Yes, more full-first-episode previews for your pre-fall season sampling enjoyment. NBC is offering up the pilot for its new sitcom “The New Normal,” the latest from “Glee” and “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy (working with Ali Adler).

The comedy stars Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha as a happy, successful Los Angeles couple who want to have a baby. They find a surrogate — a single mom and waitress played by Georgia King — and come to incorporate her, her daughter and her grandmother (Ellen Barkin) into their lives.
