the neighbors finale

The Neighbors started this season pretty well, but has been flagging recently, hitting a season low 1.4 adults 18-49 rating two weeks in a row. However, with a new The Middle original in front of it tonight (as well as guest roles for sci-fi favorites George Takei and Mark Hamill), do you think tonight's finale will finally see some growth? Make your predictions below and tell us why in the comments!

    Not sure it comes back next season unless ABC decides to dump it and Suburgatory on Fridays.

  • SarahL

    I love Neighbors so I hoping for 1.9 so it has a good chance of being renewed.

  • SJ

    1.7. Hopefully they cancel it…

  • Jude

    With 2 SCi-fi greats on tonight, it’s going to do great.

  • Jackson

    Saw on my guide that The Neighbors is pre-empted in South Florida for a Florida Derby horse racing special.

    1. 7

  • rob60990

    1.6, hopefully it’s cancelled or moved because all it’s been doing is bringing ABC down.

    The real question is, will Modern Family beat Idol tonight? I predict yes.

  • Cyrax86

    1.8, best freshman show of the season!

  • Jeff R.

    1.9 It gets funnier every week! Hoping ABC puts some PR into it over the summer and airs repeats after MF. I think it has potential to come back in the fall as a solid hit for them – a la The Middle. It’s a genuinely funny, sweet, well-acted family show.

    I love the show, but it’s doing worse than “Suburgatory” did in the same spot last season. LMS and MC turned up the heat last Friday, but overall the numbers seem to favor a second season of “The Neighbors.”

  • João Paulo

    One of my favorite comedies right now. I hope finish with 1.8 or 1.9

  • Bee

    prolly 1.7-1.9. and it’ll remain ABC’s worst mistake of the year where they insisted for some unknown reason to make this horrible-looking show happen, while moving suburgatory from its perfect spot and killing happy endings.

  • Bee

    and i just hope nashville doesn’t tank too bad. but the shows are returning from a month break and the last episode was a series low. so i wouldn’t be surprised with a 1.3-1.4. tho i’m hoping for some kind of miracle where it does oddly well with a 1.8 or something lol

  • Brett

    I honestly do not understand why there are so many haters of The Neighbors. I find it to be funny, sharply written, and thoroughly entertaining. It really has been getting better every week. Is this a situation where people are constantly ragging on it but haven’t actually seen an episode since the not-that-great pilot episode? I just don’t get it. It’s something that families can watch together, but it’s the humor is still edgy. The cast is excellent. What’s the problem?

  • Steve

    Wow, Mark Hamill looks pretty bad in that photo. Maybe it’s not a good idea to have him in the next “Star Wars” movie.

  • were123

    1.7, but it could beneffit a little bit more if The Middle comes back strong

  • PurpleDrazi

    THAT’S Mark Hamill? Luke, what happened to you?!?

    I think it will bounce back up now that it’s not surrounded by reruns. Not sure what the rating will be but hopefully enough to keep it off the bubble.

  • Clarke

    1.9-2.0. I really love this quirky show, it certainly doesn’t deserve all the hate it has gotten. I think it will be a good fit for Fridays next season.

  • Chris

    Well, considering ABC has been airing new episodes of the show in the middle of repeats of The Middle and Modern Family, I’d say it’s been doing okay, not great. It has improved in quality since the pilot. I think it’s a decent show, maybe give a 2nd season and move it. If it picks up it’s a winner, if the ratings falter…well there’s your answer.

  • Bruce

    Absolutely horrible show needs to be put out of its misery.

    If anybody saw those Friday comedy ratings last week well lets just say Neighbors won’t even touch that or smell that.

  • Nick

    The Middle: 2.3
    The Neighbors: 1.7
    Modern Family: 3.8
    Suburgatory: 2.3
    Nashville: 1.6

    Survivor: 2.5
    Criminal Minds (R): 1.6
    CSI (R): 1.5

    Arrow: 0.9
    Supernatural: 0.9

    American Idol: 3.7

    Whitney: 1.2
    Law & Order: SVU: 1.6
    Chicago Fire: 1.9

    The Neighbors should increase a little, but not more than a few tenths. In other news, Modern Family >>> Idol.
