The Laugh Button guide to new Fall 2012 television comedies
The Neighbors – ABC
Premieres Wednesday, September 26th at 9:30pm then moves to 8:30pm on October 3rd
What happens when a city man packs his family up and moves them to the suburbs? Nothing normally. But when those neighbors turn out to have weird behavior and are named after popular athletes… hijinks ensue. Oh! Yeah and they are aliens as well. But not really bad aliens, just the kind that want to live normal life.
Our Verdict: Of all the great sitcoms that ABC has developed over the last few years we’re not sure how this one sneaked by. We’re guessing the city to suburb success of last season’s Suburgatory might’ve helped this one. Thus, at least we still have that show, Modern Family and Happy Endings to help overlook this one.
