via press release:

Nick at Nite’s line-up of modern comedies expands on Tuesday, May 1 to include the complete library of the beloved series Yes, Dear.  This 122-episode family comedy stars Mike O’Malley (Glee, GUTS) and follows two couples and their wildly divergent parenting styles.  Yes, Dear will air regularly on the network Monday-Friday at 11:00p.m. (ET/PT).




Originally airing from 2000-06 on CBS, Yes, Dear showcases first-time parents Greg (Anthony Clark) and Kim Warner (Jean Louisa Kelly) who aspire to be the model of parenting.  Greg is a successful movie studio executive who must also keep Kim– a neurotic, stay-at-home mother – calm as she strives to be the perfect mother and wife.  Meanwhile, Kim’s sister, Christine Hughes (Liza Snyder), and her ambition-challenged husband, Jimmy (O’Malley), are down-to-earth parents living in Kim and Greg’s guest house, continually reminding them that life will never be perfect.  The series, distributed by Twentieth Television, was created by Gregory Thomas Garcia and Alan Kirschenbaum.

    funny how this show was hated by critics as a stale family comedy, yet it has aired in reruns since 2005 on diffrent channles, and I got to give it credit the odd couple formula works, I got 2 sisters and their husbands are the same it would be a similar situation if they lived together, funny show

    This replaces Friends on the lineup – not cool. (Also, I thought Friends was pulling really good numbers for Nick at Nite?)

  • RJ

    I love Yes, Dear, but where is Friends going?!?!

  • GDfriends

    Yes Dear was under-rated like so many other CBS comedies at the time (King of Queens, Becker)…it was a good little show with a non-original concept and it did pretty decently and was funny….something todays comedies struggle to do.

    There’s not a channel where you can’t find Friends, seriously- there everywhere. I can’t stand Friends, but love Yes, Dear.

  • Ryan Schwartz

    @TMG – Do you honestly believe it’s replacing Friends altogther? That’s just silly. It’ll likely air in the 11pm hour, and Friends will probably get an hour at 10 and an hour at 12. If not, it’ll probably get the 1am hour and air 12-2. Of course, I expect Yes, Dear to tank, and it’ll be shoved to late night slots. It’ll never do as well as Friends is doing.

    fiest two seasons of the show were really funny. but the last ones, in which the black-haired actress were just awfull. brr.

  • hubertwentland5

    *in which the black-haired actress got fat ;p the writing was totally different then.

  • TomSFBay

    This was a really funny show.

  • Ram510

    Yeah! I love Yes, Dear its one of those shows that never gets old to me. I hope it stays on for a very long time

  • Chris L

    Jean-Louisa Kelly. Yummy.

  • Chuck Collins

    “YES DEAR” seems like the perfect setup for a porn parody without much difference except fewer clothes.

  • still good shows on tv

    I like Yes, dear it’s a good, funny sitcom.

  • Bob

    I loved Yes Dear. I thought it was a great show. Glad to see it is coming to Nick at Night. Perhaps some DVDs might be in order.

  • nick

    Is this replacing friends????? It doesn’t even compare to friends. Why are they doing this?

  • MJDB

    I don’t like this show. I thought it was stupid and bland. The only syndicated shows I watch on Nick at Nite are George Lopez and Everybody Hates Chris.

  • Wear Red

    Yes, Dear just proves how strong multi-cams are and critics can hate on them all they want but their never going anywhere so they need to get used to it. Their going to start taking over NBC real soon.

    Friends has been rating well for Nick & Nite so where is Friends going?

  • Riff Rafferty

    This show was the best F.U. to the cridiotics ever. They hated on it until they were red in the face. The only thing that would’ve made its 6 year run even greater was if “Lone Star” had premiered the same year. They would have gotten out their torches and gone on a Nielsen Viewer Hunt!

    P.S. Here’s to hoping we get some McLovin on CBS this fall so they can have a brand-new target to hate on for the next 6 years.

  • Ready to Go

    I think both Yes, Dear and Whitney will all go down as the biggest F.U. to critics ever.

    Yes, Dear started in 2000 and is still making money for 20th FOX in syndication in 2012.

  • JR

    Never cared that much for this show, though IU did watch it a little bit when it first aired.

    Everybody Loves Raymond was the best CBS sitcom of the last 15+ years- fact. :)
