CBS Moves Soft Gentleman, Returns Rules of Engagement to Thursdays

CBS’ How to Be a Gentleman is on the move, relocating to Saturdays at 8/7c, beginning Oct. 15, the network announced late Friday.

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.)

CBS’ 2 Broke Girls Cash In With Full-Season Order

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.
