The Neighbors: ABC Orders More Episodes

Though many pegged The Neighbors as the first show of the season to be cancelled, the sitcom has been performing better than other ABC shows like 666 Park Avenue, Last Resort, Happy Endings, and Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23.

The network has now reportedly ordered nine additional episodes of The Neighbors, bringing the first season total to 22 installments. The network previously commissioned three more scripts.

Wednesday’s episode, which aired sandwiched between other Halloween-themed sitcoms, drew a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with nearly seven million total viewers.

Unless The Neighbors’ ratings improve, it seems unlikely that ABC will renew it for a second season in May but you never know. In light of the disappointing returns of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, The Neighbors may have a better-than-expected chance.

What do you think? Have you been watching The Neighbors on ABC? Do you think it should be renewed for a second season or cancelled?

    Though this is not cerebral show, it’s just fun. With a bad economy, high unemployment, gas at $4 a gallon, its nice to have a funny silly show to watch. I like the characters, the stories and the silliness. It’s a relief, especially after the election results, to have something to laugh at!

    I’m happy to see The Neighbors secure a full season; it’s a great show to wind down to. A few friends that work with me think that the pro-athlete-named characters make for most of the laughs. The Reggie Jackson introduction was amazing, by the way. Cheers to an underdog becoming a great.

    The Neighbors is hilarious and bright star among dull sitcoms. Keep this one going as long as you can, please.

    also, perfect casting and writing.
