Wondering what happened to Neighbors With Benefits last night?
In an effort to be a diligent TV recapper, I went to set my DVR yesterday before heading off to my parents’ house for wholesome Easter family fun, and noticed that the not-so-wholesome fun of Neighbors With Benefits wasn’t scheduled in its normal timeslot. Yesterday was a big, BIG TV premiere day, not to mention a holiday, so I assumed A&E was just moving the show from its normal airdate & time as a ratings strategy. But I have access to databases, so I ran a query to see when the show would next air to make sure I wouldn’t miss it, and I came up with zilch.
“Nobody cancels a show after only 2 airings,” I thought. I thought wrong.
I don’t yet have official confirmation from A&E, but some credible sources are reporting that the 9-episode show has been axed already, after episode 2. So if you’re looking for Neighbors With Benefits, look no further, because it has disappeared into the ether.
Of course, if anything changes and the show makes a reappearance, I’ll let you know.
What do you think? Are you a little relieved it’s gone, or were you looking forward to seeing what would happen next?
