Rules of Engagement premiered as a midseason replacement on CBS in February 2007, as part of the network’s successful Monday-night comedy lineup. The seven-episode first season received strong ratings, and the show came back the following fall, but its second season was cut short by the Hollywood writers’ strike. The third season debuted once again at midseason in 2009, and the fourth and fifth seasons followed.
