Yes, Dear is an American television sitcom that aired from October 2, 2000, to February 15, 2006, on CBS. It starred Anthony Clark, Jean Louisa Kelly, Mike O'Malley, and Liza Snyder.

In the United States, reruns of the show can be seen on Nick at Nite, Nick Jr. (as part of the NickMom block), and CMT. In Canada, it can be seen on Joytv.

Plot[edit]

Greg Warner (Clark) is a motion picture executive, and Kim Warner (Kelly) is a stay-at-home mother to Sammy and, later, Emily. Kim's sister, Christine Hughes (Snyder), and Christine's husband, Jimmy Hughes (O'Malley), along with their two sons, Dominic (Joel Homan) and Logan (Brendon Baerg), live in the Warners' guest house.

Much of the show's humor comes from the fact that all four adult leads are largely stock characters. Greg is the stereotypical "nice guy," constantly being henpecked by his high-strung wife. Both contrast to the decidedly working-class and less restrained Hugheses, with Jimmy having the personality of an oaf and Christine being somewhat more crass.

Airing changes[edit]

CBS announced the cancellation of Yes, Dear in early 2004, but later ordered 13 episodes for mid-season. After canceling Center of the Universe, CBS began airing the new Yes, Dear episodes on Wednesday, February 16, 2005, at 9:30 p.m. EST. CBS ordered an additional season of 22 episodes for 2005–2006, but that order was later cut to 13.

Syndication[edit]

During the second half of 2004, reruns aired on the cable station TBS at 1:00 p.m. As of January 2005, TBS began airing the show at 3:00 p.m. The show aired in local syndication in 2005–06; in the fall of 2006, 20th Television, the syndication subsidiary of 20th Century Fox, took the show out of barter syndication and replaced it with Still Standing. As of May 1, 2012, Yes, Dear began airing at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Monday through Friday on Nicklodeon's Nick at Nite. As of May, 2014, it has been removed from the broadcast schedule. On August 1, 2012 CMT began showing reruns of the show weeknights from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT). The show also airs on Nick Jr. as part of their mother-oriented block NickMom. Similar to the Nick@Nite programming block, NickMom airs television series which are not aimed at a children's audience.

Connection to Raising Hope[edit]

In 2010, Garcia premiered a new show, titled Raising Hope on Fox Broadcasting Company. The new show has made numerous references since its inception to Garcia's other show, My Name Is Earl. In season three, episode sixteen, Brian Doyle-Murray is shown as a Hollywood studio executive, a reference to his role as Mr. Savitsky. The following episode, Jimmy and Christine are featured prominently as characters who have made a habit out of watching the sex tape made by the new show's characters, Virginia and Burt Chance. Dominic and Logan are also referenced in conversation.
