Episode Title: How to Have a One-Night Stand

  • Rob Brunner

    The notion that decent guys need to learn how to be "real men" from macho jerks is a little silly, even for a sitcom. But the pilot does serve up some laughs, especially when Flight of the Conchords vet Rhys Darby is on screen.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    I've watched the pilot possibly too many times not to notice how the parts have been glued together and the jokes teed up, but the performances are good.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    How to be a Gentleman has some sharp writing, good byplay between the stars and a fair number of laughs.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    This is a comedy with a solid core group of characters and a chance to go the distance.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Raffi Paul

    As ordinary as this plot sounds, How To Be a Gentleman has a couple of things going for it, namely, Hornsby and Dillon.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The cast is an embarrassment of potential, but Dillon is wearing as a Drama-like dude; the cultural-obsession-with-youth trope is old; and the learning-to-be-a-man stuff is pat. It's very meh.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    This series won't last long enough for him to complete his education.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    On top of having a dated premise, it just feels tired.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    There's no "here" here.

    Newsday Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    There's nothing to really dislike about CBS' new sitcom How to Be a Gentleman. There's just not that much there at all.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    How to Be a Gentleman feels as if it comes from someone who knows a fair amount about constructing a sitcom but not quite enough about being funny.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Even were this Odd Couple rehash amusing, you'd still wonder what sane person would think the dimwit who bullied him in high school was the ideal Sherpa into modern manhood.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    It seems to have an awful lot in common with a group of shows that never [found themselves], the generic and unfunny fodder that NBC threw up between its popular comedies back when it ruled Thursday nights with Friends, Seinfeld, Frasier, and Will and Grace.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    It couldn't be more forgettable, but what's really irksome is the waste of a strong supporting cast.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    With most of the near-laughs coming from the supporting players, Hornsby (also a producer on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and Dillon are reduced to set-ups and groaning rim shots.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    I hope Andrew (David Hornsby) has penned an etiquette column on how a gentleman handles getting canceled by a network, because he's going to need it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    There may be something salvageable here--this kind of odd couple pairing worked great in, well, "The Odd Couple"--but the pilot is virtually humorless.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    It's painful to watch so many talented comedic actors, like Darby, Rajskub, and Dave Foley, who plays Andrew's boss at the magazine, suffer with this material.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    How to be a Gentleman is exactly the kind of TV comedy Johnny Drama would be thrilled to star in.
