CBS orders sitcom “How to Be a Gentleman” with Dave Foley, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Rhys Darby

Word on the street has it that CBS has ordered How to Be a Gentleman to series as one of its new sitcoms for Fall 2011.

The comedy from creator David Hornsby stars Hornsby as a magazine writer who has to learn about life with the help of his high-school buddy, a personal trainer and other assorted characters in his world. Its co-stars include Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall, NewsRadio), Mary Lynn Rajskub (The Larry Sanders Show, 24) and Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords).

So far, we've also learned that the Eye Network has ordered Two Broke Girls (from co-creator Whitney Cummings, starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs), canceled Shit My Dad Says and midseason's Mad Love, and plans to reboot Two and a Half Men this fall with Ashton Kutcher, following the firing of Charlie Sheen.

More to come later this week when CBS holds its upfront presentation for the media and advertisers.
