Man With a Plan Recast: Yes, Dear Vet Is Matt LeBlanc's New TV Wife

Matt LeBlanc will now be saying Yes, Dear to Liza Snyder.

The CBS sitcom vet will be taking over the role of LeBlanc’s wife in the network’s new fall comedy Man With a Plan, TVLine has learned. Snyder — best known for her six seasons on Yes, Dear — replaces The Office‘s Jenna Fischer, who exited the project shortly after it was ordered to series in May.

Snyder’s character, Andi, is Adam’s (LeBlanc) self-assured wife who returns to the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years, while Adam agrees to take on more parenting responsibilities.

Explaining the decision to replace Fischer, CBS president Glenn Geller said back in May, “[She] is a phenomenal actress, but it just wasn’t the actress for the right role, ultimately, when we saw the pilot. We think we can do better in terms of the chemistry between the two.”

Man With a Plan premieres Monday, Oct. 24 at 8:30/7:30c.

    Man, I was really excited about seeing Jenna Fischer again. Lisa Snyder has a certain charm to her though. Haven’t seen her on anything in a while so this should be interesting!

    Great to see Liza Snyder back in the CBS family replacing Jenna Fischer as Matt LeBlanc’s TV wife in Man With a Plan. We haven’t seen her in a very long time since Yes, Dear ended.

    Jenna Fischer was the reason I was going to check out this show. I guess I won’t bother now

  4. Victoria says:

    Jenna Fischer seemed wasted in the trailer so here’s hoping she finds something to show her comedic chops soon.

    You do not do that to Pam!

    • Phil says:

      Right – you give Pam her OWN show. There is no reason actresses of the calibre of Jenna Fischer or Alyson Hannigan (in her last failed CBS pilot) should be playing the wives. They should be the star.

    Liza Snyder was the best thing about Yes, Dear. She is smart, sexy and great at comedy.Hope the writing is sharp and witty, which they both deserve.
