Compared to last season’s premiere of Happy Endings in the same timeslot, the network was up by 6% in the demo (vs a 3.1 rating) and up by 27% in viewership (vs 7.25 million).

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?

Clever concept. The cast is getting better as a group every week ABC
should give it a second season to allow it to jell.


Kathy March 7, 2013 at 8:19 pm

Every episode is better than the last! The casting is perfect! Excellent writing!


Jim March 6, 2013 at 8:58 pm

I love the Neighbors. I think its very cleverly done and at times tugs at your heartstrings. The cast is perfect and they teach you important family values each week. I really want to see it get a second season its great !!!


rita February 27, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Really surprised that so many posters feel that the writing for this show is “clever.” It is one of the dumbest and most boring shows on TV. Such a sad commentary … on the current quality standards ….Just cannot believe how some shows get cancelled, but this trash is still on (and may quite possibly be renewed).


rita March 19, 2013 at 10:09 pm

In correction to my last comment, i was wrong as I do not know what I was saying. This show is clever, I am just to shallow to understand that.


Clev McCleverson March 22, 2013 at 7:57 am

Well, at least we agree on SOMEthing!

The Neighbors rocks!!


Gracie February 21, 2013 at 7:38 pm

We love this show..laugh our heads off….it is so much more clever than the first couple of episodes would have led you to believe….please keep it around…


AnnaFitz February 27, 2013 at 6:51 pm

Oh My God – us too! The show makes my family laugh out loud constantly. Larry Bird just walks into view and my son is already cracking up. I love simple comedy and who does not need to laugh out loud. Thank God ABC has this show – I hope it goes on for many more years.


primetime blabber February 14, 2013 at 5:30 pm

why is this show still on? I know…because ABC likes stupid shows


Jen February 13, 2013 at 10:22 pm

Seriously this show is so funny! The casting is great! I hope it gets to stick around a while.


Denny February 7, 2013 at 11:02 pm

A fresh new idea for a sitcom thats just lite and fun,keep it on


Mandy February 7, 2013 at 7:58 pm

This show is seriously one of the funniest, most original shows to come to TV in a long time. I could see this show staying for a while!!! It is very creative and I can’t wait to see what else happens this season!


Anonymous February 1, 2013 at 2:56 pm

It’s great show. Hope it does not get cancelled


Eve January 3, 2013 at 9:52 am

I love the Neighbors. It is one of the funniest shows on TV. It makes fun out of ordinary stuff and in these economic times we need stuff to be funny. I really hope they don’t cancel it. It is very well written and the actors are really good.
