I personlly like the live audiences I wishsitcoms would go back to it. Its just something about all those people laughing with you. I do see where some of you are coming from, if its not an accually audience it can seem like the editors are telling you what you should think is funny, or they think everything they write is funny.
I do have to say that I think it's benificial for the show. For 1 I think people have to pay to get in, so It brings in more money then a sucessful show like TBBT does. Also, I think It makes the acting better. I don't know any of you have ever acted in a play or something, but theres something about an audiance that keeps you on your toes. The idea that if you mess up theres a group of people to see, make you do the best you can.
Either way, TBBT is an Amazing show, and even though they have been move in the sam time slot as NBCs comedy its still striving, which shows that millions of people are watching and enjoying a great show every week without getting all hung up on little things like an audiance laughing.
