With the magical 100-episode mark approaching, a hit CBS sitcom is making progress with its syndication effort, Deadline.com reported. Sony Pictures Television has placed "Rules of Engagement" in 45% of the country, including the top three markets, the story says.

"Rules" will be shown on WPIX-TV in New York, KCAL-TV in Los Angeles and WCIU-TV in Chicago.

John Weiser, Sony Pictures Television president, said of the deals, "The show’s compatibility with ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and ‘Two and a Half Men,’ combined with its strong, consistent performance on CBS among male viewers, has been a major enticement to local stations. It’s a win, win for buyers because the show repeats better than any comedy on television.”

"Rules" is still working on cable syndication deals.
