My take is that the producers realized that the lines are not funny and people will not laugh on their own. So they insert the laugh tracks assuming that the watchers are stupid enough to be tricked into thinking that those lines are funny.It’s not that simple. Research has shown that laughter is somewhat contagious. Watching a comedy alone will not be as amusing as if in a crowd. Laugh tracks are an attempt to compensate for the audience at each viewing site being so sm&se. anblp;lch
