Some people dislike TV comedies that are filmed before a live studio audience, because they find the sound of audience laughter disruptive.
It surprises me that people who are my age and older can find this disruptive, because for the longest time it was baseline for comedies. Cosby Show, Cheers, MASH, Gilligan's Island, I Love Lucy, Friends, Seinfeld, All In The Family, The Brady Bunch, Full House, Fresh Prince, even Monty Python - all kinds of major comedies over all eras of 20th century television had a live studio audience or a laugh track.
As moved from childhood to adulthood, I moved from children's television to sitcoms. I suspect many people made the same transition, since adult (in the sense of "not specifically intended for children") comedy is generally more comprehensible and entertaining to a young person than adult drama. And all the sitcoms were filmed before a live studio audience.
So basically everything that formed my whole concept of what television actually is was filmed before a live studio audience. And it seems like the same situation would stand for a lot of people.
This is why it surprises me that people whose formative television viewing was on similar shows would find it disruptive or distracting. It seems like it should be no more disruptive distracting than watching TV in black and white if your first television set was black and white. It might not be your very favourite format choice, but your brain should pretty much be immune to it.
