This means the David Hornsby-Kevin Dillon series will air the remaining seven episodes in its new home beginning Saturday, Oct. 15 at 8:30 p.m. following encores of Two and a Half Men.

When Gentleman premiered in the enviable post-The Big Bang Theory slot on Sept. 29, it was down a substantial 33 percent in the all-important adults 18-49 demo compared to $#*! My Dad Says the previous year. ($#*! was canceled after one season.) In Week 2, Gentleman sank another 7 percent.
Starting Thursday, Oct. 20, Rules of Engagement will launch its sixth season in Gentleman’s old 8:30 p.m. home.
