It seems “The New Normal” … isn’t. NBC has cancelled  its gay agitprop sitcom after just one season.
“New Normal’s” plot revolved around a gay couple and the surrogate mother pregnant with their child. Ellen Barkin played the nasty, bigoted, conservative grandmother (a stretch for the nasty , bigoted  liberal Barkin) as the foil in the postmodern morality play.
Predictably, conservative Christians were a regular punching bag , and the show went to bat for Obama’s re-election . But it turns out propaganda-as-entertainment wasn’t popular with audiences, and “New Normal’s” ratings grew steadily worse.
