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 it is super funny, it even has a little drama in it. ABC better keep it or I will be very angry and devastated.

  2. Jan Wiseman says

    This was one of THE FUNNIEST shows that has been on the television in a very long time. I loved that each alien was named after a famous sports personality, and all different ethnicities. I thought the writers did a GREAT job. The jokes were hilarious and the casting was spot on. ABC should definitely give this show one more season. I truly believe the ratings will increase and it will end up being another hit for them!!

  3. howard says

  5. Lauren says

    Please PLEASE renew this series! It is smart and witty and fun. I am so tired of having such well written and thoughtful shows taken off the air to only be replaced by another crime drama…we get it. Crime. Bring me aliens!

  6. Debbie says

    I like the neighbors. It is clever and wholesome. I also like it better than Modern Family. I hope it is renewed.

  7. Angela says
