Yes, Dear is a comedy that aired on CBS in the early 2000's about two couples and their outrageously contrasting views on parenting. First-time parents Greg and Kim Warner, he a successful professional at a movie studio, are perfectionists who use all the latest parenting methods recommended in the latest books and magazines. While Kim is determined to be the perfect mother and perfect wife and to raise the perfect son, her sister, Christine Hughes, a very down-to-earth mother of two [four-year-old Dominic and one-year-old Logan], continually reminds her that life will never be perfect. Christine's husband, Jimmy, is employed as a security guard and unconcerned about living in Kim and Greg's guest house and feels compelled to share with his brother-in-law his philosophy about being a husband and a parent while still remaining a man.
