CBS Mid-Season Pilot Review: Rules of Engagement - Premieres February 5th

Rules of Engagement

Rules of Engagement - Mondays at 9:30PM ET/PT on CBS
Premieres February 5th at 9:30PM ET/PT

Oliver Hudson, Bianca Kajlich, Megyn Price, David Spade and Patrick Warburton star in RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, a new comedy series that premieres Monday, Feb. 5 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Emmy Award winner Tom Hertz ("The Dennis Miller Show") is the series creator.

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT is a comedy about the different phases of male/female relationships, as seen through the eyes of a newly engaged couple, Adam and Jennifer, a long-time married pair, Jeff and Audrey, and a single guy on the prowl, Russell. As they find out, the often confusing stages of a relationship can seem like being on a roller coaster. People can describe them to you, but to really know what it's like you have to take a ride for yourself.

In the premiere episode, Audrey (Price) and Jeff (Warburton), the long-time married pair, invite newly engaged Jennifer (Kajlich) and Adam (Hudson) to an art opening. But the day before the event, Audrey and Jeff get into an argument about her unused bicycle which has hung on a hook in the couple's apartment for over two years. Their fight causes Adam and Jennifer to question their own decision to get married. Meanwhile, Audrey fixes up Russell (Spade) with a friend thinking that the right woman can change his mind about married life.

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT is produced by Happy Madison Productions and CBS Paramount Network Television in association with Sony Pictures Television. Tom Hertz, Jack Giarraputo, Doug Robinson and Andy Ackerman are the executive producers.

Cast: Patrick Warburton as Jeff, Megyn Price as Audrey, Oliver Hudson as Adam, Bianca Kajlich as Jennifer and David Spade as Russell.
