'The Neighboorhood' Stars Beth Behrs, Max Greenfield Are Thankful for Live Audience: "Keeps You On Your Toes"

"I tend to have good instincts for other people and bad instincts for me," Greenfield says about what jokes work and don't with the show's live audience.

It's Thanksgiving time in The Neighborhood

The CBS sitcom is joining the Turkey Day tradition of Thanksgiving-centered episodes on TV.

The freshman comedy's stars Max Greenfield and Beth Behrs chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about the series, including its ensemble cast with Cedric the Entertainer, Tichina Arnold, Sheaun McKinney and Marcel Spears.

"It's a very true ensemble," said Greenfield. "We're in our first season so they're skewing some of the storylines a little bit more towards the entry points of Cedric and I and Beth and Tichina, but our show is the best when it really gives everybody an opportunity to shine."

Greenfield did add, however, that Cedric is "definitely the leader and dictates the tone."

Behrs echoed Greenfield's sentiments on the cast's strength. "Every actor on the show can carry the show," she said. "It was an instant chemistry when Max and I came in with everybody. We're really lucky."

On how he'd sum up the first season, Greenfield quipped, "It's bound to get canceled. We're having so much fun that this is not going to continue."

The element both stars agree that benefits the multicam comedy is its live audience. Behrs told THR, "You know when you're going to fail because they're not going to laugh."

"It definitely keeps you on your toes," said Greenfield. 

The Neighborhood airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBS
