Any show that needs to tell the viewers when to laugh, is - by definition - not funny enough.

This show itself may not be the work of the devil, but laugh tracks definitely are.
If I like the show enough, I find that I can ignore the laugh track pretty easily.
The only show that I actively watch where you can hear the laughs is The Red Green Show. And even then, it's not a laugh track - it's a studio audience. Not only that, but the audience is literally part of the show itself. So those are the reasons I can let it go.
Yeah, but shows like Two and a Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, and The Big Bang Theory are all shot before a live studio audience. The shows may record the audience responses and drop them in later, but that doesn't detract from the audience reaction to those shows. And on shows like Mother, scenes will be pre-taped and shown to the audiences in sequence for tapings precisely so their reactions can be recorded. So I'm really not getting your point.
