Rules of Engagement: David Spade Expects Show to be Cancelled

Rules of Engagement to be cancelledLast season, it looked like Rules of Engagement was being cancelled by CBS when the network decided to order just 13 episodes. Though the network denied the show was coming a close, a source close to the production told us that the cast and crew believed it was the end.

In May, CBS cancelled ¡ROB! and renewed Rules of Engagement for a seventh season at the last minute. It’s expected to return sometime mid-season.

In a recent interview with Reuters, series star David Spade said that he expects there to be just 13 episodes this time around — and that those will be the show’s last.

The actor said that he feels like CBS treats Rules of Engagement like a mistress as they keep the show on the air while they keep searching for a replacement. He joked, “They go out and try to find a new girlfriend and it doesn’t work and they run back and they go: ‘No, no, you’re good, you’re good.’ And it doesn’t work with girls and it seems to work with shows, I guess.”

What do you think? Do you think that Spade is right, that Rules of Engagement will finally be cancelled? Is it time? Will you miss it?

    I cannot believe CBS executives are cancelling (have cancelled) Rules of Engagement. It
    is the one (and only) comedy show I will watch on TV. So tiresome and demeaning to watch ‘comedy’ depicting teens and adults as idiots not playing with a full deck. That is
    really not funny. The dialogue and borderline risqué comments are hilarious, with a very
    good story line on Rules. It is a shame CBS executives do not recognize a GOOD show when they have it and put some of the stagnant shows on that are now playing. I would rather read a good book than watch what is currently showing on CBS.
