TV The New Normal

Watch Megan Hilty, Andrew Rannells And Laura Benanti Sing About Their TV Attempts At The Tonys
Success on the Broadway stage doesn't automatically mean success on the small screen, as a number actors can attest. In fact, those actors took the stage with Neil Patrick Harris at last night's 67th Annual Tony Awards to lament their failed series. Of course, that meant singing alongside Neil Patrick Harris, which may have been a bit of musically charged lemon in some fresh wounds.

Happy Endings, Vegas, CSI: NY, Golden Boy And The New Normal And Others Cancelled
Amidst a flurry of series orders and renewals, we're also hearing bad news for some series. For CBS, the ax has fallen on CSI: NY, Golden Boy and Vegas. For NBC, The New Normal joins Go On among the freshman comedies cancelled. And for ABC, Happy Endings has been axed, though there may be some hope for that one as there's talk of USA possibly rescuing the friends-centered comedy.

The Voice Helps Go On And The New Normal's Ratings
Most people guessed The Voice would spell a real ratings bringer for some of NBC’s other programming when it returned to the schedule. True to form, last night’s episode o NBC's hit singing competition, managed to push NBC’s sitcoms, Go On and The New Normal, into some legitimately decent ratings

Smash Is Moving To Saturdays, NBC Makes Other Schedule Changes
Since its return for the start of its second season, Smash has been struggling in the ratings. The return of The Voice might have helped it there, but it looks like NBC has opted to move the Broadway focused drama away from Tuesday nights, placing their new dating reality show Ready For Love in the post-Voice spot. That's good news for Ready For Love, but most certainly bad news for Smash, which is being moved to Saturdays, starting next month.

From Moms To Militia: 5 New TV Characters That Just Don't Work
At TV Blend, we know it’s not all black and white. Sometimes a great show can feature an unconvincing character, sometimes a bland show’s scales can be tipped toward terrible by a poorly written man or woman (or alien), and sometimes even the worst shows can have a stand-out low point. This year, instead of celebrating the worst of the worst new programs on TV, we’d like to get out our shiny microscope and dig in a little deeper, taking a look at the brand new characters that just don’t work.

White Collar's Matt Bomer To Guest Star In The New Normal
White Collar’s Matt Bomer has been known to take a guest stint or two in the past. Soon, the snarky actor will be headed to NBC’s freshman comedy The New Normal to play a potentially trouble-causing role.

The New Normal Backlash: Will It Help Or Hurt The NBC Comedy?
It hasn’t hit the air yet, but The New Normal is already the most controversial new show of the 2012-2013 season. With watchdog groups blasting it and a station in Utah refusing to carry it, the comedy about a gay couple who use a surrogate to have a baby has already had to defend itself repeatedly. Other shows that have seen the same sort of criticism have failed in their first season - last season’s The Playboy Club for one. Do protestors waving the family values flag really have an impact on how a new series will be received?

Utah Station Bans NBC's The New Normal
The very title of the upcoming NBC show The New Normal says it all. Yes, this is a show about two men (played by Andrew Rannels and Justin Bartha) who are raising a baby together, but in this day and age, that's not anything to get worked up about. Well, unless you're Salt Lake City-based NBC affiliate KSL
