OT for a second, but I don't get the "I won't watch if it has a laugh track" crowd. Are you kidding me? You'll turn away from a quality show simply because a studio audience or canned laughter is piped into a broadcast? How obtuse.
Then I guess you wouldn't enjoy such classics as "All in the Family," "M*A*S*H" (the early years), "Cheers," "Seinfeld," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Welcome Back Kotter," "WKRP in Cincinnati," "The Cosby Show" - I could sit here all day and list the great shows with a laugh track/studio audience laughter. A great show is a great show, who cares who is or isn't laughing?
Back OT, I thoroughly enjoyed "Earl." I watched it again with my wife last night to see what she thought and she couldn't stop laughing either. Usually pilots make us squirm, but not this one. The kids strapped into the back of the El Camino (I think that's what the vehicle was), running away from Kenny as if he had some communicable disease when they realized he was gay, the getaway driver in the Bin Laden mask at the strip club - we were rolling. It'll be interesting to see if they can keep it up though.
