Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
Before its premiere, The New Normal
came under fire from certain conservative groups for its gay-friendly content, and the NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah, KSL, refused to air
the show (it was picked up to air on weekends by another Utah station, CW affiliate KUCW). The show debuted to mixed reviews and strong ratings, but started slipping in the ratings as the first season progressed.
