THE NEW FALL SEASON: "How To Be a Gentleman"

Bookmark and Share

Too bad you can't copyright ideas because Neil Simon would be even richer. "How To Be a Gentleman" (8:30 tonight, CBS), is basically "The Odd Couple" but odder and not as funny.

Andrew (David Hornsby) plays a refined columnist told to tweak his etiquette column; an old and more rough-hewn classmate (Kevin Dillon) ends up helping him learn a different style of manhood. And Andrew teaches the rough guy a thing or two. (Mary-Lynn Rajskub is wasted in her role as Andrew's sister.)

This didn't click with me at all. It's like "According to Jim"; one of those shows you keep on until the show you really want to watch comes on.
