The Neighborhood

Critics Consensus

While the show's likable cast has potential, poor attempts at cultural commentary and weak characterizations leave The Neighborhood stuck in a creative dead end.

Tv Season Info

Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield), a friendly and warm professional conflict negotiator from the Midwest, finds himself moving to Los Angeles after his wife, Gemma (Beth Behrs), gets a new job. Now, he must contend with his new neighbor Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer), who is suspicious of outsiders. Calvin's wife, Tina (Tichina Arnold), however, is more than happy to have new neighbors come in, while the couple's unemployed older son, Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney), believes that Dave is a kindred soul. Now, Dave realizes that forging a connection with Calvin is the final step in order to finally settle into their new neighborhood.

Critic Reviews for The Neighborhood Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

CBS has taken major steps to make its new fall series considerably more diverse than last time. The Neighborhood hits that mark, but also marches to the same-old/same-old sitcom beats.

The ceiling of this house is closer to a one-story ranch than a spacious villa, making this Neighborhood unfit for new tenants.

Good-natured, a few funny lines, and Cedric stars as only Cedric can, The Neighborhood has potential.

Top Critic

Despite the best efforts of the cast (especially Max Greenfield, who was so memorable on Fox's New Girl), this show fails to offer little more than its concept implies.

Nov 24, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The Neighborhood is built around Greenfield and Cedric the Entertainer, a match made in sitcom heaven.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Regressive racial attitudes and bad jokes mar family sitcom.

Oct 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Comedy pilots, however, are notoriously messy, and this one may eventually find its groove. I am skeptical, however, about its ability to truly engage in meaningful social commentary about race when it has to play to a laugh track.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

In this iteration, Calvin schools Dave on his assumptions, and Dave walks on eggshells. There's little debate and a lot of apologizing.

Oct 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite the talent, we don't think The Neighborhood is going to rise above its gag-heavy writing and find the funny in what could have been some interesting characters.

Oct 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Perceptiveness alone will not carry a sitcom; it's got to have jokes. And The Neighboorhood relies far too much on the novelty of a black character spouting edgy lines that we're more accustomed to hearing from a white mouth.
