Top Ten Worst Things About Sitcoms

The Top Ten

Annoying Laugh Tracks

The most PATHETIC sound of all time. Whoever invented the laugh track is a total fool. I can't ignore it and it just RUINS every funny scene for me and for many others, yes we know when to laugh, we don't need a load of loud screaming obnoxious laughter to signal when we need to laugh ourselves, the whole concept of it is basically to try and annoy people.

These things NEVER shut up, even if something stupid happens it still goes off, they must know nobody is gonna laugh at their jokes so they have to put that in.

God, it's so annoying that it has to go off at least five times a minute. Writers, only use it if you try to make a great joke that moves the plot and it works.

Even when I was like 7 laugh tracks annoyed me. I even complained to my mum "why do they have to use laugh tracks they're so annoying"

Boring Story to the Show

Even if they suck you should give credit to something like haunted hathaways or the thundermens for at least having an interesting plot, where as most sitcoms now are just about a normal family doing boring everyday things

Bad Comic Relief Characters

Frank from everybody loves Raymond - DaWyteNight

Joey from full house was 1 of the most insufferable characters ever put on T.V.

The Dumb Blonde
The Fat Dad Jokes

Don't worry one day that could change

I have nothing against fat people, I'm talking about the kind of overweight dads in sitcoms where the show is constantly having him say or do something and the writers think it's funny because "ha ha, he's fat"

They Have Tons of Sappy Moments

Nobody cares about your boyfriend. - RiverClanRocks

The "Cool Guy" Boyfriend/the Idiot Girlfriend

Both of these irritate me, but the idiot girlfriend is the worst, if sitcoms are trying to be realistic they shouldn't have these cause normal teenage girls are intelligent, just because they like to use phones or go shopping doesn't make them completely brain dead

How Many Seasons They Get

Full House got EIGHT SEASONS! What the hell? It amazes me that all these sitcoms get like a billion seasons, especially because they run out of episode ideas more often than modern SpongeBob

The Dumb Dad

Again, see Everybody Loves Raymond's Ray Baron. I wouldn't be surprised if his kids were smarter than he is. - DaWyteNight

My dad is awesome unlike the dads in these sitcoms. - RiverClanRocks

When will T.V. networks learn that THIS IS NOT FUNNY! Having an idiot dad character is just annoying

Crappy Theme Songs

The Contenders

The Selfish Mother
Most of Them Take Place in a House
Sexual Innuendos

Nowadays they just throw in these "jokes" that aren't actually funny and are just supposed to be funny for the fact that they're sexual. That stuff stops being funny once you've matured passed 15 years old. - DaWyteNight

People in the Audience Laugh Every 10 Seconds
The on & Off Romances
Clip Shows
Unrealistic
Formulaic Characters

You can pretty much bet money that if a new sitcom comes out it'll consist of these kind of characters: A jerky/rebellious character, a "quirky" character, a geeky character, a stupid character, and a goody-two-shoes main character

The Naggy Wife
The Wife Who Won't Have Sex with Her Husband
The Manchild Husband

Again, see Ray Barone - DaWyteNight

The Annoying Inlaws
The Loud Black Girl
The Male Character Who Only Thinks About Sex
Sarcasm

Stop sarcastic

Not Funny Anymore

Austin and Ally is the epitome of that sitcom which used misleading laugh tracks and no real humor.

20th century sitcoms were not nowadays.
