CBS Moves Soft Gentleman, Returns Rules of Engagement to Thursdays
Taking over the Thursdays-at-8:30 time slot is Rules of Engagement, which will premiere its new season there starting Oct. 20. (A repeat of The Big Bang Theory fills the vacancy next week.)
Gentleman, starring David Hornsby and Kevin Dillon, launched to 9 million viewers — a number that was not too shabby, yet still down 30 percent from what $#*! My Dad Says did last season in the post-Big Bang slot. Gentleman then dipped to 7.8 million viewers in its second outing. UPDATE: Not long after the sitcom’s move was announced, production was shut down, EW.com reports.
Thus far, 2 Broke Girls is the only CBS newbie to get a full-season order. The Eye’s other freshman offerings are the dramas Unforgettable, Person of Interest and A Gifted Man.
