CBS has pretty high expectations for its comedy series’ Nielsen ratings performance. Last year, they cancelled new three half-hour programs, without giving them a full season. Enter The Neighborhood TV show. Is it the kind of show that will make the audience roll out the welcome wagon? Will The Neighborhood be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CBS sitcom from creator Jim Reynolds, The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield, Sheaun McKinney, Marcel Spears, Hank Greenspan, Tichina Arnold, and Beth Behrs. The story centers on professional conflict negotiator Dave Johnson (Greenfield), who moves with his family to the Los Angeles area, after his wife, Gemma (Behrs), land a job as a school principal. The Johnsons’ new next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) is generally suspicious of outsiders and worries Dave will mess up the predominantly black community’s dynamics. Fortunately, Calvin’s wife, Tina (Arnold) is far more gracious. She and their sons do their best to make the new family feel at home.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
