CBS Replaces David Spade's Rules With ¡Rob! Schneider, Schedules Undercover Boss' Return

CBS is replacing one Saturday Night Light alum with another.

The David Spade-starrer Rules of Engagement is being temporarily benched to make way for Rob Schneider’s new sitcom, ¡Rob!

The half-hour comedy, starring Schneider as a bachelor who marries into a tight-knit Mexican-American family, debuts in Rules‘ time slot — Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c — on Jan. 12.

Rules will return to its Thursday home later in the season, but with a reduced episode order, according to our sister site Deadline. Instead of airing 20 half-hours this season — an 18-episode order, plus two leftover installments from last season — CBS has cut its tally down to 15 total episodes.

Additionally, the Eye network announced that the reality series Undercover Boss will return for its third season on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 8 pm, with Amazing Race to launch its next cycle sometime in the spring.
