The Neighbors, Shark Tank premiere Friday on Channel 7
NEW YORK (WABC) -- The neighbors next door in Jersey are aliens who have spent a decade hiding out as humans. The Weavers have gotten to know them over the course of a full season and now their daughter is dating one.
The series was not an immediate hit so members of the cast were surprised and delighted to hear they'd been renewed.
"I was having sushi in Hoboken with my girlfriend & I stood - up and screamed I think people thought I got bad fish," Lenny Venito said.
"I called my dad and we screamed like little girls together for about five minutes straight," Tim Jo said.
"I was really happy I wasn't going to have to work in a restaurant so it was good, yeah," Toks Olagundoye said.
Surely her restaurant days are behind her!
