"Lily's Boyfriend" -- John and Kate need to figure out why Lily will only go on dates with her new boyfriend if they come too, on CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE, Wednesday, Dec. 15 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Mark Cendrowski directed the episode from a script by Alan Kirschenbaum, one of the series' executive producers.
The whole family is thrilled when Lily introduces them to Ted, her new boyfriend, who seems to be quite a catch. However, when Ted mentions to John his frustration that Lily never goes on a date with him alone, John and Kate chalk it up to Lily being nervous about dating again after so many years of marriage. However, when John learns the real reason why, he realizes just how important he is to the family.
