The Guys Next Door

Show Summary

The Guys Next Door was a band that also hosted a sketch comedy show aimed at a teen audience.

The show marked a departure from conventional wisdom about Saturday Morning TV. NBC had made a commitment to shy away from cartoon programming and introduce an entire live-action line-up on Sat. mornings. When ABC, won the much sought after contract with the band The New Kids on the Block, NBC created The Guys Next Door as a response. NKOTB was committed to an animated show to be aired Sat. mornings. NBC gambled that a live action show featuring a likable, clean-cut boy band would be able to compete.

The band released one album, and NBC only aired 13 episodes of sketch show.
