The New Normal Tanks

The New Normal, a show about two gay men having a family, was cancelled after just one season, along with a slew of new shows featuring gay characters, as HuffPo Gay Voices columnist Derek Harley notes.

Possibly the networks overestimated the appeal of gay themed shows (given that gays are not 25 percent of the population as most people think, but 2 around percent). Or possibly gays really are the new normal and so the frisson is lost.
