the neighborhood

By John Kennedy

Now in its fifth hit season, The Neighborhood is the perfect TV destination for kicking back and unwinding with friends. Which one of its lovably quirky residents is most like you?

Are you Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer), the street-smart, tell-it-like-it-is entrepreneurial business leader? Dave (Max Greenfield), the idealistic military-vet-turned-counselor? Tina (Tichina Arnold), the faith-filled, multi-talented entertainer? Gemma (Beth Behrs), the progressively principled principal? Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney), the resilient and understanding baseball coach? Marty (Marcel Spears), the brilliant-but-nerdy engineer? Necie (Chelsea Harris), the tough-yet-sweet boxer? Or Grover (Hank Greenspan), the still-trying-to-figure-it-all-out observer of life?

Tally up your answers to see which neighbor you resemble.

The Neighborhood airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streams on Paramount+.

Brilliant but fun loving, you’re the person everyone likes to tease but also enjoys hanging around. In an often-cynical world, your gentle guilelessness is a most attractive asset.

Mostly B: You’re … Grover!

A child sits in a overstuffed chair with a notepad looking attentive.

Your child-like openness and curiosity is something to cherish and hold onto as you explore the world with your trademark bravery and authority-pricking humor. Be careful though. You still have much to learn.

Mostly C: You’re … Gemma!

Actress Beth Behrs looks surprised as she sits on a couch holding a phone.

You’re an idealistic intellectual who wholeheartedly believes in truth, justice, and the American way—and that requires being honest about past failures. Aside from all that earnestness, you have a light-hearted fun side that those who love you admire and value.

Mostly D: You’re … Dave!

Max Greenfield laughs as he reclines a chair in a living room.

You’re loyal, caring, honest, and fun. It’s hard to imagine anyone having a better friend than you. Perhaps your greatest attribute is your willingness to listen and attempt to understand other people’s stories. Your biggest flaw may be that you try too hard to be good, fair, and kind to those around you. Hey, there are worse flaws you could have.

Mostly E: You’re … Malcolm!

Sheaun McKinney laughs as he sits on a sofa holding a magazine.

A graduate of the School of Hard Knocks with a master’s degree in Comebacks, you’re skilled in pushing through life’s temporary reversals and obstacles. If there’s a mountain in front of you, you’ll go around it, plow under it, or soar over it. One thing you won’t do? Give up. That makes you an inspiration for anyone who’s swung and missed a few times. As your story demonstrates, the game’s not over till it’s over.

Mostly F: You’re ... Calvin!

Cedric the Entertainer wears coveralls and strikes a pose mid-dance in the living room.

You show your love and support for family, friends, and community through your actions more than your words (which can be rather blunt). When all is said and done, they know that whatever road they choose, you’re right behind them win or lose, like the song says. And for that, they are very grateful.

Mostly G: You’re ... Tina!

Tichina Arnold smiles as she wears a denim outfit and sits on a sofa.

A steadfast believer in God, music, family, friends, and community, you exude a joyful enthusiasm for life that is inclusive of everyone and, as a result, just about everyone wants to be around you. Your creative spirit shines a powerful light wherever you go.

Mostly H: You’re ... Necie!

Necie smils and pats Marty on the chest as they stand next to each other.

Strong-willed yet easygoing, dependable yet unpredictable, and a practitioner of tough love, you are the epitome of balance. Even in the most tumultuous times, you maintain your footing. You keep calm, carry on, and enjoy the view from the tightrope. Speaking of that, your most impressive feat is that while others look up to you, you never look down on them.

The Neighborhood airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streams on Paramount+.
