Report: ‘Rules Of Engagement’ Season Episode Order Cut From 18 To 13
Deadline.com is reporting that CBS has cut this season’s episode order for sitcom Rules Of Engagement from 18 to 13 (which added to 2 left over episodes from last season would make 15 episodes total for this season).
Based on its ratings alone, as recently as last week, I judged the show a very good bet for another season’s renewal. Even with the episode order cut, I wouldn’t count the show out just yet, but I’ll make it a toss up for renewal or cancellation in the next Renew / Cancel Index post tomorrow.
CBS may choose the expand their sitcom hours in next season’s schedule. If they do that, I’d expect them to keep Rules around.
