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 ┬íROB! 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?

Remember, Modern Family and The Neighbors are two shows that were almost cancelled after the first episode or two, now, both are some of the best shows on TV. When Scrubs was created, they were terrified that they would get cancelled before they even finished the first season, that’s why they played around with the role of the Janitor so much. They were gonna play him off as a figment of J.D.’s imagination if they got cancelled right away. American Idol and Survivor are still on TV… I know, depressing, right?

I would not be surprised if they cancel it, television these days is going down hill i find. because they keep taking shows that have FINE views (sometimes more views than other shows on the channel) and they cancel them, and claim either budget reasons or views. soo many good NEW shows got cancelled last year after like 5 episodes too (not much a chance to prove themselves). so older shows like this (7 seasons) everyone wants the ‘fresh’ new stuff, they are always looking for “another girlfriend” as spade put it. but they dont realize that the one they have is a 10 and the one they end up replacing it with a 5…television aint like it was when i was young.

if CBS will keep “The Talk” that has like 2 viewers then they absolutely should keep this show!
