Tonight, the second season of ABC comedy The Neighbors premieres in a new Friday night timeslot. Last year, the veryu first episode of the series, which aired in the cushy post-Modern Family timeslot, earned a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating. The next week, when it moved to Wednesday at 8:30PM, it fell to a 2.0. Its season finale on March 27 garnered a 1.5. Will pairing it with Last Man Standing, which also returns tonight, bode well for its continued survival?  The thresholds for success on Friday are lower than Wednesday.  Tonight,The Neighbors faces no original broadcast competition.  So how do you think it will do? Make your predictions!

    I love this show but I’m guessing 1.4. Looking forward to its return along with LMS.

  • snoot

    1.7-1.9. It’s a great show I hope it does well

  • BigBrotherFan

    Back to school and it’s a pretty juvenile show so I’m going lower


  • Bitter Go On Fan (Former Bitter Ringer Fan)

    This show is so much fun to watch!! I hope it won’t have a slow death on fridays :( i’m being slightly optimistic and going for a 1.5-1.6.

  • tv_viewer

    Last Man Standing 1.9
    The Neighbors 1.6

    People seem to have a lack of faith. There is no original competition among the big 4 broadcast networks. One show (Betty White) is cancelled and the other two shows are repeats (Undercover Boss and Bones).

    It was getting mid to high 1’s on Wednesday nights. I see no reason it can’t replicate that on Friday with much less competition.

  • HV

    The premieres tonight:
    Last Man Standing 2.0
    The Neighbors 1.2
    Shark Tank 1.8

  • Ann

    I’ll say 1.8 for the premiere and then it’ll drop off to 1.4 to 1.5 once the other shows start airing new episodes.

  • Matt

    LMS: 7.8 million / 1.9
    The Neighbors: 5.9 million / 1.6
    Shark tank: 8.0 million / 2.5

  • NBC Fan

    Last Man Standing-2.1
    The Neighbors-1.7
    Shark Tank-2.3

  • Networkman

    I feel The Neighbors is a great family show. And we need shows that one can watch with their children. Because of the characters, the show is given more privilege to be quirky or wacky. I’m hoping that it garners higher demo than its season finale. So, I’m going with 1.7 which is really acceptable. If it can maintain 1.4-1.7 all season, ABC should be really happy with that.

    I’m hoping Last Man Standing really surprises and outperforms garnering a 2.0

    Last Man Standing demo 2.0, viewers 8.50
    The Neighbors demo 1.7, viewers 6.80

  • Tony JJ

    I’m going optimistic on these predictions:

    Last Man Standing 2.1
    The Neighbors 1.9
    Shark Tank 2.4
    20/20 1.7

  • CBSviewer


    Last Man Standing: 1.8
    The Neighbors: 1.5
    Skark Tank: 2.0
    20/20: 1.7

  • John A

    It bombed it got a 1.2.

  • MJ

    Hope it FAILS!!!!! Malibu Country should have never been canceled!!! What was ABC thinking????
