What’s the secret of Rules‘ existence in this sitcom-slim era? ”This is a very dude-like comedy that fits very well with Two and a Half Men,” says exec producer Tom Hertz. ”David Spade, some people love, some people don’t, but he’s just plain funny. Patrick Warburton is great.” For the second season, says Hertz, ”we’re going to stick to nuts-and-bolts relationship things. Adam [Oliver Hudson] and Jennifer [Bianca Kajlich] will decide to make a sex tape and learn the fantasy in your head is better than the reality. Jeff [Warburton] is going to have a snoring problem that causes a lot of conflict.” Speaking of snores, Hertz adds that ”David Spade had some interesting things going on in his personal life — he knows a lot of ladies, some of whom we might like to have on.” Did someone say Heather Locklear? Woo-hoo! She’ll pop by for two episodes.
