CBS has pulled the freshman John Goodman comedy "Center of the Universe" off the schedule, effective immediately.
The network will air "The King of Queens" reruns in the Wednesday 9:30 p.m. time slot until veteran "Yes, Dear" returns to the schedule and takes over the time period Feb. 16.
"King of Queens" and "Yes, Dear" ran in a Monday 8-9 p.m. block during the 2002-03 season.

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) There's a black hole in the middle of CBS' weekly schedule, as the network has removed the struggling freshman comedy "Center of the Universe." Since nature apparently abhors a vacuum, though, CBS has moved to fill that gap with the return of "Yes, Dear."
The John Goodman comedy has been pulled effective immediately and "Yes, Dear" will grab the Wednesday 9:30 p.m. ET time period starting on Feb. 16. The move will reunite "Yes, Dear" with its 2002-03 stablemate "The King of Queens" in a comedy block leading into "CSI: NY."
Despite one of the strongest comic casts on television, "Center of the Universe" never clicked when it premiered this fall. CBS delayed the show's premiere on several occasions, preferring procedural repeats as a lead-in for "CSI: NY." Since the show, which stars Goodman, Jean Smart, Olympia Dukakis and Ed Asner, launched in late October, it has averaged just over 9 million viewers per week, losing roughly 1.3 million viewers from "King of Queens."
Despite the show's middling ratings and harsh critical reviews, CBS ordered two addition episodes (beyond the original 13) and six new "Universe" scripts back in November. The comedy aired 12 episodes.

That's great news. Glad to hear Yes Dear is back! For me Center of the Universe just didn't cut it. I got the impression that John Goodman thinks he's hot stuff or something, just didn't sit well with me.
Thank you CBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
