'Engagement' News for Spade


It looks like David Spade is going to be spending a lot more time on the small screen next spring.

The "Benchwarmers" and "Joe Dirt" star will join the cast of CBS' midseason comedy "Rules of Engagement." And if that isn't enough, Spade will also be sticking around for the third season of "The Showbiz Show With David Spade."

Seriously, could anybody as for any more Spade?


Like so many of Spade's big screen efforts, "Rules of Engagement" comes from Sony Pictures TV-based Happy Madison. It focuses on an engaged couple (Bianca Kajlich and Oliver Hudson), a married couple (Patrick Warburton and Megyn Price) and a single guy (Greg Pitts). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spade will play the best friend of the engaged guy.

Meanwhile, Comedy Central has ordered 13 new weekly episodes of "The Showbiz Show," Spade's skewering of either celebrities or of celebrity-obsessed entertainment shows. The season will premiere in February 2007.

Other TV credits for Spade include "Saturday Night Live," "Just Shoot Me!" and "8 Simple Rules."
