'How To Be A Gentleman' Cancelled After Shutting Down Production

CBS hasn't released an official statement but 'How To Be A Gentleman' is all but cancelled after the comedy was ordered to shut down production over the weekend.

The series, which is expected to air the rest of its episodes on Saturday night, was pulled from Thursdays after faltering despite being handed the post-'The Big Bang Theory' timeslot.

It had averaged 8 million viewers but CBS executives viewed it as a failure given the 14 million lead-in from 'Big Bang'.

The series was also down over 35 percent in the adults 18-49 demo compared to '$#*! My Dad Says' the previous year.

Meanwhile, the network has announced that 'Rules of Engagement' will take over the Thursday slot beginning with its Season 6 premiere on October 20.

The consistently performing series, which has served as CBS' backup plan more than once, was originally set to air on Saturday nights.
