    Please, bring back this Funny show. The Neighbors is so so hilarious it is like a breath of fresh air. The Actors are paired perfectly for their characters. You got low ratings because of the day and time slot. Put it on another day and time and you will get better ratings. You never gave it a chance. It is a clean show that a family can watch together and laugh. Just try putting it on when there is no popular TV show on and see if the rating are higher. If it fails to get the ratings then take it off. At least do this for the people that loved it. Don’t give up on this show WE LOVE IT. BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
