Yes, Dear is an American television sitcom created by Alan Kirschenbaum and Greg Garcia which follows Greg and Kim Warner, who struggle to be perfect parents to their son Sam, only for things to get more complicated when Kim's sister Christine, along with her husband Jimmy and their two children, move into their guest house.

First time parents Greg and Kim Warner believe in perfecting the job of parenting.
When it comes to his profession, as a motion picture executive, Greg is a winner but he stumbles when it comes to the fatherhood front. His wife, Kim, is a stay at home mom to little Sam and Emily and is obsessed with the idea of becoming a perfect mother and wife.
Her sister Christina Hughes continuously reminds her that "life will never be perfect". She's a mother too and her hubby Jimmy oozes with that care free spirit that Greg never dreams about.
He's unemployed, unconcerned and feels very much compelled to share his life philosophy about being a husband and a parent while still remaining a man with his stiff brother in law.
Yes, Dear's plots revolve around a child rearing, work, sex and often various combinations of the two couples constantly plotting against each other – Jimmy and Greg trying to manipulate each other or their wives.
If it's outlandish and stupid plots you're after or even get-rich quick schemes you're after – Jimmy is your man.
Greg is the perfect example of how a successful man should be and Jimmy, well he's the epitome of what every husband and father should be all about – oh yes, if you match the two you get a great combination of the perfect family man.
Yes, Dear is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, in association with CBS Productions. The executive producers are Alan Kirschenbaum and Greg Garcia.
Note: only the first three seasons aired on SABC2 and only the first season aired on SABC3.
