How to Be a Gentleman – CBS
Premieres Thursday, September 22nd at 8:30pm
Gentleman was created by David Hornsby. David was to originally to be Mac from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia but has since settled into a writing position and appears on Sunny every once in a while as the character Rickety Cricket. The CBS sitcom is about an uptight and proper columnist who butts heads with his slovenly personal trainer played by
Johnny Drama Kevin Dillon. The show’s supporting cast is pretty freaking impressive including Dave Foley (The Kids In The Hall), Rhys Darby (Flight Of The Conchords), and Mary Lynn Rajskub (Road Trip, Dude Where’s My Car?)
OUR CALL: This sitcom will probably do just fine in the ratings, with CBS’ monster The Big Bang Theory as the lead-in and the general stableness of the network’s sitcoms, it’s a safe bet this will last. But then again, Shit My Dad Says was in the same situation at the beginning of last season. Stylistically it’s different from competing critical darling sitcoms Community and Parks And Recreation so the fanbases probably would not overlap.
