'NBC Cancels 'The New Normal'

NBC has cancelled the struggling comedy series, 'The New Normal' starring Justin Bartha and NeNe Leakes after one full 22 episode season.

The series premiered to almost seven million viewers but the rest of the season, like 'Go On' has dropped in viewership to just over two million. The final two episodes had the benefit of being aired after 'The Voice' which is a huge success for NBC. 

Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
18 - Para-New Normal Activity - March 5 - 2.44 million viewers
19 - Blood, Sweat and Fears - March 19 - 2.10 million viewers
20 - About a Boy Scout - March 26 - 3.32 million viewers
21 - Finding Name-O - April 2 - 4.46 million viewers
22 - The Big Day - April 2 - 3.39 million viewers

The now series finale was a fitting end for the series, it ended with the marriage and birth of the baby so it works well as a stand alone mini-series.
