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.

What do you think? Do you like The Neighbors TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I love the humor and the campiness well done ABC ….

Either the people who are giving this insipid one-joke show great reviews are hapless production assistants with loaded guns at their temples, or they belong to the same clueless class of Americans known as “undecided voters.”
This show is beyond bad. It is painful to watch, as stale and bland as month-old Wonder Bread, and a criminal waste of a good time slot. And I just read that ABC ordered three more scripts? Clearly they are unfamiliar with the old maxim: “You can’t polish a turd.”
But good luck trying.

My daughter really enjoys it and she looks forward to every week to watch the neighbors. The show is good for the kids and the family to watch and I think ABC should keep it going

The Neighbors is surprisingly amazing. I’ve laughed so hard during these three episodes. I think ABC took a massive gamble on the plot, and it’s payed off. Can’t wait for next week!

Toks Olagundoye is so beautiful its worth watching regardless of the story line.

As long as the humor keeps up, I’ll watch. Married with Children is raunchy and disguting, with no where near the laughs.

I’m not ashamed to say that the show actually cracked me up. Of course it’s completely ridiculous, like ALF or 3rd Rock from the Sun, but what’s the harm of stupid humor? I’ll understand if it tanks; I’ll understand if it’s a hit. Either way, while it’s here, it makes me giggle.

This show was added to the very short list of shows I only watched once and decided to never ever watch again. The big bang theory and anmerican horror story is joined by this horrible show.

They should air it Tommy Wiseau work. The Neighbors by Tommy Wiseau. What about that? At least he has original material.

Reply

Drew September 30, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Well, The Neighbors is not original material and it was stolen from The Neighbors by Tommy Wiseau; creator of “The Room.” You can check the web about it; He released it in 2007 and Cotton Network should air it but they didn’t. You can check on “The Room” website they have a trailer and they may air it in December 2012.

I thought Guys With Kids was awful (and it is). Incredibly, this show is far far worse. A one-joke skit, as a reviewer said, is fine for an SNL sketch. But for a 22 minute show? I will not be watching it again, nor will intelligent Americans. (Canadian rating s mean NOTHING to the networks so we might as well not exist. Ignore 30 million viewers. Nice.)

I thought Partners was bad, and then I watched this. Horrible. Just horrible. When it moves to after The Middle it’s gonna tank.

One of the good new comedies of the season. Watch out FOX, yours suck.

My 9-year-old and I just watched the premier on Hulu and laughed throughout the episode and really enjoyed it. Hopefully, they can find ways to keep the ideas fresh and keep us laughing. She was excited to watch the next episode when the first one ended.
