First off, I've been enjoying this show, i liked Home Improvements and this is basically the same thing.
I'm about 5 min into the latest episode (s01e21, Wherefore Art Thou, Mike Baxter) and the laugh track has irritated me to the point where i've had to turn it off! The funny thing is i don't even recall hearing/noticing it in previous episodes.
Is it new, is it especially irritating in this episode, or is it just me?!
