Center of the Universe is an American sitcom that aired on CBS from October 27, 2004 until January 19, 2005.[1] The show was cancelled after 10 episodes aired. It was set in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma.

John Goodman starred as John Barnett, a good-natured and successful operator of a security company. Spencer Breslin plays his nutty, nerdy 12-year-old son.[2][3] The series involved the dependency of his entire family (except his wife, but including his parents) on John for everything--money, jobs, housing, and personal guidance in every decision.

Tagline: "The world doesn't revolve around John...but his family does."

A total of 15 episodes were produced.
