Trivia: The New Normal
  • Actor Allusion: Bryan refers to Romney as "the Mormon". Andrew Rannells played a Mormon in the Book of Mormon Musical before.
  • Banned in China: Believe it or not, the show has been banned by the NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah (which is indirectly owned by the Mormon Church). The CW affiliate there airs it on Saturdays.
  • Fake American: Goldie is played by the British Georgia King.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Riley Poole is gay? Looks like the dreams of National Treasure slashers have halfway come true.
  • Screwed by the Network: Unfortunately, the show was canceled after only one season. At least it had a Grand Finale.
  • What Could Have Been: Monty, Matt Bomer's character, was originally named Drew and broke up with Bryan after he cheated on him with a girl.
  • Write Who You Know: The characters of Bryan and David are based on Ryan Murphy and his boyfriend, David.
