Summary

Two couples and their single friend deal with the complications of dating, commitment and marriage. It looks at different relationships in various stages, starring Oliver Hudson and Bianca Kajlich as newly engaged sweethearts, Patrick Warburton and Megyn Price as a long-married couple and David Spade as their still-single friend. The show features writers from the Emmy Award-winning Everybody Loves Raymond.

History

After a successful first season, Rules of Engagement was renewed for a second season, which began airing on Monday, September 24, 2007. Production on the show was halted on November 6, 2007 due to the 2007-2008 Writers' Strike. However, once the strike ended, CBS announced that the show would return April 14, 2008 with 6 episodes.[1] On May 13, 2008 CBS renewed the series for a third season, which began airing on March 2, 2009.[2] On May 18, 2009 CBS renewed Rules of Engagement for a fourth season, which began airing on Monday, March 1 at 8:30.[3]
