How To Be A Gentleman just got slapped in the face by CBS. THR reports that CBS has stopped production on the struggling show only a day after moving it to Saturdays. The show that stars David Hornsby and Kevin Dillon will air the remaining seven episodes beginning Saturday, Oct. 15 at 8:30 p.m. following encores of Two and a Half Men.
The show failed, even though it aired in a good spot too, right after The Big Bang Theory on Sept. 29. The ratings were down a substantial 33 percent in the all-important adults 18-49 demo compared to $#*! My Dad Says the previous year. ($#*! was canceled after one season.) The show dropped another 7 percent in the second week.
Rules of Engagement will launch it's sixth seasonn in it's old place on Thursday, Oct. 20. CBS has been fairing better with 2 Broke Girls, which is not too bad. That show has been given a full order. I never watched the show, so I don't know if it was horrible or not. What are your thoughts?
