CBS shelves short-lived sitcom 'Gentleman'

NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- CBS has shut down production of the sitcom "How to Be a Gentleman" amid a ratings slump that began as soon as it debuted last month.

The Hollywood Reporter said the network planned to run out the clock with the remaining seven episodes airing Saturday night after "Two and a Half Men" reruns.

"Gentleman" stars David Hornsby, Kevin Dillon and Mary Lynn Rajskub and centers on the relationship between a newspaper columnist and his personal trainer.

The show premiered Sept. 29 after "The Big Bang Theory" but fared poorly in the 18-49 year demographic when compared to its 2010 predecessor "$#*! My Dad Says," the Reporter said. The numbers never recovered and "Rules of Engagement" will be moved into the Thursday time slot.
