CBS execs are no doubt glad that they made the deal to renew this venerable sitcom. It was initially scheduled for Saturday nights but was shifted to Thursdays after the failure of How to Be a Gentleman. Compared to the season six debut of Rules, the show is up by 16% in the demo. Rules aired on Mondays and Thursdays last year. The nine episodes that aired in this Thursday timeslot averaged a 2.5 in the demo with 8.47 million.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.56 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Rules of Engagement TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a seventh season?

We love Rules of Engagement and hope it will return. We stopped watching Rob so the ratings will go down and Rules of Engagement will come back. It is one of the funniest sitcoms on tv. Please!

Andy January 29, 2012 at 11:15 pm

Funniest Show Left On TV!
Love Patrick Warburton! This is the only funny show left to watch since the new Two and a Half men SUCKS! Two broke girls is ok but RULES RULES!

Margie January 24, 2012 at 12:57 pm

DON’T CANCEL RULES!!

Sue January 14, 2012 at 12:38 pm

What happen to Rules? If it has been replaced by Rob CBS screw up Rob sucks

Erica December 17, 2011 at 7:36 pm

My husband and I look forward to watching the how and always looking to see when it will be on. We laugh every time. We were waiting patiently for the season to start and of course it started late. Keep this show on!

Jinko December 17, 2011 at 3:24 pm

It is a disgusting, mindless show. Hateful, horrible characters. It is supposed to be a comedy, and it is the least funny show that has ever been on t.v. Cannot understand why this show keeps going year after year. It should never have been aired in the first place.

jeannie December 16, 2011 at 8:22 pm

I love the show. Every episode gives me a good laugh.

rob December 14, 2011 at 4:53 pm

I think this show is the best comedy on TV. All the characters are funny especially Oliver Hudson who plays Adam. I record the show and watch his parts over and over. Hope the show stays on for another 5 years!

Craig November 4, 2011 at 3:19 pm

I really enjoy this show, but I know that its ratings are not just because of the quality of the show. I think people are so impressed with CBS that they are even watching shows that would tank on another network.

Ed Brown October 31, 2011 at 4:59 pm

Still one of the best comedies on TV.

Leighann October 24, 2011 at 5:45 am

We love this show…..It’s in a perfect slot and we plan to continue watching.

mike October 23, 2011 at 1:07 pm

i’m a big fan of rules their one-liners bring more laughs in one episode than Whitney two broke girls and the new two and a half men combined its never gotten a constant slot always bumped around i’m glad its teamed up with tbbt finaly a quality hour of tv on thursday.
p.s. Bianca Kajlich has quite possibly the nicest butt on tv today

Bud October 23, 2011 at 10:12 am

RoE is like a “Coach” and “Wings.” A funny show with a likable cast. It’s not a show you race home for or even make it appointment TV. It’s there, it’s safe, and you know you didn’t lose 30 minutes watching it. I’m glad it did well on its move to Thursday. The cast and crew deserve better treatment since it has survived after being pushed around the CBS schedule.

Jim October 23, 2011 at 10:01 am

We watch this show for Patrick Warburton, not Spade

Ross October 22, 2011 at 9:27 pm

END THIS SHOW NOW!
I really wanted it to limp on Saturday nights but the execs at CBS decided not to.
