No joke, I just had “Mike & Molly” on for five minutes (for the first time ever)….and that laugh track is the most distracting and annoying thing I’ve heard on TV in a long, long time. On top of that, nothing at all funny is happening.
Come to think of it, CBS also overkills the laugh track on Big Bang and 2.5 Men, on the rare occasions I tune them in. I’m now totally spoiled by NBC and ABC’s comedy lineup….the one’s that don’t insult my intelligence by “prompting” me when it’s time to laugh. I know when something funny happens, and I can actually laugh, myself.
My conclusion: It’s just one more way CBS caters to the old, rather deaf people watching…an annoyingly loud laugh track. Unreal.
