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.

This is what we need on tv these days. It gives a small insight into both cultures. It's educational without most people even realizing it (the people that rated it below 5). The show showcases the stereotypes that both cultures have toward one another and shows us how these situations can be handled peacefully. They don't always agree but they can get along. Nice work!!
