CBS surprisingly canceled the highly rated, but critically lambasted, HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN, and is replacing this dreadful and unfunny comedy with the far better RULES OF ENGAGEMENT with David Spade instead on Thursdays at 8:30pm. HOW TO A GENTLEMAN had a top peak rating of 9 million viewers, but was not seen as being up to the quality of other Thursday night CBS shows by comparison.
With 9 million viewers, the show is the highest rated new show to be canceled this season. But, apparently CBS was unhappy where the series was headed, and decided that it just didn’t live up to it’s promise as a new entry. My impressions of this show weren’t good either. I didn’t like the show at all.
