CBS Cuts 'Rules of Engagement' Short

Rules of EngagementIs this the end of the road for 'Rules of Engagement'?

According to Deadline, CBS has cut the episode order for the long-running sitcom from 18 to 13.

'Rules' had two episode held from last season, so Season 6 will now run 15 episodes as opposed to 20.

The David Spade-fronted series has bounced around CBS's schedule for years, often serving as a midseason replacement. This season, the series replaced 'How to Be a Gentleman' on Thursdays following 'The Big Bang Theory' at 8:30PM.

So far the show has been posting good numbers, averaging at least 11 million viewers per episode. If it's doing OK, then why the shortened episode order? CBS needs to make room for its midseason comedy project starring Rob Schneider.

Tell us: Do you want another season of 'Rules of Engagement'?

Oh and I forgot Timmy - love him and his subtle way of "nailing" Russell

I've missed RoE one of the funniest shows on TV - actually some subtle humor not some over the top gags that just rely on sex jokes. I want to know what happens to Jeff & Audrey's baby and Adam is just too funny as a "doesn't have clue" neighbor. Please bring this show back. Other shows don't hold a candle to this gem

yes...all the other CBS shows they are trying to jam into their schedule suck
2 broke girls - gimme a break / Mike and Molly - they should be embarassed to air that thing
they should have left it on Monday might between HIMYM and 2HM - God forbid you actually have a comedy that is funny on you "Comedy Monday" block
