'How to Be a Gentleman': What the Viewers Are Saying
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.
Most critics have been underwhelmed by the pilot. But what are viewers saying?
Among those who hit Twitter to praise the show:
Rene J. Rodriguez

'How To Be a Gentleman' review: Very funny people, very few laughs
I really wanted to like "How To Be A Gentleman" David Hornsby is adorable but the show, eh. Only part I laughed at was the "fried nips"
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.
