NBC has begun airing their new show "The New Normal" with the subtitles "A post-modern family" and "She's Having Their Baby." NBC's website describes the program as: "These days, families come in all forms - single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors... It's 2012 and anything goes. Bryan and David are a Los Angeles couple and they have it all. Well, almost. With successful careers and a committed and loving partnership, the one thing missing is a baby."

To sum it up, this show is about a homosexual couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby. The first episode mocks anyone who disagrees with their sinful lifestyle choice through the character of the grandmother. The script refers to those who oppose their decision as intolerant and a bigot during the show. There is also a graphic bedroom scene where the surrogate walks in on her now soon to be ex-husband who is completely nude and in the act with another woman. The most saddening is the child who plays the part of the surrogate's eight-year-old daughter who is cast in a program that is inappropriate for anyone, but especially for someone her age that is being exposed to information she is too young to understand.

This unsuitable program airs before 10:00 p.m. which is primetime and when children are likely awake especially in the Central Time Zone. The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 9:30/8:30 p.m. Central. It is no surprise that openly gay Ryan Murphy is one of the executive producers and director. Murphy also brought us "American Horror Story," "GLEE," and "Nip/Tuck."

NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and to belittle the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage. These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture.

Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. NBC's "The New Normal" is attempting to desensitize America and our children. This storyline is the opposite of how families are designed and created.

One Million Moms warned NBC we would contact any and all sponsors of this program if they continue to broadcast it.


Please email the sponsors of NBC's "The New Normal" and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support this program. Sponsors include: Olive Garden, Macy's, Arby's, and Walgreens.

Help us urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the NBC network in protest.
