The new Kevin Dillon sitcom How to Be a Gentleman just got rude treatment from the network.
CBS announced Friday that the series -- which stars Dillon and David Hornsby as a pair of odd-couple pals -- is being bumped to Saturdays at 8:30 p.m., a relative no-man's land, effective October 15.
Rules of Engagement will be taking Gentleman's time slot of Thursdays at 8:30 when it returns with its season six premiere on October 20. In the meantime, a repeat of The Big Bang Theory will run in the timeslot on October 13.
The former Gentleman timeslot is particularly desirable, coming as it does after the very popular The Big Bang Theory.
Gentleman premiered on September 29 to lukewarm ratings, losing 33 percent of the lead-in from the series premiere of the short-lived series $#*! My Dad Says last fall. For its sophomore episode Thursday, the series slid seven percent, to a 2.5 rating/7 share in the advertiser-friendly adults 18-49 demographic.
In its new timeslot, Gentleman will be sandwiched between repeats of Two and a Half Men and CSI: Miami.
