All right, why does everyone hate the audience laughter all of a sudden? Why was it all right in sitcoms from the 70s, 80s and 90s? A lot of sitcoms in the 60s actuallyhad canned/fake laughter, like Dick Van Dyke The Munsters, I Dream of Jeannie . . .
I don't know why people hate it now and just automatically assume it's a "laugh track/canned laughter." It is the most annoying thing in the world. Were the people who went to tapings all dreaming?
Want proof that it's taped in front of an audience?Thisis where you get ticketshttp://www.audiencesunlimited.com/fmi/xsl/shows/browserecord.xsl?&Show=big+bang
And on the bloopers I cannot believe people think they added canned laughter to them. Seriously. That should be even more proof that it's done in front of 300 people.
I think it's because there's more comedies on now that are single camera and not done in front of an audience like "It's always sunny," "Modern Family," "Curb your enthusiasm," etc, and that seems more "in" but there are still SITCOMS on the air like there always have been. Single camera comedies don't need laughter. I love Modern Family and The Middle even though they don't have audience laughter and that's all right.
I really wish I could fly out to LA to see a taping of this show but I live in Western NY.
