Yes, Dear Yes Dear TV Show

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

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 the upper-middle-class Warners contrast to the decidedly working-class, less-restrained Hugheses; Jimmy has an oafish personality and Christine is somewhat more crass. From the third season, the show's production and writing staff tried to move away from the stock-character humor, adding more physical comedy to the scripts in an effort to increase ratings.
