Monday 8:00 PM on CBSBetween Seasons
That is so funny that this is on the first page of threads... .I came here specifically to start a thread about that!
I tried to watch this show in its first season. Although it was one of the funniest shows I had seen in quite awhile i simply can't watch it. The laughing, whether real or track, is so loud and distracting that my brain ends up focusing on it. like the person above me said, every line of every character. I couldn't take it... I grabbed season 3 ep 1 hoping that it has changed, but it doesn't appear it has.
It is too bad that the executives feel we are too stupid to know when to laugh that they put that crap in there.... or it is too bad that they choose to mike the audience to include their annoying laughing. This could be a great show, but i guess i'll never know. I can't take the annoying, distracting laugh track!
|OK I am so sick of everybody being annoyed by it. Every TBBT board I go on has the same thread. It is a LIVE AUDIENCE not a laugh track. This is the way sitcoms have been for almost 60 years and I find the joke funnier. I don't have a problem with it at all and there are still a lot of sitcoms on the air today that use them. I don't like it in cartoons though. The only time a track is used is if they tape live on location and to "sweeten" the audience's laughter if they didn't get a big enough laugh for a joke. They're not going to just get rid of it just like that because they already have two seasons with it.|
|On one of the extras on a Friends DVD season one of the producers actually said that the audience helped improving the show. When something about the story is unclear or when a joke is difficult to understand they would ask the audience if they understood it or if they should change it. So the audience can serve a purpose other than providing a laugh track.|
