That's because he has never been used as part of the main plot until the last episode. It was until the last episode that he had some sort relevance to the show.

^ Yes
But I think Brandon's acting is pretty wooden I think he is the least funny character out of the 4

Don't bother continuing with Partners. It will be cancelled any day and replaced with Rules of Engagement.

The New Normal is GOLDEN but is on NBC and is weakening with the ratings. I think NBC knows it is well written and will give it a Season 2 regardless of ratings - fingers crossed.

Re: "The New Normal" & "Partners"

I have such issues with Ellen Barkin's character here. She's not a fully fleshed out figure. She's a caricature of a bigot.

Re: "The New Normal" & "Partners"

I had to give up on TNN, which is sad because I like a lot of the actors. I just can't with anything Ryan Murphy is associated with. He is awful. I still remember him telling all the kids on The Glee Project "I don't know how to write for you." Seriously?

Re: "The New Normal" & "Partners"

What is that actress doing? He could have given her more than a bit part.

Re: "The New Normal" & "Partners"

How come there was no NANA at all at the latest episode of The New Normal?

Maybe NBC got the message that she is such an unrealistic stereotype.

They're all unrealistic stereotypes. In both shows (and even Modern Family), one of the gays has to be the shrill, emotional, femmy one and the other has to be the quiet, neurotic, straight acting one. NeNe's character is just kept around to say sassy black woman stuff periodically.

That redhead on Modern Family is hardly straight acting.
