Rules of Engagement Season 6 Premiere RatingsNever underestimate the power of David Spade.

CBS's 'Rules of Engagement' debuted in the former timeslot of 'How to Be a Gentleman' to almost 3 million more viewers than the now-canceled freshman comedy.

The Thurs., Oct. 20 Season 6 premiere of 'Rules' was watched by 11.5 million viewers. The series premiere of 'How to Be a Gentleman' brought in about 9 million viewers. 'Gentleman' had a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 'Rules' got a 3.7.

'How to Be a Gentleman' was pulled from CBS's Thursday line-up after just two episodes and moved to Saturdays, bouncing 'Rules of Engagement' to Thursdays. Production on 'How to Be a Gentleman' was shut down and CBS pulled the show from Saturdays after one airing.

'Rules of Engagement' stars Spade, Patrick Warburton, Megyn Price and Oliver Hudson and tells the stories of a group of friends in various stages of relationships.

I like Rules. Warburton makes every line funny and Price is quite milf-ish. Spade's act is one note, but it's a funny note and it plays well off Kalyan's Timmy. Overall I find the interaction quite funny and realistic in how they poke at one another. That's what guys do.

Please. Spade is the reason I often avoid the show. Thankfully, Adhir Kalyan's Timmy is there to show what a moron Spade's character is. Timmy is the sole reason I watch the show.
