The New Abysmal

The New Normal is a series about a gay couple having a baby. One character is an officially announced bigot; everyone else seems worth being bigoted against. The basic problem with this sitcom is not the situation… it’s that its not funny, not for a moment. And it’s not even the sort of not-funny that seems to grab an audience at times. This spares me from having to write a longer review that justifies my distaste; I’m confident that this one will soon be gone.

I’m so glad that we have good, successful shows with gay characters on now, so that we can afford to let the crap die without people saying “look, no one will watch homosexuals on network.”
