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?

Please, bring this show back for another season. Don’t take it off. It got low ratings cause you aired it on the wrong time and day. Put it on when there is not a popular show on. Put it on Thursday or Friday when there is noting on those nights but garbage. Love this show please bring it back. By putting this show on at the wrong time slot and day YOU NEVER GAVE IT A CHANCE TO GET TOP RATINGS That is not fair. Bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is clean and very funny Don’t take it off.

My Family loves this show….I’m puzzled by the negative comments… I think it is very cleverly written, a witty humor, plus it has heart some very touching moments about family. The problem with TV today is everything has to be done in such a cookie cutter manor.
When a show comes along and tries something people don’t like it. Remember when The Middle debuted critics did not like it and look today it is still here and an awesome show.

Bring The Neighbors back. TV needs this fresh and quirky show!!!!!

At first I thought the show would be stupid and boring.. but Oh Was I WRONG!! Jamie Gertz and the whole cast of Neighbors is refreshing and funny!! I know if they stay on that it will begin to gather a new following.. Think Big Bang Theory!! Firefly

Sometimes it takes a bit for us to filter through the mess on TV to find a bright shiney coin but this one has so much fan potential… Keep it running and they will come!!!!! Don’t count out this crazy show yet… mark my words.. this is going to be big!!!

When I found this show, I felt so lucky. It should definitely be renewed. With more marketing and advertisements, it should do well next season if it gets renewed.
