CBS (Mondays, 8:30 p.m. ET)

When doofus new dad Greg Warner (Anthony Clark) discovers his uptight wife, Kim (Jean Louisa Kelly), has been secretly breast-feeding their year-old son, Kim explains, "I'm doing it for the boobs....I like having big boobs. Big, milk-filled boobs." Welcome to the boob tube, everybody. Yes, Dear purports to be about two young couples raising their kids in the same L.A. household—Kim's laid-back sister Christine Hughes (Liza Snyder) and her slothful spouse, Jimmy (Mike O'Malley), live in the Warners' guest house with their two toddler sons-but it's really about four infantile adults cracking dumb about sex. In one episode Jimmy sneaks up on Christine and paws her posterior. Christine (without turning): "Kim, the mailman's here." In another, Greg and Kim innocently befriend an older couple who, it turns out, are into swinging. "I like to be spanked," the old lech tells Kim. Better it should be the network execs who said yes to this dreck.

Bottom Line: No, dear. Not tonight. I have a headache
