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?

Jen December 9, 2012 at 2:07 pm

My daughter and I LOVE this show. I hope it stays on for a long, long time. There aren’t many shows we can both enjoy and watch together. This is one of our favorites. If they give it a real chance, I know it will do great! It’s just so very funny, and so very sweet! It’s an all around good time!

I Love this show the more I watch it. I say Give it a Chance !! [:-bd]

I already stopped watching anything on channel 10 NBC, if they cancel this show I’ll just stop watching abc too. Netflix rules anyway, only a couple of good shows on but they cancel them without giving them a chance

This show is my highlight for Wed. night! ABC has a strong lineup for family entertaining and this show does NOT disappoint! In subtle ways it shows how to accept ones differences, work with shortcomings and to break down barriers! I Love, LOVE this show and I will be SO PISSSSSED if it is taken out. We need more “clean” comedy like this on the TV. We “live” reality…we need to escape it every now and then!


Elise Brown November 27, 2012 at 11:16 pm

This show is the highlight of my TV viewing week! I hope that it gets renewed for a Season 2! Clever, well-written, hilarious!

Julia November 17, 2012 at 9:28 pm

My husband and I love this show! We watch it together every week and literally laugh out loud! The writing is witty and intelligent. Findlly something new to the tv mix, we are do sick of reality shows snd thirty something’s trying to make it in the world! And we ate thirty somethings! The Neighbors is a refreshing and hilarious change! Each week the plot gets better! I would be heart broken to see this show cancelled.

My family loves this show!


Brian G November 15, 2012 at 11:32 pm

The Neighbors is a clever funny show with a wacky premise and a bunch of whacky characters to go with it. Love the neighborhood aliens and the funny situations they get into. I love the human family and the Alien one. There is nothing like it on TV. Looking forward to the next episode.


Roger November 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm

The Neighbors is a fun 30 min getaway. A network show that the whole family can watch? Watch it, watch it, and laugh because it’s good!
