Friday TV picks: ‘The Neighbors,’ ‘Call the Midwife’
Tonight in Prime Time
This goofy/silly sitcom about a suburban family (headed by Jami Gertz and Lenny Venito) coping with alien neighbors is back for a second season with guest star Jerry Springer. I hope a paternity test isn’t involved. Season premiere, 8:30 p.m. on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
