The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer in a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Dave Johnson is a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator. When his wife, Gemma, gets a job as a school principal in L.A., they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover, unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. Their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler, is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block.

People should stop rating like frustrated criticasters
People should really start rating like normal people. Giving this show a 1 or 2 out of 10 after one episode.. really? And furthermore, one person here is giving it a 1, but is still gonna watch follow up episodes? If I find a show or movie not worth more than 1, I stop watching all together,. 'cause it's just absolute garbage to me, no potential whatsoever.
To my opinion this show, after the pilot episode, deserves some more realistic ratings. It shouldn't be written off after just one episode.
I saw this show was coming out and had 'Schmidt' in its cast, I just had to check it out.
And it's a given, I don't see this show breaking any records or anything, but it deserves a bit more appreciation. I did have a fair amount of good laughs, it has potential to be a decent series, for a couple of seasons. I give it a 7 for now, we'll see where it leads to.
