The series premiere had an okay debut with a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.98 million viewers. It was in second place for the timeslot, well below The X Factor on FOX. It lost 44% of its demo lead-in from The Big Bang Theory and the network was down by 32% year-to-year (as compared to now-cancelled $#*! My Dad Says). If Gentleman’s numbers don’t improve, it’s unlikely that the sitcom is going to survive.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

I agree. We loved the show too! my wife and kids told their friends about it too.

It was smart funny and felt that the Hornsby and Dillon character had great chemistry. Rhys Darby and Dave Foley were hilarious too. I hope that the word gets out about how great this show is. I can’t wait to see what they do next Thursday night.

Rarely does a cast like this get on TV and I hope people start to discover for themselves how laugh out loud it is!

We LOVED the How to be a Gentleman pilot! There were some laugh out loud moments
and how often does one get THAT? Hornsby and Dillon were great! A modern Odd Couple.
The family of Hornsby was hilarious – the mom at the dinner table demonstrating
her peripheral vision – and the pretty, yet off-the-wall date were unique.
I’ve been promoting it w/ all my friends and telling my daughter to promote
on her facebook and twitter.
