Overall, The Neighbors did well for ABC but, based on the negative reviews and comments, one has to think that there’s a very good chance the numbers will take a serious nosedive in week two. We shall see.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I love this show–everyone loves eachother, they all support one another-no violence-no bullying of the audience–lovely plots that make one feel good when the show is on- and missing the characters when the episode is over.my grandson won’t watch tv anymore after the red wedding of game of thrones and he is 23 years old.

  2. Ron Gallant says

    THE NEIGHBORS: Quirky, funny, and entertaining. Great characters & premise. Excellent actors. Please focus more on the alien aspects, especially their specifics like changeability & original form? Worthy of being renewed for another season. Maybe you need a companion alien show with different competing/rival races. One more thing, I love cross-overs. How about developing some special effects with that–something mind-blowing. LOVE LOVE LOVE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING ON THE ABC!!!…Thanks, Disney.

    We loved this show!!!!! I will be so sad if it is not renewed! It is the one show each week we could count on for fun!

  6. Mike Cosgrove says

    I didn’t think this show had a chance at first. However, it really grew on me to the point it was a must see every week. Please give this one a second season.

  7. tamaita says

    This show quickly became one of our ALL TIME favorite sitcoms! Not an exaggeration! Please pass on to ABC that there are MANY people who LOVE this show. It would be such a shame to see it go! The cast/producers, etc. did an especially good job in the season finale convincing the network that it should be renewed :)

  8. Collette Jimenez says

  9. Tracey Cuthbertson says

    I love this show and hope it has atleast another season. It actually reminds me of the old show Green Acres since it is complete nonsense and that to me is a good thing. I love the characters and I don’t remember what the name of my favorite episode was if it had one but it was the one where they made a musical. That was one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. They really go out on a limb to think ups strange things for the show. If anyone that is involved in deciding whether to keep the show or cancel it is reading this Please Keep It Alive!!!
