THE NEIGHBORS - "Halloween-ween" - Since arriving on Earth, the aliens - led by the Bird-Kersees - have viewed Halloween as a threat and have set up a barrier at the gates of Hidden Hills to prevent children dressed in costumes from entering the community. The Weavers, on the other hand, are excited about their first Halloween in the suburbs and want to open the gates of the community to celebrate. They do their best to explain the ritual of trick-or-treating to the aliens. Meanwhile, Marty and Debbie's fears are realized when Amber, Max and Abby reject their family costume plans, on "The Neighbors," WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24 (8:30-9:00 p.m. ET).

While that definitely sounds like something Larry Bird would say (doesn’t it, though?), that’s not quite what I mean. In its redeeming freshman season, The Neighbors certainly didn’t shy away from the “musical episode” and even digging at Glee at one point.

Well, according to TVLine, in the season 2 premiere the show is going to make another dig at another popular musical series….

“…Would you believe those puckish aliens – the ones many of us a year ago predicted wouldn’t last long, let alone beyond a whole season – take a dig at the once-buzzy, now-deceased Smash in the season opener?”

Do you think the “dig” in question is a quick-witted line of dialogue, or will it play into the plot of the premiere somehow?
