Watch the Hysterical Pilot for NBC’s “The New Normal” Now!

I just got lucky… No, not like that silly. I mean that I just got lucky because the new show I have been looking forward to most of the fall season, NBC’s The New Normal is now available online. NBC and Hulu are both streaming the pilot for this hysterical show which follows a loving and successful gay couple David (The Hangover’s Justin Bartha) and Bryan (the Tony nominated star of The Book of Mormon Andrew Rannells) as they attempt to have a baby with a charming surrogate Goldie (the very appealing Georgia King) who already has her own smarter-than-all-the-adults tween Shania (Bebe Wood) and a meddlesome and racist/homophobic/all-around offensively hilarious grandmother Nana (Tony award winner for The Normal Heart and current Modern Family Emmy nominee Ellen Barkin). Glee and The Real Housewives‘ NeNe Leakes costars as Brian’s sassy assistant in this sitcom from the man who created Glee himself Ryan Murphy. It has that show’s signature biting humor and heart and the ensemble is fantastic. The show fires on all cylinders and I think Rannells is going to break out big. Also, watch for Barkin to become an awards magnet for this role that should be utterly atrocious but in her incredibly skilled hands becomes somehow likable despite the funny and foul things flying out of her mouth. The show will be paired with Matthew Perry’s amiable new comedy Go On on Tuesday nights on NBC starting September 11th. I can’t recommend it anymore… In fact, Tuesday night is gonna be a hot bed of hilarious comedy with New Girl, The Mindy Project, Happy Endings, Go On, Raising Hope, Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 and The New Normal. My dvr will be in overdrive, but I’m pushing The New Normal to the front of the pack and declaring it the fall’s best new sitcom…. And now you can check it out below or on NBC.com and hulu. Take a look, laugh your tushy off and enjoy The New Normal.
