On February 15, 2006, the series finale of television's "Yes, Dear" danced across the airwaves and our hearts. A little part of America's soul died that night. That was the part that used to ask "why in the world is this show still on?"

Fortunately, America grew a new little replacement part of its soul almost immediately -- a part that asks, even to this day, "what keeps this dumb show in syndication?"

Wow. So (checking IMDB), this...wasn't completely fabricated by Woot staffers and hastily filmed with some minor actors--pretty sure I've seen the thinner wife on stage, but I don't recognize the others. It's an actual show, which I've apparently managed to avoid.

Good for me, I guess. Usually, I miss the really good shows. I'm not sure if that's an insult or compliment to Woot, though. Ah, it's Monday. Let's go with compliment.

Ahh...the vague memories of a generic sitcom one catches every once in a while when there's nothing else on.

Also, what about Walt Whitman coming back in a time machine and being killed as a witch? Maybe I don't know who Walt Whitman is...

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

One of my all time favorites. The Wootcast, I mean, not "Yes, Dear."

Was this the longest Wootcast ever? Or did it just seem like it was endless?

Why can't it be both?

Haha, loved this Woot cast! Made me sad that I don't have nearly as much time to be on Woot anymore

If you watch sitcoms, possibly you noticed that many of them have some really oddly decorated living rooms. By this I mean, things like fireplaces, and sometimes even the TV, are located BEHIND the sofa, not in front if it.

I remember the one episode of "Yes, Dear" when they addressed this.

In that episode, they rearranged their living room furniture such that their sofa now faced the fireplace.

Of course, that meant that their backs faced the camera. And they did the rest of their show that way, and that was the joke.

Clearly they've never seen the episode where the husband gets additicted to Afrin. Oh My Failing Grades!, one of the funniest sitcom episodes ever. It's on YouTube.

See, it was cross marketing, to go with the television side woot, and you totally lost the chance to enter out glorious modern age.

I watched simply because I thought Kim was pretty. I love that round face curly hair thing....

Because "Yes, Dear" outwardly resembles a generic sitcom, people often assume that it is one (without bothering to watch it). In actuality, it's a smartly written program that often parodies the types of clichés described.

The show's creator, Greg Garcia, went on to create "My Name Is Earl" and "Raising Hope," two series that have escaped unwarranted criticism because their single-camera style avoids the superficial resemblance to corny sitcoms.

A better target would have been "According to Jim," a truly stupid/formulaic sitcom that inexplicably dragged on for eight seasons.

6 seasons... Not seven as quoted in the clip.
