'Two and a Half Men' Gets a Groan Track

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 23rd 2010 9:28PM
Laugh tracks always amaze me. Just what kind of easily-amused simpletons do the networks hire to laugh at crappy sitcoms? I imagine it does something like this. A bunch of actors are wrangled into a studio and are told to pretend to be an interested audience. They are each given a secret dose of thorazine through a hidden syringe in their seats. Nitrous oxide is pumped into the studio. And just before the curtain goes up, they are each whacked across the face with a cast-iron shovel. Then they turn on the applause sign.

College Humor has taken this weird TV tradition and turned it on its head by providing a "groan track" to CBS' neverending sitcom 'Two-and-a-Half Men'.

Apparently the commentator has a very low IQ and can't hear the clip because all he hears is himself talking! This show is humor in America's homes of today, at it's finest!
If you've ever participated in a home environment setting where their are children, step-children, half brothers & half sisters, parents, step mothers & step fathers, live in friends, maids, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc., of all ages, you will relate. Not everyone escapes sarcasm while growing up & not everyone understands it right away either! Their are many personalities from a variety of pasts that play a role here. This is perfect humor for the mixed family environment that is created by divorce, second marraiges, lay-offs, & death. The show just gets better & better & is very, very funny on multiple platforms!

The brothers are so different in may ways except they both like being with women...except their Mom. She helps make it mandatory to see it their way, since she is quite unusual. The dentist being more cautious, and not as funny, or sought after...but clean cut, adds that twist, with his unusual first wife, and awkward son. It's more than a 2-1.2 star. Well Charlie is playing himself...may very or little acting...Great Show!!!

For one college students should be busy studying and not trying to be like someone in one of those lame fraternity movies! I enjoy 2 and a half men and think it has a unique humor typical of some bachelors and brothers. At least they aren't a bunch of black haters whining about they're unjust past or 2 gay men or women trying to pawn off they sick lifestyle on those of us who just want to laugh and be normal. I hope the show lasts 10 more seasons..lol

To all of the negative nay bobs of negativity concerning Charlie, Allen, and the sexual uneducated boy.

Please if you do not like this humor don't watch it!

The majority of America loves it! Just because you humorless nazis don't have a sense of humor and are mad at charlie for domestic abuse, Don't tell us what to watch! Get It!

I don't know where I have been since this show came on the air but I am watching re-runs and I think this show is one of the best. The writing, the themes, the humor. It is hilarious.

Two and a half men is funny and silly and the main star acts just like a jerk, drunkerd, womanizer, sarcastic etc.etc. bur we get a lauand that is it. Funny, funny yes! Disgusted with Sheen,s life yes, free country and he can live his life anyway he wishes. Those that should object are the women that like it and marry him.the country needs cheering up!
