New Normal

Why should Matthew Perry have all the fun?

NBC is going to show an extended preview of Ryan Murphy’s upcoming comedy series The New Normal during the Olympics tonight. The network will air more than two minutes from the series after the Women’s BMX Finals on Friday evening. The preview is expected to hit the air around 11:17 p.m.

The New Normal is the Glee co-creator’s new comedy about a Los Angeles gay couple (Andrew Rannells) and (Justin Bartha) who have their first child with the help of a surrogate (Georgia King) who has a rather narrow-minded grandmother (Ellen Barkin).

NBC had considerable success previewing Perry’s new comedy Go On after the Olympics on Wednesday night, with the episode getting sampled by 16.1 million viewers. The network also showed an extended trailer for Revolution on Tuesday. On Sunday after the Closing Ceremony, NBC will air the full pilot for new comedy Animal Practice (exclusive clip here). New Normal premieres Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 9:30 p.m.

Here’s the preview:
