American Idol Finalist James Durbin is making an appearance in a new TS documentary aptly entitled Different Is the New Normal.

It's airing Sept. 15 in New York only on WNET.

Click the link above for more info. A short snippet taken from the TSA website is as follows:

Ariel Small grew up in suburban Chicago with four siblings and loving parents. However, as Ariel grew older his parents noticed something different. His behavior became more and more alarming. Premiering on Thursday, September 15 at 8 p.m. (ET) on THIRTEEN and Tuesday, September 27 at 10:30 p.m. (ET) on WLIW21, Different Is the New Normal tracks trials and triumphs of Ariel Small, a 17-year-old who has struggled with uncontrollable tics caused by Tourette Syndrome - and others' intolerance and misperceptions about it - throughout his life. Edie Magnus narrates. After broadcast, the one-hour documentary will be available for national audience for a limited time at watch.thirteen.org. The film is a presentation of Creative News Group in association with WNET New York Public Media, the parent company of THIRTEEN and WLIW21, New York's public television stations and operator of NJTV. For nearly 50 years, WNET has been producing and broadcasting national and local documentaries and other programs for the New York community.

I will find out more about how you can bug your local station to air this show and get back to you all soon.

Meanwhile, would love to hear how you all took care of yourselves this weekend. How are you? How are the kids? As for me, I've been pretty peaceful. Stink's tics were a bit high tonight, but evenings are always the worst. I look forward to visit with his naturopath in a few weeks. Until then, I'm going to focus on a good bedtime routine and diet for him AND for me. On that night, good night!

Thanks for posting this, I actually get NJTV so I have my DVR all ready to go for Tuesday night! I don't usually watch the TS programs, but I love James Durbin & this one looks inspirational.
