Too many are just to raunchy. I don't want to have to feel embarrassed for the actors when watching something they do.
The old progams were the funniest....Married With Children, Carol Burnett Show, Alf, Benny Hill, etc.!
It offers pure comedy, satire, and fantastic actors.
I miss well written comedy sitcoms. They have been replaced with cheap reality shows.
I don't care for the canned laughter and the contrived plots. I can take just so much goofy misunderstanding story lines; then my short attention span kicks in.
They have gotten so bad that I never watch them.
I am a geek and proud of it. I love Sci-Fi and used to be a science geed in school. Being smart and into Sci-Fi was not cool for women when I was growing up. The show validates it is okay to be smart, different, and yes even a little geeky. – talking about “The Big Bang Theory”
They are not very good for the most part.
Most of them are terrible and I tend to watch PBS instead (still have rabbit ears on the TV).
The networks should all leave off the automated Laugh Track. (Some sitcoms have wisely done this already.) Don't tell us when to laugh, let us laugh when we think something is funny.
Most of them have laugh tracks, which I hate, so I don't watch very many sitcoms.
most of the network shows feature dumb, ineffective men; sharp tongued women who are incapable in many areas and smart alecky kids. We don't need to reinforce these stereotypes in the minds of another generation. look around, how many of you have ditzy moms or inept dads? Not many, I'm betting.
So many channels, so much drivel. I fear for this country if current TV is reflective of our society.
Anymore, sitcoms are very poor humor with canned laughter on top.
Unfortunately I am like the editor in that I too don't have a life so rarely am able to catch any show on tv, much less a sitcom.
My family just doesn't watch much of them. We prefer many of the basic cable shows. Particularly Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Swamp People, Deadliest Catch, and my personal obsession, The Walking Dead. (Is that because we benefits professionals often feel like we are the walking dead?)
There really are not that many sitcoms on any longer. When I do manage to watch TV, it is usually an hour long drama or sports.
In general, they are not funny
Never watch TV at all!
