CBS Renews Rules Of Engagement For A Seventh Season

Rules Of Engagement cast

Talk about a straggler. Roughly 95% of broadcast network had its cancel or renew decision made last week during upfronts, but CBS is just now announcing that it has ordered a thirteen episode seventh season of the David Spade/Patrick Warburton sitcom Rules Of Engagement. Wow, has this show quietly become an elder statesman of TV or what? It isn't the flashiest comedy, and doesn't seem to inspire a very passionate response from its viewers, but the audience is definitely there, and it's been there consistently for the majority of the show's run.

Rules even outdraws How I Met Your Mother, which is very surprising to me, as HIMYM's fanbase is incredibly vocal about their devotion to the series. I myself watched the first few seasons of ROE, and found it to be a perfectly acceptable sitcom. It gets some laughs, doesn't overstay its welcome, and doesn't really bother with long-term arcs. In short, it follows the classic sitcom formula. Heck, I might even still be watching it today if I didn't completely forget it existed one year and never bothered to catch up on the episodes I missed. Rules Of Engagement may not reach the heights of shows like Community, Modern Family, or The Office, but it has its place in TV nonetheless.

The current plan is for Rules to serve as a dependable mid-season replacement, a spot it has filled admirably on several past occasions. I think that's what CBS likes most about it. They can feel free to cancel a struggling freshman comedy next year, and know that they have a popular show in their back pocket to take its slot.

Do you watch Rules Of Engagement? Are you happy to see that it's coming back?
