    Love crime shows, have always liked Chi McBride so I’m already hyped about ‘Golden Boy’. ‘Rules of Engagement’ needs to stay; ‘How I Met….’, can’t how it has stayed on this long.

  2. says

    Rules of Engagement should get better treatment than what they have gotten. That is a great show and CBS needs to stop wasting time creating new shows that will just get cancelled.

    Rules of Engagement is a genuinely funny show. This could have been one of the most popular comedies ever produced if not for the insane grudge of some studio idiot whose mouth far exceeded his intelligence. Don’t know why this empty suit had it in for this show but, a pox on him. My congrats to the cast & crew for their excellent performance.
