Broadcast TV is being invaded tonight...and yes there are little green men. The Neighbors has received some negative buzz on the critic circuit despite being compared to 90s cult hit (and similarly-themed) 3rd Rock From the Sun, but its Modern Family lead-in may still give the premiere the eyeballs it needs tonight. What do you think? Will you be watching?

    I guessed 2.1-2.6, I imagine many will tune out halfway through. It looked good until they showed the aliens, which just looked so stupid.

  • Nick

    The Middle: 3.1
    Modern Family: 6.4
    The Neighbors: 2.8
    Revenge Recap: 1.6

    Survivor: 2.5
    Criminal Minds: 3.8
    CSI: 3.3

    Oh Sit!: 0.3

    The X Factor: 2.9

    Animal Practice: 2.1
    Guys With Kids: 1.5
    Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: 1.8

    Networks:
    1. CBS: 3.2
    2. ABC: 3.1
    3. Fox: 2.9
    4. NBC: 1.8
    5. the CW: 0.3

    Despite the Neighbors failing, ABC will come a close second to CBS. AP, GWK, Survivor, TXF, and Oh Sit! will be down due to increased competition. MF will be up due to the Emmys being recently and on ABC.

    on meta critic it received a score of 43 out of 100 which is higher than
    whitney and LMS from last season. 4 critics even gave the show at least a 70.

    I’ve never seen a show on ABC receive such negative responses from people such as this.

    How quickly people forget. The ABC sitcom Work It from last season is a contender for the worst sitcom to have ever been broadcast. It got 19 on Metacritic with not a single TV critic being willing to defend it.

    Neighbors…2.3, MF 4.5, Middle 2.9, CM 3.3, SVU 2.4 and 2.6, CSI 2.7

    whitney had a 49 out of 100, sorry I thought it was lower.

  • NCJeff

    It’ll do better than it deserves with the Modern Family lead in. I’d have it in the low twos if it wasn’t for MF.

  • hammard

    Suburgatory premiered with the Middle as a lead-in at 3.3. I think this will hit a similar number, then drop like a stone!

  • TVMAN

    Someone at ABC should get fired for putting this show on the air. ABC schedule isn’t looking good this year

  • Ram510

    Last year Moden Family got a 6.2 for its hour long premier. With everything being down so far this week I think Modern Family will be down a little bit somewhere around a 5.6-5.8.

    With that said I expect Neighbors to retain less than half it’s lead in, soninfully expect it to premiere under a 3.0, probably a 2.5 give or take

  • THE OLD MAN

    Probably being too bullish w/ 3.0, but the MF lead-in made me do it

    Plan on watching it just to say I saw at least one ep

    Can’t wait for the Middle, need my Axl fix

  • Dillan

    I think 2.1. The show looks awful, IMO.

    Elsewhere, I think X Factor will dip to a 3.4.

  • KJ Styles

    I’ll go 2.8 for the Neighbors out of a 5.0 for Modern Family.

    Last year Moden Family got a 6.2 for its hour long premier. With everything being down so far this week I think Modern Family will be down a little bit somewhere around a 5.6-5.8.

    That would be countered by the fact that ABC promoted the heck out of it during the Emmys – where it won Outstanding Comedy. That should raise it about a half a point. (Fox had the Emmys last year)

  • Mary

    I think it will tank. I’d say low 2′s to start with and progressively worse when they move it to its new time next week.

  • Alex

    Honestly The Neighbors isn’t as bad as the previews and critics have suggested. The primary problem with the show is that it isn’t really a prime time broadcast sitcom. It feels a lot like ABC have just taken a sitcom that was being developed for the Disney Channel and inexplicably put it on after Modern Family.

    Personally I think it’ll probably do OK out of Modern Family tonight – high 2/low 3 – but whether it can maintain anything close to OK at 8:30 is another question entirely.

  • Carm

    It will be a Flop!
    Too many good shoes.
    Criminal Minds
    Law and Order SVU
    X FACTOR

    Sorry will be missing Modern Family this year, will get it on reruns.

  • Leondre

    I’ve noticed that every season premiere for The Middle and Modern Family is bigger than the last.

  • Leondre

    I’ve noticed that every season premiere for The Middle and Modern Family is bigger than the last. I say a 3.0 for TM and a 6.4 for MF

  • Leondre

    3.6 for The Neighbors
