'How to Be a Gentleman': What the Viewers Are Saying

"Super funny," opines one, while another claims it "makes 'Whitney' look like 'Arrested Development' or 'All in the Family.'"

Less than a month after Entourage wrapped its series run, Kevin Dillon hit small screens once again Thursday night in CBS' new comedy How to Be a Gentleman.

The sitcom follows Andrew (David Hornsby, who also created the show), a straight-laced etiquette columnist for a men’s magazine.

When the magazine is revamped into a Maxim-style publication, Andrew turns to high school bully-turned-gym owner Bert (Dillon) in an effort to make him over.

How to Be a #Gentleman will have to be better to avoid a quick cancellation. And I miss Johnny Drama.

If there's one thing I don't like, it's a laugh track in a show. How to be a Gentleman has one. Good cast, but I cannot overlook it x

How To Be a Gentleman makes Whitney look like Arrested Development or All in the Family. At least Whitney has a LITTLE potential.
