Aliens are invading Disney Channel!

That seems to be the story with the news that Disney Channel will air four episodes of ABC’s The Neighbors on Friday Dec. 28 from 8-10 p.m. This is the first time that Disney has run a special presentation of a current ABC show (they are part of the same company).

The Neighbors stars Jami Gertz and Simon Templeman and premiered in September, revolves around a family that moves to a new home only to discover that their neighbors are all aliens (and, strangely enough, all have sports star names).  The show, which has been averaging around 6.5 million viewers an episode for the 10 episodes aired so far, is likely looking to expand its audience and placing it on Disney Channel for a mini-marathon likely wants to drive home to parents that this is a show the whole family can watch together.

Check out the full schedule beaming down on Dec. 28 below:

8:00 p.m.: The Neighbors 1-02 “Journey To the Center of the Mall”

8:30 p.m.: The Neighbors 1-03 “Bathroom Etiquette”

9:00 p.m.: The Neighbors 1-05 “Larry Bird and the Iron Throne”

9:30 p.m.: The Neighbors 1-08 “Thanksgiving Is for the Bird-Kersee’s”
