The Neighborhood is here to stay. CBS just announced they’ve renewed the TV show for a second season.
The sitcom centers on professional conflict negotiator Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield), who moves with his family to the Los Angeles area, after his wife, Gemma (Beth 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.
A Look at the Ratings:
So far, season one is averaging a 1.12 rating in the 18-49 demo and 6.43 million viewers, making it CBS’ top-rated new comedy for the 2018-19 season and one of their top comedies overall.
CBS also renewed two other freshman shows – FBI and Magnum PI — for the 2019-20 season. “Each of these distinctive shows has made their mark in a variety of ways,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “Our goals this season were to introduce new series that audiences are passionate about, add more strength to a winning schedule and create more inclusive programming.” Thom Sherman, Senior Executive Vice President of Programming added, “We’re thrilled by the creative direction and performance of these three shows as they continue to grow in popularity and resonate with the Network’s viewers.”
The network has not renewed Sunday’s God Friended Me for a second season yet but a renewal is expected. Renewals of Happy Together and Murphy Brown are seen as more of a longshot.
