No More "Yes, Dear"

omalley.jpg"Yes, Dear" opened to fairly poor reviews. Now, six years later, CBS has wised up. The TV Squad says that the show may finally come to an end.

The network passed on the back nine order of the sitcom's episodes, meaning it will only get 13 this season instead of 22. Say what? Many thought it was a mainstay of the CBS lineup. Then again, there were many that didn't even know the show was still on the air.

I am thinking now that they've sold the show into syndication, they really don't care what happens or how it all ends -- they just want it to happen fairly quickly. The show is going wrap after 15 episodes this season; two of those were leftovers from last season.

The show, starring comedians Mike O'Malley (The Rick!) and Anthony Clark, has averaged about 7.6 million viewers per episode. It's also been reeking of desperation, bringing in guest star upon guest star (Chuck Norris! Tim Conway! Jillian Barberie! Dale Earnhardt, Jr.! The Wiggles! The CBS reality-show all-stars!). At least it's doing better than Jamie Gertz's "Still Standing," which is barely doing that with 7.19 million viewers each week.

The same thing happened to Ted Danson's "Becker." Its order was cut short and then it just never came back. While I am not a fan of either show, nothing drives me crazier than when they don't let a show tie itself up in a nice, neat package. It's been almost six years, fellas. Let the show leave the fans somewhat happy.

"Yes, Dear" airs every Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. (EST) on CBS. -- Rachel Cericola

Got something to say? Post a comment:

The network is stupid for killing this show. The two couples work well together and mike is a asset to the show. There are many worse shows then this on thier network. I whish there was something that people like us that really do watch the show could do before they take it off the air. Sometimes the brass do not think commonly on these things. I missed a few episodes because the move the time around on it. But as you say Still Standing and King Of Queens are so much better, ha,ha

Bring back yes,Dear and don't fool with Still Standing or King of Queens.

Just leave things as they are instead of bringing in new shows like "Courting Alex", it stinks!

Get rid of all these reality shows and leave the Comedy shows alone!!!!

Thank You!

i started watching Yes dear last year, i got hooked on the show ever since i started watching it as well as the reruns on tbs and upn, now that im really into the show, they kill the show...i say bring it back or end it in a good way.

-- Posted by: Brosko at March 23, 2006 12:07 PM

I started watching reruns of Yes Dear by accident during the day because I was getting bored with all the courtroom-type programming. It wasn't a bad show, but it didn't stand a chance against the reality TV craze that is currently monopolizing television. (Those actors must have cost CBS a lot of money!) I must say that the quality of the shows was uneven; some episodes were very good, others (like Jimmy getting a vasectomy) were pretty lame and annoying. Too bad, though, that the show is gone - it was better than a lot of the TV currently out there.

Why? Why? Why? I loved the show Yes Dear. Please bring it back.
Love you guys.

-- Posted by: Patricia Maulsby at April 7, 2006 2:27 AM

I think that Yes Dear was a good show. It's comedy. It makes people laugh. It made me laugh. But because it didn't make ENOUGH people laugh, it has to go! After six years, if it does have to go, at least give the fans who liked it enough to watch the show, but more importantly, give the actors the respect they deserve and give the show a final episode. Personally, I think that once a series has been on for at least five years, it should get a final episode. They gave six years of their careers and their lives working for the network to at least go out with a final episode, the same way it started with a "pilot" episode.....

Thank GOD "Yes, Dear" is over!!!!!!!!!!! How does a piece of trash like that last that long?? I boycotted CBS on Wednesday night so I wouldn't have to watch that cr--!! Talk about no talent and stupid!! Anyway thanks be to GOD!!!!!

-- Posted by: janie pate at April 10, 2006 1:39 PM

I liked the show when it came on and still do. what else are you NUTS going to take off the air. king of queens and other show i liked i might give my cable . TO THE NUTS WHO LATING THE GOOD SHOWS OFF from debra traylor

-- Posted by: debra traylor at April 13, 2006 9:24 PM

Yes, Dear is a great show. The only problem with this show is with the Marketing Dept. There is no advertising/marketing the programs, which is what is killing them. I happened to come acrossed it by surfing TV channels....I was hooked the first time I viewed it. Unfortunately, I have never seen one commerical promoting the program. That is what hurt them!!! The show is the BEST one out there...hands down!!! BOO HOO to the producers who overlooked there downfall.

-- Posted by: Nstevens at April 18, 2006 4:21 PM

two of the hottest actresses three of the best comedy actors scince the 60s all gone in one shot no one hears or knows why cbs brings on new comers who dont even come close thanks to the casts of still standing and yes dear ps that young redhead from still standing will be a major star some day cute talented and sings like you wouldnt believe

-- Posted by: richie at May 8, 2006 7:48 PM

I am so disappointed that Yes Dear is cancelled, it was my favorite comedy. I can't believe that this show didn't even deserve to have a proper ending.
Please bring it back!

-- Posted by: Sharyn at May 21, 2006 10:47 AM

They should keep Yes, Dear. It is a GREAT show. My family really likes it. They need to keep the family shows, and I am sure we can due without another CSI (Crapiest Show Invented).

-- Posted by: Donna at May 21, 2006 7:32 PM

i REMEMBER when I SAW THE SHOW IT TOOK OVER THE FRESH PRINCE ON TBS. THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I EVER SAW IT AND I WAS MAD At first but when i started watching it became my favorit show i work late and i set my dvr so when i get home at night i can watch it that would be the worst thing CBS could is to cancle somthing like that and keep a show like the amazing race that show sucks or big brother. that guy who wanted to boycot CBS on wednesday is a idiot

PLEASE BRING YES DEAR BACK

-- Posted by: Cole at May 26, 2006 3:48 AM

I love that show and I really think if they do end it, they should do two things 1. Play the reruns 2. Have a season finally. That other person was right. They do not advertise it enough! I love that show, it is so funny! Those actors and actresses on there might not be big time actresses but they would gain popularity if the show were advertised more!

-- Posted by: Kristin at June 3, 2006 12:07 PM

I think it SUCKS that Yes, Dear has been cancelled. I love that show! There is NOTHING on TV these days. Now one of the VERY few shows I actually like is cancelled. They can at least mix up the reruns they air. Even on different channels I have come across the same rerun twice in one day. Seriously though, there are some lame shows on TV nowadays. WAY LAMER than Yes, Dear

-- Posted by: Rose J. at June 22, 2006 5:12 AM

This is such a funny show. I find it funnier than King of Queens. I don't understand why it was cancelled so suddenly. They truly do deserve a chance to say good-bye. It is not fair to the actors who put so many years in to the show. They had the rug pulled out from under them.

-- Posted by: Irene at June 28, 2006 10:11 AM

I think Yes, Dear was a wonderful show!!! This was my favorite show!

-- Posted by: Shannon at July 11, 2006 3:54 PM

I became a devoted Yes Dear fan by watching the re-runs on TBS. Ya see, I work late nights so I watch the program just before going to work. I find them highly addictive even though I have seen every episode. Try watching them with a hot cup of coffe in the afternoon. I wish to say: I will miss Jimmy and Christien Hughes and Greg and Kim Warner and most of all Roy because he likes things freaky. Later....

-- Posted by: Ryan at July 16, 2006 1:41 AM

i wish they would put yes dear back on it was a really funny show especially with a jimmiy and greg.that show was kiler funny BRING IT BACK CBS PLEASE. BECAUSE ITS NOT ON I DON'T EVEN LOOK AT CBS ANYMORE

-- Posted by: kevin at July 19, 2006 9:17 PM

Okay lets get one thing straight ... YES DEAR is the best thing that happened to any of the networks think of all the great shows that were inspired to be greater becuase of it. it saved a marriage, laughter is truly the greatest medicine and now that my laughter is gone ... my marriage might be as well. Protest to be held: Monday August 7, 2006 outside CBS headquatures in New York City. Starting around 12:30...everyone please come and support YES DEAR. we need to be a loud voice that brings it back. I am asking everyone to bring a posterboard with their favorite YES DEAR quote on it, or even just a protest sign. Thanks to everyone scheduling it, can't wait to see you all there! !^!#!YES DEAR ROX!*!&!

-- Posted by: Greta at July 26, 2006 11:57 PM

Reality TV bites!!! I wish they would have more shows like "Yes, Dear". I mean come on guys, they don't still air reruns of all those stupid reality shows, but "I Love Lucy" has been on air since it started and people still watch it! What are all you networks gunna run when the Reality TV craze is over? More crappy court TV shows, PLEASE, The whole reason we watch TV is for comic relief for our over stressed American Working lives. Who wants to watch more stress on TV in the form of Reality TV and court shows?

-- Posted by: Vanessa at July 30, 2006 8:54 PM

"Yes,Dear" is a GREAT movie which gives value to family comedy. Laughter is becoming a scarce resource on T.V. as so much negativity is aired all day long. A daily dose of laughter is everthemore important in today's turbulent environment, and "Yes, Dear" is the Best that could ever happen. :)

-- Posted by: Carlo at August 7, 2006 3:29 PM

I just got into yes, dear and i must say it is quite the laugh. i sure CBS sees this webpage and realizes what they have before its gone.

-- Posted by: Jaime at August 8, 2006 9:35 PM

Why in the world would cbs do such an idiotic thing by cancelling Yes,Dear? It was the best show they had. Now, I understand bringing new comedys in like Two and a Half Men and How I Met Your Mother but come on. Get rid of those crappy reality shows and get the comedy back on the air. Heck, i would be happy if cbs made an all comedy channel. I watch TBS everyday because of Yes,Dear and the Drew Carey Show. Screw CBS. TBS Rocks!

-- Posted by: Ben at August 9, 2006 2:01 PM

I really like this show and I was looking forward to seeing more of it. I stay up every evening just to watch the repeats. Its a family show that makes us remember classics such as All In The Family, Everybody Loves Raymond, and M.A.S.H. only they got to run until people were no longer interested. If CBS don't care what we like maybe we should change the channel!

-- Posted by: Jackie at August 11, 2006 1:24 AM

I AGREE THERE WERE SO MANY FUNNY EPISODES FOR YES DEAR I DID NOT UNDERSTAND AT ALL WHY THEY GOT RID OF THE SHOW, I DOUBT ANYONE COMES AND READ THIS INFO ON THIS SITE MAYBE TO GIVE AN OPINION HERE AND THERE AND THAT SUCKS BUT YES DEAR WAS GREAT BUT YOU KNOW DARN WELL THEY WONT BRING IT BACK, AND TO ANYONE THAT HAS MADE FUN OF THIS OH PLEASE, YOUR DEF. IN THE MINORITY. YES DEAR HAD SO MANY ACTORS THAT WERE POPULAR IN THEIR TIME, COUNTRY MUSIC SINGERS, JIMMY DOING HIS GUITAR SOLO AT THE HIGH SCHOOL REUNION NOW HOW FUNNY WAS THAT. WHEN THEY TOOK GREG OUT FOR HIS B-DAY AND PARTIED W/ POISON, I MEAN FROM MY HIGH SCHOOL DAYS WE ALL ACTED LIKE JIMMY HA HA HA HA AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. SO CBS YOUR VERY DUMB FOR GETTING RID OF THIS SHOW IT WAS THE BOMB.

-- Posted by: BETH at August 13, 2006 7:40 PM

I love Yes Dear!! I agree that the show obviously did not get enough pub during its regular season because I just happened upon the sitcom by accident. I watch as many reruns on TBS as possible. Very funny show!!!! What is wrong with the networks that want to broadcast nothing but played out reality shows and dumb dramas. Believe me in the state of our world, the people want to escape to some good comedy.

-- Posted by: btrfly14 at August 23, 2006 5:05 PM

WE WANT GREG..WE WANT GREG...WE WANT GREG.... WE WANT GREG

FRAN DRESSER ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THAT WOMEN NEEDS TO BE PUT BACK INTO THE GRAVE SHE POPPED OUTTA!
WE WANT GREG, WE WANT GREG

-- Posted by: DARFSKY at September 12, 2006 7:31 PM

Heyy, I'm a avid yes dear fan.Please could you bring back the best show I've ever seen! Please!! I love the comedy.It just wasen't fair that it diden't have a good ending, Its not fair that yesdear is ending!! :(

-- Posted by: david T. robinson at September 12, 2006 7:38 PM

Hey guys...its greta here again! Thanks for the great turn out at the protest. Its sad to say that our cries of, "Big Bad CBS...Great Big Yes!Dear!" went unheard. This is a retarded reason to have a show cancelled, i feel that a show with a loyal fan base such as Yes! Dear desevres the respect of being brought off the air in a respectful manor. Can you imagine having your lively hood being served to you on a platter named CANCELLED!! I can't. I feel we have to support the stars of YES! Dear in every venture they take on. Lets work together to make sure that they have hugely sucessful career post YES! Dear Success.

Thank you! I love you all and one day our love of yes! Dear will create a perfect society. Where spouses support, cherish and love each other in a manor similar to yes! dear.

-- Posted by: Greta at September 12, 2006 11:48 PM

So how about this year, not one night with NBC CBS ABC with any decent comedies at all. You thought it was bad before what do you think of this. Just when we find out it is true that laughter is the best medicine they put on Death and the desperate, now who's the biggest loser, and it will not take me two hours to tell you.

-- Posted by: sharon at September 26, 2006 4:14 PM

I am shocked yes dear was axed. I figured 6 seasons it was doing something right. I watched everyday with my 2 year old daughter. "Yes dear is on", she would go crazy. Sad state of affairs. Reality = LAME

-- Posted by: jim at September 26, 2006 5:23 PM

I can't believe that all these TV channels are basically becoming nothing more than reality tv... shows like yes dear, with REAL talent are getting cancelled to make way for cbs and nbc to basically try and compete with american idol or some other reality tv show. That's what it boils down to. Well I just wish cbs would just sign over the rights of the show to tbs and let them let the show go on, because all the local tv stations are nothing but crap now... court tv during the day, and reality tv at night, and the news... thank goodness for stations like tbs, family channel, tvland... they know how to show all the classics!

-- Posted by: Kim at October 7, 2006 5:44 AM

Why Did you get rid of yes dear and why did you cancel freinds why!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-- Posted by: Emma at February 1, 2007 3:27 PM

Yes,Dear was a breath of fresh air in my opinion, till this day watching the same reruns still make me laugh it was possibly at least in the top 20 of greatest sitcoms of all time. When I first saw it was when Jimmy first met Greg, and Greg got his ass kicked by Tidus while they played "I am A Man Who Will Fight for Your Honor" that was the most hilarious thing i've ever seen in my life they really should consider doing a reunion and ending it with a finale....

-- Posted by: carlos at April 4, 2007 4:17 PM

yes, dear is a great show and waaay more funny than king of queens. this show did have marketing problems buit that doenst mean it made the show bad enough to take off the air.

-- Posted by: Dan at April 29, 2007 10:33 AM

CBS was the best!!!!!! But they are falling fast What happened yes dear still standing and now king of queens!!!!!!!!!! get rid of the reallity shows they suck hope a cable channel will pick some of these up and keep them going.....Naa thats too good of an Idea or at least run new epiosodes during the summer!!!

-- Posted by: Anonymous at May 24, 2007 9:25 PM

It's a shame that these decent, well written, and funny sitcoms are going the way of the dinosaur. I can't take one more overly sensitive dramas, cop: hospital drama, or any "reality" show. I remember when TV used to make me laugh. Now the networks move the time slots around so much that if you don't have tivo you'll never catch you favorite show. Now with the demise of Raymond, Yes Dear, King of Queens, and probably Still Standing in the near future, there will be little to watch. I hope NBC holds on to Scrubs and the Office.

-- Posted by: Bret at July 18, 2007 12:53 AM

I really liked that show,as well as my room-mate, we both waited for it. Greg,Jimmy, Kim & Christine u guys rock come back.
Take off still standing or king of queens we don't need those.
This was a feel good show, and really should have been given a chance, we really miss this show, big time.
