‘Rules Of Engagement’ Set To Return For Another Season
For those of you who love the comedy TV series ‘Rules Of Engagement’ and have been wondering since the time it went off the air if it was ever going to return…there is some good news. Turns out, the show is all set to make a comeback for a 7th season. The show has been allotted the Monday 8:30/7:30c timeslot on CBS and shall begin telecast from the coming week.
Tom Hertz the producer of the show joked about the time slot allotted to the show and quoted as saying “I am shocked we didn’t get [the post-Super Bowl slot]. But if this it, then I guess we’ve come full circle. It’s been a long, windy road”. Well, Hertz is right about the “long, windy road” part, as anyone who has followed the show over years knows, how many times the show has been made to jump timeslots. “It’s good for them to have a solid show that they know can perform in their back pocket when something doesn’t perform” Hertz was quoted as saying, revealing the possible reason for CBS choosing to bring back the show mid-season.

Basically, it seems as if the show is a trump card that CBS always likes to keep in its pocket and play it, when the chips are down. Patrick Warburton one of the stars of the show is pretty vocal about his displeasure, regarding how the show has been treated over the years “Nobody wants to be the midseason utility player, but that’s our lot in life. You can’t sit down and talk about it and not gripe about it” Warburton was quoted as saying; seems like he isn’t a big fan of CBS’s strategy. Warburton on his part says, his comments shouldn’t be misconstrued as bitterness or sour grapes, but rather as him laying out the facts.
Warburton further added “Each year, when one of their new shows sh—- the bed, they stick us in, and our audience comes back. We’re No. 1 in the audience loyalty index. … From our position, it might be frustrating at times, but they have a model of the way they do things. I can say in our case, the show and our fans deserve much of the credit because moving us, making us midseason every year, everyone not knowing when we’re on, different timeslots, everyone thinking we’re canceled … is not a model for success. We’re the exception to the rule. To survive the long, arduous route that we’ve taken to get to 100 episodes is certainly not the model” At least, fans of the show would completely agree with what Warburton has said.
