Storyline

In this clone of "The Newlywed Game," five women, all said to be real-life neighbors, appeared as contestants. The game was played in two parts: Part one had host Philbin reading a piece of information, and it was up to one of the contestants to decide if it was about her or one of the neighbors. In part two, two of the contestants got to listen to gossip about her and had to decide which neighbor said it. Cash prizes were awarded for correct answers. The contestant with the most money at the end of the show won a bonus prize. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

One of the Worst Game Shows
18 January 2007 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

In 1975, there were 25 game shows that aired on the networks. One show I remember turned to be one of the worst game shows of the bunch, The Neighbors. I though the premise was horrible, five women who are real-life neighbors appear on the show to find out how well they know each other. Who cares what Neighbor X said about Neighbor Y or Neighbor Z? That's the type of material for talk shows, not game shows. The home viewer was more of a spectator instead of a participant. It just wasn't interesting.

The only good thing about this show was that the host, Regis Philbin redeemed himself from this debacle and later went on to host a successful morning show with Kathie Lee Gifford and later Kelly Ripa as well as a game show that revived the prime time game show genre Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. As for my final answer on The Neighbors, it was one of the worst game shows ever made.
