How to Be a Gentleman Pulled From Schedule It's time to really say goodbye to 'How to Be a Gentleman.' CBS has pulled the fledgling comedy from its Saturday schedule after only one airing.

Originally airing on Thursdays after ratings hit 'The Big Bang Theory,' the freshman comedy was shuffled off to Saturdays and production was shut down. Now after one Saturday show, it looks like this is truly the end for 'How to Be a Gentleman.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Sat., Oct. 15 airing was watched by 2.4 million total viewers and had a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The show's lead-in, a rerun of 'Two and a Half Men,' was watched by 3.6 million viewers and had a 0.9 18-49 rating.

Created, written by and starring David Hornsby, 'How to Be a Gentleman' was based on the book of the same name by John Bridges. 'Entourage' star Kevin Dillon and '24' scene-stealer Mary Lynn Rajskub rounded out the cast. The show premiered to 9 million viewers, but fell to 7.5 million viewers in its second Thursday outing.

The show's Thursdays at 8:30PM timeslot will now be occupied by 'Rules of Engagement.'
