'How to Be a Gentleman' cancelled

In case yesterday’s announced move to the Saturday night Phantom Zone wasn’t a clear enough sign of How to Be a Gentleman’s fate, here’s another: Production on the Kevin Dillon series is shutting down.

Gentleman is easily the highest-rated show to get axed so far this fall, having failed to live up to the expectations provided by its giant lead in, The Big Bang Theory (bad reviews didn’t help, the show ranked 42 out of 100 on Metacritic). The comedy joins NBC’s Playboy Club and Free Agents in the fall boneyard.
