No Surprise: CBS Cancels ‘How to be a Gentleman’

"How to Be a Gentleman" - CBS

1 week, 4 shows, 4 cancellations.

CBS has canceled freshman comedy How to be a Gentleman after its second airing last night, where it delivered around 7 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49. While those numbers may be good on NBC or ABC, the numbers are frowned upon over at CBS. Although I bid on ABC’s Charlie’s Angels to be getting the boot next, I was absolutely certain that Gentleman would be getting the boot soon. Gentleman will be moved to Saturdays, and will have its Thursday 8:30PM slot taken by veteran comedy Rules of Engagement, which will premiere it’s sixth season in its time slot beginning October 20th.

This cancellation is the first for CBS this fall season, and is the fourth overall, after NBC’s The Playboy Club, Free Agents, and The CW’s H8R. This has been a pretty grim week for TV cancellations. What’s going to happen next week? I’m sticking to Charlie’s Angels, but NBC’s Prime Suspect, or even Harry’s Law (currently in it’s second season) could get replaced.

ABC Fall Schedule

It was ABC’s turn to reveal its schedule ahead of its upfront this afternoon in New York City. With it, they unveiled over 13 news that will premiere in the Fall and midseason. Among them, the high-profile action series ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and the new comedy from Tim Allen, now titled ‘Last Man Standing,’ and will air on Thursday and Tuesday nights, respectively. Right after the Tim Allen comedy will premiere another laffer, ‘Man Up,’ confirming what many have predicted to happen: A second ABC Comedy block. Two new shows will premiere on Wednesday nights, one right before ‘Modern Family,’ (Suburgatory) and a drama right after Happy Endings(Revenge.) But wait, what happened to Cougar Town? ABC has actually held the Courtney Cox comedy until the midseason, premiering after ‘Dancing With the Stars’ ends next year. Usually, midseason shows don’t get full season pickups, but ‘Town’ was picked up for a full 22-episode season, so CT fans rejoice! Only one change has come to Fridays, with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition being moved from Sunday nights to Friday nights, and Saturday nights are filled with College football. Finally, a big change to Sundays, with 2 new dramas being added to save the troubled night, with veteran drama ‘Desperate Housewives’ aging with every passing season. Fantasy drama ‘Once Upon A Time’ airs at 8 on Sundays, and drama/thriller ‘Pan Am’ will air right after ‘Housewives’ at 10 PM.

Just as I’ve done on my other schedule posts, here’s how the Fall schedule will look like on your TV listings, from Entertainment Weekly.
