Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two couples share a home but not much else as they try to deal with the trials of parenthood in this half-hour situation comedy. Nerdy white-collar worker Greg Warner (Anthony Clark) and his wife Kim (Jean Louisa Kelly) are first-time parents learning to deal with the responsibilities of a new baby. While they get plenty of advice, they're not sure how much of it they should follow. They're sharing a home with Christine (Liza Snyder), Kim's sister, and her unemployed lout of a husband Jimmy (Mike O'Malley), who seem to think the best solution to any crisis is to park their two kids in front of the television and hope they forget what's bothering them. Yes, Dear debuted on the CBS television network on October 3, 2000.
