    I remember going to a live filming for the Disney show Raven's Home a few years ago. We were sitting there for about 5 hours, forced to watch these people acting out the exact same scenario repeatedly until the producers were satisfied, or until we stopped forcing laughs as hard. The only really funny part was when one of the actresses fell and almost had a wardrobe malfunction. I also remember thinking about if our laughter was actually going to end up in the aired episode, or if they'd replace it with the same generic laugh track every other show uses. I haven't actually watched the episode, but according to the print they gave us that had the actors signatures printed on it, the episode was called "Girls Just Wanna Have Phones," and according to Google, it's S3E11.

    Personally, I will always be a bigger fan of the multi cam, set in front of audience, laugh track style show. It will always have a place in my heart, and I always find it funnier and more cozy then most single cam no laugh track shows. Friends, Seinfeld, Big Bang, Frazier, Everybody Loves Raymond, Last Man Standing, and Married with Children will always be my top favs.

    This might be only me but you don't really mind the laugh track until you find a comedy show without a laugh track. It's like watching nick comedies with all these laugh tracks when you're younger, then watch a show like Parks and Rec without the laugh track. You just appreciate that the show isn't telling you to laugh at this moment.
