Rerun rights to the show have been picked up by Turner Broadcasting System for a January 2, 2013 debut on TBS. The seventh season will begin airing on CBS on Mondays at 20.30 from February 4, 2013.
John Weiser, president of US distribution at Sony Pictures Television, spoke about Rules’ “ongoing appeal,” adding: “This show consistently outperforms its competition in adult demos and households.”
