    1. I don't like them either, Parnip. To me, if a show needs laugh tracks then it's not funny enough to be a real comedy.

  15. And even more interesting, did you know that Bing Crosby himself came up with the concept of the laugh track. He invented it and patterned it, earning him a fortune beyond his own musical and acting skills. Brilliant man.
