilarious! Its basically a modern day All in the Family.... It uses humor to expose bigotry and intolerance.. i hope it does well..

The NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City is partly owned by the Mormon Church. They also refused to air The Playboy Club last year.

Second episode ratings are exactly the same as the premiere. 100% retention!
