    I liked Community and Parks. I heard the laugh track on Whitney and immediately changed it. They had me for about 30 seconds.
    Was it louder than a regular laugh track? I don't watch many shows with laugh tracks anymore, but I still watch a lot of old reruns with laugh tracks and it never seems that noticeable.

      I'm not sure what they did to it but as you said it was very noticeable. Seinfeld is the only show that ever worked with a laugh track.

        That's not true either. All the comedies back then had them. Cheers, Friends, Frasier, etc. I watch How I Met Your Mother from time to time and I think that has one too but you can't tell.

          Well I don't like Friends or Frasier. Cheers is alright but it didn't age that well. HIMYM is not as bad because it's actual audience laughter. They use it sparingly as well.

            • The comments about laugh tracks made me think of this.

                  But this one makes sense as every show in the seventies had a laugh track and they want to recreate that feel.

                  • For those around who enjoy Misfits, you might want to check out 'Fresh Meat'. If you've watched Inbetweeners it is very similar to that. Also watch Skins and IT Crowd.

                    • I HATE laugh tracks so much...

                      • NBC ratings for Thursday

                        Community: 1.7
                        Parks: 2.0
                        Office: 3.9
                        Whitney: 3.2

                        A few thoughts-

                        Big Bang got a 4.8 during the first half hour and a 5.0 during the second half hour against Community and Parks respectively. Really?

                        Whitney is lucky the Office is their lead in but I expect Whitney's rating to drop every week. Seriously, why didn't NBC put Up All Night or Free Agents in that timeslot? They would be both better off there.

                        • All we can do is pray for Community and hope they want to make sure they can sell it in syndication.

                          • The 1.7 is higher than I thought it'd be.. and yeah, expect Whitney to taaaaaaaaaaaank hardcore. I'm guessing low 2s next week.

                            edit: It's interesting to note that both Community and that awful show Outsourced did better in it's post-Office slot than Whitney did. That show is doa I think.

                            • We should have done a fantasy season based on what shows get cancelled or renewed like they did on Grantland.

                              • I wanna know why NBC doesn't consider moving its comedies to a different night. Or at least shift them all back 30 minutes to not go head to head with BBT.
