Thirteen episodes were originally ordered for the first season. However, on October 7, after two Thursday episodes aired, it was announced the series episode order had been cut down to nine, effectively ending production immediately, and the remaining seven episodes would be burned off on Saturdays starting October 15 as part of the network's Comedytime Saturday block.
On October 18, CBS pulled the series from its Saturday timeslot after airing only one episode that lost half of the audience from the Two and a Half Men rerun leading into it, completely removing the series from the lineup and leaving the remaining six episodes unaired. CBS has since announced plans to air the remaining episodes over the summer beginning on May 26.

About the show
Inspired by the book of the same name, "How To Be a Gentleman" this series follows an unlikely friendship between Andrew Carlson (David Hornsby),a traditional, refined columnist to an etiquette magazine, and Bert Lansing (Kevin Dillon), a reformed "bad boy" whom Andrew knew in the past, and who has inherited a fitness center. Loud and sloppy Bert is meshed with Andrew when Jerry, Andrew's editor, says that he needs to put some more of a "sexy twist" to his column. Bert is hired as Andrew's life coach to get him learning how to be more of a man rather than the gentleman he has always been.
Along for the ride are Andrew's mom, Diane (Nancy Lenehan) and bossy sister, Janet(Mary Lynn Rajskub), who support the plan. Although Andrew's and Bert's views are different, they wind up finding out that they are more similar than they thought. From producers David Hornsby ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Adam Chase ("Friends")comes "How To Be a Gentleman", a comedy in which two worlds collide to find common ground.
