+1 on the laugh track. Another time I tried to watch the show Sheldon was using his laptop, then says something like: "Oh Ubuntu, it's no wonder I love you most of the Linux based operating systems…" and the crowd went wild. First of all, that isn't funny (not because of some bias against Ubuntu or Linux. It's like stating a fact about some regular product. He could have just as easily been talking about his favorite fabic softener); second, there's no way so many people in the audience would even have known what he was talking about.

So I turned the channel immediately because it was so unfunny. It may sound like I have it out for this show. Maybe I do, because not only is it not funny, but it's on constantly.
