    Like Graddick mentioned, shows promoting this lifestyle have been popular for years, including some of my favorite series like Will and Grace and Modern Family! I was just looking through my DVR recently only to find bunches of these shows stockpiled. It’s just lucky that I have the Hopper DVR, with loads of recording space to house it all, since I love watching all the classic Will and Grace episodes. I think The New Normal has the potential to do as well as all these other shows too. I plan to do my best to support it by tuning in each week in hopes that their rating soar, so they can rub it in the faces of all their adversaries. I’m also going to spread the word about this to all my family members, friends and Dish coworkers so they can also watch and support the show. As this article points out, it is so hypocritical for KSL-TV to refuse to air a series about love and family, prominently seen in The New Normal.

    Why don't they just air it anyway and let audiences decide for themselves if they'd like to tune in? I don't understand such philosophies in this country, we are founded on the idea of having choices, and shouldn't stand for anything that tells us what is appropriate and what isn't.

    The mainstream, still doesn't accept the abnormal. Good for Utah. Maybe the gays & lesbians, should appreciate the freedom, the liberals have given them, and let people, or companies, i.e. Chick-Fil-a, express their views, without having pickets, trying to intimidate customers, and signing petitions, to put them out of business, on college campuses.

    you people who believe being gay is a "choice" need to have your heads examined. People are born heterosexual or gay. They don't "choose." On the other hand, you folks "choose" to be narrow-minded neanderthals who try to foist your fears on other people and call it right. I feel sorry for the gay people in your families, and believe me, they are there. Probably drinking too much, suicidal, or out of contact with you forever because they know the people they love will hate them because of the way they were born.

    The only thing it proves is that you have been mislead into thinking that mainstream America is going to be pushed into embracing the way of life.

    The comments on here prove that we are not evolving and are a sad statement on society. It's people like you that help things like Nazi Germany happen.

    Tolerance has its limits. Try it over in the middle east- MUSLUMS! You'll be on your knees in a soccer stadium.
