ABC first look: ‘The Neighbors’

I asked in the office if “The Neighbors” is the strangest ABC show ever, and someone countered with “Caveman.” I’m still not sure I’m wrong.  Lenny Venito and Jami Gertz star as parents who move into a neighborhood that they soon realize is populated by friendly aliens named after retired athletes. Yep.

If it’s just crazy enough to work, you can thank ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love” writer Dan Fogelman, who is exec producing “Neighbors” with Aaron Kaplan, Chris Koch, Jeff Morton. ABC certainly thinks it’ll fly, giving it the coveted 9:30 p.m. Wednesdays timeslot after “Modern Family,” the same slot that just launched “Don’t Trust the B.”
