More about The New Normal: ratings

NBC TV series The New Normal

The New Normal

This sitcom revolves around the idea that families come in all shapes and sizes these days -- married couples, single dads, double moms, blended families, adoptions, sperm and egg donors, one-night-stand donors, and on and on. Different is the new normal and things often aren't as simple as Ozzie and Harriet or Leave It to Beaver. Bryan Collins (Andrew Rannells) and David Murray (Justin Bartha) are a gay Los Angeles couple and have had a committed and loving partnership for years. They have it all -- almost. With successful careers and a committed, loving partnership, there's just one thing that they're missing -- a baby.
