Shows that use laugh tracks need to be fucking destroyed. Laugh tracks are obnoxious.

That is all.

You hear people laughing, but you don't see them! Who ARE all these people?

And don't even get me started on Starbucks. Tall means small? What is this world coming to?

It's so ironic. But you know what's really ironic? Alanis Morisette!

Full House was so lame. Step by Step was far more superior.

Worst laugh track ever was the first season of Sports Night.

I once put a laugh-track on a sitcom that had no jokes in it!

It's weird, 99% of the shows with laugh tracks I absolutely hate. But then, some of my favs also have it. I think the older shows used it to enhance the humour, whereas now people use it to simulate humour. (Which it does, people are more likely to laugh if others are.... I could go into more detail, but basically people like feeling like part of a group.)



Black Adder, MASH (though reading about the history of the laugh track in this show is interesting), Fawlty Towers, etc....


What are peoples opinions on a live laughter (not including stand up comedians, sketch shows, etc)
