Ok, so what happens to How I Met Your Mother development league? That´s how I use to call Rules of Engagement, and that´s how CBS usually treated the show that always got half season orders to fill vacant slots, and always managed to stick around, well, this is the second time in a row the show´s getting a full season order, since CBS renewed Rules of Engagement for season six.
The show started back in 2007 as a midseason replacement for Two and a Half Men, and has slowly but steadily gained momentum to become a full series in its own right.
Now marking the first time in six years that an original CBS series will air on Saturdays after the network decided to move the show to Saturdays at 8/7 C.
So, another season for the seasoned sitcom coming from CBS, Sony Pictures and Happy Madison, and a new season of David Spade in the flesh of Russell Dunbar.
Update: Rules of Engagement getting renewed meant the episode count reached 96, and now the veteran comedy series has been sold in broadcast syndication. Sony Pictures Television has cleared Rules in 45% of the country, including the top three markets, in a series of barter deals with station groups. In New York, Rules has been sold to Tribune’s WPIX-TV New York, in Los Angeles to CBS’ KCAL-TV and in Chicago to Weigel’s WCIU-TV. Cable syndication for the show is still pending.
What do you think about this? Are you happy CBS renewed Rules of Engagement for a sixth season? Let me know in the comments section.
