One Million Moms Goes After 'The New Normal' Again

One Million Moms is at again: They're still not done with "The New Normal" (Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC).

The NBC comedy poked fun at the anti-gay organization's boycott of the series in last week's episode when Ellen Barkin's homophobic character uttered the words, "I need the help of every one of you future One Million Moms."

OMM has released statement on their website claiming that "The New Normal" actually portrayed them in a positive light.

"Even though they attempted to poke fun, the show actually made One Million Moms look good," the statement reads. "The conservative grandmother chose three girls who are raised in traditional families who share the same beliefs she does to help her cancel her granddaughter’s fake wedding ... By the way, thanks for the free publicity!"

Barkin, who portrays the "conservative grandmother" mentioned above, is about as liberal as they come in reality.

"It's not just hate, it's fear of the other," Barkin said in a conference in call in which she was asked about protests against "The New Normal." "Hopefully we will learn that it's just not scary and there's nothing to be afraid of."

"The New Normal" airs on Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
