Do you think television comedies should abandon the laugh track or is it a necessary tool to guide audiences through an episode?

That's interesting you bring up live audiences because I remember older shows used to say at the end they were filmed in front of a live audience which is why you'd hear laughs and other responses.
But your daughter's right- Brady Bunch isn't funny.
I didn't know Big Bang had a live audience but usually when I hear laughter on that show it's funny. However, you're right some shows simply have it just to make us try and laugh with the audience.
Thanks for teaches12345! I think it is annoying sometimes especially if the show's not that funny. But newer shows don't use it as much which is good so hopefully it's losing steam.
Yeah I agree. Some parts where the track comes in, I don't laugh. Not everyone thinks the designated funny part of a show is as funny as the writers and actors do. Besides, it gets distracting after a while.
