One Million Moms Vs New Normal
Thanks to almost universally scathing reviews and lackluster ratings, The New Normal is surely destined for an abbreviated run. But the One Million Moms are pressing on. Via press release:
Dear Joe, Keep up the great work! With one exception (V-8 owned by Campbell Soup Company), the majority of the sponsors we previously contacted did not appear on this past week's episode of "The New Normal." One Million Moms will continue to monitor and send out updates for the sponsors who have permanently removed themselves from sponsoring the show and if any reappear. Once again, we need to contact new sponsors of this irresponsible program that has no business being on television at all, especially on NBC. To sum it up, "The New Normal" is about a homosexual couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby. Through the character of the grandmother, the show mocks anyone who disagrees with their sinful lifestyle choice. The show refers to those who oppose their decision as intolerant and a bigot. The third episode was mostly a political debate largely pro-Obama and anti-Romney. Planned Parenthood, women's right (it never came out and said pro-abortion but it was obvious what the program was referring to), same-sex marriage, and healthcare for all were the controversial topics discussed during the 30 minute episode. The show was a platform for the liberal agenda. The program was also extremely racist and made anyone who has traditional values appear to be racist. This is a false representation. The twist at the end was when an African-American man revealed he was a Republican. The show is demeaning to conservatives and degrading to the black community.As you probably know, networks tend to fill the advertising slots on failing shows with spots purchased in bulk buys that are not directed to be placed on any specific program. Therefore the One Million Moms will always claim victory when one of their targeted companies are not again chosen by the networks' advertising roulette.
