    As usual, CBS renewed "Rules of Engagement" IMHO as the potential filler if anything goes wrong with the Monday lineup. From The Hollywood Reporter:

    I've been recording some of them and sometimes watch one or two on the CBS channel on Windows Media Center, but I'm not impressed with where it seems to be going. As with so many other shows, the first season may have been the best and the second may not have been too bad, but then they start messing with the format.

    If they are going to change something, dump David Spade. I don't get the point of his character. Other than the coffee shop, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the couples.

    If you dump Spade you dump the show. It's a Happy Madison, aka Adam Sandler, production. His buddy Spade gets dumped and he drops the show.

    I like Spade's character ... he completes the formula of a new couple, old couple and forever single friend.

    I just have no use for him period. He wasn't too bad at first in "Just Shoot Me", but he got annoying later on. He ruined "8 Simple Rules".

    I really don't know why, but we watch the show when it's on for a few chuckles. Without Spade's annoying character Russell there'd be no Timmy character.

    But truthfully the dynamic that makes the show watchable is between the characters Audrey, Jeff, Adam and Jennifer.

    I can't stand how stupid they've made Adam. Other than him I love the show. I do wish they had done something for closure on Russell's wedding. It's like it never existed.

    They could work Timmy in somewhere else.

    But what really ticks me off is that this is another show that appears to have gone the baby, baby, baby, wahhhhhhh, baby, baby, wahhhhh, wahhh, wahhhh, route. I'll never understand why they have to screw up perfectly good shows with preggosauri.

    Does anybody knows the name of the office building that the Spade character works in?

    Same here, I like his character and how Timmy plays off him too.

    He's been that stupid since the pilot episode.
