'The New Normal': Nicole Richie Goes Pumpkin Shopping With Ryan

After Hurricane Sandy, NBC pre-empted the Halloween installment of "The New Normal." Finally this past week, it came to air. And while it might seem strange to drop it in now in early March, it makes sense when you consider that Nicole Richie was one of the guest stars.

Richie's own show, "Fashion Star," returns to NBC this Friday at 8 p.m. EST for its second season. In this episode, though, it was revealed that she's one of Ryan's Hollywood friends. The two of them were seen shopping together for pumpkins and making fun of Courtney Love.

But Richie wasn't the only familiar face. George Takei dropped by to support Ryan's stance on Halloween finally being his chance to let his freak flag fly. Apparently that means controlling what everyone dresses up as every year.

But not this year. The family revolted, and wound up with a Frankenstein theme. Who cares that it's Halloween in March if it means viewers get to see NeNe Leakes as Matt Lauer. It made no sense -- and she ultimately changed to Serena Williams -- but it was just ridiculous enough to work.

Keep up with "The New Normal" every Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
