The Neighbors, ABC’s sitcom about aliens masquerading as suburbanites, is critically reviled but a hit with audiences. An upcoming guest star can relate to that experience. TV Line reports director Michael Bay will play himself in an upcoming episode.
Bay will run into Jami Gertz’s character in a nightclub. A scene from season one implied an extraterrestrial origin for the “Transformers” director. Characters marveled at the authenticity of his alien depictions. Despite critics branding it one of the seasons worst shows, The Neighbors earned a full season pickup. It has averaged 6.8 million viewers in ABC’s Wednesday night comedy block.
Nashville, a critical darling for ABC, is struggling in the ratings. Viewers are again showing us how little we know about what they want to see. Oh well, at least we all seem to be in agreement on Scandal.
